You are lucky Broke, don't push it. That is a nice blue tanker. I like.


Thanks cramden. It really is a looker. Got it off ebay. Seller had it on display but NEVER run. I checked the wheels
and I would say it had not been run. It has great sound and fan driven smoke unit. It will smoke you out of the house.
Its MTH Premier scale. A little bigger than normal O scale.

Forgot to say - I hate 3 rail track, does not look real. But that O scale stuff runs great.

I decided to post 2 different photos. The first is a static ski train scene using an HO Atlas UP engine, box car and a Sunset Ltd. passenger car I had in my stored HO collection. Using the HO smaller scale gives the idea that the train is farther away. The mountain it sets on is actually 3 ft. tall. I got the scene idea from a TV program that was showing something similar in Colorado.
The second photo is a an anniversary box car I bought new at the Tinley Park, Il. S Fest one year.

Nice car to have. In two years it will be 75 years, I wonder if Lionel will make a special 75th anniversary car.

I have shown these before but I like seeing them. These are
my 2 northerns. Paint is about as good as they come on both. I paid a bundle for each but they are worth it to me. I have a lot of
bargains but that would not be these. A 336 and a 332AC. They both run great. I have put a new wire harness on the 336 and the
332AC I have done nothing to it.

Very nice Al! I especially like the 332AC! I would put it under glass and set it upon the mantle. (If I had one)

Thanks Broke. They are the pride of my fleet. They both belong in a display case.


Broke, I do have a mantle over the fireplace, but it is not very deep. I would be afraid to put them there.
We do have earth quakes here. Seldom but enough it would worry me.


336 is knuckle coupler
332AC is link coupler

336 came from New York
332AC came from Texas

Thanks Tom. I wish I knew if Lionel was planning a 75th anniversary car. It would make a good companion to my 50th year one.
