After receiving the Lionel 224 freight set for his fifth
birthday, George Olson of Aromas, California, began
collecting trains, a hobby he is still involved in today.
In1980 he designed O gauge Rail Rax
® to display his
post war Lionel collection and established the Rail Rax
®
Company. Later designs included extrusions for
combination HO/S, and combination #1/G/Standard/O
gauges.
