    :wave: OK, decals are done, here is the new loco Bachmann sent me to replace the Makato. I had to lighten the picture so the colors are not true. My road colors are pullman green and boxcar yellow but this is close enough I am not changing a thing. I removed the decal on the tender and replaced with mine and dullcoted the whole engine to remove the shine, that's it, close enough. This thing runs sweet and looks very nice. Probably needs a detail kit? It is a northern.

    This is a picture of my latest purchase. It is the Spectrum consolidation and it to runs real smooth.

    All and all I am real satisfied with my latest purchases of Bachmans and the replacements, I also recently got the 0-6-0 Dockside and the Plymouth switcher and they also run well. Some difference from the old days. It ain't brass but I am happy.
    :D Jim
