    Well folks, needless to say I am happier than a speckeled pup with a milk bone, I bought it off of ebay, it is an 80 Ton 3 truck Bachman (Spectrum) it came with 3 log cars and a bobber caboose. I havent had a chance to check it out as I have no track (ARRGH) but it looks like it has never seen any use at all.

    If all goes well, benchwork should start right after the 1st of the year..I will keep all of you posted.


    Now to go and drool a few more minutes............

    Wow, I've been modeling for 26 years, and *I* don't even have one of those yet!

    Congratulations on a great start, you'll love that Shay.

    Thanks guys, well I for some reason cannot get my pics to load, even when I take them to photo delux and try to shrink then to less than 68.kb (which it says all my pics are 98.3kb, no matter how small I make them) If I can fugure it out I will be more than happy to share them. In addition when I got home today the mail man had delivered my second box of stuff..........more cars and two diesel engines that were in the deal, I will be posting the diesels up to the want ads for trade or sale.

    Wow, that's great. I'm afraid to even look at anything on e-bay for fear it would kill my meager bank account.
