    Default What are you buying this Month (April 2020)

    Thought I'd kick things off ... in the early hours of this morning I ordered a few cans of Tamiya Spray Lacquer:

    1 X Dark Green
    1 X Brilliant Blue
    1 X Haze Grey

    I also received my Mid West order of the pre wired SMD's (more on them later) 2 AMB kits and a bunch of ground covers.

    Mostly scenic items for me, all for my O scale layout.

    3 packs of 6 laser cut windows


    2 sets of furniture - getting me 4 of everything shown here:


    Bushes in 7 different flavours:














    I'm also bidding on an intermountain tank car, which would be nice to get.

    Finally, though this is a couple of years outside of the 1965 setting of my layout, I just couldn't resist:

    So, I received my Pre Wired 0403 SMD's and they are so so small - smaller than what I envisaged and wont work for what I wanted them for, building lighting. As such, I have just ordered the following:

    3 X 5 Pack 0805 SMD Warm White Pre-Wired with Resistors and Lead Wires:

    I haven't bought much as of late with all the CV stuff going around...but did pick this up on ebay. The seller was in Kentucky, so it didn't have to travel too far. New one is on the left.

    I going to start loading up on boxcars, plus I'm ordering some bridges for a new module. Plus I made a Shapeways order to get more coupler boxes for my True-Scale couplers. Fun fun.

    Ordered a couple of pre-wired SMD LEDs from Aliexpress - red and yellow 0402 for lighting heavy trucks / semi trailers and red/green bicolor 0605 for signalling experiments. At $0.30 each I'm going to stop soldering magnet wire myself...

    Also expecting a package with Atlas/BLMA parts including the pair of #10 turnouts I'm missing to lay track on my large ethanol dealer module. A modeling friend did a "collective order" for a bunch of us here in Germany and the stuff has arrived

    And I'm also expecting my MTL 60" high cubes to show up sooner or later. Watching @fifer and his webshop, because I pre-ordered there - 4x3 for myself and 2x3 for friends, IIRC. Hope they (my friends) remember

    So a sizeable hit to my credit card, helping the economy

    I'm not buying anything train-related (unless you consider toilet paper train-related...), but I am breaking out trains I haven't touched in a while, and it feels just like Christmas!

    I'd forgotten that this little St. Mary's Railroad Atlas MP15-DC runs like a champ!

    @PW&NJ

    Hey, if you have any spare date roll, I'll buy some from you - just kidding

    While I don't know you, it's good to see an "old member" coming back to the hobby and rekindling friendships and an interest in the hobby

    UPS make special delivery ... May not seem train-related, but in these trying times, it's just about as important as playin' with trains!

    The first of several purchases this month. If only my local hobby shop would re-open. I am saving some purchases for when it does. This is what I received from M.B. Klein/ Model train Stuff today. Some testors paint thinner, mine was getting cloudy even after filtering. Some Osborn Roof Trusses for detailing the lumber yard. I think I may be painting on those metal plates that join them together. Can't think of the name right now. Makes for quick assembly and generally strong except when they burn. They tend to fail quickly in fire situations. Now station platform kits may have you thinking I am adding passenger service but I am using them to kit bash an open lumber shed like in the second photo.

    Two more packages on their way to me. One, some Cal-Freight details from DebenLLC and the other two structure kits from Perplexing Puzzles Plus.
    Stay safe everyone.

    Got a lot of wire in preparation for track laying in, hopefully, not too many weeks. Work hasnít really ended for me, I always work from a home office. The spools are from Mouser and the custom lengths are from WireBarn. I have some more interesting items too, but their quarantine has a few days to run yet, before Iíll open the boxes.

    Have you tried contacting the store by phone or eMail and see if you could pick up stuff or they might deliver or ship it? Don't know if you tried it already, don't know if it's even an option in your area (or how local your store is) - I just know we have a few places around that offer exactly that.

    Even then I don't know if I'd take that as a valid reason to break the lockdown. But IMHO it's always good to know your options.

    All the best,

    I am coming back to n scale after a few years messing about with Marklin 3 rail. I have found an n scale specialist in the UK. So far I have purchased an Atlas EMD MP15DC - Union Pacific 1348 (DCC Equipped and 10 freight cars. I will be building a shelf switching layout.
