    Torsja, excellent scenery. Can't wait to see the end result. The mountain must be at least a meter high.

    Mark,

    I look forward to getting some of those new Gunderson 50' boxcars as well as the airslides. Any update on the Pup trailers?

    We have a whole litter of pups, Randy. I will get photos up on a server within the next few days. Price is $9 each.

    I aim to run the first test shots of the Gunderson 50' cars this weekend. the basic CAD work is complete - just the tweaking to do.

    Wow, the scenery-to-trains ratio advantage Z has even over N scale is readily apparent here...

    Torsja, I love the way the s curve has to be there. Excellent track planning.

    Hey, It might not be a fish tank. The tank is not full, so it could be a turtle tank, and Steve, go back to work. You know Mark is a tought boss who has customers that are very demanding. [​IMG]

    Mark, becareful of taking order from Bryan. I heard he spend all his money on cabforward, so his check might bounce. Just fill my order first, at least I have money on the bank, because I can't afford a cabforward. [​IMG]

    Nice try, John, but Mark already knows me. You're not cutting in line THIS TIME!! ;)

    Besides, I don't write checks for trains, and I don't buy what I can't afford. Which is why, since its tax time, I won't be buying anything else for six months! :mad:

    Great, more NS SD70's to strip. :D I really doubt you will go six month without buying anything. Its like six months without sunshine. [​IMG] Its going to be torture. We know you just have to dip into that Swiss account of yours.

    It is really a slow month. Nothing new of interest. I dont think Yahoo has more then 50 post this week.Where is everybody. I am so bored that I starting to build my 48' containers.

    Jurg, rich people in the US hide their money in Swiss bank accounts.

    John,

    It's spring break (or Easter holiday in some places) this week, so lot's of folks are out.

    I'm curious what 48' containers you are building? Scratch or is there a kit I haven't heard about. By the way, I just saw a photo of a CHINA SHIPPING 48' container in China. I thought no one else used 48' and 53' foot containers beside North America.

    Mark, I should be send ing you an order as soon as you announce the Gundersons are ready. I can't wait to see what's next.

    Thanks,
    Randy

    Randy, what is like to take a vacation. :D I thought you just to work all the time.

    I am kitbashing a 40' and 20' container into one 48' container. Since the Maxi-3 can carry a 48', I wanted to use all the avairlable space.
    Now I have enought different containers to break the all 40' double stack look. It just look too uniform. I like the look of 53' 40' and 48' double stack. Also run some single stack just to break up the uniform look.

    Neat idea John (the container bash not the vacation ;) .

    I'm actually at work today, I just subscribe to the Robert Ray philosphy of internet train forums. I keep them open in the background and check in periodically instead of taking smoke breaks like other folks do. Trains are the only "high" I need. ;)
