    Buckeye, That GP30 has pretty good sound for a dummy.

  3. Nice B&O Buckeye
  4. But it still doesn't pull worth a darn.:mrgreen:

    BTW, the sound is Lionel RS 5.0 in the lead GP30. It is awesome. :thumb: The squeal is the Hot Box Reefer in front of the caboose.

    Here is a video that really shows the smoke from the reefer: Video of On Fire - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

    Buckeye, I have one of those hot box reefers that I bought on sale, but haven't taken it out of the box yet. ERR has a unit that lets you turn it on and off at will via TMCC, did you convert yours or is it stock? Sure looks good. Smokes more than the diesel.

    Buckeye: Nice new video and I remember that 2nd video too!

    John B - that addition set you ordered uses a manual switch, I think? Just FYI.

    Doug, take some pics and let us know how it's going, sounds like a really cool project to me. Doug, I sent you an email too.

    Ozzy - there is a new flick out called Alien Vs. Predator: Reqeuem I think? AVP2 is supposed to be really good. AVP was really a let down, so I hope so. We went and saw I AM LEGEND instead, which was pretty great, but no surprises in the story really. This is the 3rd movie version of this movie since I was a kid. The first version, The Last Man on Earth was closest to the book and also starred Vincent Price, a real hero of my childhood. Will Smith was really good and the ending was good and fit the story.

    I never saw I, Robot -- that was a great book, but it was short stories and I don't know which one they based the movie on...

    Evening all!

    Buckeye - you didn't expect anything from the Chief to pull well did you? I thought the bad bearing sound was coming from the GP30 the Chief sent :twisted:

    Beautiful day here. High 50's. Worked outside mulching and mowing up leaves that Buckeye says I do not have. Also took down about half the outside Christmas decorations/lights. I will take down the other half after New Years Day.

    No big NYE plans here. Just a family dinner and then managing the kids to make sure they get home safely from their parties. She-who-is-sixteen is the most worrisome of the pair :cry:wall1

    Cowboys really stunk it up today. A real playoff contender might lose an unimportant game - but what the Cowboys did today was pathetic.

    Charlie Wilson's War is a great movie. One of the best I have seen in recent years. Very entertaining all the way to the end. Interesting ending statement from Charlie Wilson at the conclusion.

    Have a great evening all!

    Buckeye, that was a Cheesy video. Sorry, could not resist. Our buddy CSXect did not deserve the rib. We all knew what he ment. Raining still. 1.5" earlier and water flowing over the spillway and rising. May go out of the bank at the road. Fish were breaking at the top while I was there just a dark. Temps were still high then. About bed time for me.

    Did well with the wiring today. Completed 5 spurs with independent switch control at control panel. Check signal strength on DCS comes up all 9's. I'm happy with it so far.

    Looks like tomorrow will be a TV day. Chris has too much money, he decided he wanted a 26" LCD for his room. So he found one with combination DVD player. So get to mount the TV's (1 in bar, 1 in his room).

    Hopefully will be able to do more wiring tomorrow. With the new 15 minute resolution that should make a BIG difference.

    If your going on tomorrow night, "Just watch for the crazies"

    Happy New Year

    Buckeye: Great video! I'm not sure what all the fuss is about...That new engine from the Chief is really quiet! :rofl:

  16. Good Morning..................

    Morning all from a beautiful NC blue sky with 1.6" of rain yesterday. Thank you Jesus. :thumb: Hope all are well. Best wishes to all for 08. More trains and money for all. :mrgreen: Meetings for town already stacking up this AM. wall1 Off to cook red hots and grits. Youngest showed her behind this weekend. Hurt her Mom's feelings real bad. I was up early having a Daddy to Daughter conversation with her "machine". She would not answer it. DR. John would have stuffed cotton in his ears. Sometimes that is necesary to get their attention. She had better make it right real soon. If SIL hears it, I am sure he will be on her case too. He was real upset too. Grown kids acting 5. Wants to be miss rich big shot. As my Dad would have said, "She is getting to big for her britches." OH well. Have a good one.

    BTW: hope none of you eat Chineese for New Years. Folks in MA do. !!!!!!
