Finished #6 and fixed #5!!!

My plan needs 6 turnouts to complete the main loop, so that part is done. Next is to acquire some lumber and start building the new layout.

But I'm giving myself a break from that right now and working on an old Walthers passenger coach kit I got a few months back, shouldn't be long before I'm back on the layout!!!

As a side note, my sympathies on the kidney stones.  I have had two small ones.  It definitely expands one's pain scale.
I haven't had much time to work on my layout lately.  I am in On30 and lurk on this forum because Si assigned me as the moderator due to On30 at least being 1/4" scale.
But I spent a good deal of time years ago in standard gauge.
In fact, your mentioning a passenger car needing attention, I have a LaBelle wood combine that I barely got started decades ago.  It would be a nice display model if I got it completed.
I need to find trucks, though.

Reg,

I bought a pair of MTH trucks to go under this car, part number is:

MTH 20-89014 2-Rail Heavyweight Passenger Car 6-Wheel Truck Set (2)

Around $30 I believe.

I hadn't thought of checking out MTH.  I used to use Kemtron.  Long gone now.
I would need two axle trucks, early 20th century vintage.
I will check them out.

Good luck Reg!

You may want to visit the Train Model Journal forum, there's a bunch of old hands there that may have what you're looking for.

Thanks, Bob.  Conversely, I may have to visit a psychiatrist to try and figure out why on earth I launched on a kitchen remodel.
Which is why I haven't commented much lately.  Just no modeling activity going on a-tall.
