Bill,
Thanks for your comments.
How are you doing with your indoor layout?
Can you post some pictures?

Joe, thank you very much for posting my pic.
The layout is 4'-5" x 3'-0" and I used Aristocraft 15" radius track. My Bachmann Climax and 45 ton diesel locomotives operate alright on the tight curves.  I still need to do scenery and track ballasting.
Regards,
Chuck

We have Annie 4-6-0, how about Arnie 4-6-0?  Time some loco's get male names.  Or how about Big Ten Tootsie?

"tested and ran fine" quite often means used on somebodies layout for who knows how long.

They should also let us post pix right from our computers instead of having to go to a third party hosting site.  I belong to about ten other forums and they all allow direct picture uploading, no archaic third party hosting.

Looks great, Terry;
You can run three trains continuously plus the trolley!

Stan,
If I still had them, you would be welcome to them, but they went with the guy that got the caboose and boxcar.
Thanks for your info.

Stan;
I forgot to mention that the corner steps were also breaking off, I think on the caboose too. I'm not sure as I got rid of the caboose and one of the boxcars.

Hi Stan;
Now that you mention it, yes it was my two Murphy roof boxcars.  As a precaution, I went ahead and also replaced the trucks on my spectrum caboose.  Are the trucks alright on the earlier boxcars and the caboose?
Thanks,
Chuck

Rob, I also had the trucks disintegrate on two of my Spectrum boxcars.  The Spectrum freight cars and caboose are, in my opinion, the most accurate and best looking of any scale.  Unfortunately, it appears the trucks are made from what's known as "pot metal".  I replaced the trucks with Bachmann Big Hauler boxcar trucks I happened to have extra. They work fine, just don't look as good.
