I've never seen one, either. Very bizarre but I like it.
"A lot of modellers out there who go to the train shows see these broken H0 stuff and go 'This is useless.' when in reality, it can still be used for modelling whether it's as a prop on your layout or a cool project to make something old new again."

Oh, 40 or more years ago, whilst reading up on PRR, I discovered part of their "standardization" included same boilers on L1s Mikados and K4s Pacifics. I filed that data away until, oh, 30 years ago, and decided I was going to build what Lionel should have with Lionel parts. I had several 675 boilers (supposedly K4 or K5...nobody is really sure...but it looked right), so I needed a chassis. Told my buddies I was going to find a Turbine chassis, drivers, rods, motor and e-unit, and that I was only going to pay ten bucks for it. They laughed. Until I went to a TCA local meet, and they had table sales in the first part of the meet..first table, 671 jackshaft two gear Turbine chassis, drivers, motor, e-unit, no shell, no lead or trail trucks...picked it up, tag said ten bucks..holding chassis tightly, I held it out and asked the seller if that was right...yes. Whipped a ten spot into his palm, ran it out and locked it in the boot of the vehicle. Then I went to a friend, retired areospace engineer/toolmaker/machinist.....he had all the equipment at home..he milled out the bottom of the cab and nose of the 675 to accept the 671 chassis. I had an old 675 boiler front with class lights broken off...but the PRR had them further back on the smokebox than Lionel did, so I mounted broken units on the smokebox. I think we made the pilot and steps to match PRR practice. Moved the whistle and bell, modified a 675 cylinder assembly (easy to find one with damaged "cowcatcher") and then painted and Champ decalled. Runs sweet....good use for all those bits, causes consternation amongst collectors when they see it.... Dave

Always. In have two original SC catalogs, one or two photocopies, but they are all different. Faber...probably. SC and SM, yes, Lobaugh, no. I think I have one Lobaugh freight car..they are too much money for me! Let me know. Thanks. Dave

Everything but the Lobaugh....but if you're scanning and sending via e-mail, I can print them here, save your printing costs, and shipping costs. I can ask some 0 scale buddies if they want the Lobaugh and send them via e-mail to them! Thanks! Dave
JNXT 7707: The Eagles will experience a wave of fan optimism, followed by the reality of next season. See: Dallas Cowboys to Learn More.

umpdan31: It all depends on who they hire, Jerry. If they hire someone like Buffalos offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who turned Josh Allen into a really good quarterback or KCs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, either one could get Wentz back on track.

JNXT 7707: It also depends on the talent on the field! To be fair, the Packers woke up big time last year when they changed coaches with largely the same players. And like the Eagles, they ditched a Super Bowl winning coach. Sometimes you just need a change!

JNXT 7707: The AFC is interesting because I have no dog in that fight. I'd love to see the Browns beat the Chiefs, just for the sheer spectacle of it. It's not as far-fetched as it sounds.

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: If that were to happen, they'd have to move the team back to Baltimore as the fans would completely burn down ALL of Cleveland.

Bull: there would most definitely be some covid violations in Cleveland if the Browns win. Wouldn't it be apropos for Cleveland if the Browns win and the fans can't celebrate?
