    I was seriously in short supply of ribside hoppers , so a buddy of mine helped me out

    20190512_155306.jpg

    And while i was there , he helped me out with some more Rail Box cars and a couple of others

    20190512_155522.jpg

    The buddy mentioned is @Allen H.
    If you see something he is selling , i highly recommend him . The cars are in great condition as he told me they were . The cars were very well packed , and survived only what i can describe is kicked and dragged the whole way from Nebraska to British Columbia . The box was destroyed , but all the contents was in great shape

    Thanks Allen for the cars and the packaging

    Been looking for one of these for a long time. Finally found one, a Jan 1960 ORER, Official Railroad Equipment Register.

    Arrivals over the past week:


    One of the SD70Ms (2591) only runs when max power is applied, it goes from a standstill to a high rate of speed. I imagine it needs some sort of work. 2610 runs fine. 2591 also needs some new detail parts, as there were no handrails included and it had a blue Conrail one installed! Fortunately those are easy to find. I think I need brake hose details they have too, as the back of the engine doesn't have anything but has holes for them.

    The Graham Farish cars I bought as a lot of 2. They're the same set so they have the same roadnumbers, I may consider selling one as duplicate roadnumbers don't do anything for me.

    I have been picking up a few details for the layout. I am aiming for a 1983 time period for my layout. First we have a GHQ Chevy van, some Polly Scale paint and some micro-brushes. I was surprised to see the Polly Scale listed as a "new item" at Modeltrainstuff.com but only a hand full of colors. I really like Polly Scale paint for brush painting, so I grabbed it while I could. Maybe they found them hidden away in the warehouse.

    Next we have some CMW 1978 Chevy Impalas bought off E-bay.
    2019-05-22b.jpg
    Finally, some detail parts from Osborn Models. The parking bumpers and flag pole are for my fire station. The little bag is a free sign kit they threw in. Free is good! On the right is the MicroMark version of the Northwest Shortline "Dupli-cutter". I have wanted one for a while, and a $20 sale I couldn't pass up. I wonder if these are why NWSL went out of business? No mention is made of the original design.

    I waited and waited and looked and searched, and finally scored an N scale Rapido coach on sale. Now that I have it, I don't know WHY I spent the money... oh well... sure is nice!

    Always kinda sad when a LHS closes (owner retiring), but I managed a decent haul with everything 40% off.

    A lovely surprise for me on this rainy afternoon. I walked down the mountain to my postbox wondering if it was worth getting wet for ? A parcel from my sister upstate NY Back up the hill in double time saw me ripping it open and 'low and behold' A late birthday present I had told her I was into 'N' Canadian Pacific a while back and thought no more of it. Well she did me proud. What a cheering up present just as I'm going through my Mallet woes. 10/10 to sister. Four of the CP box cars are steam period as is the Diesel It's a Trainmaster that entered service in 1956 (the year I'm modeling) and is now preserved at the Canadian railway museum in St.Constant. Does anyone know if the SOO LINE boxcar is of steam period ? I guess they might have ventured north over the border ?

    Ah, the Mountain that became a Hill! Yes, endorphins can do that, I hear tell, especially when it's a surprise box of N scale goodies!

    Canadian Pacific Data will include the build date in the steam era, I anticipate Soo would do so too.

    Very late steam era at best, @tomcook.

    Thing is, SOO became the official reporting mark in 1961 when parent CP merged the Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie and the old Wisconsin Central. So I think SOO LINE as the reporting mark puts that car's scheme pre-1961 as the pre-merger Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste Marie.

    Of course, I might be wrong, and would then deserve a good whack upside the noggin with a sheaf of wheat.

    Definitely a splurge month.
    74 cars and 1 locomotive added to the fleet.
    Have no in-service track to run on at the moment, though.

    Thanks for your help. Just found a site on the net giving some dates on different lettering and it puts my boxcar as 1971. So, I guess it will get a repaint and CP decals along with the flatcars and the script lettered CP boxcar. That will keep me out of mischief for a bit
    Thanks, Tom
