    This is an HO model, right?

    Someone give me a head's up if/when an N scale one gets moving.... I'd love to be involved.

    Had a little problem at the post office this morning(packaging), and a couple of other appointments today, didn't have time to get home and repack and get it back to send off.
    So its gonna leave tomorrow.Sorry.....

    Shamus....We'll let it tour Canada and the "colonies" first. When it comes back to me, I'll send it across the "Great Pond" to you for the European leg of its tour(Errol, Xaniel, Topo, and anyone else interested)

    Then "Down Under", if Woodie wants to join in.

    Val...PM me or Tin Goat with your address.

    MCL will...

    ...take a personal delivery from the JGL- perhaps via the Erie (Blake).

    The MCL connects- so bring it on!

    When the car flies over here to old Europe - count me in. :cool:

    I think it will use up some time until it has toured the USA and Canada. But then some day it will turn up here in Switzerland (perhaps sent from the UK - d'ya hear me Shamus?) :)

    Ok, now I have one more strong motivation to build up at least one decent bit of scenery, until the Gauge Boxcar arrives over here. :D :D :D

    Ralph's for fun!

    OK! 88's Gauge box car arrived today! Its a beaut! Good packing job too, by the way, 88. Any way. It took a tour of my layout. Tingoat is next on the list and will be receiving the car soon. After that it will go to whoever Tingoat decides to send it to. Get on the list!!!! Thanks for getting this started 88!

    Nice pictures Ralph. Looks good.
    I also like the locos.
    Nice to see you put the car to work. It had a lazy life on the Xmas layout.

    Are we going to leave the boxcar as it is when it arrives, or perhaps a hint of weathering before it's next leg of the journey.
