    Ran trains for Fathers day. This thing runs ok at higher speeds. The pickup issue is problematic in the tender and the sound chip has no inherent memory which is also very bothersome. I see new parts in it's distant future.

    And ran this freight to throw some variety around. Life is getting better, I think!

    Didn't get anything N scale in the last few weeks, but did get a few other things. A neat book, PIC_0490.JPG PIC_0489.JPG This period correct for my railroad book should make for some interesting reading, PIC_0488.JPG This buckle brought back memories as we saw her in Boise, ID in 1989 for the states Centennial!

    Was checking on the status of my new property yesterday, and was in time to get distracted by a train going by. Moving the Trainshed over here is in the future sooner than later. Yay!

    I can envision a path in the carpet, worn straight to a window with this view!

    The dining room has this view! And am putting in a window on the wall of the Living room facing this way! Might be a bit distracting......

    Made time this morning to run a few trains! It has been a while, so I had to run cabeese with wet dust monkeys in front of them! Here's some video proof,

    Well, the process of trying to keep work going, remodel this house and prep the Trainshed to move has been making me crazy. So I took the weekend last and went to Fargo for a trainshow, a really nice one! There wasn't a lot of N stuff, but what was there went for good prices! It was nice to get away and get somewhat rested up!

    I scored a few things while there, only two of which don't fit my era or layout, but......they were still NIB and at such a cheap price! A GN Empire Builder set by Kato.

    First thing at that table was this,

    PIC_0062.JPG And this IM 8000 gal tank,which are getting harder to find. PIC_0063.JPG And the aforementioned set which just had to find it's way to my boxes! PIC_0064.JPG PIC_0065.JPG And a very nice copy of Highliners and an NP blue lantern, hard to find for a good price! PIC_0066.JPG All in all, it was a fruitful weekend of fun and trains!

    Nice Russell plow. I custom'd one in GN Big Sky Blue, sold it last year to help fund a new camera!
