i can't know what others might have, so i thought to hear offers of trade here.
looking for modern power (or stuff), NS, BNSF or maybe some other road or something cool.

BTW, i still have that BN caboose... and that can be a nice set, MU of these two + whatever rolling stock + trailed by BN caboose ;)
i'm asking 18 for the hoppers.

hmm a deal... well, if you get the entire lot boxcar is free. how does that sound?
its really not my era nor my roads. got them during the "i got to have more trains!" period. now i'm focusing on quality instead of quantity
is this by the chance the SD40 with some decoder issues you were posting before?
i am interested. which road? please post pictures.

and then of course there is a question of residual value as this is not 1 to 1 trade. lets discuss over email? agrasyuk at
yep, got your engine as well. and as i opened i realised where was the disconnect with road numbers. in our PM you said green black BNSF. and it is actually a BN (which matched roadnumbers on the BLI site).
oh well.

going to try it out later tonight - my first sound engine :)
that does change things but not to much. i will look into replacement shell. i guess you saying "green/black" should have gave it away. oh well.
which approach did you take programming the separate decoders? the cv15,16 lock method or programming separately?

and as side note: BNSF is result of 1997 merge of BurlingtonNorthern with SantaFe. ;)

i know there is no decoder :)
but even without it i did notice that with front ditch lights glowing for some reason back headlight lights up. i will figure it out latrer

with that i already found out that DH163 (or 123) will not go in. no room... such a tease , i really wanted to run that thing a bit and hear it. will be shopping for that recomennded DZ decoder...
