Everyone in Chicagoland knows this car.

What's little known is that at the time it was filmed, that car is only 5 years old. 

They don’t make em like they used to, do they?

 

I just heard Dean Richards start to tell me that my old car is worth money as soon as you said that. I actually have sold a car to them too.

That's fantabulous. Before I grokked the reality of the lug pattern and so forth, it actually crossed my mind to plead that it not be on the original FWD underpinnings...

I've been obsessing over micro layouts lately. Its incredible to see how much can be packed into such a small space. You need to YouTubes "micro layout." You will be impressed. The problem lies in finding very small locomotives that run well.

This post is relevant to my interests.  I had some HO stuff when I was a kid and then when I worked in a large open-office place about 10 years ago, I had a little N-scale layout that ran around my desk and computer monitors to generate white noise.  That set is still in my attic.  I have threatened DW that when I retire I may build a little N layout.

Last weekend she took me to a local train show, and it didn't do anything to lessen my interest.  There is a lot of junk out there but there is some nice stuff, too.

In reply to Duke :

The great thing about micro layouts is you can get away wit ha simple loop. The rest comes from how well you do scenery and structures.

The dangerous thing is if you want real tight curves, much less that a 9.75 radius, you need to go small 4 to 6 wheeled locomotives. And the small N scale offerings HATE switches. You end up convincing yourself that this Bachmann 0-4-0, that has been around since the dawn of time, will work. It won't. Not without a lot of help.

 This site will waste the rest of your day. Sorry.

I have an N-Scale layout in the basement, but mine was fairly large. In some sort of mental fit I bought a Bachmann Santa Fe 4-8-4. What a pile of junk.

I did have a Pennsylvania Railroad 0-6-0 Switcher with a slope-deck tender and that never had any issues with switches. I can't remember the manufacturer though

The genetics of fur color expression are pretty neat. My wife also seems to like collecting cats like that.
