    One of the lots I bought this month came with a bunch of flatcars w/ military loads. I don't model military stuff so does anyone know what these are potentially worth? Flatcars are MTL w/ MTL trucks and I believe the tanks / personnel carriers are Roco / Herpa but not sure (tops of tanks move).

    EDIT: Sold these, rapidly had a few interested buyers so probably could have sold them for a bit more but did well and have some money in Paypal again for buying trains.

    Ok this is not a locomotive, neither a car or some pieces of equipments in N Scale, but I think it belong to this thread...



    In the province of Quebec they finally allow people to personalize our licence plate. I am pretty sure we are the last state/province to permit this practice in North America...
    So I decide to jump in and bought this one!

    Didn't buy a bunch of new stuff last week.


    Did pick up another Amtrak engine/3 car set as one of the cars from my original set got busted up from a fall to the floor. Couldn't find the individual car, so bought another set. I have some spares now at least. Have some stuff coming sometime this week, and who knows what I might get next.

    Per promise when I started the thread here are the lots I purchased earlier this month... This is the rolling stock (after a number of hours of repairs / reassembly), the lots also included 2x Athearn Big Boys w/ DCC & Sound (I am still working on getting them to run) and a Kato NW2 w/ DCC (Southern). I just sold the military stuff and almost broke even on the lots (although any money in just goes back out for more trains). I will also sell the Rio Grande Passenger cars and maybe some others. Waiting for a pretty large order of parts from MBK so that I can replace stirrups and brake wheels etc... on a bunch of units.

    Another order from earlier this month were some Japanese Engines. I have been looking for a DD51 Switcher (I have a DD13 and they are cool little center-cab switchers so this is their big brother) as well as a Super Slug D51 (that completes my D51 collection). The DD51 came with a couple of other diesels different than what I have and I also went ahead and added a C50 steam engine (the one I had was missing the front plate / plow so I wanted to see if I can copy this one) -- when shipping from Japan might as well get a few things at once.

    Mac, you plan to keep all these or sell some off at train shows, eBay, etc. and keep the ones you want? That's a lot of rolling stock.

    I know -- more than I expected!

    I sold the military stuff and will sell the Rio Grand Silver Passenger cars. I can use the Kato/Con-Cor tankers and MTL Tankers as well as 3-bay covered hoppers << I would like to try to trade to reduce duplicates (i'd prefer a collection with one of each roadname / logo / style car). I think I will probably keep the bulkhead and center-beam flats with loads as well as any other flat cars including the articulated ones or the bridge one (eventually I would like to make custom loads -- that looks like fun). I have been looking for some old-time passenger cars so will keep those (although they are not my ideal roadnames they match some of my old time steam engines -- may trade if option presents itself). I have too many boxcars so need to go through these and what I have and sell off a bunch (e.g., I do not need 6 New Haven box cars).

    This was actually 3 lots all from the same seller. Very good price although there were/are some issues -- e.g., they were all just thrown in 6 boxes / drawers (the things they are in for the picture) and the whole drawer was wrapped w/ bubble wrap (so lazy / irresponsible). So they had a tough trip and I spent hours putting them back together (that is also why I have $100+ worth of MTL parts coming from MBK). They also have green or purple paint on the bottom and (annoyingly) in some cases on the ends or doors -- check out the door on the railbox car in middle top.

    Recent purchase, from ebay. Paid nearly MSRP for it, but this one is a lot harder to find than the Amtrak or VRE sets... I need to figure out what else I need to "complete" this set. I have this and the Metra bookcase set, so I think the other two MP36Hs and the three FP40s are the obvious option, but I'm thinking there's at least three or four individual Metra cars that Kato did as well.


    Still torn about going ahead and taking the plunge on the new Kato UP E units and associated set, or waiting a little bit. I know the UP 1943 SD70ACe is supposed to come out this month, I figure I might go for that one since it'll be hard to find in the future.
