    That can be an up hill fight....a former county service rep told me that VA makes it hard so that people will just give up. Thats when I decided to fight the 3rd round.....worked too. Rating went to 70% cause VA screwed up and send me for testing at a civilian OT, they called me 3 days later and said "don't go to work, if you are unemployed don't look for work" we are putting you on unemployability.

    Good luck with VA and keep fighting em.:thumb:

    Yeah it sure is a beauty,I just have decided to go all diesel for now so I'm selling/trading it.

    Plus need to get a DCC system so I can get off DC.

    What I lack in quantity I make up for in quality:thumb:.

    I am still fighting, and I will not give up. I need 10% more to get that unemployability. I'm now at 60% with multi Problems, with SSDI I am 100% just one, and it's a service connected disability also. I have Fluid on the Brain, a General anxiety, and arthritis from the neck down cause of the fluid .

    No I'm not,but if I want to collect steam DM&IR I'd have to collect brass and I can't afford that yet.

    There's a brass DM&IR Yellowstone on E-Bay right now,it's at over $1100 with 6 days left!

    I happen to have the DM&IR Spectrum 2-10-2 along with two hand painted passenger cars,it's very nice.

    On a side note,all that track in the foreground is now Freeway,and that building on the right which I believe was the Soo station is gone now:cry:.

    Progress stinks sometimes,eh?

    Forgot about this one.The cars had to be hand painted and decaled because there are no factory painted DM&IR passenger cars of course.

    Roster Odd Items

    I enjoyed looking over the great rosters, and it is true (studies show) that you can never have too many locomotives! I will not include the whole list, around 75, I think, but the odd ones may be of interest.
    Oldest is an F-3 by Varney, built from the kit around 50 years ago, still in use.
    Greatest challenge to build, a three truck Shay done exactly according to the MDC instructions, no gear, motor, or electrical modifications, (Yes, it does work).
    Most unique, a PRR Lima Transfer, built with parts from three locos, and assorted odd bits. Looks very much like the original photo and looks good pulling a coal drag up a grade.
    An SP 0-8-0 switcher built from an MDC 2-8-0 kit; the wheels seem oversize for a switcher, but SP did a lot of 2-8-0 to 0-8-0 conversions.
    How about a Baldwin switcher paired with a matching yard slug built from a old chassis, scratch built shell, and bits and pieces? A few railroads did this and result looks more interesting than the usual cow-calf. Dave :D
