Chaz,

I have the same number of brake vans also. And had the same idea with the spiteful brake van.

Chaz, I totally agree on the Bachmann Oliver front. I waited three years for him to be announced, another two to get the model, and when he finally got to me I found that after a few months I was bored and unhappy with him and he hadn't been worth any of the hassle. There's an important lesson in there somewhere...

Another order from ehattons.

Slip Coaches

Ok Ok...They're not really...

They're actually Hornby GWR Coaches

They're the Hornby Railroad ones, which is their budget range.

Since they're no slip coaches in the HO/OO market,


I think these make great substitutes





They go really nice with Duck.

What do you think?

So this isn't a "Thomas" model, but I wanted to share it on here because this was the same engine I rode at Day Out with Thomas on the Mount Hood Railroad in Hood River, Oregon.  The Thomas used for these was basically a "dummy" that was being pushed and pulled along with this locomotive at the back of the train doing all the work.  I just got this custom painted from an acquaintance and in future shows I can have this reanact those Day Out with Thomas trips at club setups.  It's a GP38-2 made by Athearn, one of the few locomotives that still runs on the Mount Hood Railroad:





Here it is at Day Out with Thomas:
