I know of a certain hobby shop in Victoria that will have a TON of Union Pacific power for sale shortly. I am testing and servicing it now. Canada is not a huge UP territory, as you can imagine. Stay tuned.
Well, at the risk of spamming or soliciting here, I'll tell you all. A gentleman here in Victoria had a plan to build a model of the Cheyenne yard. He admired it so much, he spent years researching and collecting info. and then models. He had some beautiful display cabinets made to feature all his locos, steam and diesel. Recently, he decided to start work on the locos and rolling stock he'd amassed over the years, from train shows and Ebay. This was when he found that his vision had gone so bad, no amount of magnification seemed to help. He couldn't see his models! But, enough of the sad stuff. Here's a sample. Kato, Atlas, Spectrum, Stewart, Athearn, Proto 1000, Proto 2000, Rivarossi (yes, a Big Boy and a Challenger, both red box.) Many have little or no run time.
I could be wrong, but I'm guessing the reason I can't upload to Photobucket is, I'm using good old Windows 10!! Anyone who is using this OS knows it is still in BETA. First, I found that I couldn't send pictures in an email. I've tried twice to upload to Photobucket, but the files can't be found. Grrr! So my only other option is to post all the pics of this stuff over THERE. Where, you ask, is THERE? TCF, of course. Otherwise, all this will have to be done by The Railhead on his FB page. I'll be talking to David on Saturday, so I'll let him know I'm a failure at the technology thingy. Evan
Nope Directly from my PC. It was a gradual thing. At first, emails with attached photos would hang in the outbox for a day or so. Then, a week. Then, they would not go at all. I tried sending some to HO Seeker, early on . All he received were files that wouldn't open. I recall sending to someone else, and all they got were place holders.

yardmaster54: A map of WV from the 50's & 60's, must of had 2 roads. One going north and south and one going east & west.

JNXT 7707: Living in DFW, I'd pay money to live in a state with just 2 roads!

yardmaster54: Jerry when you lived in WV did you ever visit the Cass scenic railroad?

JNXT 7707: Yes I did, YM. Rode it many times, strting as a kid back in the 60s all the way up to when I took my future bride on it in 2007. I am hoping to ride it again in the fall of 2020 if all goes to plan! Have you ever rode it?

mph: I've heard from an anonymous high-ranking government official that we should expect a Flamingo sighting today!

oldtimer52: Oh goodie. I just got a recipe for a garlic and butter roasted, stuffed flamingo. Just in time for Thanksgiving.

JNXT 7707: Mmmmm....sign me up for that, OT!

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: But you'll have to substitute a duck for the flamingo, unless you live out a few inches further than the long arm of the law (at least here in the States).

wks: I believe eating flamingo meat would be sacrilege at least on this forum.

JNXT 7707: The prohibition has historically been waived for Thanksgiving

rbturner: Just sitting here. Lost control of the clicker somehow. Watching Hallmark movie #3,528. Someone shoot me now. Someone please post some train stuff.

JNXT 7707: Has the couple had their breakup yet?
Nov 19, 2019 13:30:30 GMT -5
The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: That sounds like dangerous and painful territory, Randy. I'll know your pain at Thanksgiving when the in-laws' TVs don't change from the Hallmark channel.

yardmaster54: No I have not Jerry. I hope to some day though.

JNXT 7707: If you go, take the train all the way up to the top of Bald Knob. In the fall, the colors are incredible. I think it was around the first week of October when I was last there - of course the leaves peak at different times.
Nov 19, 2019 18:57:31 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: Let's see...looking at the time, Randy must be on Hallmark Movie #3,534
