Well it came a little early(from the OKC train show) but I got two NW-2's in Santa Fe and the 5 "camp cars" in On30. The camp cars should look good behind the Climax.

Lotsa stuff this year, mostly via Chulvis. First delivery was a Walthers 0-8-0, then yesterday, four Atlas billboard reefers, CGW, Stokely, White Rock, and Meeters Sauerkraut, along with two city water towers from Walthers and an icing platform from Bar Mills. Still to come, three DeLuxe Innovations PRR boxcars.

And that's just the model railroad stuff... 8)

Santa brought me back to N scale ;D

I'm in the process of collecting N scale again. So far this month Santa has brought me Kato CB&Q NW2, Spectrum R.I. 2-8-0 and 33 Micro Trains cars.

Now Santa says to get a layout built ;D ;D ;D ;D

Well, if my avatar does not give it away, I am a huge Rock Island fan. See the Introductions thread for more info. Anyway, since the Rock doesn't exist anymore, I have followed the railroad in Iowa that has taken over a lot of the Rock Island's former trackage, the Iowa Interstate (IAIS). There aren't a lot of offerings in N scale for the IAIS, so I had a GP38 done by a friend on a yahoo group. Behold this beauty!
I love that herald on the nose.



Several years ago, I won an SW1200 in FEC livery. Well, since I have no intentions of modeling Florida, that is being shipped off to the same guy who will transform it into IAIS' former #250, which just recently was sold to one of the big ethanol plants in Iowa. I hope to have that back by Spring.

We exchange "family" gifts on Christmas eve (leaving Christmas morning to the big jolly guy).

Nothing on my train "list" but train stuff I still like:  an Athearn CSX auto-rack (from my younger son) and a "holiday" box car (from my older son).  I've been secretly desiring the CSX auto-racks to add to my Atlas ones.  I'm always in favor of the occasional "cute" holiday or special car so both were great.  I enjoy fun trains.

Only issue was that the wheels on the middle truck of the Athearn autorack rubbed on the body--the car "dragged" down the track, squeaking and groaning.  Also, one of the wheel sets on that truck was "wobbly."  Typical Athearn.  No problem.  Swapped out the wheel and then fashioned a washer from some plastic tubing to increase the height between the truck and car body.  Now works fine.

My other gift, the BIG gift, from my far superior half, was a low f-stop zoom lens for my DSLR.  I hopefully can now photograph my boys gymnastics meets (in crappy low light gym conditions).  All in all, a wonderful set of gifts, with a wonderful church service earlier tonight.  Now just waiting for the boys to fall asleep so that Santa can drop off gifts.
