Thanks Broke, not a day goes by I do not think about a layout. The planning stage is
over. I know exactly what I want. Now, to just build it. I have all the lumber I need
except the plywood top. And I need some bolts, washers, and nuts to hold all the sections together. LOL, I still say it is coming.

flyernut, I know you have the set also. And have added cars. It only comes with 4 cars. It is a looker.
And we added the B unit with Railsounds.

I have a additional B unit for my NP set, making it a ABBA, 1 B unit with sounds, the other just a plain Jane, but everything is new.

Lots of interesting pictures guys, thanks for sharing. My picture for today is my K5364W boxed "Silver Rocket" set from 1953. I have a soft spot for chrome engines and cars. As Tom stated, they can be hard to find in great condition, so when I saw this I couldn't pass it up. Not perfect, but nice enough for me. The boxes are packed away so just the train is shown.

I do not have any MoPac passenger sets, those look nice.
The Rocket set is in good condition. Most have more wear and chipping than the one pictured.
I think the only chrome diesels I have are 405's. They seemed to hold up better than the later engines.

Flyernut said he still has the 24533 track cleaning car available. They are had to find in LN condition and they do work well cleaning the track. I do not recommend them only if a layout has scale style open frog turnouts.
Here is a picture of the box. This car has never been out of the OB. You can see it is wrapped in very fragile thin cellophane that is damaged just by handling it. Once the car is removed the wrapper is destroyed. A strange box design.

Mopac great looking engine set and the observation car. Always liked the looks of that Mopac set and passenger coaches.

Cramden the chrome on those Rocket engines and coaches looks pretty good. I know it took me forever to put together a nice set with all the correct cars with nice looking chrome. I originally bought the Rocket set at a train show with good chrome but not great. My intention was to upgrade as I found better coaches at train shows. Eventually I had 11 coaches, many duplicates, but finally a nice set of coaches with nice chrome. My engines both had nice chrome except for a few minor blemishes and one small scratch on the nose of one of the engines. All said and done, I sold it all. As I have said before, while a good looking set, it just didn't look right for my rural, rustic themed layout. Too fancy. A 312 or 302 pulling New Havens or heavyweights looks much better. Yes I could have kept the Rockets in my collection and shelved them but the money offered was better.

Nice 336 Mopac.
Here it is Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. The outside lights are up, the interior is decorated and I am sitting in the UAL lounge waiting for a delayed flight to Newark. Don’t ask why I am doing this with all the bad weather in the northeast.
While waiting I have a picture of a 678 turnout with its OB. This one has been on some of my layouts, it could use a cleaning. The only things unique are the OB and the single controller.
