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

    Post human deliver these to Moose house this afternoon - very sneaky, didn't ring the door bell or 'nothing!

    Items to build stairs from town to ground, errr, to passenger station level - very short so may have to order more of the$e thing$, street signs and another building that may well become the headquarters for the MT&PRR, an old flatbed that looks a lot like John Walton Sr's work truck, some fencing to go between the mainline and the passenger siding near town, and some subway entrance kits - those probably won't go on layout, wasn't sure about a certain idea'r Moose had, and now likely won't work ... Plus there's no subway in town...

    One small advice for the hair pin fence. Remove it from package and put it in a book with a weight on top until you will use. Pieces are very fine ant tent to keep a bad curved, twisted shape. When you use, will be straight and glue will keep nice the shape. Here i use it and i like it a lot.

    It runs pretty well. Still need to run it more by itself to break it in. Best part was that I only paid $50 for it.

    The diesels I bought because they're Kato... I've seen plenty of UP SD70Ms in person, along with the INRD SD90MAC. I almost lost the 90MAC on ebay at the last minute, the person couldn't put in a higher bid fast enough. I wanted a CEFX 90MAC to go with the one I have but lost it. Used to see a trio of them on coal trains on PAL here in Kentucky.

    Found a bunch of Plastruct brick panels. None in N scale, but I'm sure they can still be used for stuff.
    This is the smallest brick, and it comes out to being about 22 inches (56 cm) long, per brick, in N scale.
    I would imagine this could possibly be painted in shades of grey to model cinder blocks.

    GAunS3t-2.jpg
    This size is much larger. It's intended for G scale, but I imagine being painted a sand color, these could model large limestone blocks.
    In N scale, these measure 44x18 inches (112x45 cm)

    NInqeMN.jpg
    These bricks are made of some form of foam, and are absolute beasts. I know not intended for N scale, but just because, I still calculated the scale size...
    These have 52x33 inch (132x84 cm) spacing, with 45x24 inch (114x61 cm) bricks. Unfortunately, that means the mortar is 7-9 inches (18-23 cm) thick in N scale.

    bJuhrgL.jpg
    These tiles are 80 inches, or 6 foot, 8 inches (~2 meters) square. I suppose I could use these for wide sidewalks.
    Not really complaining or being picky, as I got ALL the brick and tile for a dollar at a thrift shop.

    3kVWfGt.jpg
    Final item was this stamp set. It's barely even relatable to model trains, but who knows. Maybe I'll make gas price boards using it.
    The letters would end up being 24x15 inches (60x38 cm) in N scale. Got this at the same shop as the brick panels, for nearly as cheap.

    I haven't bought or made much in the past few months. Been keeping busy with work for my job at the machine shop. Lots of soldering circuit boards. That's good.
    I have to admit that it's a lot less stressful, now that I'm no longer at that testing lab. More free time, less stress.
    I've just been doing other things, but it's good to be posting here again!

    Moose too!

    No, wait, these are decidedly NOT locomotives, and certainly not, well, you know, but one of them is for a, well, you know...

    I'll admit I'd love to snag a nice CNW like that one someday! I think my only GE loco is a Dash 8-40C, also in CNW colors.

    51SptnwgjiL._SX382_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

    Hoping it will help out with the layout of my industries in the interior of my layout . If not , im sure it will answer some questions i never knew i had

    I agree with Moose2013. This book was a great help in learning about prototype operations and my layout is based on one of his sample plans. Enjoy it.

    Looking for something for my BR 117 E-Lok to pull. Ordered this:


    And while I was shopping, stumbled across this for pre-order:


    This is the 1962 version of the all first class Rheingold. I already have the red/cream 1983 version. The Rheingold was discontinued in 1987, except as an excursion train. And here is the motive power for this Rheingold, factory DCC with sound:

    Looking forward to that one too. Delivery has been bumped from March, but it still says April on the Trix web site ...
