    At the show we attended last weekend I picked up the following:

    Classic Mini Metal car lot.

    Industrial buildings and pieces of buildings for my yard scene. They will all need some work but I see some potential in them. And the price was right.

    A pair of autoracks (to be painted for B&O), some smooth side passenger project cars, and a B&O Wagontop caboose kit.

    I have several of those older kits for B&O Wagontop equipment. One day, I will work up enough courage to build them.

    I'm not allowed to run the train, the whistle I can't blow. I'm not allowed to say how fast the Railroad Train can go.
    I'm not allowed to shoot off steam, nor even clang the bell. But let the damned Train jump the track, and see who catches hell!

    Well the hattons order arrived, in it I got these 3 passenger cars for myself.

    And my wife got me this loco to pull those cars for my birthday. I gave her the loco as soon as I had taken this picture for her to wrap and give to me on my actual birthday which is coming up soon.

    I bought a NWSL Chopper II and a spare cutting mat, because that seems to be the thing to do now.

    I ordered a KATO N gauge UP excursion train 7-Car Set from an eBay seller in Japan. This is the first time I have purchased directly from overseas so I hope it goes OK. I couldn't find this set locally at a price I thought was fair.

    The European night trains "City Night Line" (CNL) stopped service in December, 2017. In 2014 Kathy and I had the pleasure of taking the overnighter with a 2nd class cabin from München to Hamburg. We arrived in the morning, stuck our bags in a locker at the Hauptbahnhof, and went directly to the Miniatur Wunderland. Sadly, the CNL doesn't run anymore.

    The Austrian Bundesbahn (ÖBB, Österreich Bundesbahn) started up an new line of overnight sleepers, the Night Jet, the name being a takeoff on their successful high speed Rail Jet (not as fast as Germany's ICE series or France's TGV, but still high speed). We have not yet had the opportunity to try the Night Jet, but there is a very important thing I have learned in model railroading: When something you like is offered, snatch it up! It won't be in production long! So I have ordered the following from the EuroLok Shop:


    This is a six car set from LS Models. Also I ordered this Kato/Hobbytrain Lemke version of the appropriate E-Lok, DCC with sound:

    This will be my first experience with sound in a Kato product
    This will be my first experience with sound in a Kato product, so I hope the quality is as good as the rest of their line.

    I haven't had a chance / reason to travel on the NightJet yet either, but ÖBB basically took over the rolling stock from the CNL trains from DB and also run mostly the same lines (as the last CNL schedule - they haven't reintroduced service to Copenhagen or Paris - yet?) and on similar schedules. Plus of course the lines from/to Vienna which never were on the CNL network.

    Definitely a great way to travel.

    @el Gato Gordo lovely set.

    @Heiko not yet, but we are seeing travel agencies starting to promote rail travel, and travellers - especially families - are beginning to appreciate rail travel over flying, taking in the journey as part of the experience and loving that the kids have room to roam and think it's very cool to sleep in a train. So hopefully the CityNightLine or some other service to and from Denmark will come back in a not too distant future. The business seems to be returning anyway.

    Nice models. I have had good experience with both the Kato FEF and Kato E units released for the City of Los Angeles that were both factory (Kobo) sound equipped. They run just as well as Kato are known for, and seem much less sensitive to dirty track and stall less than several BLI locos I have. In fact, the FEF is one of my best running locos of all types. I think you’ll be pleased.

    I'm swapping over to MT 905 couplers. Finally pulled the trigger and placed the order on Thursday.

    I have used McHenrys (too big) and MT 1015s (too big), MT True-scale (too difficult to couple reliably and they are not compatible with Bluford Shop coupler boxes), and everything else is " ugh" to "meh". ...

    So, I will give the 905s a try. Axle springs and axle wipers should mitigate the slinky action, I hope.

    If that doesn't work, it's off to HO traction land for me. ...

    Oh NO YOU DON'T Mister! You either stay in the world of the tiny, fit-in-your-mouth trains or it's a proper moose stampede across yer noggin'!

    Oh, sure, easy for you to get Anti Moose Stampede Insurance in Ohio. Rates must be dirt cheap. Nearest moose is what, 500 miles away in the U.P.? I mean, if you don't post a photo, you have time once a warning is issued to watch a couple extra-innings Reds game, brew some beer, and then think about panicking.

    We have literally seconds out here. The moose are among us. Easier to get earthquake insurance in San Francisco than Anti Moose Stampede Insurance here.

    Photos must be instantaneous and clear. No excuses. No weak sister stuff. We'll get more of a warning if Mt. Rainier erupts than we'll get for a @Moose2013 Stampede.

    Legend has it that Stampede Pass (nee Garfield Pass), the Northern Pacific's crossing of the Cascade Mountains, was so named account the workers who left in droves due to the dangerous conditions.

    I'll tell you why it was named Stampede Pass: because the builders took hardly any photos! Angry Moose Pass would have been a fitting moniker!
