    If 17" is your minimum radius, virtually ANY N scale equipment will look good running on it!

    You left Unitrack off your list of factions of N scale track warriors!

    Maybe it's just me, but if just the entries and exits on curves can be held to longer radii (i.e. sectional track 'easements'), the trains run and look better, without consuming the space of a similar overall minimum radius. I wish the modular standards would incorporate this.

    I won 3 Micro-Trains assorted 50' boxcars and a 39' tank car. I should get them early next week.

    Hmm... if Kiz keeps buy-
    ing rolling stock, there'll
    only be 6 inches of open
    track on his layout...

    That'll be enough room to add a couple more box cars, and hitch the tail of the caboose to the nose of the loco!

    Wow, lucked out today at the LTS! Owner was trying to clear out a bunch of older N scale stuff so I wound up leaving with a box with probably 25 sections of Unitrack and 21 pieces of rolling stock!

    Another trip to the LHS for styrene strips ended with buying rolling stock. This time, a MT 40' B&O boxcar. It doesn't particularly fit my locale, but that beautiful MT craftsmanship swayed me once again.

    Busy day here. First a trip to the LHS for a few little things:

    Then when I got home I order a few more little things that the LHS did not have. Then the postal service dropped off my latest auction site purchase.

    Then purchased a set of 1:1 tires for the Ntrak club's trailer.

    Traveled for work the last couple of weeks and had a few things come in while I was gone:

    2x sets of 53’ Maxi-I well cars from Kato
    3x 53’ well cars from JTC
    6x 40’ chassis from JTC
    And a P42 and some Amfleets (some from the ACS-64 set and some separate) for my version of the Hiawatha. I put the ACS-64 loco and the cafe car aside for sale or trade.

    My latest N scale purchase was 5 Mini Prints. I now have a new respect for the painted and finished figures from anyone. These are tough to paint, but I don't see to many people getting so close to tell the color of their eyes.

    That’s a great job on the loading dock by the way!

    Yes, I thought trucks/couplers were wrong. Turns out, they are NOT. Comes this way from Micro trains!!
    Found photo of a brand new car. Exactly the same as mine.
    Seller had a deal, buy 4, get cheapest on Free.

    Brookside car was cheapest, at $5.
    Vendor said give you different car free, since this one is only $5.
    Paid $120 for everything.

    Even got free lunch both days!!
    Ended up knowing the guy running concessions at show.
    A good friend of my BIL, member of his band!

    Not a bad weekend, other than having to get up way to early! :LOL:

    Picked up some Canadian covered hoppers at the Altoona N Scale Weekend. Got fifteen cars for $90.00. These are Model Power cars and the detail is not great but running NTRAK my stuff gets handled quite often and I have found that all the nice little details that increase the price soon disappear so I don't bother with the high price stuff. They need about .5 oz of weight to be close to NMRA recommended weight but that and MT couplers I have so everything is good. Also got a CP caboose to go with the cars and my two CP SD40-2's.

    Had a Model Power 2-6-0, some Woodland Scenics track inclines and a dozen tank cars show up on the doorstep. Also, sold a couple of engines on ebay. Not railroad/train related but did pick up a Rossi Model 92 rifle in .357 Magnum for Cowboy Action Shooting [and REALLY fun plinking!].

    A book. The wife and I were in an antique shop in southern Indiana when she alerted me some RR magazines and behind them was this book, The R.G.S
    Story, Rio Grande Southern. It's by Collman,McCoy, & Graves and it's a BIG book. This is only volume IV, "Over the bridges...Ophir to Rico and it's 498 pages. It's loaded with some great photo's, both b&w and color and lots of text. It was only $9.99 and my wife said to me "you are getting this!" and the way she said it I was afraid not to. I don't know just how many volumes there are but from just thumbing through this one, if you had them all you would probably have everything you would need to know about the RGS. She may end up regreating forcing me to buy it when I get hooked on narrow gauge and use what's left of our retirement funds to buy brass engines. If not it's heavy enough to use as a weight to hold senery foam down while the glue dries.
