    I havent been able to do any bench work but I have been stocking up on engines and cabooses.

    I have a few freight cars and 6 nice old hoppers.

    I would have to make an inventory of the engines to know what I have but I have more now than I do O gauge. Cheap is the watchword, mabay enexpensive is a better word as they won't see much use.

    I have an older Mantua General I am going to paint and use as a logging rod engine.

    I saw one one line used by an Alabama lumber co.

    Sweet:thumb: Looks like one of NorthWest Shortline's old "Spartan series" from the late 70s early 80s.

    I got a Backman F 7 abd a cheap caboose on ebay that came today.

    It was nicely repainted by some one in ..what else? C&O livery.

    I am plased with it as I have a dummy painted just like it on the way also.



    This caboose is pretty poor work.

    The engine is over painted.

    Some dull coat under gloos coat will pert them up a litte.

    I appreciate you comments on my posts.
