    Default What are you buying this month? - August 2019

    I got some more freight cars from that tempting eBay seller in Berlin.
    More road names that are not yet in the roster.

    I know that with all those road names on the freight cars I've bought lately, some of the liveries and typefaces may not be correct for each other, but I've sort of decided to disregard that fact, as I can't be bothered to research every single model for correctness. They look great together and that's close enough for me.
    I do have my doubts about that Rio Grande reefer, though. I've never seen pictures of older real world Rio Grande freight cars in that livery, but again - it looks great.

    Technically I ordered these in July, but they are in the mail as I write this. On the other hand, the last lot I bought was ordered in July but posted in the June thread, so I guess maybe that somehow settles the score.

    Anyway, here's the pics:

    Trying to have some self control... Tons of pre-orders looming out there, I hope they do not all come in the same container!!!


    Loading up on weathering supplies and material for the kit-bashed mill....

    Well, perhaps it was last month. But I bought a brewery by Modellbahn Union, #MU-N-i00028. It has large windows and copper brew kettles, loading platform for rail.



    I won't be building it for a while. It is scheduled to go on the Bavarian section of the new layout.

    Blair Line C&O Depot #1
    Walthers Cinder Conveyor
    Track Bumpers and two 40' outside braced Microtrains 40' box cars.

    Thinking about a BLI Heavy Mike in a couple of weeks. I like the way the Model Power Mikes run though, have three of them and they're good runners, finally got them unboxed and on the test track.

    Not trying to complain here guys. Just getting frustrated. And yea, I have been thinking about getting rid of the train stuff. I just don't seem to be getting anything done.

    Start small, enjoy, but plan for possible expansion. No need to do a complex layout to start or ever for that matter.

    I normally don't post to these threads, but I did pick up one of the new Walthers Modern Concrete building kits!

    I've been looking for something for my Flapper's Chicken processing plant at Fordyce. I've been contemplating bashing a Superior Paper plant?
    Now I shouldn't have to.


    What I really liked about it is the back side, which will be my seen side once it's in place.
    Those two rail doors are just what I was needing, I have two spots for mechanical reefers.

    And after a little more digging, it looks like Walthers has used this kit for an HO COLD storage building as well, they just modified it and added two big refrigerator units to it, which is what this building will be when I'm done.
    So I should be able to cobble something together for the refrigeration units?



    Got to keep things cold whether your shipping frozen Chicken or frozen Moose, right?

    I acquired a proper fast-switching power supply for my Digitrax system. For years I'd been using the step-down transformer that came with my original Empire Builder back in 2000.

    Once I get the new PS615 wired in and my DT400 back from repair, I'm planning on getting a PR4, then swapping out the Prodigy for the Digitrax, with my infrared receivers/throttles.

    First of several N scale orders from the UK arrived. Hatton's is always pretty quick about getting things here.

    Same... thinking about my old 2x4 layout, might make it into a British layout since these locomotives can handle tighter curves (or at least I think they can). Need to learn how to oil locomotives too...I'm too spoiled by Kato where you can run them out of the box. Dapol suggests oiling engines before running them.
