    I just got back from the LHS in Alexandria (not so local). I made out like a fat rat! I got 2 Athearn RS3's for $30 and 2 Athearn F7A's for $40. That's like half price on all of them.

    They were cheap as that because they were missing parts. One of the F7's was missing the detail parts, couplers and pocket covers and both of the RS3's were missing drive line parts and one has several cracked gears. Nothing I can't fix.

    Here are the roadnames and schemes:
    F7A Southern Pacific (Daylight)
    F7A Southern Pacific (gray-red Bloody Nose)
    RS3 Santa Fe (blue-yellow)
    RS3 Southern Pacific (Black Widow)
