    Me again!?!? So I got a nice bonus from work for various reasons I won't go into here, but part of it was the high stress we worked under. I decided to relieve some stress by buying something "non-essential". This Atlas MP15 in Reading & Northern paint scheme fit the bill. It is totally inappropriate for my time frame (1983) but I like the railroad and the paint scheme. This one had been sitting in the display case at my local hobby shop a while and I kept eyeing it up every time I was there. Like all my loco's it is DC but this is DCC ready. The Kato right hand #6 turnout it is sitting on was because of a change in the track plan. I knew there was going to be a problem because, somehow I measured the benchwork incorrectly. The last industry on the line needed space for a long string of cars to be assembled and incoming loads. The rearranging of the track plan required a RH #6. The Tamiya Panel Liner in brown I want to try for simulating rust. Finally some plastruct "I"-beam for kitbashing. Cheers all and stay safe. PS: in keeping with the season, Moose, be careful, "you'll poke your eye out kid!"

    I received the three Bluford shops coal cars from @AllenH and some decals from Highways & Byways for my grade crossings this morning. So I immediately applied the decals to the four areas in need and placed the three coal hoppers behind my new BLI SD40-2’a on the coal train that I have been recently running. Thanks again Allen!!!!

    The PCBs arrived today, I assembled one wiFred (minus the poti and direction switch, will continue tomorrow) and it works as expected Maybe worth a "weekly work report" tomorrow when it's all done.

    Also the parts announced for mid December have arrived already, now fingers crossed for the knobs (and the other parts I'll need to order from the same supplier as the knobs).

    The LHS in Louisville posted on FB yesterday that they had a couple of R.J. Corman locomotives. These FP7s are as local as I can get, as they pull the dinner train on regular excursions in my hometown. I hadn't even seen a pair for sale in the last 8-9 years, and only had one previous chance to get them. I wasn't gonna pass this up!

    Both sets are really sharp, @SimRacin14 and @bhoneydew! Although the Swiss set is RhB (Rhätische Bahn), instead of SBB. Amazing that such a small country has so many different railroad lines!

    Thanks, didn’t know there were multiple Swiss railway co’s. So are all of the Kato Swiss trains RhB?

    Switzerland is heaven for a railroad fan. So many things to see and so many railroads crisscrossing the mountains. Many European Kato models are made in cooperation with Lemke in Germany. Here is the current offering where you'll find both SBB and BLS models - Swiss Federal Railways and Bern-Lötschberg-Simplon, respectively. Also variations such as SBB Cargo.

    On their own, it is my impression that Kato mostly makes "famous" trains.
    Rhätische Bahn is an extensive metre-gauge system capable of serious name-dropping such as the Glacier Express, the Bernina Express, the Albula line with the Landwasser viaduct, St. Moritz, Zermatt/Matterhorn and on and on ...

    Thanks, very informative. Lemke has some nice Swiss trains.

    I purchased a couple MOW Units from BALDYLOX Designs. These are UP prototypes, but I will paint for current Alaska RR. MOW Engine that fits on KATO SD40-2, and MOW End Car (Work Caboose). Couldn't pass up sale on ESTY (not on Shapeways). Have to wait until early February for delivery. ARR MOW ENGINE SD40 2 a.jpgARR MOW ENGINE SD40 2 b.jpgARR MOW END CAR a.jpgARR MOW END CAR b.jpg
