    Nothing too visualizing interesting -- a Tam Valley dual Frog Juicer. Dead easy to install and wire in.

    Nothing looks like coal quite like:

    I still can't get the Boyle Fuel Company (Spokane, WA) jingle out of my head after 50+ years. Every time I see, read or think about coal I hear, "When you need coal or oil, call Boyle" as sung by the Boyle Twins. Definitely will be the name of the coal dealer if I ever build one.

    Stay well

    In today's mail I received 18 ft of back drop for future extensions to the layout and also a package of push button switches for a new control panel I am building.

    But seriously, that Santa Fe Hudson looks like a beaut. How's it run?

    I've recently started using this stuff and really like it. I learned early on though that if you use an airbrush even the airbrush ready paint can require a bit more thinning than what is in the bottle. I like that it dries fast and less susceptible to over handling unlike testors enamels but it is more brittle and the colors may be off by a shade or two which is noticeable if you are touching up existing factory paint jobs. Not their fault though on that last bit but you will need other paints and match the exact colors yourself to blend them. As an example I have many BNSF locos I am detailing and the BNSF orange is a perfect match for the FVM locos but the Kato is a little lighter from the factory so I have to mix with a tiny amount of red and black to get it to match.

    I like that acetone/nail polish remover is an excellent cleaner and readily available/cheap but for thinning their paints I use Tru-color thinner which can get pricey.
