    I can barely believe it myself, Moose. And there is an amazing story that goes with it. I wish I could just tell it because I don't really want to type it. Photos are a a possibility.

    Sooooo many things...

    None N scale though, so if that bothers you, move along! :P

    5 packs of O scale Kadee couplers, some Aviation shears for cutting brass sheet, some brass tube for scratchbuilding, some O scale people, some small nuts and bolts for holding trucks onto freight cars, and then these:

    AAR locomotive truck sideframes for a scratchbuild project:




    An Atlas (?) kitbuilt caboose and a Lionel 2-rail converted tank car:




    And a Lionel 3 rail Southern caboose, which will be converted to 2-rail as soon as the nuts and bolts arrive that I'll be using to fix the 2 rail trucks to it.




    I also got a 2' x 3' cork pinboard to use as a base for an On30 micro layout.

    Update to the Airbrush ... as it turned out the company I ordered the airbrush through, AIRBRUSH.COM (who I had never used before, nor will again) couldn't be bothered responding to any of the three (3) emails I sent them about the order and when I called the so called "customer service guy" presented an attitude of "really, couldn't care less".

    As such, the order was immediately cancelled and re-purchased through tcpglobal.com I will have the airbrush this Thursday along with a 25 piece cleaning kit for the brush.



    Also picked up three (3) Micro Train 50' Undecorated Box Cars for my wife's layout:

    First train show in over a year and I ended up making out pretty well.
    Picked up some rolling stock for a decent price but the real wins are some unique buildings, a Kestrel "Large Factory" and a Vollmer "Shopping Complex". Honestly not sure if the whole Vollmer kit is there with the way it's packaged but should be interesting.

    *edit* If anyone happens to know the guy that sells these bulk set of locos and cars in foam (and sealed in plastic), could you find out where he gets his pick-n-pull foam? Could really use some for putting together my travel case. I picked these up at the Lakeland College show in Ohio.

    Nice buys and yeah, the kit looks a little suspect but as they say - you can't judge a book by its cover.

    It's in the original (but really beat up) box, they just didn't manufacture pieces into organized trees like they do with modern kits so it's hard to get an idea of what's supposed to be there.

    That kestrel kit is great, they build up quite nicely. The roof is 50% large windows, though, so it does really benefit from a detailed interior, if you can make one.

    I used to wonder what the strange locomotives with the long "porches" were... Then I grew to love the SD40-2, even more so when I heard how great they sound. Love that turbo whine! So, today I picked up a BC Rail SD40-2 with sound

    Now to play the waiting game until it gets here....

    Don't you hate that - buying and paying for something then being at the mercy of the retailer and having to wait for it get to you.

    Great looking loco though!

    My new Iwata and Cleaning arrived this morning, it looks nice, very nice





    There's also a 500 mil plastic bottle that came with the kit. The only thing that is disappointing is it did not come in a case of any type.

    Bought this...



    Kept running out of glue and I'm planning to do a whole lot more scenery, so I bought a gallon of glue.

    I've just ordered a bulk pack of automotive wheel weights for weighting down my freight car collection to a more realistic level.
