I saw this at Zientek today. Tested it out and it seems to runs smooth and the metal bits look nice and shiny. I'm NOT a steam guy, but he says it would have run into the 50's and I've got enough 40' boxcars to run a nice consist. Further, this is marked for Indiana Harbor Belt which puts it right in with my Chicago area short lines theme.
No price on it, but he says it's $25. Should I pick it up next time? anything to know in particular about this model of loco?

hmm, let's see. Calculating: Time from Niagara Falls to Chicago, find whatever "Zientec" is, introduce myself as "Karl", and if that fails, introduce myself as "Karl's friend", offer to pay $75.00 CASH and slip away out the back and speed back home. Oh darn it, today is Yoga day! Dang, always a day late and a dollar short.
umpdan31: I get it now. If the black Hills of South Dakota has a white crow, is his name Blackie? (Nothing racial intended. I'm talking about a bird. When I was young, we had a black Cocker Spaniel named Blackie.)

wks: Nothing racial here. The singer Clint Black is white and the singer Barry White was black. Just names.

JNXT 7707: We're into the 'heat wave'. This stuff will take your breath away.

mph: Jerry, we got a bad trade. It was only supposed to be 4 days of 100+ with one day having a high of 108. They took the 108 away but extended the 100+ days to at least 8.

JNXT 7707: Geez. Well, it is what it is I suppose, summer in TX. I was saying once you get past a certain temp, it was just , but I take that back. This is some serious heat.

JNXT 7707: C'mon down, TK! We'll set you outside in the morning, I'd say around 7:00 pm the meat will be falling off the bone with a nice crispy crust on the outside.
