    2 SW1200 from Walthers in Santa Fe zebra livery




    And a special cable tacker , to tack round cables but also flat ones and LED strips.

    After 30 (PLUS) years of keeping all my locos & rolling stock in an old Army footlocker and more recently plastic totes & bins, I bit the bullet and bought one of these.
    EDIT: THIS THEIR STOCK PICTURE OF THE DISPLAY CASE - NOT MY TRAINS!
    N Scale Set of 10 Full 01.jpgI probably should have bought two? But this will do for now. I can even add onto it, if I need to. And yes, I know I could have built one. But, my wood working skills are not so good. At least now, I can display all the nice ones I've been collecting and they'll look good. I plan on throwing some LED lighting in there, also.

    And if you don't mind me asking, how much do they charge? What about shipping cost for something that bulky (I'm assuming you put it together so maybe not that bulky)?

    Are those the new release, Janbouli? Sure are tempting. If they run as well as the earlier version, and look better on the rail with the smaller flanges, and are DCC ready, well, good for Walthers.

    Has @Spookshow reviewed them yet? There's the litmus test, far as I'm concerned.

    @kingmeow - $215 for the case + $46.65 for shipping = $261.65 They are in Huntington Beach, CA & shipping is dependent on where you live. No taxes though, as I don't live in CA.

    Hello, my name is Tim and I'm an addict.
    Went to a train show today with my folks, hadn't really planned to but was a last minute change of plans. I had mentioned how I had to slow down a bit and of course my dad jinxed me saying "What do you bet you'll find everything you're looking for today?"
    Needless to say, yes, I did lol. Biggest score was finding all 3 Atlas AC&Y H15-44s



    I already had the Youghigheny GP shell but I found a custom lettered caboose to go with it (YGHY), the 3-pack of airslides will become cushion cars for my GATX TankTrain, a pair of Goodyear tank cars, and I just thought the coach would look cool with my other old-time coaches. Then there's ACY #200-202.


    Also got a good bit of scenery stuff (the orange bag is literally thousands of N-scale oranges), and some British steam decals from Cav'ndish.

    Not much to review really. Internally they use the same basic mech as the MTL SW1500 (which I rated an A). And apart from the new lightboard wiring and isolated motor contacts (which provide DCC-Readiness), they're basically the same as the 2012 run of SW1200's (which I also rated an A).
