    Well, Today was the day for our annual local trainshow....lots of good stuff there but the event was poorly attended as compared to previous years. The normal crowd is around 1500 but this year only just slightly over 500.:( Needless to say it was a "buyer's market" this time. The Robber Barron spent $60...but look what he got!:eek: :D

    $92.00 worth of detail parts
    6 MDC Old Time Tankers...Frames will be used for log cars
    A Bachman On30 Porter NIB
    A Builders In Scale Mine Hoist Kit.

    Ahhhhhhh! Yes!:D The Robber Barron will sleep well tonight!!!!!
    :D :p :D :p :D :p :D

    Lookin' at the amount of loot you got away with, The emphasis should probably be on "robber", and you'll sleep well until they come for you!!:D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Nice work! There's a "show" tomorrow near here, and I hope I can do half as well as you did!

    Well done Vic, but I would sleep with one eye open on the door, just in case.
