    I decided my C&O passenger train with the horse car was using the horse car for, well, horses.

    And I had included in my consist a boxcar, which I figured would carry hay, feed, etc. for the horses.

    So I bought some hay bales and some feed bags which will be positioned inside the boxcar, after I do a bit of painting to make them more realistic.

    I got these off ebay after a lot of hunting. You wouldn't believe how hard it was to find a buddha small enough I did find one that is included in an N scale temple set, but it cost about $50. And looked to be bigger than the ones I ended up with. I paid about $10. inc shipping so I was prittey pleased. They are silver plated too

    I've done the same thing for "human" skeletons for my Dragon Cave on the Rheinland-Bayern Bahn layout. Fun stuff under "Dia de los Muertos."

    Nice locomotive, little hard to fit sound but reward is a awsome running steamer. I have 3 pieces, one is for Orient Express car set.
    I LIKE TO WORK WITH BIG SHIP ENGINES BUT I SPEND MY FREE TIME AROUND N SCALE TRAIN MODELS.

    All of this is from my Local Hobby Shop (LHS) except the RSLaser window shutters. Strangely, RSLaser seems to be the only ones who make them in N-scale. Does anyone know of another manufacturer of window shutters in N-scale? The Kato track is for the last section of the East branch of my layout. The Vista road material seems to be the same "Foamie" material I buy in sheets from the craft store but with a sticky backing. The Pikestuff kit will be a plumbing supply dealer. The C&NW Yellow paint is for a car renumbering project. The Tamiya Panel Liner I will be trying out for the first time on a car weathering project.
    https://www.nscale.net/forums/showth...ng!/page46#top
    the Illinois Terminal gondola is by Atlas from the used basket. I plane to experiment with techniques for denting the sides on it. The shutters and WS fencing are for two residential areas.
    By the way, notice the two different colors of foam. I bought a couple of those handy 2 ft. by 2 ft. panels for this section. The green ones are from Lowes, which I purchased previously. The purple (or is it dark pink?) ones are from Home Depot as both local Lowes were out of stock. They seem to be the same type pf foam. I hope.
    Sadly, since my LHS is closed now until July 31 for vacation, this will probably be my only post in this thread. Yeah, right.
    Cheers and stay safe all. Maurice

    Just received these in the mail today.The Herbie love bug will make an great addition due to the era it represents. The trees are from wish. They are definitely great for your money’s worth! The Atlas Missouri Pacific #854 is the second one I have on this exact model. I have some decoders coming later on from Iron Planet hobbies. For this locomotive and another one without road numbers. This would make my whole operating Missouri fleet DCC. The other two locomotives ,my hallmark and British shunter which I have solely for display only. Are DC only so far. Not to mention some whistle post for the layout.

    Nope. My youngest is 27 (last June) and my oldest is 34. Haven't gotten any checks from the Gummerment since the very first one. But then I've been very lucky and can do my work from home.

    I did buy two BLI PRR T1's from Factory Direct Hobbies for the 4th of July sale and picked up a Walthers/Life-Like 0-8-0 off Ebay. So that's been good.

    I also picked up 8 PRR P70 coaches from the latest run, but that was at the end of June so belongs in another thread.

    No pics. I'm lousy at that.

    What am I buying this month? A new pump for the household well. Without water this property loses 95% of it's value and the house would be uninhabitable. Also, probably, a tractor to replace our ancient Kubota B7100. Ancient. My archeologist friend calls it an "artifact." So old that the diesel engine was designed without a water pump and coolant circulates by convection.

    Model railroad purchases may be limited this month, since we don't finance this sort of thing.

    It is all about having our priorities in the right place. I agree about not financing things like that, if avoidable. We are actually going to price out a replacement well pump and pressure tank. We hope to replace it before it goes out on its own, and avoid an emergency call. 23 years is a good run for a well pump. I don't want to push our luck too far.

    Visiting Houston, Texas and found a local hobby store that had these two lying around. I don't model Southern but finding Trainworx trailers in stock and at this price was too good to pass up

    Just another n-scaler.

    Just came in the mail today.Another locomotive added to the fleet. A custom painted and weathered Missouri Pacific SD40-2 Kato with DCC. I checked the original locomotive #6038 and it matches! Just had to clean up the wheels and it was ready to go!
