Here's one more. This time with the lights out and only the "stars" shining.

Here's another video. This time, instead of doubleheading,  it is two trains going around the figure 8. The new Mogul with combine, passenger, flat car and logging caboose. The old one with Disney combine, passenger car, stock car, gondola, and caboose.

I ran across the original Narrow Margin trailer in my searches.

Maybe I've got a rod knocking.  Smiley
When I was doing my backdating, I managed to bend the "crosshead guides".
(Is that what you call them? I've been looking at all kinds of pics with arrows pointing to different parts on locos but none have an arrow pointing to the two bars that come out of the cylinder. I'm really trying to learn steam engine nomenclature but it's hard when none of the diagrams name ALL the parts and most of the diagrams are for more modern locos with pipes and rods going every which way.)
I tried to straighten them but they ain't perfect. I had enough headache trying to get those little black half-moon pieces glued back on the "crosshead guides".

Narrow Margin. But it's Gene Hackman.

That's Steven Seagal.
The only train thing with George Segal that came up when I Googled  was Bridge At Remagen.

I can't really hear it but my hearing is not the greatest. I wear hearing aids at night when I'm watching TV. I can hear low sounds but not high sounds.

I was playing with my trains on this rainy Sunday afternoon. I decided on a doubleheader with the new one and the backdated one. I used the four passenger cars and three freights cars and a caboose. No sweat at all going up my grade now.
Pretty easy to do the consisting with the E-Z Command. I guess that's why they call E-Z.

I suppose I could just use the foam from a Bachmann box too. This was handy. If I'm working on a short car like a gondola, I can just put more Kleenex in the box to raise the level.

I went back and forth over the floor with magnet and found my screw. Smiley

Train cradle - When I went to change couplers on some on my train cars, I needed something to kind of hold them upright. Since there are small parts like smoke stacks and brake wheels and ladders, I needed something that wouldn't mess with those. My passenger cars were long so I would need something long.
I looked around at some of the boxes I had gotten small packages in but they were too short.
There happened to be a half full box of Kleenex sitting on the table while I was contemplating this. Then it hit me! Right in front of me was the perfect cradle with a soft cushion of Kleenex. I cut the hole larger with scissors and it worked great.
While I used it for On30, cut a smaller hole and use a fuller box and it would work for HO.

I know 2-56 is pretty standard for a lot of the screws used in model railroading. I'm replacing my couplers with Kadee #148's. I've been having issues with the  E Z Mates coming uncoupled sometimes. It mostly happens at the bridge and there are small bumps going on and off. I've tried shimming the track but I can't get it perfect so it could be my track and not the couplers causing it.

I found some on Ebay. Somebody is selling used ones in lots of ten for $6.95 plus $3.50 shipping.

Thank Hunt for stocking over the vacuum idea.
