    The Boley low boys are not that great out of the package, but you ought to see the model that Eli bashed from a Boley low boy and a Peterbilt tractor. It is on display in the glass case at Hobby Warehouse in the train dept.

    Hey Trucklover, it sounds like you got alot of trucks comming for you! Since you seem to be into getting trucks out the wazzoo, may I sugest trying to make an Old Dominion truck? Microscale makes them, although they are currently backorder only. Here's the link:

    I dont think there is anybody on here who would dissagree with me when I say in the MRRing dept. you have to be one of the luckiest people on the Guage! I take it Chhristmas money is helping out alot with those HUGE purchases. I cant belive the lumber yard pays that good, or I might be getting a new job soon.:mrgreen: Unless that is you finally have your priorities in line and are spending your entire paychecks on trains.
