Nice paint job on that BEEP, I hadn't seen that design before.

Bob, did it get a little warm during the summer in the attic ? My attic is really stuffy during the summers. I store a lot of my train shipping cartons in the attic in case I ever need them to ship an item.

Sometimes it gets a little warm and sometimes it gets stupid hot and sometimes it gets too cold. But I do have a gable end fan and a portable space heater so more often than not, it’s a nice place to run trains. Here are a few recent (2017) shots. One from roughly the same angle as the old ones and one from the doorway showing the attic fan.

#611. My only MTH Premiere locomotive. Would like more.
I got this off ebay at what I thought was a good price. Seems
like it was 200 something. It had served as a display engine
and never ran. Runs and sounds great. No sync smoke but
otherwise I love it. Got a BCR for it a couple weeks ago and
need to install it. I do not have a real layout so it gets photo
on the floor. I guess it is what is called scale size. It is big.
Maybe a little out of scale to my other engines. Still learning
O scale.

Mopac, your J looks great! Premier is scale sized while Railking can be either scale, as in the case of their SW switchers, or slightly smaller than scale O. It depends on the particular locomotive...

$200 for a scale J from MTH is a great price, I'd have hopped on that one and done a command upgrade.
