I didn't......thanks for the advice........... :|
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!

This might open a few possibilities as a kit, but not pleased with the "built-up."



I hope it comes in a new jewel case...  :trollface:

Speaking of trolling, I made this video last year when Walthers released the Northeastern caboose with its much-vaunted new jewel case:

Thats awsome... I purchased the interlocking tower and water tank as a single kit when I was 13... for $4 retail.
You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me

The roadhouse is (was?) a good kit...  I've seen them all over the place at shows.  Excellent kitbash fodder.  Reminds me a bit of the store Roger Perkins scratch built.

Other than that, yeah, nothing to see here.  Keep moving along please.

they are re-releasing a Southern Pacific depot! So what if it is the wrong color and the semifore is way out of scale, it should be removed if you model 1961 or later! Another run home for Walthers! Let's make it even better and put HO scale people on the dock! :scared:

Posted this over on Trainboard...

The station is actually a model of a Southern Pacific type 17 station.....specifically this one.

The only difference is that they shortened the freight house a little bit.

Dave,There's a lot of truth in that video that fits several manufacturers point of view concerning  N Scalers.
--------------------------
I remember buying that interlocker when it was sold by AHM Bachmann..

Its based on Revell's HO interlocking tower from the late 50s..

Even through the interlocker is a old model I still think its a classic and I may even buy one.

I thought that looked like an Espee design.  It makes the selection of colors all the more sickening.

BTW - your link is broken.
