To me, steam engines are the best part of any layout, and the more detail they have the better! I can not wait to get my own layout and pick up a UP Big Boy
Yea, it is a Google imageGreat pic B&M! :thumbsup:
I have a lame loco and my dream is to get a fab steam like that one. I shop around every day.
Fo' sho'!B&M, you will need an extra large layout with extra large curves so your Big Boy can actually go around
The AHM/Rivarossi model from the 70s like the one I have can take 22" radius but, off course, looks pretty sorry doing it...it can clear your mainlines of any pesky rail side detail pretty quick.:laugh:B&M, you will need an extra large layout with extra large curves so your Big Boy can actually go around
Once again I am just amazed by your work! That piece looks like it just rolled into your layout from the UP main-lineI just love tinkering, bringing junk back to life like this one...
Just had to rub it in a bit...
When I say "shop around" I mean surf the web dreaming. I am broker than broke. When I find a new job I will be soo happy not to hit my dad up for money anymore.Yea, it is a Google image
My loco is lame too, just a tiny 2-8-0 in comparison to that 4-8-8-4 beast...
At least you have some money to shop around, I am flat broke... I need to get a job
Thank you. I don't spend a whole lot on my trains, in fact, with the exception of basic supplies, I've resolved not to buy anything this year at all. I broke it for a recent collector set purchase and have somewhat regretted it since but that's only strengthened my resolve. At $15, it was not a great loss and certainly is a nice set but the rod of correction has been received.When I say "shop around" I mean surf the web dreaming. I am broker than broke.
