    Default What are you buying this month? - September 2019

    Seeing that no one's started the ball rolling for this month, I'll kick it off with something ordered last month and delivered today - my 2 CD set of Narrow Gauge & Shortline Gazettes.
    25,220 pages, 1,828 plans and scale drawings, it includes a searchable index (I tried that, it is so convienient) and instructions for downloading onto your computer. Even has tips for printing scale plans and ensuring they are correct for your scale (like N).
    From the front cover of the first issue, September 1975 to the back of the last issue, November 2014, every ad, cover illustration and article is there, also the predecessor mags, Finelines and Slim Gauge News (does it seem obvious that I'm rapped with this?).







    3 pages, for review purposes only. That's how it's displayed on your computer. Zoomable, each page prints as a PDF.
    Cheers,

    Russ

    CEO of Devil's Gate Mining Co.

    Expect nothing except the opposite of what you expect, and then expect it to be something other than that ! Then that's about what it will be

    @tomcook In US dollars it was $139 + $20 shipping, $159 USD = $244.70 AUD

    My pre-order came in from @fifer.

    I have several MTL road numbers already on the layout, so these will make a nice addition to my unit trains, which are mostly Atlas 90t hoppers. But the box is so nice that it makes me think I'm supposed to collect these instead of running them.

    I treated myself to this nice poster. I think it goes rather well with my N Scale CP Jubilee.

    I received this postcard with it. I know it's just advertising but it charmed me but unfortunately they don't sell anything else I want !

    I got some more tortoise switch machines, some remote throws and a few new wheelsets for my track test cars which always feel like they are riding on the ties.

    Here is the anti stampede portion

    Been a busy month so far.

    Four boxcars, two Athearn (C&O) and two Atlas Trainman (ACL). I'm not trying to neglect the U.S. stuff even though most of what I've bought lately has been British!

    3 car set of GWR wagons

    BR 20T Brake Van

    Class J39

    The new Class 50 from Dapol


    Also bought some scenery materials, but that's not quite as exciting.

    Just received confirmation that my order of C&O style Whistle Posts from Shapeways has shipped. This will be the first print of them, so we'll see how they come out.
    One side of the sprue has the "W" raised while the other has the "W" set into the Whistle Post head like the prototype.

    I'm not allowed to run the train, the whistle I can't blow. I'm not allowed to say how fast the Railroad Train can go.
    I'm not allowed to shoot off steam, nor even clang the bell. But let the damned Train jump the track, and see who catches hell!

    In the mail today...an A-B-A set of Monon F3 units by Intermountain. These will go well with the small collection of Monon diesels I already have.

    Ten sets of KATO Smoothside Dome Window Inserts. Having a difficult time of removing the glazing from the dome sections of the roof. Decided to have insurance, so I ordered the parts. They had a deal, $1 per set, instead of $4, so I ordered ten sets. Figured postage was $7 on one or ten, so why not? If I do succeed in removing dome inserts without breakage, I'll have extra to experiment with tinting. I have six domes that I will repaint to Alaska Railroad, and may just get four more. I have ten sets (for twenty cars) of ARR Circus brand modern decals, and the paint. Now if the Florida humidity will drop so I can actually paint some of these cars outside.

    UPS delivered a bunch of things I had on order yesterday. Just wish BLI packaged the cars better. Need to fix one in each package.

    The C&O Syle Whist Posts came in the mail today from Shapeways. These things are tiny! The measurements are off of the one in my yard, so they should be to scale.

    70371812_530623801077448_2912781759982600192_n.jpg

    I couldn't wait to get them painted tonight, so I took a sharpie over top of the raised "W" set to see how difficult it was going to be for the "W" to show up. Turns out they printed just fine!

    70004968_923617361306377_3321184303169142784_n.jpg

    Pretty happy with how they came out, so I'll be making them available on my shapeways store.

    I'll paint them up tomorrow and place a couple on my modules and take some pics.

    snagged up a few of the latest offerings from Atlas.

    A few more F-100s and the Russell snow plow for Conrail. It will be item of interest on a stub end track in a yard someday.


    And I am still worried the pre-ordered Atlas GP38s,GP20s, and U23s are all going to ship at the same time! At least its safe to say the IM pre orders will not arrive till 2040 or later.

    More items for the layout I've been working on. Another industry, some telegraph poles, and stone walls to line the roads, along with some new rolling stock.

    Da Mooses stopped by local hobby store, Online Trains on South Tacoma Way in, errr, ummm, south Tacoma.

    Moose wanted to get some water slide decals with the teenie tiny small print for box cars and cabeese...

    On way into store, Mr & Mr Moose saw these, thought might be good to have for the wee shrubs, bushes, etc. around layout:

    2_Foilage_Foam_20190919_120128.jpg

    Then Moose started going through the box-o-decals and found these:

    1_Decals_20190919_115240.jpg

    Then Mrs Moose shows up with some things she wanted to get:

    3_Metal_Kits_Jens_20190919_120241.jpg

    Ummm, Mrs Moose buy more things than Mr Moose?!
