    The Vero Beach Model Railroaders had our 4x8 O gauge layout at a show a couple of weeks ago. I usually run my NYC 0-8-0 with a short freight train. The loco is a basic set engine from a number of years ago. It's a good runner with smoke and basic sounds but isn't an expensive engine so I don't have to worry about it at shows.

    While perusing the aisles I found this NYC caboose for $5. It looks good but isn't lit. It will be the caboose I take to shows.

    I also found these tank cars for $5 each. They will have a home on my layout.

    That was my big shopping spree, $15 well spent INMO.

    The UPS man delivered this Railking Imperial Trump Train SD-70ACe and caboose set this afternoon.

    Tonight I was running two Trump freights. 2020 was pulling an intermodal train and 2024 was heading a reefer express. Passengers were served by an Amtrak Genesis pulling amfleet cars. It was a fun night of contemporary railroad action on the A&JB.

    You make it hard to resist the lure of Lionel and it's cousins. :)

    I received an order from Menards Friday. In it were these two modern tank cars

    I also bought a box of 16 modern autos for my Lionel Evans Auto Carriers. 12 of them went onto the 3 auto carriers I have

    I have 4 cars left over. They will find a home on the layout or maybe eventually end up on another auto carrier. I don't like the cars that Lionel supplies with the auto carriers.

    There was a train show in Melbourne, FL on Saturday and my only purchase was this gold bullion car.

    I doubt that there ever were any cars like this but it's a fun car to add to a freight train.

    I bought this jug band a while ago but forgot to show it here. They are playing in the gazebo at the Gitchie Goomee Noonee Wa-Wa Campground. I will eventually get chars and sitting people for an audience but right now the band is playing for their own amusement.

    I found a Ft. Knox gold bullion car at a garage sale in about '67 when I was a kid and have had it ever since. Never one to waste a mold, Lionel used the same carbody for its 3435 Aquarium Car, changing the center panel. It was motorized and the fish swam past the windows. (y)
