    You must subscribe to the theory that "a guy can never have to many loco's".

    WOW, I wish I had that many locos!!!!!

    Cool pics. Might I suggest also setting the camera on something to make them even clearer, that is what I do for most of my pics and have great results. Although, those last couple of pics are really good.

    BTW, that folded container on that well-car looks cool. I might have to start doing those cause I have already spent close to $200.00 on containers alone:eek: :eek:

    I count 25 locos on his shelves, at least.. Sounds about the right size collection for someone who should join Locoholics Anonymous.. sign1

    And the ones from runcooper's father-in-law's estate that I bought (about 40)
    and yes, I do believe I belong to LA, and CEBA (compulsive engine buyers anon)
    But the wife put a hold on my buying spree until all this comes in, she says "we dont wanna kill the postman".

    My lhs cant keep up with my demand for plows and nathan 5 chime horns. The mu hoses and air hoses I make myself from different size thread. I use super glue on a workboard I have and run the thread through it, usually 6' strands, and let it dry. Then cut it down to 1.5" pieces to work with. I found it easier to do this than drill holes and work the ones from the lhs in. Then i use super glue to attach them to the loco and trim it down and paint the ends silver to represent the coupling.

    I see he has added more to the page recently, especially in N and O scales. I like them better than bought ones because theres more detail to these.
