I hate sounding like a social deviant but...
Even though my train set had the usual imaginative accessories (trestles, signs, etc.) sooner or later my friends and I would stage elaborate train wrecks, usually around the 'the bridge is out!' theme. This usually involved driving the train as fast as you could straight up a dead end ramp and into a bunch of other staged toys. Toys had a hard life around me - they were either fun or were involved in horrible train wrecks. Then one day I smoked the transformer by forgetting to unplug it and that was that for a while...
