    Pintle hitch

    The type of hitch mentioned earlier is a pintle hitch. My brother had one on his pickup truck and my nieghbor has one on a dump truk. You can buy one through zycon models (they have a website), I think it is made by custom finishing.

    Lonestar's are not out yet, but are coming soon.
    Coming Attractions

    Unless their site is really old, which could be, but I've never seen theirs anywhere.

    It would look great with a minor bit of detailing. I model on a budget and look for cheap finds all over. Its fun to see how realistic you can make models with a little work.

    Happy B-day! Now, you think we are going to let you get away with just pictures? Details!!!! Spill the beans!! I'm not an HO buff (that's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it) and so can't recognize these things by site.... Who makes the locos? New, used, ebay find? What? DCC, Sound? Neat stuffs. Did you buy them yourself (like I usually have to for myself) or was a certain significant other thoughtful enough to shower you with these gifts?

    Locos, Athearn, DCC ready, NEW like every other engine. I am going to see Bruce about them.

    I picked out a list of things I wanted. My Mommy and Daddy bought this stuff you saw for me. The wife got me other things. :)

    I love being an only child! sign1
