    Default What are you buying this month, June, 2020?

    This came yesterday, June 1st, and I am posting it for @Heiko, who pointed out I had the wrong Bord-Restaurant car for the BR 402 ICE-2 of the DB-AG. This is also in honor of the return of @Moose2013.

    ICE-2 with correct Bord-Restaurant car:



    Heiko, your information was much appreciated! Now, if anyone wants a z21 DCC starter set WITHOUT train, send me a message. Small oval of Fleischmann track, controller, and z21 white system. Never out of the box.
    Cheers!

    I know I have said this before but I love your scenery and the detail you put into it - excellent, not to mention that ICE Train as well

    I wasn't planning to buy anything but this followed me home from the thrift store today:


    Paasche double action airbrush and Paasche compresor with regulator and water trap. Got the whole rig for 65 bucks! Looks like it's only been used once and then put away dirty. There's solid lumps of red and black paint in the bottles, and the cup and airbrush were plugged with blue. I figure even if I have to replace the bottles, cup, needle, and cone, I'm still WAY money ahead. A new compressor alone would cost more than that!

    WOW! Good find! The best thing I've found at a thrift store is a china collectors plate with a Southern Ontario train station (I collect pictures of Ontario train stations).

    I ordered and received a handful of these for DCC distribution:

    They look great ... I use something similar but are much bulkier than what you have. Wonder if they are available in the US?

    Will these be worth more if I don't open the package? LOL. Somehow, I think not.

    Work well, though it would be nice if you could secure it to one side so it doesn't fall off when you take the mask off. Nice print job, no strings.
    I could think of more fun things to get from that address but it should prove useful.

    I think he meant rubber band to secure one side so it won't fall off when the mask is removed.

    Yesterday afternoon I received a package from a very good friend of mine who is in the process of changing scales. That package contained the following items:

    1. A complete (as new) set of ACF 60' Passenger Cars
    2. 3 x Box Cars with opening doors
    3. 2 x Tank Cars
    4. 1 x Flat Top Car
    5. 3 x Caboose
    6. 1 x 72' Streamline Passenger Car
    7. 1 x GP38-2 (I think) (DC)
    8. 1 x DD40 (DC)

    All pieces are in "as new condition" and very much appreciated. They say you only ever have 2 or 3 true and genuine friends during a lifetime ... I can tell you that I regard this "gentleman" as one of those people.
    Cheers Tony

    So, where does one go after mastering N scale? Z? T?

    @el Gato Gordo

    He has eye issues and is moving to HO, I believe, just so he can remain in the hobby.

    I'll try and put up some pics of what was sent later this evening as well, especially the DD40 which is absolutely HUGE!

    @wombat457

    Are you going to convert the DC locomotives to DCC?

    Will the DD40 run on your new layout given its size?

    I will eventually but am leaving them both DC at the moment. From what I believe, the DD40 will negotiate 11.5" curves so it "might" run on my small layout. If not, it will definitely run on my impending layout.

    This seems anti-climatic after my first post but I picked up this car on Ebay. I am going to have to get a few more somewhere. This makes four hoppers appropriate for my time period in my inventory. two Conrail, one Reading and one Delaware & Hudson. I think I need at least five more cars. At least one more D&H but mostly Conrail I think. Cheers! Maurice
