zeldatheswordsman: Yes, they are. I get them at Michael's for 79-99 cents (or over $1 for the DecoArt metallic paints) a 2oz bottle. Jan 19, 2017 21:20:35 GMT -5
pokemonprime: If I'm taking the simple route and ordering the parts I need for these cars from Ye Olde Huff n Puff directly, it's going to be $38 Jan 19, 2017 21:30:14 GMT -5
pokemonprime: That's over 10 times what I paint for all 3 cars Jan 19, 2017 21:30:25 GMT -5
pokemonprime: Such is life.... Jan 19, 2017 21:30:28 GMT -5
pokemonprime: I need to make a post here/at the TF looking for parts Jan 19, 2017 21:30:46 GMT -5
pokemonprime: Will do that once I buy roadbed.... Jan 19, 2017 21:30:54 GMT -5
zeldatheswordsman: You could have fit most of that into a single message Jan 19, 2017 23:07:51 GMT -5
zeldatheswordsman: Found a very good match for Athearn's streamlined observation car: ATSF 3197. The window arrangements match very closely - one side is even a complete match. Jan 20, 2017 4:52:06 GMT -5 *
zeldatheswordsman: Anyone here own one of Bachmann's ultradomes? Do they use special draft gear or just long-shank couplers? Jan 21, 2017 19:40:54 GMT -5 *
zeldatheswordsman: I rejoined the Bachmann forums to try and ask there. And was reminded of why I had left in the first place. There are some patronizing smegheads with loud mouths there. Jan 22, 2017 16:00:16 GMT -5
rdc1: (rofl) :D don't sugar coat it man, tell us how you really feel. I have to agree though. I only frequent the place every 1 to 3 years. Jan 22, 2017 18:08:39 GMT -5
burlington77: zeldatheswordsman...you must be a Red Dwarf fan. Jan 22, 2017 19:18:42 GMT -5
pokemonprime: Oddly enough, both Model Railroader and Model Railroad Craftsman ran articles focusing on Central Vermont wooden cabooses, just over a year apart Jan 22, 2017 19:57:06 GMT -5

rdc1: :| Jan 22, 2017 20:04:23 GMT -5
zeldatheswordsman: Well, I had some posts from people who didn't know the answer to that or to whether the ultradome can take 18" curves. They were civil, and so was I when I responded to them (and informed one of the 85' dome's cranks). But then someone else came in. Jan 22, 2017 20:06:02 GMT -5
zeldatheswordsman: Someone with the screen name WoundedBear. And they said this: "Don't any of your parents supervise your internet connections?". Not helpful in the least, just a patronizing bashing of everyone else in the thread. Jan 22, 2017 20:07:40 GMT -5
zeldatheswordsman: Yes, yes I am. Jan 22, 2017 20:08:13 GMT -5
rdc1: Yeah, there's no lack of people like that in the Bachmann group. Jan 22, 2017 20:17:34 GMT -5
pokemonprime: Here's a use for the Tyco Streamlined Caboose if you don't model the Pennsy. Apparently the ICG got a hold of a few ex-Pennsy cars http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=252301 Jan 22, 2017 21:16:04 GMT -5
