Photo of the day!!!

I am starting this thread in hopes that it will catch on. About 10 years ago I was a moderator for a diecast forum and I started a thread like this one and it carried on for years. This will be a thread where the members will post one pic each day when possible. We all like pics. Most of us are here every day any way.
I have noticed we have been having a lot of guests lately to the S forum. That is great. Maybe they will join so they can participate.
You have to be a member to post pics. Its easy and its free. Simple idea. Post only one pic a day here. Pics can be anything AF. Try to have only one item in pic. Pic can be locomotive, AF accessory, or a car. If you run out of stuff to show start over.
With your pic tell us a little about the item. Like where you got it, if it is working, what you need to do to it, anything. Remember, only one pic here each day. Just so the thread will last longer. I love pics and hope you do also. I will start it off with next post.


And of coarse you can post more than one comment each day. Fly/onel items can be posted.

This is my first AF locomotive. Got it used in 1955. It is a 1952 model. Runs great Being from when I was a kid I am fond of it.
Oh, its a 282, plastic body Pacific. I need to resolder wires from tender to engine plug. Since this pic I have installed a new harness.

I'm not really up on AF trains, but I got this shell in a box of Marx stuff about 5 or 6 years ago. I believe it was originally a wind up with a battery tender for light. Any more info would be appreciated. Or if someone has the motor for it they would like to get rid of.
(I don't know if that should be in the Classified or not, if so just delete that portion.)

Wow Panther, that is an old one. Pre War for sure. I know nothing about it. I tell you who might, Teledoc..
He messes with those old tin plate locomotives. If you think it might be O gauge post a pic in the O gauge forum and Teledoc will see it.


Better yet, post it in the "Tin Plate" forum. Someone there will know about it.

Here's my Royal Blue rebuild. It was my Uncle's engine from 1951. I repainted it, put in a can motor, electronic e-unit and smoke. Works great.

She's a beauty. That's great it is a smoker. Good job. Funny, I had already thought I would show my Royal Blue tomorrow. I will save it.
Did you put a LED in for headlight?
