    Default What are you buying this Month (May 2020)

    Another month another purchase:



    THIS will be my last buy for my layout, but had to have at least a Fire Station, and a Volunteer one at that Now all I need is people to be volunteers and something for them to drive - don't like where that is going considering I am way over my self allotted budget already

    Yeah another AMB but it was the closest I could find for the era of my Town. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this AMB is one of their better/newer ones. Most of the others I looked at were too modern.

    We always need a bigger layout , isn't that a famous phrase , or was that "we need a bigger boat".

    Bigger layout, did this not start out as a test/interim build. In truth Tony, I think there are many who would love to have what you created (myself included). Cheers

    First of three orders from different sources. This was purchased by ordering through my local hobby shop. Two items (Blair Line one car garage and some evergreen plastic rod) were on back order. The Blair Line Section House tool shed I plan on using as a one car garage for Red's Store. The Micro Engineering Garage will be for one of the other houses in the neighborhood I am building. That was a bit of a surprise as I ordered it after seeing the photo in Walther's catalog but didn't read the description. I was expecting another laser cut wood kit, then I turned it over. It's photo etched brass! That should be interesting. Glosscote is for some decaling on some motive power. Plastic rod was for the flat car load I am working on. I guess I should say "was" working on all these projects as I put everything away while I re-think and redesign my layout. These three projects, the neighborhood, the locomotive repaint and the flat car load I plan on finishing eventually.
    Cheers!

    No photos because the items are already scattered throughout the workshop, but since April 1 I've had orders come in from Hobby Lobby, N Scale Supply, and Walthers already. I'm waiting on items from Atlas and eBay. And I may also put in an order with Wig-Wag-Trains before May is over. But, most importantly, stuff is getting done, and I'm saving a ton of money not traveling these few months.

    I finally found someone to do the mudding and taping of the new train room. He started last week, working nights and expects to finish this coming Friday night. Not much left to do.



    Then comes painting - a coat of primer on the walls and ceilings, then light blue all around. And then! And then!!!!!

    Just a few items I picked up. This is actually two orders, one from M.B. Klein/Model Train Stuff and one from English's/ Toy Train Heaven. I ordered both within minutes of each other and they arrived here on the same day. I really thought I would be waiting a while for the order from Toy train Heaven after reading their Covid statement on their web page. It makes it sound like they won't be shipping until the all clear is given.
    We have some creosote tie stain, some "used" ties. a couple of castings of an acetylene cart, some microbrushes (they are useful for many things) and couple of Rix Picks uncoupling tools. I already have a couple of the Rix Picks and just want to be able to leave them at different parts of the layout. The Piper Cub model is just something different to build, plus I know several people that worked at the Piper factory in Lock Haven, PA. No place to put it on the layout unless I suspend it from the ceiling. Now back to track planning.
    Cheers all!
