All going to plan, I'll start the build thread come the weekend

    Got a pilot truck for the old Bachman 4-4-0. Hopefully I can get it back on the road and avoid a stampede.

    Good find, Russ!

    What an incredible amount of boiler pressure! Crown sheet failure on say a typical 225-250 psi boiler would result in catastrophic failure like a 1000-pound bomb exploding. But six times that much boiler pressure? Incredible.

    This was listed at 50, but threw out an offer of $20 for the of it, which was surprisingly accepted. Retail at 10 bucks each. Yes, please.

    This beauty arrived today, fresh off the assembly line. Fleischmann BR 043, the oil fired BR 44.
    Note that the cab is the ÜK type without the foremost side windows. I fully expect Fleischmann to release a 043 with a different cab within the next year or so.

    In preparation for the second wave of covid, just picked up this monster....its YUUUGEE! 14.5 x 5 inches footprint on the main building! It will definitely be the centerpiece of the layout! The price was monstrous as well but sometimes ya gotta say what the . I'm justifying it as an early Christmas present to myself. Yeah, thats the ticket.

    Here is a great build thread for that very kit! He starts with a DPM kit but switches to the Dairy later in the thread.

    Didn't have such a fancy camera back when I built this , but it is built out of the Tanning and the dairy building.

    I finally made time to post some pictures.

    Two Hy-Cube Box Cars

    Two Mini metals 1954 Pick Up Trucks. I have to add I'm a little disappointed in the quality.

    And finally a Woodland Scenics Water Tower. Expensive but had an Amazon gift card to off set the cost.

    Even with the lack of quality with those Mini Metal trucks, they're not terrible.
    I wish they'd make more that are a little more modern, say in the 70's era?

    A lot of Atlas 60' Boxcars and a new Rapido Dash 8-40CM CN "barn".


    I chose 2443 because it was one I've seen in person, albeit a few years ago.


    Also had a Graham Farish set arrive, featuring a Class 31 and several wagons.

    Uhm
    too Much to list here
    I know its going to get me trampled with no photos
    Let's just say , a lot of WS Just Plug lights and hubs ect
    A whole whack of Evergreen models styrene for kit bashing
    A 36"×80 sheet of stryene
    A bunch of glue and a whack of paint for said kitbashing
    Some Walthers kits
    And just last night I did a trade for 4 DCC locos and another Walthers kit
    A roll of frosted window film for behind my windows in my building ( way way cheaper than the WS stuff , a lifetime supply for 2/3's the price of a WS kit) to diffuse the light more evenly and stop the looking Into a empty building with no interior
    And I getting close to ordering some more LED lights and resistors
    And with my obvious dementia I'm sure a bunch of little things I forgot

    Whats the date ? Crap were only half way thru the month . Uhm did someone say early Xmas presents to to me ? Yah thats how i will explain it lol

    I'm not sure if it really counts as purchased this month, but I took delivery of my Rapido CN Dash 8-40 late last week. It is sound fitted, like the rest of my small North American Fleet. It is quite exquisite.

    I don't hesitate in saying it is far and away the highest quality locomotive I have, and I have over 80, mostly UK outline, locomotives.

    It is reassuringly weighty and the detail is extremely impressive.

    This brings my North American fleet to two GMD-1s (CN), one Dash 8 (CN), and one SD-40 (BC)

    Best
