    Speaking of odd and interesting freight cars, I've had this old Atlas (Item 3024) car since the early '70s and have never figured out what its prototype is. I regret "weathering" it with a spray can as a kid.

    Moose finally move out of the stone age and purchased modern high-tech uncouplers for da layout!

    And they work pretty darn well... [​IMG]

    They're kinda pricey at $ 0.10 each to just have a few laying around da layout, but Mrs Moose figures that there just might be some other uses for the excess... [​IMG]

    After deciding that all but one of the 15 turnouts on the latest expansion of my layout are going to be manually controlled with push pull rods, I picked up a batch of DPDT slide switches. Also got some 2mm LED's to show turnout positions on a display panel.

    Got a new locomotive today! It’s a fantasy scheme but it will fit perfectly with my soon to be had Kato Morning Daylight cars. This is an Athearn F59PHI with Tsunami Sound. It was on clearance so I just had to get it!

    Thanks. It's amazing how every time I go to Amazon different items are shown. That wasn't there before.

    Nice headband and it's made by Donegan, the OEM of the original OptiVisor.

    Just receieved my Kato MyTram Blue articulated tram.
    Hoping I can get the Red version I ordered as well.
    Based on instructions, no lights, it light kit available.
    Don’t know about addition of DCC though. Might work
    pretty good, on the Levite’s loop I’ve got! Or maybe with
    the Kato Portram city scene sets.
