    I found a couple other things that I have but had not posted on recent purchases. So here we go

    eBay, for a set of 4 Micro Train wooden reefers, for $25, including shipping.
    Got to choose from 14 cars. Decided on. A pair of Menasha reefers, Tivoli Beer and Adolphus.
    Hoping I might be able to get the Ball jar reefer as well.

    I don’t like when these are lit up. It looks odd with the windows painted over, and the light doesn’t show through very well. On the real train when the windows are lit you can barely see the wrap, it’s like it isn’t there.

    This scheme isn’t my favorite. I love the 2019 train and I’m hoping Kato makes it next year. The 2017 and 2016 trains are far more festive looking than this one. The 2015 set only had 3 of the total 5 cars.

    Picked these two cars up at a train show yesterday. They will go well with the two modules that I am building.[​IMG]

    Just snagged, for cheap, the District of Columbia car, for the MT state series!
    Should have by early next week, depending on when it ships out.

    I have quite a bit of outland models on my z layout. I like them, but wish I would have painted all of them before gluing down.

    This came in, been playing around with it to determine the final layout I want (ignore the HO stuff). Worked perfectly out of the box.

    It isn’t a train, but very definitely MRR related. I just got a new Pace ADS200 soldering station. All I can say about it is WOW, the difference in soldering between it and my (not too old) Hakko is like night and day.

    The big difference is in the handset and the way it maintains the temperature at the tip. Rather than having a heating element with the tip screwed tight up to the element, these have the heater actually in the tips, along with a thermo couple in it. The other big difference is in how you can hold it.

    You can hold the iron at under 2” from the tip, and it is 100% cool. @jdcolombo has referred to holding this as “soldering holding a Mont Blanc pen”.

    At least she is wearing safety goggles, to prevent the strips of burnt skin from flying into her eyes!
