    Default What Are You Buying This Month (February 2019)?

    Moose finally receive one item expected from far away Europe ... And it's Moose's latest obsession, a Graham-Farish Coronation Class 4-6-2. Sooo pretty!

    Yeah, she's saaaweeeeeet! Yea, apparently there is/was duchesses of various places in the U.K. for which the Coronation Class locomotives were named. Cities as well. Moose has a clever plan [if Moose can pull off the minor skills required] that will see this one change, ever so slightly but significantly ... Bwaaaaaa (insert happy goo-goo eyed nutzy moose laugh here!)

    Oh, no pully this locomotive -- not yet decoderized. Moose has another clever plan in that respect, if the Royal & US Postal services get'ter in gear and deliver things ... The French postal service needs to get things going too, Moose thinks, but that's another story...

    Today, a long awaited package arrived from Scenic Express.
    As soon as I get some dreaded paperwork finished for tax season, I plan to move forward with some basic ground cover.

    IMG_1148.jpg

    All of this is nothing more than ground foam.
    Turf blend, Earth blend, Soil and some Desert Dust for basic ground cover.
    Three colors of green for the super trees and varied ground cover; Medium green, Burnt Grass and Moss.
    One of Autumn gold and Aspen yellow for dried/dead weeds.
    One container of Gray Blend ballast to mix with the other containers of ballast.

    Hopefully this should hold me out for awhile?
    If it's not enough, I did notice that you can order almost any of the scenery foam in 5 gal buckets....

    Default Frog Juicers to the rescue

    I purchased a Mono Frog Juicer from Tam Valley Depot for a Peco Electrofrog turnout that was giving me problems, especially with BLI sound locos. Hooked it up in less than a minute and what a difference it made. Immediately ordered another one for another finicky Electrofrog. I power all my frogs using the built-in switch on the Tortoise switch machine, but (as has been discussed at length in this forum), sometimes those contacts don't work so well. I have nine turnouts and 7 of them work perfectly using the Tortoise, while these 2 were causing stalls. The Frog Juicer took care of the problem immediately.

    Thanks, but Lok and people in plastic are totally obscured. These (collectively) do not qualify as photos. Must call a moose stampede on yourself.

    I haven't been very active lately as 1:1 life has been calling and cash has been short.
    Today my offer for 3 PFE reefers was accepted, however.
    Very reasonable price and the seller even offered to lower the shipping cost from Germany. Very nice.

    Moose finally receive one of two packages of books that Moose has been expecting for over a month. Unfortunately, they kinda sorta messed up the order -- two copies of one book and missing another book...

    Anyway, fun reading ahead!

    I've been doing a lot with the interior of a couple of builds recently and thought I needed some lights so one could actually see my work. I found a $25 visa gift card in my backpack. No idea how long that was sitting there.

    Went to a Train Show in Allentown, PA today and this is my haul. O Gauge was king at this show followed by H-O scale but there were a decent amount of N scale. One trend I didn't like was several dealers were selling kit models that had been pre-assembled, not the manufacturers Ready-Built models. It seems some dealers are taking kits slapping them together and selling that way. Hardly any kits for sale.
    I took a list but I wandered off it. Found two out of five items on list. Here is what I got starting bottom right. The show gave away this great reusable bag just for signing up for their e-mail list. Great idea.Next are some sanding sticks (impulse buy), a Proses track cleaning felt I decided to try since I didn't find any track cleaning cars. The "Universal Throttle Pocket 2" really is universal, my MRC Tech 4 DC handheld throttle fits great. Next row is a Magnuson Models Heavy Duty Coal Truck, a heavy duty dump truck was on my list. This was a lucky find as it was mixed in with some Magnuson H-O models. An Atlas (former BLMA) modern rubber grade crossing. These were tough to find for a while. Next some electrical connectors. I really only needed the spade lug ones but this was the only one available. Not actually on my list but should have been. A stack of business cards from people I did business with. One guy (Ray Kaminski of Crusader Rail Service) didn't have what I needed but gave me a name of someone who should have it. Latest copy of N Scale Railroading magazine. A Cab Bus Fascia Panel and Bus cable from NCE. No, I didn't take the plunge to DCC. These will allow me to plug my MRC Tech 4 throttle in another location and it's "Plug and Play"! Some Kato track power cords. A couple of cars, Atlas BN boxcar and a M/T MKT gondola. Finally, a metal Conrail sign. I would have preferred white lettering on a blue background but this was the only one I saw. That is it. Of the three things on my list that I didn't find, one, a structure kit I found on e-bay for a decent buy-it-now price after checking several dealers. The second was a Bowser car that I don't need right away, so I will wait. The last was a track cleaning car. I should just bite the bullet and get a Centerline car.
    Hope you all have a nice weekend.
    Cheers!

    Da Mooses were at the annual MRR show & swap meet in Monroe, WA this morning. Quite fun! Moose's favourite show of the year...

    Mrs Moose immediately saw this Woodland Scenics "Blended Turf" which she recognized as a recommended material for flocking conifer trees:
    4 - WS Blended Turf T1349 20190223_172658.jpg

    And Mr Moose didn't want to leave without buying something, and Moose always say to moose-self: "Moose, if Moose can't find anything at an MRR swap meet that's on Moose's MRR wish list, then Moose should at least pick up a layout-appropriate caboose, 'cause, Moose'know, Moose always can use another caboose..." Sooo, Moose bought this caboose:
