It's certainly well-detailed, and a good rendition of the real thing, but I still think it's really ugly!

Today's arrivals...



Eight BBAs from Chivers/Slimrails and most of the bits of a point from Wayne - still needs instructions, but looking very interesting so far!

Cheers,
Phil

I think you need to invest some more money in foundations for your houses, they look precarious on that slope  :smiley-laughing:

Hi,
Hi "Steam-Driven Boy" where do you put the coal in  ???

 :laughabovepost: In the HHAs as so nicely demonstrated by bigbob  :thumbsup: for sure  :D
Although there'll be other loads for it to haul in due time, and when there's that layout to put under it all  :doh:
As previously mentioned on another topic, it's the 'boy' that's 'steam-driven' of course - my tastes in motive power range from steam/diesel/electric through to my Union Pacific gas turbine - behind the U50s:

If one were available I wouldn't hesitate in adding one of these:

Hi Nick,
Kato   did  release the   NYC  Jet Car as  one of  our members  Fifer  reviewed  here  they do come up from time to time on  ebay  &  Kato could rerelease them   yet  :claphappy:
Thanks for the link to the Fifer review, I did a search a few days ago but must have missed that, I did see an image of the Kato but without any information on it so assumed I'd already missed out  :( and then, naturally, couldn't find it again - I must remember to bookmark stuff  :doh: :-[
You may remember from previous postings that the U50s are in need of relivery from the totally fictitious ones in the piccie, naturally that hasn't happened yet either - still planning on a couple of UP and one SP  :drool: They do look mighty pretty as they are though so will continue to enjoy them that way until I'm fit enough to open the 'to do' drawer again  ;)
