    The boiler's PSI wasn't over the limit, just a mfg. error. Frankly, I like this engine better because of the tender (it looks cooler:mrgreen::thumb:)

    Yes it does, although I have DC at the moment. Union Pacific no. 618 is also a spectrum 2-8-0, like the one I returned, although this one doen't have the part that broke (which is good!):mrgreen:

    Buckeye,
    Check the bottom of the thingy the wheels are on. If it does not have them little rollers. Then, it is a dummy unit. And doing everything it is suppose to. :twisted:

    I well remember all the painful years I spent in the conservatory at Simpson College practicing etudes & solo's and listening to horrible recitals of my friends. In Iowa we call flower shops flower shops, or a botanical center or a greenhouse or an arboretum :mrgreen:

    Well, Buckeye, I hate to say this...But that number shows up as a " DUMMY ". With NO motors, no horn or bell. No fancy sound system or remote control. ( TMCC or PCS 2 or DCS ) , or what ever you call that stuff. It doesn't even have operating couplers. No lights.
    BUT....it does have WHEELS. :twisted:

    You mean the Chief was so cheap he sent me an engine without a motor!:eek: How am I going to pull long trains? And I sent him such a great engine for Christmas with all the bells and whistles.

    Chief - Sorry to hear about your dog.

    Buckeye - Sorry to hear about your new great engine from Chief. Does the one that Don got work? :cry:

    announce1 As it is getting near that time of the year for taxes, if anyone needs a tax deductions, any item (or cash) that is donated to our museum would be tax deductible as we are a 501c3. :rolleyes:

    Tom, where do we send a check for the museum? I might have a locomotive to donate after I get the string off the front coupler.

    Laz, I was hoping to get one of those, but I am afraid SWMBO would have my hide. She went to put up some of my son's toys from Christmas, when she opened his closet door, she found it completely full of my trains. Hope she doesn't check the daughter's closet next.

    Buckeye - the museum address is

    The Western Reserve Model Railroad Msueum
    7471 Unit L Tyler Blvd.
    Mentor, Ohio 44060

    If you are going to send a package, then it is best to send it to my house, as someone is always home to receive it. Email me if you need my address.

    thanks aussie

    I think the DUMMY is the guy with the engine. :wave: Watched The Shooter DVD tonight. Great but still not the Bourne [got that series too].

    Have a good night all.

    and on Jan 15th a D&D type movie based on the book Dragonlance Dragons of Autumn Twilight is being released to DVD... It's along the same lines as Lord of The Rings - but not as complicated :D :D It's an animated movie...

    Can't wait for Batman to be released - this is the Dark Knight - the way teh original movie should have been... And No -- no Prince music LOL

    Company came and went full of my spaghetti (didn't have enough sauce) and cookies (just right)! After some cards, I took them down and let them run the Thomas train and I ran the MTH - suggestion, be sure the MTH is turned way up on sound so you can hear it over the kids yelling about the Thomas!!!! LOL $400 set (RTR set plus the passenger cars) versus $80 set - winner is the $80 set! LOL

    Ngauger - good news on The Dark Knight! I like a lot of the movies that Tim Burton made, but in the long run those Batmans and all the ones up until The Beginning have really paled in many ways....

    Morning all,:mrgreen:
    Wow! I don't know what went wrong with ERNI? Screwed my link to the forum, after a couple of false starts the guys here have got me back on line (thanks).announce1
    Sorry about the Peke Chief, the unfortunate thing with pets is that they are with us for such a short while, I will not have another firstly because in this sheltered housing scheme they are not allowed and secondly I am too old and may pop-off leaving my little friend at the mercy the cold world.:evil:
    My house phone is playing up, at least I think so, but it could be caused by a gallon of Frederick Robinsons:razz: as it seems to be OK in the mornings.:thumb:
    Ran my puffer last night got in trouble with Da Manigemint.sign1

    Chief: I'm picking up what you're layin' down.

    Doug: Thought of you as I watched 'A Christmas Story' saw the trolleys pass the Christmas Tree stand.

    In-Laws are gone. Good visit! Bride wanted to invite friends over for dinner with the In-Laws last night. Simple dinner turned into dinner with the Roosevelts. Grandma's china, and the food had to stay aside until after 'the salad course' was cleared... :roll: By me.

    Now back to the trains.
