My latest project, is a Class B climax with both trucks powered, and Walchester valve gear, loosely based on the biggest class B ever made, 60 tons. Although the real 60 tonner didn't have the Northwest package, (all weather cab, and such) mine dose, mostly for simplicity. It is a long way from finished at this point I still gotta figure out the electrical pickup, witch is complicated with the new brass frame.

No modeling for me again this week; the track plan gallery I posted last week has generated a flurry of requests for planning help; between that and the impending holidays, I don't know if I'll be picking up an X-Acto until 2011.

Scary good Richie.................
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Richie, when you're done with all of your epic bashing, I for one would be really interested in seeing a shot of the whole family of great locos you've assembled.

Richie, got any good ideas on how to turn a Bachmann 2 wheel Commonwealth trailing truck into a Delta trailing truck?  Love watching your work.

Ordered a new Digitrax DCC setup from FRTS. Chuck told me it was one hell of a deal at 2x MSRP, so I hurried up and got it before the price went up. Nothing else new to report from the  BLVR.

Everybody here have a happy holiday!
