    Pick these up at Tukers Trains booth. LNWI, a decoder for the GP-38, a short cable, and a nice little excavator

    I plan on going back to the show tomorrow so who knows. I also have an order coming in from Modeltrainstuff

    Picked up a few things local train show in Vancouver thiis weekend.

    Scale Trains GATX Greenbier Covered Hopper
    Couple JTC 53' Canadian Tire Containers

    Small Max Jacquiard print for the wall. Had one given to me as a gift years ago, decided it's been looking lonely. Yes, it's a painting of steam engines, still prefer modern diesels, but it's such a pretty painting.

    My newest acquisitions thanks to NDave and Zosimas:









    All will be repainted in the "New" Royal Pacific scheme

    Thanks again guys.

    Only thing I see that needs to be done is to change out the couplers for longer ones (shanks) OR change out the Trucks for ones with longer shanks.
    Cheers Tony

    Well ... no reason I can't repaint it in Royal Pacific colors and name it the "B.B. King" Might even name one "The Moose", if your a good moosie

    Hmm, actually, never considered "naming the cars", might not be a bad idea. Any suggestions for names?

    @wombat457

    Moose try to be a good moose ... Hard to do when have to enforce da rules around here...

    As for name suggestions, really depends on your railroad, where's it located, what prominent people / places / events might be interesting to immortalize on the coaches, well, that's a moose opinion anyway...

    A few little bits arrived in the post today

    A White 6x4 tractor/trailer that might get converted into a logging outfit ! Then again, it is rather nice as is
    IMG_0938 (2).jpg

    Name plates for my King George V rebuild and a pair of Royal Scot plates for if I ever get around to building #6100 in her original large boiler condition. You can buy her off the shelf in her rebuilt state but it's not accurate for her tour of the US and Canada. Her original un tapered boiler looks more powerful and impressive and is tempting me to recreate her in model form. I have a nice picture of her climbing unassisted up through the CP's spiral tunnels
    IMG_0933 (2).jpg

    Finally, a pair of flashing red LEDs to fit under my UFO

    Thanks, Tom

    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

    Surprised my bid lasted due to value in this lot on Nn3 items.

    Probably will sell some duplicates to cover costs.
    But then really need to put these to good use.
