    Various stuff in preparation for my module build and to get going with the Gottardo:

    Pneumatic nail/spike gun. Cheapo, but if it lasts for the module build, it can break down afterwards for all I care.
    I have a fairly large airbrush compressor which should be sufficient, but if not, I can borrow a larger compressor from a friend.


    Angle vices


    Assorted decoder wire


    Assorted soldering tips
    nScale.net: Elsewhere Yard
    nScale.net: AT&SF West Valley Division (abandoned)

    As the bank and debit card were subject to an attempted hack (Australia is, at the moment, under intense cyber attack from a 'forign power') I closed them down before the refund. PayPal passed the refunds on to a now nonexistant account....and no one's seen it since...and I still​ don't have my items... So don't complain about 11 days, consider yourself lucky....

    It obviously depends on where something is coming from. I order something from Midwest with USPS and get it within 3 or 4 days with proper tracking. I order from Mike Fifer, get the order is 3 or 4 days but no tracking updates from USPS other than the initial "a label has been created". I have an order coming from Hobby Lobby in Oklahoma and according to USPS Tracking, they (USPS) are still waiting to pick the order from up from Hobby Lobby as of the 14th????

    It's all hit and miss and to my way of thinking - USPS Tracking isn't trust worthy, just like fedex.

    A lot of interweb vendors are using mailing services, which have varying ideas of "post-haste." Euro Rail Hobbies, in British Columbia, uses a service that creates a label, thus getting entered into the USPS system, but may not actually mail it for a week or more.

    Not all of the delay is due to the USPS.

    Yes, I'm doing pre-employment medicals for a 2 year job up north, building another iron ore railway for FMG. With the covid restrictions, I'll be away for 4 weeks and home for 2 weeks. I'm getting together a small kit to take away with me with some plastic and wood structures to work on. Not sure if Vallejo paints can get through the airport gestapo though....

    You can bring knives and sharps like what's in that tool box onboard a plane?

    Exactly my thinking. Shouldn't be an issue in checked baggage. The spray can of dullcote will have to go but I'm planning to take the airbrush and compressor so maybe a bottle of that too... I'm sure Zap won't cause a problem either. It'll all be boxed in my bag.

    I know it is a joke(?) but Uh - you don't want to do that- CBSA can be strict and you could be banned from re-entry into Canada, lose your job and face a fine.

    Some resupply and a couple of more cars from the Bay. White glue and turf for my puffball tree project, stirrers for stirring the glue/water mix. Another hopper for hauling culm and a covered hopper for an industry called Celotex which was on the West branch, when I get to it. They received starch in N&W cylindrical hoppers. Delaware Valley and then Bowser made them in the N&W scheme. For some reason they stopped. Must not have sold well. They still produce other schemes. Cheers! Maurice

    At least it won't be the spray glue, that could be a 'sticky' situation....

    Last night, about 5:00 pm Mountain time, I placed another order with DM-TOYS in Germany. Once again UPS claims that it will be delivered Friday, June 26th. When it arrives there will be photos and an update.
