John, is the Signal function?????
No Harry. It doesnt work. It's for show. How is your working signal. I have seen it in Zcentral. Do you have any updates on it.
Does anybody know in the world all this people are bidding over $100 for a CSX Penzze. As far as I know, it looks like a normal CSX Penzee.
250037003379 is the ebay #
My guess is that the Chessie Penzee's are so hard to find, still that is really high. I got 6 of eBay this past summer for $110 including shipping.
Wow, it sold for a $100. Thats it. I am putting my CSX hoppers on ebay, and use the money to buy FR coal porters.
??? Birthday Present ???
Thursday is my 40th birthday! Yipee! Look what I found waiting for me in my shop this morning!
Wow! Almost finished! So many projects, only so much time!
John, this C44 should have looked like this last year this time. Darn NS AZL Paint!
Don't worry John, I won't claim it as a present!!!!!
FREAKING AWESOME JOB! Well worth the wait. Almost forgot, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Dont forget to run the happy bithday train.
Happy Birthday Tim! What a ugly paint scheme! How about a Maersk Sealand SD40-2?
SD40-2 Maersk Sealand
I need to create the decals, print them and apply them to the loco. Dull coat and finished. This week I hope to have the entire Maersk Sealand Train finished. I will put all of it in a big box and ship it on it's way!
I hope to finish all current projects this week! Jeffrey White is breathing down my neck wanting to know when I will have time to start his stuff! Calm down Jeffrey! This week! :teeth: Kidding!
Ok, back to work Tim!!!
Jurg, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If want to see a really uglyl color scheme, MTL is releasing one in January.
If you are actually serious about getting rid of any Chessie hoppers let me know, I'm always on the look out, but I won't be paying $100 each for a Penzee either
I am always interested in a trade.
Some might think Southern Pacific's Bloody Nose paint scheme is ugly, but I think it looks ok! Now, the Cotton Belt Bloody Nose is Awesome!
What's the difference! Not much! Just like it better. Grew up watching it go by nearly every day! Cotton Belt !!!!! When centerflow hoppers are mass produced in plastic, Tim will be getting together a Cotton Belt Train! :teeth:
I have some brand new Conrail hoppers from Penzee I'd be interested in trading for some Chessie's. Or if you're interested in selling any Chessie's email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
John, I'm a Rio Grande Fan! BTW the SD40-2 that Tim painted for me (Maersk-Sealand) was a CSX bevor. And the next SD40-2 that he will paint in Milwaukee paint scheme for me is a BN.
Jurg, whats wrong with you. If you have to strip a engine, use a NS. Everybody knows that NS are made to be strip.
LOL, the CSX was a cheap buy on epray but you'r right NS are made to be strip.
Just don't ever let me catch you pulling a Jeffrey White and painting over a AT&SF or BNSF, in Jeffrey's case! Just wrong to deface Heritage like that! Ugh!
50/50 chance I will strip the NS Stealth paint to un-cover the true identity of the undercover agent posing as, of all things, a NS loco!
He has till Christmas to get it. After Christmas it is mine!
Tim, thats what I though. To deface a Heritage BNSF is just not right. At least with ATSF, there is enought of them. I bet the paint is still there, but I am not sure about the logos.
Happy Birthday Timmy B. Welcome to wrong side of 40. May you have many more.
