    Moose picked this up from Home De'potty'o for some projects ... Can you guess for what Moose is going to use it?

    Being realistic I can see this was a little optimistic. So, I have gone and bought me a nice little selection of Black cat Canadian Pacific Decals to make my own 'What a minute', what's that I see second from top ? Decals for a Doodlebug !!! Watch this space

    Been wanting this bridge for years:

    zzzz Bietschtal.jpg Finally acquired it tonight.

    I know it is a specific European prototype but it is a nice looking piece of modeled engineering that I hope to find use for. Pretty decent price too.

    Finally got the latest Tier 4 from ScaleTrains.com.

    This run doesn't have any speaker holes in the bottom of the fuel tank, so I'm not sure where the sound comes from. Does anyone else know?

    Just received these yesterday in the mail.
    These are from the second run of Gevo’s from ScaleTrains.

    I like the difference in the BNSF Orange. The pair of Gevo’s behind #3764 are from the first run of these.
    Three different types of Antenna arrays as well between the BNSF and Demo.

    The sound on these I my option are just as good as the first run.

    For a while I've been wanting a little more diversity in my freight roster - like a few more road names and colors.
    A whole bunch of cars recently appeared on the German eBay site from some guy selling off his collection through a shop. There were/are so many cool road names I could easily have wrecked the bank account, but from the initial watch list I narrowed it down to these ones, all from Micro Trains. They were not particularly cheap, but they were available and from inside the EU. Doesn't happen every day.

    There is a junk store on River Road/Highway 167 near the 66th Street Bridge that has a stuffed moose up on roof. Maybe you could replace it and do some of that sign-spinnin' advertising stuff on the weekends. ...

    (OK, time to prepare for an impending stampede )
