    Hey, Bob, it's me. Promised I'd get in touch with you.
    Vroom vroom! Fast little guy. And quiet and steady. No jerking.

    I now have a great piece of equipment. And I have you to thank.

    Actually, I will have to be sending the RS11 first. It is not working right now. Cleaned it, lubed it, and it still runs for a second and stops. You give it a little push and it goes for a second and stops, etc. So I think maybe I should get that one taken care of first. The GP38-2 is still running, for now. Also, I am not sure how familiar you are with vintage Lionel and Revell stuff, but I just picked up a very old (50's-60's) HO set. It looks like it was well cared for once upon a time, but that time appears to have passed. I think I want to try and restore it. Good idea, or a money pit waiting to happen?

    Oh no problem, I understand. I broke my middle toe Easter Sunday, so been dealing with that and trying to work, just been coming home and relaxing for a couple of weeks now. But, that sounds excellent. I did miss some days due to Spring Break and then the broken toe, so as soon as I can get up the money, I will send the GP38-2 first. Thank you very much. She's been grounded for a week now and I miss her already. Luckily the RS11 is pulling The Milwaukee Road passenger train, so all those lovely passengers can still ride.....

    Sorry for my delay. I have a Kato GP38-2 The Milwaukee Road (second run) I bought used. I believe it just needs cleaned and lubed and tested real good. It still runs good, but sounds a bit dry inside. Then, one by one, I also have a Trix F7 and a Kato RS11 that I would like to get all checked out as well. The Bachmann GP40 is only 4 months old so I think it can wait till last. Just not comfortable enough yet to start taking locomotives apart. Is that all doable?

    Hello shay. I apologize for the unsolicited message. I was given your name by another member. It looks as if everyone needs your help. I am very new to model railroading, going into my 4th month. I was wondering about getting some locomotives serviced; cleaned real good, lubed, parts checked and/or tested. Usual, probably long overdue maintenance. Is that something you would be interested in doing?
