Flyernut it seems you and I subscribe to the same weathering procedure. I refer to mine as "natural house weathering".

I have a ton of O scale including Pa units, FA units, Lionel, K-Line, and MTH... That outside O scale loop is for my Big Boy and Allegheny locomotives.

He started and owned his own tool and die company, and when he retired and sold the company, he was a multi-millionaire. He has a heart of gold.....And as life would have it, as soon as he retired he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease..He sold all his hit and miss engines, got rid of all the firearms, sold his tractors, and basically got rid of everything he collected during his life. He was a practical man, getting ready for his vastly reduced way of life.. He's still around, and I just spoke with him several days ago, and I sent him several magazines about the Pennsylvania RR..He loves the Pennsy, and he'll be able to read in his bed.. He lives in a beautiful area of PA, with mountains and natural springs everywhere. All my family came from PA shortly after WWII, and settled here in upstate NY.After he passes, I'll never have a need to go there again..

My layout is L-shaped, 12' x 12' with 6' short ends. The problem I have is I can't get to the middle of the layout.. When we had the O scale set up,it was 12' x 12' with 5 loops of O scale.. What a NOISE those trains made when all 5 loops were running.. You had to shout to talk to anyone,lol..And then a good buddy of mine introduced me to EBAY!!!!!!. Out went the O scale and in came my child-hood favorites, AF!! I still have all the O scale, huge boxes of the stuff!!!

Great looking Penn salt tank car Fred. Lionel has cooled my jets to get an original one... for the time being anyway.

Great looking Lionel engines flyernut. They appear to be in perfect condition. A very nice gesture from your cousin.

Yes, they are in wonderful condition, as well as the aluminum passenger cars.. I would love to show off my Big Boy and Allegheny but they are buried deep in my bedroom closet.

Can not have too many trains but sometimes it is hard to find the one you are looking for.

I know I have over 130 HO locomotives, some are dummies, 3 Big Boys.
Around 20 AF steamers, around 11 flyonel diesels.
Around 10 O scale engines.
around 7 N scale locomotives. Maybe more.
2 G scale locomotives.

Please, NO more trains

Thanks Cramden! I like tank cars but I think that I should limit my acquisitions to early post war cars. The newer ones are quite nice but my un-checked budget is limited. So far "She, who must be obeyed!" hasn't complained too much.
