    Yes I can’t wait to hear it myself and I do plan on making a video, but I’m probably going to have borrow my daughters movie camera because my camera doesn’t record sound very well.
    This is a first for me! :tb-biggrin:

    I can't post photos of everything I got recently, basically there are too many. After 3 years of selling off my overstock I am back in the "buy" mode, and now I am collecting, no, make that earning, a pension and social security, which combined are more than enough I need to live on and even save a little, I am replenishing some locos I sold and regretted. So here is what I purchased over the last 3 months and 2 more I have set my sights on......

    My sources of purchase are eBay, 2 swap meets, a couple of trades with friends, and 3 hobby shops, one of which acquired a lot of used stock from an estate.

    4 -- ConCor Kato Hudsons, various styles and roadnames
    3 -- Model Power Pacifics, various tenders and roadnames
    2 -- Model Power Mikados, B&O conv tenders
    1 -- Model Power American
    1 -- Kato GS4
    1 -- ConCor Kato E8a
    1 -- Atlas/Kato C630
    1 -- ConCor Rivarossi SW1500 w/calf UP
    1 -- LifeLike BL2 WM
    1 -- Spectrum Consolidation warranty return, C&O
    1 -- Atlas/Kato RS11 undec
    2 -- Kato Dash-9's BNSF Heritage

    I have set my sights on 2 more locos, one of which I will purchase tomorrow.

    1 -- ConCor GS4 Daylight
    1 -- ConCor Decapod 2-10-2 UP

    Plus a couple of MOW cars, 12 ConCor Daylight Passenger cars all in the last 2 months.

    Then that will be the last of it for awhile, while I concentrate on finishing landscape on my layout for the fall.

    Whew. One of the perks of being single!!!!

    No new pictures yet, but in the last few months, I have got a 2-6-6-2, and a 2-6-0. Also kit bashed a burro crane. (awaiting a new airbrush for paint.)

    In the not so distant future, I am planning on building another class C climax and the "Skookum"

    Pics will follow later....

    ....over the past month I've managed to purchase 12 locos for my layout. They are as follows; (3) BNSF AC4400CWs, BNSF SD70MAC, (2) BN Sd70MACs, BN SD38-2, (3)UP C44-9W, SD90MAC. All Katos and they were purchase from a particular website that everyone, especially me, love to hate. I guess it's the only place where I can afford these beauties. I also managed to seal 4 chassis 2 katos, an Arnold and a Minitrix in one auction. I'll be using them for future projects.

    12 pak of NS Triple Crown roadrailers, and a Rio Grande GP-9.
