    I placed 3 orders for Peco track and joiner so I can lay out the tracks on my main deck prior to cutting out subroadbed. It seems Peco supplies are getting scarce - I had to use 3 different suppliers to fill the order and joiners were hard to find.

    I don't know, Steve. I ordered from 3 stateside suppliers. Somewhat disturbing that rail joiners are back ordered, but I eventually found some. When this stuff comes in I'll start building stations.

    Wow, N scale laser cut wood kits have come on leaps and bounds. Just look at the detail on that

    Expect nothing except the opposite of what you expect, and then expect it to be something other than that ! Then that's about what it will be

    Accesories probably not included. But with all that extra space, he can 3D print those.

    Picked up a few Classic Metal Works Coca-Cola trailers for 4.99, normally 14.99 from Trainworld. Also grabbed several other vehicles on sale for 5.99 a pair and some other trailers for a Coca-Cola bottling plant I wand to incorporate into my yet to be built layout. In planning since 1995. Got some cabooses from fleece-bay....and some detail parts like roof vents, ac units, mailboxes, etc...

    Hoping to get something done before the apocalpyse.

    Great aquisitions, Rich! I hope I live long enough to see the bottling plant on your layout. Beware the trap of "someday". Someday tends to be a fictitious time in the future which never arrives.

    Picked up a few things from several sources.
    20200711_142559.jpg20200709_151846.jpg
    The structures are 3d prints from DIYandDigitalRRShop on Etsy. He also has a YouTube channel. Very reasonably priced and nice detail. The cars from Ebay. The Conrail hopper is the 4th road number I have collected. The D&H is the duplicate but I have already re-numbered, though the dry transfer I used wasn't as close to the font type as I thought. Hopefully, weathering will help blend it in. Some Kato track and cabling from Model Train Stuff and Toy Train Heaven. Yards eat up a lot of straight track. I forgot one other thing, traction tires from Bachmann for my Conrail GP40. They seem to fit but am having trouble putting the locomotive back together. Going to order some more track from LHS, however he is closed for vacation so I will have to wait. Cheers! Maurice

    I've got a lot of Kato products... probably 70-80 locomotives, 10-12 coal porter sets and passenger sets and a bunch of other cars. I decided to pick up one of their intermodal well car sets.



    I like Kato, I really do. But these things are awfully designed. I couldn't get the cars coupled without the plastic "connectors" coming loose from the cars, and then one of the air compressor tanks on one of the cars came loose and I have no idea how to re-connect it. I don't think I'll be picking any more of these up.

    I bought a sheet of open cell foam to use as roadbed. It is 1/8" thick and 80" x 72", cost, $12.99 plus shipping. Here is how it came today (yes, Sunday, via FedEx):



    Of course it was shipped in a box. I unwrapped the plastic an spread it on the carpet to see what I had:



    Too see the next step, go to the Layouts sub-forum. Just give me a few minutes to post there!

    More structures.....Got them for 100 including shipping and taxes....I think the seller put the buy it now by mistake, so I expect the deal will be rescinded, as just the municipal building alone retails for 80 bucks. .
