Well Mike,
that's an interesting question about how many more locomotives does anyone really need. I've come to the conclusion that since there is no more room for any more locomotives in the engine house, I maybe shouldn't get any more.

Well it appears as tho thy round house runneth over.   Ya got loco's parked coming out the wazoo.  !!!!!!!!!

Looks like you need to expand your round house out to the left by adding a shelf side extension and a bunch of parking tracks.  You could also work an ash pit into the whole scene. After all it looks like you have a turntable and that allows the parking tracks spread around.

I just joined and saw the string on the 2-4-4-2.
I have a Gem Models brass "Skookum" model that's been in storage for 15-18 years (can't remember where I got it, though I think it was in San Diego when I lived there back in the early 70's. Now that I am retired I am unpacking all my brass collection and updating them for a new layout. My 2-4-4-2 ran well so I tuned it it and converted it to DCC/Sound, added lighting and glazing and did some touch up ..... runs and sounds fantastic....a beautiful loco that fun to watch & listen to.

Can't seem to upload photo ?? Oh well, will learn
Cheers, Mike

Mike-

Have you looked at the second and third "stickie" topic in the "General" section?

Hi John; I just joined Free Rails and discovered your string about the 2-4-4-2. I recently retired and in the process of getting out of the arm chair and unpacking about 20 years of collecting motive power and rolling stock for my North Pine RR logging & mining branchline. Been busy getting my older brass collection up and running and converted to DCC/Sound .... 8 done and about 14 more to go......its been a process but fantastic to listen and watch! I just got my Gem Models brass 2-4-4-2 loco on the rails after a tune up or replacement, I've installed DCC and sound, lighting and glazing....no layout yet (just bought a lot, so house to follow later next year) but have test module to run on. Tried uploading photos but doing something wrong .... A photo of it is in the forefront along with a 90 T shay and a 3 truck climax recently done in my profile photo that I did get uploaded. Looking forward to the postings and learning from all the chaps ...
cheers, Mike

Si, a Bachmann On30 2-4-4-2 "perverted" into 35n2. I don't run her any more but she's a "keeper".

Interesting subject , having acquired a AKANE 2-4-4-2 a few years ago, downside was I then had to acquire a few HO
cars to go with it. It was an engine I had always wanted from the mid / late 1960s, when they came out.

Still runs like a top though, after all these years. Need to construct a HO layout for it.

TOP BASHING ol' bean !!

She's a CORKER !

I had a momentary lapse of memory, that you had a 2-4-4-2
Never saw that many photos of her on The Moggy.
A late addition to the fleet, I recall now.
