" Short of building into the other half of my basement,

I do not have enough room for my collection of motive power and rolling stock,

that seems to keep increasing " :us:



Hi    Ken  :cool:


Tell me about it !  :old dude:


Do they seem to just follow you home ? ...  :sad:

... You put a saucer of warm oil down on the floor for them ...  :P

... And they end up staying ! 

:doh:

Other than 1 or 2 potentially NEW build ideas, in corners of my dusty mind ...  L:

... my 1:35n2 fleet has been given NON-EXPANSION orders !  :shocked:


That just leaves me with a moderate 'Tri-ang' Transcontinental(TM) addiction problem ...  :f:

... Oh ! ... I forgot about my teeny-weeny, very small  ;)  1:32 slot-car stash ... Eh !  :slow:


Keep working on the bridge Ken ...  :cool: :dt:

... & you can get therapy to cure your rolling-stock habit !  :w:


:java::moose:


Si.

Si.


The last three trips down under, have resulted in a loco purchase each time,

Of 4-4-0, Coffee Pot, NA 2-6-2T, and for my birthday a IF 2-8-0  :bang:


Could never justify having all my loco's on the layout at any one time,

or rolling stock for that matter.  :shocked:


On my last layout I could run 4 trains with 25 to 30 cars,

with no room for scenery.


Latest effort, has room for scenery, and a lot less track.  :2t:

So no long trains, other then two 12 car ore trains.


Although not sure I will have room for a mine,

likely a dead end spur leading to one.  L:

Very tempting for 2022


Short of getting a NA in Canadian Red, I had to settle for a black one.  :bg:

Need to assemble a 6 pack of WP&Y Anvil concentrate cars for it to haul.


Do have 5 items of rolling stock,

plus a New Zealand 2 dome tank car for it to haul at times. 

:2t:

Hi Canadian    Ken  :wave:


Seasons Greetings to all you Canadians there in Canada !  :cool:


I like the sound of your 2-6-2T on the bridge.  :thumb:

I quite fancy one of those myself.


In time ... Maybe an On30 Mogul conversion.  L:

I have been collecting some nice 2-6-2T pics.


:java::moose: :dt:

Hi    Ken  :wave:


Looks like I'm still tryin' to get those stubborn pack horses up to the darn mine !  :mex: :moose: :moose:





How's things down on the Norquinco River ?  ???

Or is that the Slocan gorge ?  ;)


:doh:

Si.


You might need to test those nice NEW Peruvian boxcars on the bridge ...  L:

... just to see if they work properly, 'Health & Safety' yer know !  :f:


Yer never know as well, some bystander might even have a camera & snap 'em !!  :shocked:

Si.

I am sure that can be arranged.  :shocked:


Will put together a train of my Peruvian rolling stock,

not all of them as I have 25 ore cars.  :Crazy:


Provided I do not get too involved in a locomotive conversion,  L:

of a Bachmann OF 2-8-0, into a OF 4-6-0 for passenger service.


:glad:
