    I ordered an extra TrainWorx semi trailer (you can’t have too many), some Showcase Miniatures Kits (the main one being the Mail Truck)

    And a Metal Earth Crawler Crane, to see if I can make it something useable on the layout.

    I may have gone slightly overboard here ...

    First of all my pre-order for two German BR44 steamers was ready at the shop. These models are a brand new construction from Fleischmann, and true to form, Fleischmann has kept the motor and drive in the tender. While this solution allows the designer greater freedom with details around the boiler, it may affect the pulling ability of the models ... but maybe not. Back in the H0 days I had a Fleischmann BR50 with the first three of four axles powered, and it had loads of trouble on anything but perfectly level and even track. I also had a BR55 with all three axles of the tender powered, and it would pull pretty much anything up a 4% grade.
    This new BR44 design has only TWO powered axles, and although they both have traction tires and one of the axles is balanced, I'm looking forward to seeing what they can do. After all, these two engines will be pulling 200 axles of the Langer Heinrich ore train. Wheel slip was common on the prototype ...

    I do know that for that particular train the engines should really be BR43 - the oil fired and more powerful version - but Fleischmann didn't offer those in the first run. I'm pretty sure they'll show up eventually, but I'm hedging my bet here.




    Then a British seller had two Athearn FP45s up for sale. The seller deals mostly in UK models, so they didn't really know much about them and had priced them accordingly. I simply couldn't resist.






    The same seller had a Kato ABA consist of Alcos in Southern Pacific livery. The right ones with lit numberboards.
    With a good price and combined shipping with the FP45s I couldn't resist those either.








    Whew ... I think I'm done shopping for a while

    I will be very curious about how well those BR 44's pull. I have avoided the larger Fleischmann Dampfloks because of the tender drive. Is the tender well weighted?

    Found this book in near perfect condition at an antique store this weekend. For 5 bucks, it just had to come home with me.

    Don't know yet, as all pics are lifted off the seller's web site or eBay. You'd certainly expect weights in the tender, but I'm looking forward to testing. As I noted, I've had both good and bad experience with the tender drives.

    It's okay Moose. Most PA's (most ALCo's, actually) smoke enough to make them honorary steam locomotives!

    Wombat, I think that a "Steisel" would still be just . . . . wrong. Steam, Steam and I guess a few diseasels.....

    On a side note, I knew we had met before. Way back in 1983 when I first hit Perth as a port of call........

    Well, the alternative would be DieSteam but that wouldn't make Moose happy!

    I was right - the Fleischmann 2020 news prospect shows the oil fired BR43 (or more correctly the BR 043) arriving in Q3.

    Default New to N scale, new to sNs. New purchases!

    My wonderful wife got Me a Bachmann Yard Boss Starter set for Christmas and I just ran with it. Not enough room in our new lake side retirement home for the old HO equipment so here goes! Picked up a digitrax sound decoder, some woodlands scenic roadbed, 30 pcs flex track and 2 sets Atlas add on track packs, 7 assorted turnouts, foam board and lumber to build modules. Probably got the cart way ahead of the horses as I haven't chosen era, locale or anything. Getting ready to start some track planning. Will hold off on any more purchases until next month when the train show in Houston on Feb 15. Having made a lot of unnecessary purchases in HO, I'm going to be a lot more choosy as to any further purchases. First of many posts to come. I would post pics but there's not anything to show yet.
    New home, new scale! Ain't retirement great?
