Oh dear...  It's in the newer paint scheme, so I'm off the hook for the moment...

Heilige Schei├če!

...okay...  Now that I've caught my breath, I have to ask.  That scheme definitely looks post-1980 to me.  But that's OK.  I can paint and decal with the best of them.  But before I do, are there some earlier schemes under consideration?

It's VERY cool that you listen to us and give us what we need instead of a happy birthday car or another freakin' SP bay window caboose... ;D ;D ;D

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you...

Nice! I especially like that there are more than 2 numbers per road and that they have a die-cast underframe!!!

Will the coupler pockets on the HO versions accept #5 couplers?

Dave and Lee, how do you tell the post-80s from the pre-80s paint schemes?

If N scale had good SD40-2s, C30-7s, U30Cs, SD45s, SD40s, and SW10s; I'd be in N scale.

parties just fine, if you are buying the BBQ at Chris-n-Pitts...

Needless to say, Mr. Wallet is now confined to a rubber room...

Dave and Lee, how do you tell the post-80s from the pre-80s paint schemes?

The earlier schemes had "TT" and the words "TrailerTrain" spelled out.  The "TTX" logo shown dates from some time well after 1980 (1991?), if I'm not mistaken.

How's that Wendy's commercial for the chicken nuggets go.....  :o  sound of wheezing and sucking air to catch one's breathe......

I'm in for all six, but what else is new with the stuff he's putting out.  Good thing I'm deploying, I need the tax break to keep up with his offerings...   ;D ::)

Wait a minute, today's not the 13th....

Brian,

Not to hijack the thread, but if you want to run on the Juniata Division once more before you go, let me know.  I'm TDY next week but will be in the week after.  Good luck on the deployment; I'm sure it's old hat by now, but come back safe.

And yes, I may need another deployment myself to keep up with all the new wares!

Thanks Dave.  I will probably take you up on that, but I'll fly up to Omaha this time.  What's the closest airport to you?   ;D

Oh, I'm not leaving until July, so I have some time yet.
