    I got a couple of Jeeps. Collecting and restoring classic cars is another hobby I have and I worked out a great deal on a Jeep, full size which I bought from an estate in Maine.

    I work in operations for a trucking company so I managed to get one of out trucks to pick it up and bring it here to Montana. Just after working out the deal on the full size Jeep, I purchased an 1/87 Jeep. I have an obsession about collecting HO scale vehicles for the transition era and whenever I find one I don't have, I gotta get it.

    Long time since I last saw those center meeting windshield wipers. Are they electric or vacuum?

    Yes, it has vacuum wipers, and it has vacuum tubes in the radio and the radio actually works. Only has 32,000 original miles on it.

    A video instead of a photo.

    Bachman SD40-2 just arrived today. Fits my budget. Almost.:D

    Rolling stock is all 20+ years old. The locomotive is my first DCC engine and I'm learning about it as I go. Track is incomplete because I ran out of track, but couldn't wait to run the train.

    Very nice. I bought an Intermountain Cab Forward last fall and have just a few of the ice reefers so far and well, need a bunch more. Great find!

    Cheers, Jim
