There is a train show in Anaheim, CA. this weekend it was well attended with lots of folks, vendors and modular layouts. I am walking down the aisles, not seeing much, when I stumbled onto a very early LGB German diesel loke, painted green and very dusty. I don't model the European countryside, however for $35.00 I can use the details, hoods and power truck. It has been run, but has many more hours of useful life in it. I put it on rollers and discovered that it not only runs like an LGB engine, the lights work and it has a very early sound system! SCORE! So now I need to decide what to do with it. Bash it and use it for parts or run it as-is... decisions... decisions. Just wanted to share my good fortune with a group of people who would appreciate it, Don.
