    Not much exciting this month. As I was making an Amazon order anyway, I ordered some Tamiya airbrush cleaner and a cleaning kit to try to De-gunk-ify the Paashe double action I found at the thrift store a couple months ago.

    Seems whenever I put an order together, I can never find a single hobby shop that actually has everything I need, but I found Blue Rail Hobbies actually had the rest of my list this month. A new 00-90 tap and drill set, some graphite, and some Tichy brake wheels for a project I'm working on. Never tried that store before, we'll see how the service is.

    I got a bumper lot of goodies in the post

    First off was this lot of pre 60's vehicles from Rasputen
    IMG_3078 (2).jpg
    I am seriously impressed with them and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

    Next up was this book about copper mining and the involvement of the Great Northern and Canadian Pacific railways. A well researched book full of photos of steep grades, Shay's and Consolidation's.

    And finally, this book about CP in the west. Lots of info and not seen before photos. Well recommended too.

    In all, an excellent haul that has put a big smile on my face
    Thanks, Tom

    Moose finally get 'round to going to local model railroad store to pick up needed scale lumber for East Port (Moose Port) build, and ... Nothing! They had nooo scale lumber...


    Moose ask proprietor about his lack of scale lumber stock [and paint stock], and he tells Moose that [area where these products are displayed] is his "dead aisle." Say whaaa?! Yeah, he not gonna restock such items any more...


    So, needless to say, Moose order lumber online. Moose have to wait for post human to deliver. Moose no doctor, so Moose no have patience...

    Does cork grow on trees? LHS owner says there's a cork drought. Although he did have 18 pcs on hand. I promptly hoarded all of it in true American fashion.

    Check your local hardware and/or auto parts store for 'cork gasket material'. I got some from the neighborhood hardware store a couple of months ago. Came in a 12 x 18 in roll. A bit stiffer the the model railroad stuff, but it works for me.

    If it's the store I'm thinking of, Moose, the entire establishment strikes me as a "dead aisle." Been there once, won't go back.

    A very useful tool, @Heiko! Together with some keyboard cleaning attachments I use mine to clean track and the rest of the layout.

    From the St Pete Train Show last weekend…

    16 pcs. Old School Atlas, made in USA, Flex c80 for $10, for the bundle.
    Disappointed so many were not wearing mandatory face masks.
    Didn’t hang around, didn’t make my usual second pass around the show floor.

    This just came in the mail. Now I can indulge in what to expect If I was to start working for the Missouri Pacific Railroad back in the late seventies.
