    Bought a rechargeable 10W Construction style light, great for having light under the layout. 15 euro's , bargain.

    As long as I can model in N-scale, I know I'm not old

    I've seen some of the those LED worklights on the job, can't believe how bright those things are?
    You should have plenty of good lighting now Jan!

    I had to purchase a new hard-drive, as mine died. I lost everything (photos for last three years). Who knows where my thumb drives are hiding? Also received second Shapeways DDF40A for Bachmann DD40AX DCC frame. I soaked both another two days in Goo Gone, then washed with Dawn, and finally an Alcohol wash. I have sufficient brass parts for total detail job. Have to choose paint. Likely Alaska RR 60s Yellow/Gold side on Black, or 80s Yellow/Blue scheme. Size (length) comparison with Centipedes.

    I ordered three signals that will be protecting the abandoned crossing near Fordyce.



    I ordered these from www.customsignalsystems.com out of Utah. They are a single colored LED as they are just for looks.
    The green will be for the main and the Red will be for the abandoned track that'll be used for Gavilon Fertilizer.
    The colors are much richer with the naked eye than through the camera.

    These look great. Are they kits or do they come assembled?

    I'm happy with them.
    I think the only way they come are assembled?
    I know a ladder comes stock, but you can upgrade the ladder to include a platform which is what I did.
    There are a few more options.

    He'll build pretty much whatever you need.

    They come wired and ready to install, and the wires are marked.
    They are designed to be powered from a 12Vdc supply and he connects the proper resistor for the LED's.

    The ones I had made are a single LED for my needs, but they can be made with Tri-Color LED's if so desired.

    Attended a train show this weekend and found a few good deals. The main one is a pristine Kato GP50 in BN white face that said it needed work. I took it apart and it looks like it has never been run. I applied power to the motor and it spins perfectly. I'll do a little more work on it and see about adding DCC.
    Also found an LBF BN 50' box car, an SP woodchip (looks like an LBF), a couple Hays Brothers scrap loads for 65' gondolals, a Life-Like SW1200 shell undec with the wipers intact.
    And finally an MTL FEC Ortner hopper...not sure but I'm thinking of stripping it for MOW service.

    Shapeways UP Propane Turbine shell. Will fit onto ConCor Turbine frame. They have a deal today (Monday) with 10% off and free shipping. Normal cost is $72,00 plus around $5 shipping. With Code "MAKEYOUR HOLIDAY", I saved around $13. I have been working on a conversion using a ConCor Veranda shell, but with two powered frames, and kitbash close to impossible (filing door inserts a pain), I'm taking easy way out. But will eventually have two units.

    You can probably sell your old shell for a good portion of that if you wanted to recoup... I wish I had the 3D plans for some of these since I could print for free.

    I'm not allowed to run the train, the whistle I can't blow. I'm not allowed to say how fast the Railroad Train can go.
    I'm not allowed to shoot off steam, nor even clang the bell. But let the damned Train jump the track, and see who catches hell!

    Received today: a pair of GP60s. Pictured with freshly installed ESU Lokpilot decoders. Next week I'll have time to set up the decoders and speed match them.

    Acquired an Atlas Alco S2 with LokSound sound last week at LHS for $180. It comes with engine noise: idling, power up/down and can be shut off. However, the engine noise comes on when DCC is applied; this can be changed. Engine cannot be used on DC. Both lights are dim at idle but the forward light becomes brighter. Rule 17? Various sounds include bell, several horns, radio, coupler clank, etc. Now if an engineer can be placed in the cab.

    Also purchased at the time: tools, sand paper, glue (wood & plastic) and clamps.

    Received the following this morning:

    Bachmann DCC 2-6-0 and
    MRC Prodigy Explorer DCC system

    Both for my wife's small oval layout and both are great. I am very surprised by the Bachmann engine though, it runs very well and pretty smoothly even at slow speeds - it is a nice little engine.

    I'm equally impressed with the MRC. It is small and simple to use, nothing particularly high tech in terms of basic use and can (apparently) run up to 4 engines - not that she ever will. This is an affordable little, uncomplicated, ideal system for anyone with a small layout. The only thing I have against the MRC is the same as the NCE, no ON/OFF button requiring it to be physically unplugged. If both manufacturers added that ability they would both be "perfect".
