I know Muj and if you ask about hijacking his thread, he'd say "what thread?"...Go on, just don't holler at your buddy Jack while at the airport...."Hi Jack!"

Bernd-

Don't lose that glove--might prevent burns, even if it is clumsy to wear while soldering!

Yeah--we sure have hijacked Muj's thread--but he is a fine person, and I think that he realizes that hijacking is a way of life here.

When (NOT IF) you write up your resistance rig, post it into the "Aids to Modeling" department. It is less likely to get lost there, and sounds like it will be a very valuable reference.

Here are a couple of shots of Muj's GREAT WESTERN HO scale "Brass Betsy" from the late 1940's and early 50's. This 2-8-0 is all brass (duh!) and powered with a Lindsay motor which is seen at the rear of the cab. This one is a regular runner and Muj has another still in the box-to be completed.







The tender trucks are slightly less old Mantua, the original Central Valley FOX trucks decomposed due to Zamack death. #7 still runs nicely and has several hundred thousand miles on the chassis. As far as I know, there are no small consolidations in HO available now, at least old time types like this one. By the way, the boiler is solid brass!

Now, something different:




Muj's Texas & Tehuacana (Taw-wackony) caboose #327. This looks to be an ancient Silver Streak kit with equally ancient Central Valley FOX leaf spring trucks. The lettering? Muj HAND LETTERED this car and the logo and number with paint and brush! Whatta concept, today's modelers don't have a clue about such work. No, she ain't a locomotive but ancient cars will be shown here also. These photos are taken on Muj's HO/HOn3 layout which has the same track plan as the original Gorre & Daphetid built by another master long ago.

There are many more treasures to display in both HO and HOn3. Hope you like this so far.

Woodie
