    A 2 pack of Fine N Scale PRR x29 kits, and a Ghq PRR L1 conversion kit for a Kato Mike; I've always wanted to build one of these kits!

    Just picked up a nearly-new A-B-A set of Life-Like NYC Erie-Builts and an Atlas Conrail B23-7. The B-boat fits in with my intended layout theme. The Erie-builts don't, but they were priced right compared to the unobtainium prices on The Auction Site That Shall Not Be Named™, and dang, thems is purdy! They'll look good next to my E-R NYC Sharks.

    Almost everything came in today, just waiting for the tcs F3 decoders from Fifer,
    And for this beauty to arrive, it’s a 79006S with the white LEDs and the Loksound.

    But I still wanted to share! I’m excited!



    I bought a bunch of stuff from Fifer, Streamline Backshop, Another shop, and EBay!

    BC04B2B1-6BA5-4E9D-824B-358A66BC1308.jpeg

    NIB! 160-060 and also the 4 articulated add ons 1-4 also NIB! (Already did the kinematics on them!)
    3x 11-214 LED kits from Japan with the warmer toned softer illumination LEDs to go with them.

    C32DB602-D2D6-4A35-851A-0E445CCEFCC5.jpeg

    I also got a NIB Kato F3a BW 6101 from SBS and found a very clean and nice used F3B so I can do an ABA with my 6104, as well as the MicroTrains short couplers and American Limited black diaphragms to get them nicely coupled together...

    0113974E-231D-4AF8-8931-4199E0CA73CC.jpeg

    And 3 more MicroTrains Overnight box cars (slowly building up a CME!)

    C1DD7F66-8A2C-4ED7-BD03-C75683E6FAB0.jpeg

    Got some 9g servos and ESU controllers, NCE light its for structure lighting (and maybe caboose marker lights?), all the fixings to do weathering on rail and rolling stock, some switches, and so forth also.

    I also got some cool little (photoetched brass? ) things from SBS to make the Mars lights look more realistic. Would also work on E7s, 8s 9s and FP7 when turned sideways to make them look like they have double headlights in the lower position. He was out of the Caboose conversion kits, hopefully he’ll have more at some point as I want to convert both mine to functional lighting as well

    And some bullfrog snot to make sure I can pull 1:160 scale houses off their foundations.

    Now I just need to build a place to RUN these things... :)

    Picked up a Micro-Trains B&O 40' boxcar,Clinchfield and Great Northern by deluxe Gulf by Bowser, and Frito-Lay Red Caboose or Intermountain covered hoppers. Thought $36 for all five was not bad. Also helps when have small layout on display to run on and free admission.

    Went to Delmont, PA to visit The shops of Scenic Express. Had my list of what I wanted in hand but still managed to do some impulse buying. Okay, I did more than just 'some' impulse buying. Among other things, I got some Woodland Scenic static grasses, a couple of 'Eco Packs' of 'Super Leaf' scale leaves for all those cheap Chinese trees I've accumulated off Ebay and some more #50 light gray ballast. To top it off, everything on my list was in stock. A very nice experience for sure.

    I just bought a Kato Mikado and a GHQ W-3 conversion. I have a spare LokSound decoder. This should be interesting...

    Just got this lot, more heavily weathered than I would normally like for 1953, but... 20 cars for $10 a car shipped?
    You betcha. A little light weathering and dirt on my “fresh from the shop” new ones, and a little black wash to tone down these (except for Mr 1954 there in the bottom corner) and I can mingle them together well enough.

    The Atlas code 80 #6 switches are really good. The ones with the blade-type points (USA-made?), anyway. About the only commercial switches I have never had to tweak before installation.

    That was a heck of a deal!!!
    Sort of wonder if the seller was not aware that 'weathering' is not bad thing... and priced it as if it would not be a desireable product for n scalers.

    I don’t know, no one else bid on them and there were watchers, so I guess they looked TOO weathered... or I got lucky.
    I was able to tone down some of the excess weathering on the trucks with black panel line accent, and remove the excess weathering on the overdone ones by rubbing with a little testors thinner on a paper towel.

    One of these is brand spanking new, the others came out of the above set and got toned down a bit... not a bad match.

    Not really a purchase but did happen upon 2 4ft x 8ft sheets of Owens Corning 2inch thick pink foamboard late yesterday. Going to be just the thing for a hopefully soon to be started 4x8 or smaller layout I'm planning.
