    It’s here, holy moly this thing is tiny. Says 1:160 and looks right to me. I’ll post comparison in the thread taking about these. I’m happy. Think I might get a couple more now?

    I-M FP7's are still out there in other road names although far and few between. I have a couple that will be painted for WP.
    A Kato FP7 could also easily be repainted. No kit bashing required for either.

    What are you planning to do if you kit bash one?

    I have one of these little guys too. It looked way too small when I first got it, but I looked up the dimensions and got out my mic, and sure enough it’s within inches of the real thing.

    I forgot I ordered these a few months ago, and here they be!

    I ordered 2 but they are both the same, one to take to shows, one to keep on my home layout.

    Hope I did good on the VO-1000 for the price. Also Remote switches for $6.99 each? And 10 roadbeds $1.39 each. And I know it’s train’s but a cool 1:144 Junkers JU-52 for $15.00. Local hobby shop today.

    Back To the Future, I mean Past. I saw these at least 3 times over the last 6 months. I thought not bad for Manual switches and passed on them. Today opened one up and realized they were remote wrapped in now brown paper. 1979 on the instructions, and Junkers model 2002. Thought it was older. I was wrong. These are Standard switches right? Couldn't pass up the price and brand new!

    Those turnouts are the good ones. They are the Made In USA(!) ones.

    Those switches have been around for a long time. I had several when I was into N gauge in the '90s.
    And I would love to have the Junkers as well.

    First time seeing the Atlas Trinity tankers and they are very well done. Also got the decals I designed and sent to Circus City Decals for printing. Real happy with how they turned out. Matthew over there was able to fix the artwork I sent him to get real clean printing even for the tiny data. Custom prints require a full page order so wound up being 24 sets.

    Finally got my second HB-E300 train today. I’m planning on making a mainly passenger service layout that has both inner city and cross country trains. This is part of my inner city lines.

    Just received my two boxcabs from Shapeways this evening. And they are ready to go in a bath of Simple Green cleaner overnight. They are designed for the 44 tonner mechanism but with some careful filing and sanding I could get them on a Kato mechanism. Have not decided on which route I will follow.
