    • Yesterday, my pal Jack and I did a short road trip to Bokeelia on Pine Island where there were a few trains for sale - a friend had left them to the current owner, who wanted them gone. 

      There wasn't much of interest - a lot of track, including a 10' USAT cirle (looked new,) a couple of Aristo medium radius switches and crossings, a Ruby live steamer, and a like-new-in-box Anniversary 4-6-0. I think they'll turn up on Facebook at very low prices, so if you happen to need any of those, let me know and I'll pass on the word.


      Jack and I split a box of Ozark bits and wheels. He got 20 pairs of USAT shiny wheels and a Bachmann flatcar, while I got a stash of Ozark bits.



      These are old - Ozark hasn't been located in Missouri for years. I sorted through them this morning, and here's what is in the pile:



      They are all on the current website, where I got the latest prices. I was quite impressed by the link-and-pin couplers with working draft gear, springs included.

      All I want to keep are 1 pack of NBWs, 2 sets of link-and-pins, and the last 4 items of loco parts. The following link is to a much larger image, so you can download it and view the packets up close and personal.


      I am happy to sell these for 1/2 current cost (Today$ column) plus $1 shipping for any number of parts.  Let me know if you'd like to take some off my hands.

    • A big thank you to you all for your helpishness in my quest.  I'm happy to relate that I am now the proud owner, not of one, but TWO fine cabeeses, thanks to your counterparts over here [if such be at all possible ;)].  Not only do I have an extended vision caboose for CN, but a bay window NYC version that already has all the dozens of bits of ironwork painted in yellow - thus saving me the chore of taking it all out and/or masking it to paint.  A couple of minor details would need my attention in the general outline thereof, but nothing that I can't withdeal.  they were advertised as second-hand, but have no signs of ever having been on a track.


      Furthermore, such was the zeal of the vendor to clinch the deal that I got both for not THAT much more than the price of a single item, which, as you know over here, can be extortionate to say the least, but they arrived within twenty-four hours pf my address confirmation.


      As soon as I've figured out the correct shade of blue, I'll be dismantling the car body and getting on with airbrushing the finish, having gotten Stan Cedarleaf on the task of producing the lettering.  TBH, he is the very least of my worries - his incredibly short tunrround times are a lesson anybody in a small business, and I really wouldn't bother even trying to go elsewhere for my decals.


      I'll show it to you when I'm done, and thanks again for all the assistment.

    • Terry...I wish I could say that I have one available.....yes we do have several in operations here, but they belong to others.   I will keep my eyes open for a freebee for you...there is no price that can be put on giving, to fellow model railroaders...and surely there is one to be found sitting on someone's shelf, somewhere.

          One of the fellows, Bruce Chandler, on LSC is giving away all his railway, track and some locomotives and rolling friends and anyone willing to remove it for him.   Even his buildings which are works of art, are free, along with all trees, bushes, and roadbed......Truely a generous person.

         A great sign that greed does not rule.....

    • I'm looking for a 1/29th USA Trains extended-vision caboose in any road name, in fair to good condition.  I'm going to be replicating the caboose running on the Oregon Coast Scenic Railway, and have their persimmon to replicate the wording and logo.  Mr Cedarleaf will be doing his usual fine job of that as and when I find one I can afford.  The one that I was offered here in for just over $200 + shipping was already repainted [with a spoon] and somewhat modified [the bay windows were missing].


      I HAVE to do it now, I've got the special paint mixed up.....
