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
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
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.
I saw it a few months ago there myself. Pix I took of the cab were very useful for my cab interior build. Took interior shots also for a future interior for the observation car. Got some of the cheap HK figures also. Jerry
