    There's a lot of falling into that cart of yours!

    Found an Atlas Santa Fe C40-8W for a deal too good to pass up. Not sure what I'm going to run this with. Maybe a FVM GP60M?

    The most I might do is a case of cork roadbed.

    I am torn between spending on my hobby or a first for us flat screen TV. Yes we have two large tube TV's. I hope to buy two TVs. One for the living room where my wife of 31 years as of tomorrow can enjoy and one for the garage. The garage TV sure would help me get more done as watching Nascar or football while making trees or whatever sure makes me more productive.

    We'll see.

    Luckily TV prices are relatively low!

    What he said ^. Also, make your wife happy and get her the TV. I'm sure your tube TV is not that big and you can get a 50+ inch flat TV now a days for pretty cheap. It will change your viewing experience. And a small one for the garage can be had for less then $300, maybe even under $200 for the slightly less famous brands. Its for the garage so you don't need all the bells and whistle.

    Happy wife = more trains for you!

    You'll save money with electricity too if you get the TV.

    I've been doing some buying, selling, and horse trading to refocus my scope. Being a B&O guy, I noticed that a little bit less than 25% of my coal drag is actually B&O coal cars. So, I have been able to sell/ trade off some coal cars and received the twin bays below. The twin bays in the front row are all different numbers, the 4 cars in the back are duplicates.

    Three cabeese to add to the roster. With some added details, the red B&O caboose and the Yellow C&O Life-Like will be looking great.

    Not really my era, but they were B&O and neat.

    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!
