    HOLY MACKERAL!

    I wish I could get a christmas haul like that. All i got was rolling stock ( acela cars, and a CNJ Caboose just like the one i did for my eagle project).

    I do have a C32-8, SD45-2 (sound equipped), and hopefully an C40-8W(also sound) i might grab.

    Seriously though, you REALLY need your own layout, and not just some tiny module.

    Gee, all I got form Santa was a set of NP F-3's, Proto 1000, but I did get all four. You must have been a very good boy Josh...?

    Actually, it was probably is Grandma who gave him all that. You should see one of his X-mas hauls from her, it was enough to start a hobby store!sign1
