    Counts towards the month that they arrived, and ya gotta post photos - that'll be quite a haul!

    And I believe one photo per turnout per The Moose Rules is the expectation!

    I generally take credit in both months.

    Wasn't expecting it but the black polyfiber from Micro-Mark arrived today and my Neo-Lube from PBL yesterday.

    The poly-fiber is different somehow but I can't quite describe it. The Woodland Scenics stuff seems more consistent (edit: maybe more uniform is the right term)while the Micro-Mark stuff has some parts that are more compressed than others. They both work for Puffball trees, the color being more a matter of personal preference at this point. The Neo-Lube bottle from from PBL is different from what is available from Micro-Mark as well. Different bottle and the Micro-Mark bottle is labelled Neolube No. 2 while the stuff from PBL is just Neolube. Seems to work the same.
    Cheers!

    Well, technically, I didn't buy this stuff. I traded some old 'O' scale stuff with a friend.

    Yes, it's a 1969-1970 Revelle/Rapido N-scale set. And yes, I'm a sucker for vintage n-scale.

    And a Bachman GP60 Practically new-in-box. Yeah, yeah, it's a Bachmann. I'm a sucker for Santa Fe too (and the price was right).

    More bits and bobs ...

    And last, but not least, a DPM kit #505, "Goodnight Mattress Company".

    Oh, and I finally pulled the trigger on an Elegoo Mars 3d printer. Should be delivered by the end of the weekend. Christmas is in July this year!!!

    I like the "Special Offer Inside" with a coupon worth one-whole-dollar! Gives you an idea of what things cost back then!
