The 2-8-0 runs and sounds great.  You are making great progress. 

Have you considered 3D printing the missing parts you need?

I have seen many different things that people can do with O scale. One of the pics someone posted is the train running around the ceiling. My doctor does that in his living room at his house. I like the idea of 2 rail as opposed to 3 rail because 3 rail is not my thing. Saying that I have seen some very well detailed modules done in 3 rail O scale. Whatever you choose don't discount ideas from the 3 rail folks. Look at everything. I wish you luck.

Ed's got a Strasburg boner. Prolly why Dr. Hotballz asked him to strip before he repainted the tenders shell. :trollface: :trollface: :trollface:

I knew I should've deleted that eBay alert. I have an N scale layout to build...

But how can you pass up a brass NC caboose (the decaling is wrong)?

Here's another pic along side the 1187. After more research, I removed the paint I had applied over the striping. However, it reminded me of how wrong ALL of the lettering on the tender is (the PRR is way bigger than it should be), but the stripes are back for now.

Yay!  Maybe not prototypical, but better.

Right?  Let's not lose track of of how great that caboose hop is.  (cabin car hop?)  I'd be happy just spending an afternoon running those two back and forth on that timesaver that whoever-it-is regularly brings to Timmonium.

That would be BSME. I sold some of their members a ring of 66" centerline curve module blanks, autumn before the pandemic. There hasn't been a real Timonium show since then, but I expect eventually that timesaver will be a module set in larger layout at the shows when they return.

That means a lot to me!

I'm not sure where it's all going, but the journey so far has been fun.

If they do end up getting a modular layout going, I might bring some of my own O2R equipment, and maybe consider building a module.
