Lets see what new engines everybody's got!
I'll start it off!
Got it Sunday
No Photo yet, but I got a pair of Athearn F59PHI's in Amtrak West from Jim Reising......
Can't wait to see them!
Well I just bought an Athearn Santa Fe F45 Diesel Freight w/ Tsunami Sound, but unfortunately its in the mail. I have to wait until Wednesday to play with it.
You'll have to post a video if you can.. Id be interested to hear how it sounds.
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:
Looking forward to it!
Same here- I'd like to know how it sounds.
No pictures yet but I have 5 new locos in the past month. 2 BNSF SD70ACes, 2 Sd60 Soo and a BN GP 38.
Just one! It followed me home while I was on vacation. The wife said I could keep it.
I just have to get it DCC trained.
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!!!!

You should post some pics!
My last new engine is this Southern SD35.
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.
I like it.
Hey y'all! Been away from N scale for about 4 years, picked up an Atlas GP15-1 in UP this past weekend. Great model, I will be going back for the other road number soon. Now I need some sound decoders...
Post some videos if you can!
We would love to hear what they sound like!
The last new loco I got was in February. It's a Tomix JR EF66. My first foreign loco and my first electric:
Most recent purchases are a pair of Norfolk Southern SD70's, a
12 pak of NS Triple Crown roadrailers, and a Rio Grande GP-9.
