Look what I got: Walthers GP60

This is a great model, but I have to say at $150 it is a little pricey. With the exception of the horn, the detail parts look good.

Very nice looking locomotive.  One thing I do not like though is when manufacturers run patched locomotives, yet they are "out of the paint shop" clean.  Though seeing your previous photos, I'm sure you will make it look like it should  :D

Wow.

So they actually made changes to the model... more than just a new box.

From the older release?  Yes, ditch lights work too.

One for Hinshaw Valley?

Yep, to work the lower level spur to H. Gary Distributing.

HO. You can tell by looking at the little red circle with HO in it next to the topic title.


Hmm... I thought it was
Z scale...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

Love my N scale (Lifelike) versions too. Great relief detail, paint and running qualities.
