Lionel 2243 Warbonnet Santa Fe
The 2243 Santa Fe F3 A unit. Original. Circa. 1955-57
My dad bought me a 2243 at some yard sale when I was a pre-teen. One day in 1977 when I was nineteen, he got tired of seeing all of my electronic junk in his garage, and he took it all to the dump. I was sound asleep. He was always up early. Of all my stuff (junk to him and I understand why he would feel that way), what made me the saddest, the most hurt, was the box under the table with my Santa Fe 2243, track, transformer (1033) and cars were gone to the Billerica landfill for good.
