    I had forgotten about this order. I took advantage of the sale from River Point Station which finally arrived today.

    @Silent1961, You'll be able to open a Ford dealership with that lot ! Any discounts for nsn members

    Great haul and will be interested to see what you do with them.

    The book I referenced here https://www.nscale.net/forums/showth...091#post605091 arrived a couple days ago.

    I am battling with starting afresh on an early 1990s shortline spinoff located in the Palouse. Name of said railroad has been rattling around in my imagination for 22-plus years. I'll keep it secret for now, but it was a UP property.

    The author is from @Bronman's neck of the, er, sagebrush-studded wilderland.

    Moose responsible for the design and layout of the decals. Mr. Brillinger had to tweak some of the images to make them printable, but the cost of that was covered in the nominal set-up fee.

    This is the second time that Moose has used Mr. Brillinger. Moose highly recommend him. Very easy to work with, helpful getting Moose to fix own moosestakes, and fast!

    More PFE reefers by MicroTrains and Intermountain. Same seller in France as earlier this month.




    Three Minitrix ore hoppers for my "Langer Heinrich" ore train, so now I'm only two hoppers short of a full prototypical 50-car consist.
    One standard European open freight car as a bonus. Not really needed, but this lot was from a Danish seller, so bids were low because of the stated shipping cost. Got it for a bargain and I knew I could get a lower shipping fee.

    2 packages arrived today, one from Otter Valley in Ontario and another from a US supplier. This now gives me enough decoders combined with previous purchases to do about a third of the fleet. The fun part is to find the time to actually install them all. Or at least one LOL.

    A fair seller on ebay had a MEC steel caboose for under $21 w/ shipping included as buy it now. N Scale - Atlas - 43012 - Caboose, Cupola, Steel - Maine Central - 659 (trovestar.com)

    I was surprised by the fine detail on this model and realized how less detailed a couple of other cabooses I have are, especially with no window glass.
    I have not been big on running caboose on my layout with only 2 random other road units used with a work train. I decided I should buy at least on each caboose for my handful of New England roads I run.

    A new acquisition from DM Toys, which I ordered on Friday. This is by Fleischmann, a Swiss BLS Re 465, DCC with sound. I also bought one 1st class car and three 2nd class.



    The yellow stripe above the windows on the second car indicates 1st class.



    And NO, it is not a disiesel. I just have the pantograph retracted since I don't have catenary installed yet.

    Another day and another package from my buying "frenzy" about a month back. This time from Plazajapan. A small motorized chassis for another project I have been planning for almost 3 years. The layout construction still has priority so I won't even provide any hints yet as it will be some time until this one comes to life. This is the last component needed.

    Easy does it big feller. You got a picture. This will be for the lower deck. The upper deck in preparation for The Canadian takes priority as the cars are coming in April and the locos are due around the end of June. You'll see something later this year though won't be the finished scene. Don't you have some steamers to keep you busy in the meantime?
