    Good Lord, that's a treasure trove of rolling stock!

    That's a great "Oh yeah!, I forgot!!" moment.

    Better than finding 20 bucks in a coat pocket.

    I wish I would get 25lb presents like that more often.:mrgreen: "hint, hint, to anyone who might read this and want to get me something" :thumb: Looks like a good haul. Personally I would have a hard time forgetting about an order like that. If I spent that kind of money on that much stuff I would be checking the tracking number almost daily to see where it is at.

    Man! What a nice 25lb box to get! And I thought I had a lot of railroad stuff! Of course, I got almost all of stuff on e-bay. My wife and I went to Hobby Lobby last Friday, and I wasn't too impressed. Later, we went to a hobby shop that was going to quit selling trains. We spent over $200.00 and got about $500.00 worth of stuff. All of it new. We picked up a new, complete NYC passenger train that is probably worth about $200.00 or more for only $100.00.

    Trucklover, who is the builder of that UP gondola I see? Not because of it having UP on it but because of the type of car it is. I would love to find me a whole set of these in lease name's as well as KCS and the smooth rib side ones with RailGon on them for a prototype train I would like to build. Look's like Christmas came early for you! Those are some sharp lookin' item's in that delivery.:thumb: Now, next time you see your UPS driver, tell him to bring me a box full like that! sign1
