    Well, posthuman finally delivered something Moose ordered from The Model Shoppe in the U.K. like a whole year ago! Okay, last month, but still, Moose waited and waited since last year, technically...

    'Cause Ford rules, and all others drool, Moose presents four, count'em, four Peco Pallet Vans - all FORD branding. Yeah! Hoof-pump!

    And, the piece of the resistance, errr, piece de resistance, Moose gives what must be the kewlest tank engine ever, an LMS Fairburn 2-6-4T!

    With the money I made selling a bunch of O stuff on ebay along with money I made from a second part-time work at home sort of job last year, I decided to treat myself pretty well at the Louisville train show this past weekend:
    The diesels that may be hard to see are Amtrak units and Milwaukee Road units that go with the passenger sets I picked up. Some of these sets were ones I've seen online for awhile that I wanted, so when I saw them today I figured I might as well. I also figure that some of these items are getting harder to find, even online, so I should get them while I can. This should give me plenty to play around with for awhile. My Santa Fe Super Chief set also arrived the other day as well(finally).

    Hey everyone, haven't been on for awhile due to illness and one crapped out PC. Due to the PC issues, and so I can come here (so sort of hobby related) I have had to buy a new system, well the components for a build anyway:

    Cougar MX330 Mid-Tower:



    ASUS ROG Maximus X Code LGA 1151 Z370 ATX Motherboard:



    Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6 GHz 8 Core LGA 1151 CPU:


    Dark Rock Pro 4 CPU Air Cooler:


    Crucial 1 TB MX500 2.5" Internal SSD:

    4 X Silent Wings 3 120, PWM High-Speed Fans:


    EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC Ultra Gaming GPU:


    Ballistic 32GB Sport LT Series DDR4 2666 X 2 kits:


    EVGA Super Nova 1000 G3 1000W 80 Plus Gold PSU:


    I think this set up will get me back up and running again and not needing my wife's laptop - which is a pain. The downside to this is the need to have go to windows damn 10, something I really didn't want to do but getting stuff that is Windows 7 Compatible is a pain in the rectum

    Should have it all by this Wednesday so should be more regular in here by the end of next week and will be able to update a couple of my threads.
    Cheers Tony

    Hey Moose, nah - just getting ready to take over the WORLD!!!!

    Seriously, I built my current (very questionable system) around 5 years or so ago so it was due for an upgrade. It decided it was time I guess so I figured I'd build something that will accommodate everything I do on a computer, mainly graphic intensive stuff, so needed a bit more power, reliability and capability.
    Cheers Tony

    RIP... Your free time!
    With a rig like that, what free time you get is gonna get sucked into it's temporal distortion field.
    You'll sit down to do something, be tempted by some game or project (which will end in a game), then you blink, and realize it's 3:47 am.

    Wow Wombat, that's quite a rig. Don't be worried about Windows 10. I too was a BIG fan of windows 7 and wondered how 10 would be. It really is a good OS and with the set up you have, should run really well. I'm still on an old i5 Sandy Bridge on an ASUS Z77 Sabertooth L1155 socket. It's just a matter of time before it will need replacing. Only suggestion I would give you is use the SSD drive for your operating system and an HHD for programs. The only software I will install on my SSD are games or programs I want to have a very fast input/output speed. It will help keep the SSD clear of clutter and prolong it's life.

    I would agree with windows 10, it is on the good cycle for Microsoft.

    Thanks guys and yeah, it isn't what you would call an "entry system" that's for sure.

    Olie, I agree with you about keeping your SSD's for the basics. That is something that I have done for quite a few years with 2 SSD's installed, one for OS and the other for programming and an external 500 GB hard drive for everything else.

    Speed is what I am after as well; as such, I have changed out the Crucial 1 TB SSD for this one:



    Read speeds up to 3400 MB/s and write speeds up to 2500 MB/s. They pretty much blow conventional SSD speeds out of the water!

    As for windows 10, well - my wife has it and I'm still not convinced by it, it's mandatory updates and how user "unfriendly" it seems to be compared to 7.
    Cheers Tony

    Nope, regardless of the system, my trains will ALWAYS be manually operated
    Iím using the best of both worlds because I like to manually operate as well so I plan to use my Ecos in conjunction with TrainController to run the two mainlines and use manual inside that for operations. Iíll have at least 6 areas in different parts of the layout to do that. In that way I can be operating/switching etc. and not have to worry about an accident while venturing onto the main dring operations because those trains will stop when the block is occupied.
    It will also help when the granddaughter comes over to run trains.

    Nice to see youíre up and about again Tony.

    Thanks guys and yeah - still feeling a little under the weather and "sluggish" but on the improve ... I hate NY weather - well, winter anyway Seriously thinking about moving back to Oz for the winter

    My main issue with things like JMRI is I know nothing about it and it needs (I think) additional electrical stuff to run. I work on the theory of it's best to stick with what you know and can use

    That being said, it (evidently) does have benefits.
