Jerry’s dad was a toy train dealer. He began collecting his toys at 18 and has continued to collect them until now and he is 67. He has collected more than 10,000 figurines, 700 stations, along with over 1,600 trains. Mr. Greene has been taking his collection to thousands of toy fairs and shows.

He has some amazing pieces that include structures that were bombed and destroyed in World War Two bombings. These toys are also handmade and include toys from Marklin, Bing, Ernst Plank Carette, and Rock & Craner. He also has a station that is said to be the only of its kind that has a double door in its center. The collection is worth at least 8 figures.
