      So I went down to Hobby Lobby and took a look at what they
      had. In the end, I decided the Lionel just doesn't need a case. Here's why --

      This particular Lionel bug is NOT pristine, has NOT been
      restored, indeed it looks like a tool and not a showpiece. I finally
      decided that putting it in a display case would be akin to putting a
      ball peen hammer in a display case. Better to just treat it as a
      tool and USE it! :-)

      If I ever get the gumption to refinish it and make it look
      marvelous, I just might spring for a case -- but not right now, it
      would just be a little out of character.
