    Some say that I have as much money in my 1/43 cars as I do in my 'O' :rolleyes: Gauge trains ! :D

    The last one is made by Franklin Mint. I don't remember who made the wagon, but you can pick it up from DiecastDirect. And yes, these do cost a little more than $5.00 eacch :cry:

    Good Morning All!
    Not much to report from the land of Buckeyes..Its fairly mild out this morning and the temp is 37 with calm winds.Once again NS living up to that old adage "Run 'em till they drop"..I been up since 7:30 and NS is averaging a train every 20 minutes.

    I was in the process of adding screws to the Athearn coupler boxes on the cars I plan on using during our up coming open house and I realize I need to order some..The only reason I am doing this project is because the club rule 15.1 under freight car operating rule 15 states "All cars use during public shows must have the coupler box held on by a screw yadda,yadda etc".Silly rule anyway.

    Tonight for supper I am going to have "mulligan stew" made with fresh frozen veggies with beef cubes with pan bread..

    I shall have a cup and look over the forum.

    Have a nice day all!

I told my wife that I need 12 more locomotives to fill the roundhouse she didn't agree.:cry: now all I have to do is get the basement done so my benchwoork can start.

    I finally get to use my snow blower today, very unusual for Northeast Indiana to wait this long to get a nice snowfall.

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    where the temp is 28 deg with a light dusting of snow. More to come toight. :cry:

    John - Franklin Mint made 3 seires in 1/43 scale, the 50's , and the musles cars of the 60's - 70's and some from the 1910 to 1920. I have the first two. There was about 12 cars in each seires. at 55 to 65 bucks each, well you know. Each car has over 100 parts to each, opening doors and hoods with detailed engines.

    Here is one of my favorite

    Good afternoon guys,

    After early church we went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Very good, complete with grits and sausage gravy. Mmmm.

    cedarcreekrr, Nice rooster of steamers, have you run them yet, or waiting for the layout to be completed. I have seen the MTH K4 at shows, They had it running at York in October, very nice. I have heard some of the old timers in HO say they would never buy one, but I think they are in the minority.

    Tom, Sounds like O gauge is not the only hobby that can get expensive. They are very nice, but I am too cheap to spend that much on cars, except maybe one that has some special meaning for me. That looks like a very nice HO layout, is that in your friends home or a club layout.

    Working on some layout project here, Jean is off to a baby shower for a grand niece so I have the day to my self. Building an office for my stock yard cattle dealer and more flat car loads.

    Cold, around freezing and cloudy here. More of the same with chances of snow for the rest of the week.

    Enjoy your trains.

    hey guys, just came back from frezzing weather w/ fluries while on a trip to Johnny's Toy's for their big railroading event. I tell you, it was awesome:D ! Also watched them launch rockets (Estes) and got some 3 inch EZ track peices which will help in parts of shortness, and a 9-inch snap track peice and some cork roadbed&balsa wood for the layout. Micro Sol was also obtained:cool: After that we went to Perkins for lunch and then headed home. And It's only 4:00!:D

    Happy R&Ring:thumb:

    Afternoon everyone! Not much going on here in the Mitten state. Flurries and it's 20 degrees out. So far only one train today on CSX, usually at least 3 on a sunday. Just paid for an ebay puchase, another autocarrier to add to the collection. Nice to know that I don't have to get up 4:15 am all this coming week due to layoff time. Apparently nobody likes our cars, imagine that..... Have a good one.....
