Got the 17 lb of locos today ! OK ? 14 engines, 6 running neatly right away. I will have to open the rest, as usually some parts are out of place. This time the trains look like they had a very bumpy ride. One engine's metal chassis is even broken apart, like a chainsaw had its day, lol. I guess that explains why this time the Nicaraguan Customs officials didn't charge me any import duties except a $ 3 handling fee, because otherwise they consider model trains and slot cars, no matter however used, diamonds. So I will see how many more I'll make eventually run. So some minor repairs will be needed. I also got 9 engine shells intact. I'm not sleeping tonight ...
