I have recently shown this loco in another post but want to put it in LOTW. A Tyco brown box Queensland Railways switcher. This loco runs well, being powered by an MU2 motor. Also in pretty good condition and just needs a front handrail and couplers. I believe that the Australian Tycos were only offered between 1970 to 75 and might have been a mix of American and Hong Kong MU2s and powertorques. Tony
My LOTW is Part 1 of a 3-part project, I have 2 more of these in progress - I wanted to get this one finished completely to test the drivetrain that will be used in the other 2 as well.
Fort Worth & Western #2015 "Butch Cassidy". An AHM SD-40 that has extra pickups added and a new motor. The FW&W is a local railroad here in my area of Texas, I usually see it in either Fort Worth or Cleburne.

I've been reworking sections of my layout and pulled one of my monster locomotives for testing. This is Rivarossi 2-6-6-6 that runs smooth and quiet. It doesn't fit with anything I do, but it was too cool to pass up.

umpdan31: JadeFog: i found a brand new in the box ConCor PRR mail car. Although the ones that I already have are all heavyweights with 6 wheel trucks, this one is a lightweight with 4 wheel trucks. I also picked up a few assorted couplers. Glad he was open again.

umpdan31: The mail car was 10 bucks. Not bad for a brand new car.
