Got the Daylight a few months back and love it. 3985 was my second most recent purchase, being some time mid-'07.

These are the five latest units on my roster. The first two units are new athearns that I added a few parts to, an SD40T-2 and a GP40X respectivly. The third unit was an old athearn SD9 that I picked up at a swap meet, I hacked it down and created a TEBUC6. The fourth unit is a recently compleated GP39M with sound and the last unit was an old F45 that also came from a swap meet. The first three units still need to be finished up and weathered. The last three units are sporting paintwork that I applied, it's not great but it is okay. Brace yourself for some lousy pictures!

Pioneer Zephyr from Concor in February and I'm surprised that it runs good on my layout! rolleyes.gif

Just got Kato GS4 SP Daylight steam loco and 3 sets of articulated cars. (Sorry, no pics wacko.gif ) The steam engine is back at Kato due to problems with front wheel pilot. I didn't get the 10 cars set because I already have 7 SP Daylight cars from Concor. Also have this...............30 Bethgon hopper cars

Yes, they are all there 27 in the picture and added 3 more to make it 30. I ran a trivia contest at the Mophouse forum to ask the members to guess how many were on that train. tongue.gif tongue.gif
It would be nice if I had a bigger room for a layout so I can run a 100 car coal train. tongue.gif tongue.gif

Picked this Aristo-Craft FA-1 up a few weeks ago:

Essentially stock, except for having had the typical Aristo FA bolster height modification taken care of yesterday.

Not a prototypical scheme, but the price was right, and it looks good. Figured it was a start - something to help get out of HO. Just couldn't get the knack of working in that size:

About the only half-successful modification I ever did. Ex-NYC SDP40, Athearn.
