    Finally finished my two new E7s. Both have Kato E9 mechanisms with DCC. For the black on the number boards I used a small Sharpie rather than trying to brush paint on them.

    MRC version Model Power 4-4-0.

    The pulling power isn't that impressive (slips up grades) but the sound works with DC to my ear's delight. And it looks fantastic.

    I was going to get one of thoese as I've heard they run and sound awesome. How much of a grade are we talking about before it slips? And how much was it pulling?

    I think 6-7 freight cars up 1% the drivers just ended up spinning. There is only one traction tire set on the loco and the cab is lighter compared to the MP 4-6-2 so this wasn't surprising.
    It pulls my 4 passenger car Sante Fe setup just fine, but I have to run at a higher speed.

    A post by Rich_s earlier on this thread for the bluford bay window caboose prompted me to order one for myself as I was really impressed with their transfer caboose that I already have. Just arrived and again they did not disappoint. This thing is a beauty with applied handrails and pieces on the underside. I love my MTL stuff but these guys really do it right.

    Not N scale, but will probably be used to photograph it sometime this winter. Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 G2 lens.

    First photo from it is a blue hour oil can at Soo Tower.

    This showed up in the mail today. It's been a long wait for these to come out but it was worth it, they are really nice looking and great running.

    I heard these are hard to find since they are out of production. Scored one yesterday at a train show! :)

    Neat find! "Schnellrestaurant". I don't need a German/English dictionary to translate that. :)

    These were later replaced by the MacCafe version which is more modern. I prefer this older version you got. Good find!!

    I was a little confused as the included paper decals has "McCafe" signs which I didn't think was that long ago. I'm guessing 5-10 years ago McCafe was used as an advertising slogan.
