A fly/onel set. Beautiful train. From early 1980s. Southerm Pacific Day Light scheme.

PA locomotives A B A. With Railsounds.

I don't have a layout so most pictures are done on top of wall behind my house.

I almost got one of those Royal Blue sets. When I was around 6 or 7 my dad took me to a big hobby shop (Corr's in D.C.) to get a new train set for my birthday. I had an old Marx set but I wanted something more "interesting". When we got there he said pick what you like. They had a Royal Blue set, but I opted for a 3-car standard passenger set with a New Haven Pacific loco. It had a figure 8 of track with the set. I eventually traded the whole thing for an HO train table when I entered into the scale hobby about 10 years later.

The Royal Blue is one good looking locomotive. I have one. Hope to add a smoke unit someday. They did not come with a smoke unit. Nor a hole in smoke stack. Easy enough to take care of with a drill. Kinda watching for a Silver Bullet locomotive for cheap to put under my Royal Blue shell. The Silver Bullet has smoke unit and the added side rod linkage like the Royal Blue.

Mopac, good idea starting this thread. For my first contribution I am unfortunately breaking a few of the rules you set. I will try to adhere closer with future contributions.
This is a Lackawanna Trainmaster from AM. I purchased it new at an S Fest many years ago in Chicago. It has been modified to add Railsounds and run with the Legacy control system.
The photo was taken today in the freight yard area of my layout.

You are fine Tom. Great looking locomotive. Anything S scale is fine. Thanks for participating. This will give us something new to look at each day.

I was thinking about what I could post that would be both interesting and not something one sees every day. While my first trainset was purchased in 1950 by my parents I have been collecting in some manner since the late 1970’s. On the other hand some of these items may be totally boring to look at.
I cannot post every day since I am home usually only 4 days/week.So here goes.
Ever wonder how train sets and some other items got from the factory to the distributors. The answer is master cartons. Here is a master carton for shipping the 5108-W set. It holds two sets. Yes, this one has the two complete sets in it. One side has a closeup of the set info, the other is just the other side so the whole carton is visible.

My Uncle Bill's 295 that I repainted, changed tender, added head and tail light, added smokestack, added DC can motor, added TMCC cruise lite and railsounds (including chuff switch on the smoke plunger gear), and added decals in attempt at a rough replica of the famous L&N 152. It's certainly no scale model, but it was my first attempt at many of these types of mods and it was done to a piece of my family's history.

We certainly have some great S scale collectors here. All neat stuff. thanks for showing
guys. This is already a great thread. We will get some neat ideas from each other. And
for me maybe some motivation for a layout.
