Lovely train and setting!

You built the train?

Thanks guys. No, did not build the train. Bob Thon(Robert's Lines-see old GR ads) had 100 sets made in Korea in 1989. He put this set together for me last year from leftover parts. Had to do some work on it also. It's all metal, has a HUGE Pitman motor in it. 10 of the sets went to Wada, in Japan , he put live diesel power in those. You can see one run on youTube. I made the cab interior on this one and plan interiors for the cars. Jerry

Great run, Jerry. Will you bring the Zepher to Marty's?

Bridge/tunnel all done, just waiting on the chief landscaper to say when. Have all the rocks/new liner for the waterfall. Pretty hot now though.

Jim-may bring it to Marty's, but have to convert it over to RC which would not be too hard. It's too small to fit my Aristo R/C in and my other unit(old Cox Tx/Rx and RCS controller) have been acting up some. We'll see. Want to bring the Mike again, Ron said he was bringing his and RJ Deborg said he'd have his Mike there on Sunday. Should be fun! Jerry

Jerry,
Today Susie and I went to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. We toured the original Burlington Zephyr, which was on display. I will either post or send some pictures after we get back to Wichita this weekend.
JimC.
