To close out the week here is a picture of the entire UP passenger train. Unfortunately this picture also makes evident that in three years I have not made time to install the Maple veneer on the layout sides.

Looks like a lot of progress with more empty space waiting to be utilized. Now that the pesky 600 gate project is behind you there will be more time for other additions.

Got my Southern flat car with 2 trailers today. Happy with it. A little shelf wear on box,
but not bad. New in box. Unrun from 1984. Made in Mexico. Seller had buy it now at
@25.00 or best offer. I offered 20.00 and seller accepted. All most bought a flat with
2 American Flyer trailers today. Seller said brand new but then reading on it was a car
he put together. It did not have the rack to hold trailers so I did a Texas on it, El Paso.
I think it was 24.99 plus shipping.

Nice, I do not see Southern cars very often. You seem to get these things inexpensively, I wonder if my zip code causes me to see higher prices!?!?!?

Tom, I do a lot of looking. Another PRR got listed and they want 64.99. I got mine for 15.00 new. I missed a decent price on a REA flat with trailers today. I guess you can't get them all.
I never saw it till it was over. I watch "ending soonest", "Recent listings", and "completed".

Mopac, I stay off of EBAY. Maybe once per quarter I will do a generic "american flyer trains" search to see what is listed.
