    Looks like you'll be busy for quite some time. Are all the boxes full on the sides of the work bench? Glad to see I'm not the only one with a million projects!

    reply boxs

    The boxes closest to the workbench (right side) are just stored locomotives. The second shelf out are more cars than locos. You can see the Trainminature yellow boxes. Their are some Walters, Accurail, and Branchline cars.

    Pennsy Hippos take center stage on the work bench. Touch up and tune up is awaiting these decapods.

    I guess it's true what they say: "A clean workbench is the sign of a sick mind!"

    Nice engines! :thumb:

    Here is the Genoa 4-4-0. A Pogher AHM loco.

    ***This is a second generation Pocher locomotive. It does not have the open frame motor. I think you will notice something odd about this engine. The front pilot is more modern than the original. I replaced it with a Reno drive frame.The pilot was completely gone. This was the only problum. This is a very nice runing locomotive.

    Here is the J.W. Boker a Pocher AHM

    ***This is a second generation Pocher locomotive. Without the open frame motor. With this loco I had more problums. The body was broken, and replaced with one without the name. I relpaced a missing compressor. The pilot was broken and replaced. The drive shaft was missing. I made one from metal tubing screws and nuts. I am not done with this as it is ruff running at this time.

    Busy bench again

    After return from a train show last saturday my bench is a little crowed again. I had a good day at the show and aquired some new locos. They are used but new to me.
    center front is a Walters H10-44 Pennsy, behind that is two LLP2000 GP-9 phase 3 locos in Pennsy. Behind them is a LLP2000 SD9 and LLP200 GP-7 in Pennsy. to the right is a Fleischmann PRR box car and right of that a Walters snow blower. Somewhere in the Jumble is a MDC box cab diesel unpainted. A lionel Pacific 0635LTS. And some other cars. It was a good show for me.
