    The postman delivered a package from all electronics yesterday with a bunch of terminal strips, spade connectors and terminal strip jumpers. Get ready for the layout wiring.

    Ever since I got my beige/blue E10 back in 2017 I've been looking for suitable Rheingold coaches for it. While they are out there - even as 5-car sets - something has held me back. Too much discussion on German forums about the correctness of those cars. I'm not a certified rivet counter, but I guess I'm borderline, so I sat back and waited for someone to eventually release a new set with kinematic couplers and whatnot. I haven't paid close attention to the market, so more or less by chance I discovered that Minitrix is releasing a revised set and according to the Trix web site, 'eventually' is now … March 2019. Fortunately there is room in the budget for it.

    Again searching the German forums I noticed someone saying that last time you could get the individual coaches cheaper than buying the set, so I checked around to see if that is still the case. While it should be possible to get the coaches individually, the price seems to be more or less the same, so I'm going for the set.

    I would like at least two more coaches in the Rheingold consist, however, so I found one at a reasonable price.




    To cushion the blow of the shipping charge I checked the seller's inventory and found a set of Minitrix ore cars.




    And - since my eyes are not getting any younger, I've also found myself a magnifier LED lamp. Very nice.

    Great haul! I bought the 2 red/cream Rheingold sets by Arnold, with a BR 103 to pull it. For those who don't know, the Rheingold was an all 1st class express train running from the Hoek van Holland to Basel, Switzerland (and back) in @SteamPower4ever version, and in my (1983) version, running from Amsterdam to Basel.
    Cheers!

    I have now pre-ordered the Rheingold '62 set by Minitrix

    Actually I also have the two '83 sets with the option of a BR 112 or a BR 103.
    I don't know what it is with me and named trains …

    Default A bunch of goodies

    Still trying to get my act together for my new N scale layout.
    I ordered another Kato turnout, a Kato double crossover, a Lychee headband magnifier, some magnetic couplers, and a Kato bridge.
    Whew!
    Long delivery times as I went for the FREE delivery from Japan option.
    I have more time (presumably), than money so that works for me.

    This one was unexpected.

    The ore cars I posted above are part of a larger set of 40 cars, which in 2009 was made as a one-time run by Minitrix as catalogue no. 15509. The set is the "Langer Heinrich" or Long Henry (me and named trains again), a 4000 tons ore train that ran in Germany in the 60s, 70s and 80s, pulled by a pair of BR42 or BR43s, which were essentially oil-fired BR41 and BR44 steamers respectively. Later a pair of BR151 electrics were pulling the train.

    The complete 15509 set is nowhere to be found and it's usually sold in bits, ranging between 1 car and up to maybe 10 if you're lucky. So I started out with the five cars above and figured I'd pick up more cars whenever I came across a bargain. That bargain came along a few days ago when by chance I found the complete set in a webshop in Sweden. It was marked down 33% and the exchange rate taking it even further down made each of the 40 cars - brand new - cheaper than any used one I can find available on the market. Each car is individually numbered and they are factory weathered.

    I simply could not pass the opportunity …



    So now I need an additional BR151 electric, which I am already looking for, and Fleischmann has announced a new construction of the BR44 steamers. Initially the only oil fired variant of the batch is a DR engine (East Germany), but it's a fairly safe bet that once they have the molds in production, they'll present a BR43 too, needing only a revised tender.

    I received this book in the post today but at first glance it seems a bit light weight !!! Sort of more general reading. I hope I'm to be proved wrong when I fully read it. Lucky it didn't cost the king's ransom

    Amazon delivery at 8:00 pm? Whaaa?

    Looky Ma, a box o'trees! (some assembly required)

    1 - Da Box 20190314_200708.jpg 2 - NaturalAire 6 Pack 20190314_210018.jpg

    Moose needed more of this green filtery stuff for making trees for the layout. Local hardware stores (home depotty'o, lowskis, etc.) no longer carry it, so had to order online. For the price of two from one merchant with the lowest price for a single, Moose bought six from another merchant with the lowest price for a six pack, sooo, Moose gonna make a whole mess a trees!

    I forget if I am supposed to edit my first post or add a new one. Oh well, this was not a planned purchase. I am making some wiring changes on my layout and needed some Kato wiring extensions. I could have mail ordered it but I had the day off and am not known for my patience. Don't have any shops that carry much N scale in my area so time for a road trip. The closest I could find that carried Kato should be English's Model Railroad Shop in Montoursville, PA. They also own Bowser which is next door. About an hour and a half drive to it. I only NEEDED two different extensions (one blue/white, the other brown/white). Should have been less that $10 but somehow I ended up spending $80 and only getting one of the items I needed. How does that happen? There are two Bowser cars that are out of production right now but I was hoping there might have been one hidden away that they overlooked. I wanted a N5c caboose in Conrail Blue scheme and a cylindrical hopper in Norfolk and Western scheme. Here is what I got:
    2019-03-15-01.jpg

    The caboose is a N5b probably more likely for the year I model than the N5c which had porthole windows. The CNW boxcar was something I was thinking I needed but wasn't sure of which type boxcar or paint scheme. It may turn out to be wrong for my year but I thought it was a good idea to grab it while I saw it. The Woodland Scenics grade crossing I hadn't seen before so I decided to get one to try. The "Dust Monkeys" are also something I wanted to try. I want to get an Aztec track cleaning car but as they are closed, I will have to try these for now. The brown/white cable I decided to get two so I would have an extra. (before someone says it, I know the connectors are the same on the blue/white but I am trying to keep stuff color-coded.) They didn't have the blue/white in stock. The WS dry transfers I use for re-numbering duplicate cars and was getting low. The Evergreen plastic strip was a size I was out of and the paint was for a conversion I am working on.
    That's it for now. Actually waiting on a mail order from the Carolinas, so I will have one more post.
    Cheers for now.

    I started benchwork today . And then i read about a shortage of Midwest cork . So i looked at MB Klein . And sure enough , its not even listed anymore . So i quickly ran out to the LHS and bought the last box they had . A little premature , but i am going to need it sooner than later . So if anyone is going to need some in the near future , i suggest looking for it now
