    Just got word that a train would be passing by the tunnel that had some interesting cars. (Actually I spent a good portion of the evening running this train around the layout and watching it pass various features on the layout. Kind of fun to see the trains pass by what you have been working on.)

    A great spot for a run-by, Tom, :thumb: and as usual, a nice selection of motive power and rolling stock.
    I picked up some L&NE lettering, including the fried egg, and a Tichy USRA singlesheathed boxcar, but the "egg" is too big to fit between the bracing on the carside. I'll letter the car for something else, and keep my eye on the "used" table at the LHS. I do have a particular car in mind. ;)

    Thanks guys!

    That is a straight out of the box IHC 0-8-0 Switcher. No modifcations. The only thing I did was add the number to the sand dome and the back of the tender. I also added the engineer. And I weathered it.

    I made a mistake No. 135 is not the one I changed the number. 135 is the number it came with. I have a second one that I changed from 135 to 132.

    Fantastic Tom!! I would love to see a thread just on your layout - I don't think I've ever seen the whole thing, but from what I have seen it must be fantastic. :thumb:
