Thanks. I am trying to stick with the color scheme of black, dark red, accessory green and yellow or gray. This seemed a good fit with my 751 log loader and 577 whistling billboard.

Nice looking Hudson mopac. One of my favorite steamers from Gilbert. Dare I ask if you've had a chance to run it yet?

cramden, thanks, I did run it. Runs great. Seller said it was serviced. New capacitor and speaker. Shame, I am going to rip all that out. Speaker is making some noise on its own. Reverse unit works great and it might be my best smoker. Smokes good even at slow speed. Smoke unit probably won't last long. Very nice looking Hudson.

The only non-vintage item I have acquired

Had to have this as a companion to my 751 log loader. All the vintage ones I run across are pretty rough and cost what this cost (almost new and fully functional).

My first foray into S scale was spurred by the availability of a Maryland Midland covered hopper.

I have a past with this type car as well as the old B&O hopper next to it.

I briefly worked for the MMID as a conductor until I managed to sideswipe a B&O hopper full of coal with a MMID covered hopper full of cement mix. The result was a week off with no pay and eventual firing. I moved on to better things and never looked back.

The MMID car is a MTH product, while the B&O hopper is a new AF car...

2 very nice looking S scale cars. Welcome to the S scale forum. You need to watch it.
S scale can become very addictive. I think it is a nice size. Not too big and not too small.


Nothing like bringing back old memories. LOL.
