    Default What Are You Buying This Month? September 2020

    Okie Dokie, I'll start September off because technically I placed the order at 12:31am this morning.

    Ordered some ESU 50707 wheel power picks from TrainWorld.com.

    Picture to follow when (if) they show up.

    I don't always stop for trains, but when ... oh wait!, Yes I do.

    Probably a dual Frog Juicer from Tam Valley. But I may need @Moose2013 to exert some, er, "influence" on SWMBO. I might exceed my budget.

    Just arrived in the mail today. Rapido Dash 8-40CM. This is my first Rapido engine. Very impressed with the looks. Hope it runs good as well.

    Indeed! Hope it does justice to the scenery, too!

    Seriously, Paul.
    I don't know how you'll get out of bad standing with SWMBO after exceeding the budget, but I do think a stampede is the wrong way to start

    I got this one. I wish it was a chameleon, so I can change the paint scheme to whatever tickles my fancy. Anyway, I think it's cool.

    @SimRacin14

    Oooh, The Duchess of Hamilton She just needs a rake of LMS coaches now Her sister #6220 Coronation, briefly held the British steam speed record at a 114mph until Mallard snatched it off her.

    Those other little things are 'shunters' in the speak of their mother tongue

    Found this in the mail box this morning (yippee):

    ESU 50707 electrical pickups:

    IMAG1971-20200905-094344913.jpgIMAG1973-20200905-09434453.jpg

    Also purchased some cork gasket material from the local hardware store. It comes in a 12x36 inch roll.
    The cost per foot comes to $0.19 per linear foot vs the cork roadbed from train world which is about $0.29 per foot.
    Of course I have to cut it myself, but time I have, money - not so much.

    I would like to buy something from Scaletrains, but they haven't had many N scale announcements as of late.

    Excepting the new gas turbine. ...But that probably doesn't fit your era anymore than it does mine.

    But wait, 4608 is sitting right next to me! How can it be on your layout!

    Kidding aside, looks great on your layout! I like your scenery style. How does it run? (I'm without any track or controller at the moment to try mine out.)

    Picked this up at an antique store for a few bucks the other day.



    1976 reprint of the 1897 edition. LOTS of good early era info inside it, I can't put it down!
    I am well pleased with the purchase.
