    Not train related, except that it blew the rest of my train budget for 2019 (except for pre-orders, of course). Yesterday I bought this:

    She is a 5 year old Peruvian Paso mare. She is a gaited breed, which means she doesn't trot, resulting in a ride with no bounce, regardless of speed. Spent more on her than I have on trains in the past 3 or 4 years.

    Life is short, enjoy it while you can!

    Her name is "Magenta." I will be trail riding with my wife (and her Paso Fino, Alas del Viento) in the Colorado mountain country. It is a tough life, but somebody has to live it!

    Ah, a horse, which as I learned from firsthand experience as the father of a teen-aged horse lover/owner, is a beautiful four-legged beast that converts $50 and $100 bills into manure with surprising rapidity. ...

    You're referring to Homer's third and lesser known poetic work "Oddity," correct? Even less known is his "Iliac," about a bunch of Hellenistic hipsters.

    Stuff has been trickling into the inventory for the past couple of weeks - mostly by mail, by also at an exhibition where I picked up some paints, masking tape and a cheap set of tools. The cutter is probably crap, but still better than the one I have. Why do I always get cheap when buying cutters?




    A new (old) truck for the one I messed up on the red BR103
    The seller added a couple of cars for free ... a VW 411 and an Audi 100.






    Etches for europallets and rail anchors for module ends.




    A Breuer tractor. Unpowered, put very purdy.
    There's a closed version (also unpowered) too that I have ordered along with a track spacing gauge for the rail anchors. Both types of Breuer tractors have been used here in Denmark, and some are still around. I have been driving a license built version of the closed one at the railway museum when I was a voluteer.




    An ultrasound cleaning bath. Very effective for cleaning the drives of incoming used locomotives.




    A couple of books:
    "Von der GHE zur HSB" - the history of the Harz narrow gauge railways in two volumes.
    "Zug in die Wolken" - translates into something like "train in the clouds". Pictures of the Harz railways taken during several years.

    The Harz railways are a day's drive from home, but I've never been there.
    They have multiple steam trains operating daily all year.
    Guess where I'm going on my summer holiday ...

    @SimRacin14, oh, Monon! I really like the Monon, another of those great vest-pocket Class 1s, like the SP&S and the Clinchfield.

    That's quite a haul SimRacin! That cutter looks like someone was trying to copy a Xuron.

    The Harzberge are some beautiful country, @SteamPower4ever! I had an Audi 100LS back in 1976-77. Great car to drive, but many mechanical problems and the dealer seemed to have a $500 rubber stamp every time I brought it in.
