    Default What are you buying this month? (June 2022)

    Four freight cars and a bus.
    20220604_143635.jpg
    The Atlas Conrail boxcar came from Model Train Market. Yellow door cars were for "clean" lading, usually paper. I needed this for the printer on my layout, "Unigraphics". That gives me two Yellow door boxcars. The brown B&O boxcar is a R-T-R Roundhouse model that I got from E-bay. The blue B&O boxcar is a Roundhouse kit from E-bay. The covered hopper is by "Loco-Motives", a defunct company but their molds were purchased by Deluxe Innovations, which is also now defunct. It is a "data only" model and also bought on E-bay. The B&O boxcars and the covered hopper are because of a guy named Thom Placier. He has a great Youtube channel where he shows building and operating his great N-scale L-shaped switching layout and his G-scale garden layout, as well as some railfanning. On his N-scale layout he has two industries, based on the real place of Oak Hill, Ohio on the B&O in the early 1980's. He noted that Ohio Firebrick only shipped in B&O boxcars, so I decided I needed a couple to receive shipments from there. The covered hopper is for getting shipments from Cedar Heights Clay in Oak Hill. The actual industry had some of their own 70-ton covered hoppers, with their name on them. Thom had some decals made for them and kindly sent me a set, so they will go on this car. I actually don't have a customer for them on my layout so it will go on the Conrail through trains on it's way to a customer in New York state which Thom identified. He has done a lot of great research on his prototypes.

    This is the Rapido model of the GMC "New Look" bus. I pre-ordered direct from Rapido to help insure they got made. Shipping cost me nearly as much as I could have bought the bus from my local hobby shop. It is a really nice model. The interior is all blue so I removed the body to do some detail painting. I painted the floor black, the dividers aluminum and the fare collector aluminum and black. Bernard at Miniprints said he is going to try to make a driver for this vehicle so I am waiting hopefully for that. They offer it in many paint schemes, this being the New York City one, which is closest to my local one.
    Cheers all and stay safe. Maurice

    Post human delivered these today. The reefer will be painted for a regional farm's crops, bwaaa! (Insert evil moose laugh here). The hoppers will be repainted for the regional mining company.

    Speaking of slow boats, I have a few items in transit on a slow boat from Switzerland. Specialty Swiss stuff, some of which will involve an interactive pushbutton.

    Bought a Microtrains 1020 set of tweezers for coupler manipulation. Those things right now are hard to find! Bought 2 flat cars, 4 box cars, 1 livestock box and a reefer - pretty good prices at Trainz about $10/car - had the tweezers too.

    Picked up some rolling stock for my PRR/B&O layout. 3 Hoppers, a Boxcar, and a Caboose (since I'm modeling late 20's early 30's).

    I also got a pair of the Rapido "New Look" buses. Mine are also the blue ones. Guess you saved me the effort of posting pics of them! They do look great. In my opinion, they are a pretty good match for 1970's Centro buses that ran in Central NY. Did we wait long enough for these or what????

    I am going to refrain from making any purchases this month if you dang enablers will leave me alone. I need to start saving up for the lumber I need for bench work without taking out a 2nd mortgage on the house.

    Thrilled to have discovered that a pair of A/B units for B&M came out from BLI within the past year. I was able to get household funding approval and they came in quick! I know BLI has has some inconsistency reported, but new DCC B&M equipment in my era is hard to come by.

    Haven't tested them out yet, but at least had to put them on the track to take photos.

    It caused such a stir, the locals all came out to stare and admire the new diseasels!

    Some purchases from Caboose Stop Hobbies through their YouTube show. Two boxcars from Micro/Trains and a Roundhouse Gondola. A small garage and two sheds of unknow manufacturer. A resin dump truck and an Atlas car (Ford Fairmont perhaps). The "Rite Wey Thin Weights are kits (There are two packages) for steel plate loads with cribbing. Speaking of loads, on the other side of the tracks is a bunch of them. It was a bag of loads. I believe many are Micro/Trains. There is an HVAC unit, a crane body, a bunch of tires, several gravel loads, some pipes, and two different wood loads, one wrapped, one not. Last there are two tarped loads and two stacks of crates, possibly intended for boxcars interiors. An a pack of stakes for flatcars. The most expensive items were the M/T cars at $9 each. Cheers and stay safe. Maurice

    Wasn't a stampede. It was the crew that went rogue because they like dis'easels, much to Moose's chagrin. They were admiring rather than stampeding.
