    My friend came over today with a huge computer box and said merry Christmas. The box was full of HO scale stuff. He is switching to N and gave the stuff to me. There is alot of junk (but model train junk is good junk) and some real nice stuff. There are many passenger cars. Here are some Pics just to show why I was so suprissed. Noe real message here, just thought I would brag. The keyboard boxes in one pic are all FULL of cars and locos.

    I know,.... he is a good friend!:mrgreen: the cars will be divided, some will get upgraded, some are ready to run, and some and a loco will go to my uncle for his slotcar/HO model railroad.

    That's great that he didn't expect anything from you- a true friend. There are some nice stuff in those boxes, enjoy!

    We are very good friends. We three years ogp taking highschool placement tests. He saw mr reading MR and said, Hmmmm, you like model trains too?

    But I do think I am obligated to get him something now, possibly for his new N scale layout. I will post pics of it when he begins.

    SCORE!!!:thumb:

    It would be nice to get him a little something, even though he doesn't expect it. Sounds like a nice fella.
