Today i purchased a old style (2 motor) Bachmann 70 tonner for $20 though it has a pretty rough shell, it runs well and I am going to rebuild it. Once i get my camera working i will post pictures.
P.S. Thanks to the undenyable courtesy of Bernd the side frame issue has been solved, and i anxiously awiat their arrival.
(Edit) here it is with all useable parts and and unassembled, sorry my android will not let me imbed pictures.
An update on my previous post on the little layout I'm building, (they really grow on you!) It's more proto-freelance now too. (Sorry abuot photos, my computer is on the fritz again and my android won't let me imbed them
I went for a walk this morning to take a look around by the crossing by my house and then the gates dropped and the lights were flashing and all that wonderful stuff and so I guessed it was either a VIA or GEXR train coming through, so the locomotive was either going to be a F40 or a P42 (VIA) or GP38AC/SD40 lashup (GEXR) but instead it was an SD45-2T painted full southern pacific lettering! I thought I was seeing a ghost (a very lost one at that) where on earth did it come from? Sorry no pictures couldn't pick my jaw up in time
Here is my little pet project I've been working on. it's a layout to just "tide me over " until the 20X30 space in the next room over gets cleared out. It is a pretty basic setup, with a quarry (brown hill area at far right in overall shot) and some sort of factory (far left rear track) plus an engine terminal (BL2 and SW9 in fron center) behind that is a lumber yard (front right).
