Not a Kato but paint schemes works!
Three early Trailer Train piggybacks and a couple more Rock Island Golden State 6-6-4 sleepers (Golden Plaza and Golden Mesa).
Bachmann 2-8-0 n scale that was listed as junk. Was going to be disassembled and put in the round house, all four gears are split, but a part of me says give them a wrap of silk thread, hit it with some glue and see what happens. Or mold and cast a new set...
It was a really good Fathers Day run of purchases okayed by wife... but now its time to reign in the purchases.
Got two MDC Roundhouse old time passenger coaches in PRR paint for $40. Other listings had them for $60 each. Nice 77th birthday present.
A few years ago I was able to buy some parts for my Spectrum 2-8-0 from Bachmann. You may want to check their website and see what may still be available.
Bachmann also made a 2-8-0 that pre-dated the Spectrum model. The white gears tend to make me believe this may be one of the pre Spectrums. See Spookshows review:
Bachmann 2-8-0 Consolidation / 2-8-2 Mikado (spookshow.net)
I would think the parts are not interchangeable.
Agreed. If it's the old gen model from the '80s, no way. I couldn't see exactly what @COHiker06 had there.
Recieved a GN F7 A&B set. Now I can pull my mid-century Empire Builder with ABBA set. Also recieved a small Coast Guard cutter. It is a Xmas ornament that's just under 4 inches long. It's a pretty rough resin casting, but it might look OK in the background somewhere.
Alright this might finally be my last purchase of RPS Vehicles, probably not, and they sent the wrong truck at first as it was supposed to be a Black Police truck, but they sent a regular Black truck. Today I received the Black Police truck at NO Charge, me happy! And I get to keep the regular Black truck too. I really like these vehicles, a lot I have 8-10 packages of them now, with 2 trucks in each package!
this nifty little Kato open-air passenger car I found on Ebay
Awesome; I love the prototypes even better! I still drive my white 2002 F250 crew cab short bed w/7.3L turbodiesel. I bought it new in 2002. It was my daily driver for 18 years, and the only reason it isn't still my DD is because I retired and don't drive anything daily anymore. Best vehicle I have ever had!
I just bought 3 of them myself! The white one (like my 1:1 but long bed) is sold out...
Yeah I missed the White one also ( and I really wanted it too ) when I first started buying them when a member here told me about them. I think the ONLY ones I don't have ( except the railroad specific ones ) is the RED and ORANGE service trucks. But I might just order those too maybe if they are still around in the future. I really like these trucks for the price. Been ordering them for month's, keep thinking they are gonna run out soon, but not yet, except for a few.
Which ones did you order @BigJake ?
I think that was me a while back, haha. Bought a bunch of white service trucks and decaled them for Metra. I think Atlas bought the tooling and is releasing soon (might be out for preorder) similar sets for CN and other railroads.

While cruising the Thrift Shops today I picked up four small clamps to hold boards together at a square corner. Should help build things for the layout.
I'ld give some pictures if I can figure out how to get the digital camera to connect to the computer without the special programs.
I also bought the 'Police' trucks. I bought the 'Sheriff' trucks too. All will be on THERR as a dedication to my late Brother In Law who worked for both agencies before being murdered by a drug dealer !
We have been busy moving everything out of the house and back in after 2 days of having new carpet put in the house. Hope to get back out to THERR RV and the layout after this weekends Nascar race.
Take the memory card out and use a card reader. The card reader shows up as a drive letter on your computer.
