You got 4 of them? Just kidding. Sometimes the pics post more than you want.
I have 2 or 3 log cars. I like them. You have a good hobby shop.

Hey Al, I finally remembered to get you the name of that touch up paint I mentioned the other night. It is in fact "Sharpie"!!! It says on the tube that it is "oil based paint" and is a fine point type. That part is very important because I remember seeing medium point as well. Also there were other paint colors too. Just remember to look for the "oil based paint" description. As a reminder, that was at Hobby Lobby although I'm sure you could find it at other places that have the Sharpie brand. Maybe Walmart?

If it is oil based I would have some thinner handy incase you need to wipe it off and do it again.

You will probably like the Lionel better than the AF ones. I will never use an AF to run trains again.
Have you tried the Lionel yet? You should be able to run your trains slower when you want to. Like
coming into a station.

Oh, and Happy Birthday!!!

You will want to be real careful using that Type V transformer with AF items. The Type V will output 25V with 115V on the primary. Today's residential voltage is now 120V so a V can output 26 to 27V. That voltage will quickly make your Gilbert items "Display Only". Consider using a meter on the output and marking the 15V position in red magic marker on the dials.
