    :wave: Saw Chucks' post on How are we tonight ? :D Busy ! Boy there was a lot of stuff on the other forum tonight. I think I'm getting caught up ! ON fumes, did you guys notice the guy that says, I think, Paul the painter, at the bottom he says " the Fumes Are getting to me"! I like that one ! :D Gill, that's a bran new scooter ! Looks really neat ! Are you riding it yet ? :D You'll save money all winter on gas riding it ! :D Anyway, I'm glad my wife doesn't need surgery. Just therapy. I haven't even gotten the new toilet yet ! Chuck: tell us more about the train & zw you found by the road ! Wow, what a find. I just bought another ZW, back in July & paid almost 200 for it. How much work did it need ? Be back, John
  3. John, you don't have a toilet? Now there's a pun.

    Well, I was driving down the street in Cleveland, and saw a box for
    trash on the treelawn. Asked the owner How much. He said take it.
    Junk. 0 gauge track sticking out. Got it home. Heavy. Inside a dirty ZW
    and track. Also, a # 671 with Tender. a two dome tank car, an
    operating cattle car with platform, two gondola cars, 4 UCS tracks,
    and an old Z transformer with the 4 dials.
    Cleaned it all up. Sold the Z for 50 bucks. All runs great.

    No toilet yet?

    I bet the that walk to the Towle Head Mart gets longer with each trip:(

    I bought it in July. I put some bad gas in it and had a heck of a time with it. Also The battery is dead and I think I blew that up.:eek:

    It is a hard tail but runs fast.

    Anyone catch Antiques road show this week? I saw it tonight, a guy had a Marklin #2 gauge live steam train set with two extra cars, got it at an attic clean out helping his friend.

    Worth a mint...megga tin plate and how!

    Also of interest to me, a fellow found an 1853 cannon in his back yard, some guy had an indian beaded out fit worth a bunch and a lady had a hand made lariett??? lasso, made buy a founder of the Mormon church.

    I love that show and always watch for CW swords and guns, flint locks and cowboy guns, trains and Indian items, ect.

    Oh, I thought it was a ZW, but you even got the cars, wow. Sounds like an original set. I was wondering if you got the cars too. Oh, Gill, did you get some work done on the layout so you could post pics?

    I got a ZW, which I kept, and also got a Z,

    which I sold for 50 bucks.
