    Don't know running quality yet, haven't tried.
    Also available in Red. Ordered both, but specific dealer
    didn't have the Red in stock any longer. Might have new
    stock in, in 7-10 days, so their website states. Shall find out!

    They sold out extremely quickly. It's always a guess as to what quantity to make of any Special Run, as we never know what is going to strike people's fancy, so we give it our best shot. It's funny- something the Prince Spaghetti Trailer which is Prototype, we over estimate, and something like these reefers, we dramatically under estimate! You'd think after 30 years we'd get it right, but N Scalers are an unpredictable bunch.

    Looked like some articles of interest and some heavyweight diaphragms. Now to see if I can adapt those to MT cars.

    Post human delivered this today. Moose used to have a subscription to this magazine, but let it lapse earlier this year.

    Sooo why did this show up?

    Maybe Moose is going senile and actually resubscribed?

    It’s a shame that Walthers stopped making some of these in N scale before I got into the hobby-happy I could pick these up. I got another Bralick coming too. I’m going to keep pickup out of print structure kits over the next couple years for the basement empire when I get back to the US.

    Remote switch machines, 3 Left, 2 Right. Bought all the Left they had. Not sure if I want or need others yet. Or what I need, if so? Should have said supported the local hobby shop :) Went there to get these and of course look around.

    I got a light up magnifying glass to help assemble stuff. Decided I also need one more movable so got one that goes on my head as well. And of course I continue to dream. And enjoy seeing what others are doing and how they do it.

    I have the lumber yard on my coffee table layout. If after assembling to your satisfaction and you have a couple of left over doors let me know:)(y)

    I picked up a couple of the ST Dash-9's recently myself. They're quite nice!

    Looks like an MU hose got loose on yours and found its way to a walkway (or it was put there for safe keeping).

    You are absolutely correct and I totally missed that. However, it is a spare apparently as my locomotive has it on both ends. Enjoy yours!

    There is a flea market next to where I live, with a store selling used model trains
    Got this one for $50 (it was listed $65 but he gave me a $15 discount)
    It's an Alco S2 from Atlas (Silver Series) - Apparently still new in box, was never run
    And since I traded in 2 items that I wouldn't use anymore, I ended up paying $25
    Now, I need to look at what decoder fits into it.....

    And I, wearing my red suit and fake white beard, pulled the trigger on two BLI DCC and sound PRR SW7's. They should be here on Monday. Santa is such a nice guy.

    Speaking of Santa, he just stopped by my house. Apparently these presents were scheduled for delivery a few years ago, but they fell out of the sleigh just before take off. An unknowing elf placed the present on the second had shelf. Santa apologized for the elf not bringing this delivery oversight to his attention until now. :ROFLMAO:

    OK just trying to get into the Christmas spirit. What really happened, I ended up spotting the SW1500 on a well known internet website for a very good price. It was listed as preowned, but looks like it was never taken out of the jewel case. I then found the SW1 at a local hobby shop for 20% off list price and fingered it would be the perfect companion for the SW1500.
    So without further ado, the Long Valley branch has now added a Micro-Trains BN SW1500 and Arnold BN SW1 to the roster.

    My switcher roster continues to grow :)
