Thanks for that, and her at Temple Meads as well!

I think some Blue/Grey stock might be in order (he said, stretching his time period back further...)

Again guys, any excuse to put a new photo up for your entertainment!

The locos are my two newest acquisitions.  The one on the left only arrived today and the other one was one of the duo I purchased at TINGS.

Enjoy!

My latest addition is a freightliner shed 66562, not given it a run yet but either way nice looking even if it is a bit “new era” for me.

Very nice

I do fancy a Freightline 66, but it’s low down on the list atm.

Would be added to my post private fleet, but really want a Freightliner 08 first...

Here are my latest acquisitions - two CP Rail SD40-2s. I ordered them early in 2014, they were due to be delivered at the end of 2014, and they have finally arrived - a bit shy of 3 years late. They are gorgeous beasts with a high level of detail including wire grab irons, a Sinclair antenna on the roof, skinny handrails, and separately applied windscreen wiper blades. Unlike the Kato CP Rail SD40-2s, they actually model the Canadian prototype with nose mounted headlights and the bell above the cab.

My two locos have Loksound and are easily the most expensive locos I've ever bought and ever will buy. And, I've got two more that are about to be delivered in British Columbia Railway livery. They showed up pretty large in the bank statement as my wife noted.






Here is a short clip of one of them running with about 10 minutes on the clock. The sound on these things is huge which has been noted by other purchasers - I've decided to dial it back.

Very nice, I remember when 30J and 31J used to run to Philly, it was always a treat seeing them cross the high line in the morning sun.

Sadly a scene that no longer happens.

Just don’t drop them off the side of the layout.

Postman delivered two more packages, one containing a hard to find Virgin class 86, and the other a Virgin Tram (postman still has two more deliveries to finish, a voyager and an Amtrak ACS64).

Thanks Intercity for showing me that my profligacy can be exceeded. But, of course why not go for it? Good stuff.

In my recent post, the Youtube thumbnail appears to show the SD40-2 close to the edge. The telephoto lens makes the edge look closer than it actually is. The distance between the closest rail and the fascia board is 6.5 cm so the loco would have to topple over and do a bit of a horizontal skid to go over the edge. The swinging elbow is a bigger (ever present) risk than a derailment, I think.

Disappeared 'thank you' button sometimes happen to me. Anyway the sentiments are appreciated.

Made my first engine purchase today from the ‘bay. Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh.



I also bought this little fella the other day too. A little random as a first purchase but I liked the look of it so why not!  :D




I hadn’t deliberately gone American but I thought they both looked quite interesting.

If only I had more time to actually build a layout for them to play on! :hmmm:

Nice.    Older Atlas/Rivarossi diesel? Looks like it has skate/plunger pickups, and the vertical can motor on one bogie?      Go easy with it, I don't think you can't get the motors new any more, and the commutator on these motors is known to melt and fail if overheated.

Thanks for the advice. I’ll definitely go easy with it. It was listed as;

 “old Atlas used N scale USA Southern Pacific railroad FM 'C Liner' diesel and a baggage car”

I’ll be asking about servicing at some point in another thread I’m sure!

The baggage car looks like an interesting piece of machinery. To be sure, it was used to carry baggage, but the windows along the side look like they belong to sleeping quarters for a transcontinental train crew.

Can anyone set us straight on this?

It's a baggage-dormitory (as that's written on the car), so would have had crew sleeping space there. Except that the Southern Pacific Daylight was a daytime train and didn't carry sleepers, so also no need for a crew dormitory. ;)

I like the 5-axle Fairbanks-Morse C-Liner. This B-A1A passenger version was rare in real life (most were B-B), and the Rivarossi was the only model ever made of it. I have a PRR version although they only had a few B-B freight units.
