Cool. Yeah, Bob. When I showed @Ed Kapuscinski your bag of leaves he said "ooh. That's the good stuff."

I would try for at least a minimum of a PRR steam facility. A water tank at least.
And I almost forgot that I've got a few cars from Lee.  I have to get those locked up as they always want to paint speed lettering on everything.

AHAHAHAH no.
I know we complain about there not being enough n scale steam, but what we don't have a lot of electrics that don't begin with the letters "GG."

Yes we do. Still, I think the major gap is the P5.

I want him to too.

The only problem with catenary is photography. There's always a pole exactly where you don't want one.

Oh, also, it's hard.
