You have been aggressive on the acquisition front, Jim. Beautiful purchases. You have got the passenger car bug for sure!

That North Coast Limited set is very rare and beautiful.

These photos were taken with my Iphone, so they're not up to the standards most of you are used to. But here's a double headed Illinois Central SD40 with Pullmor motors and 12-wheel drive that I acquired over the summer, then found an inoperable one a year older. So, I took out the motors and MUed the two of them and they make a good team pulling one my freights circa late 1960s.

Then a couple of Atlas reefers, my first Atlas freight cars.

Then a K-Line reefer with a load of green banana bunches handing from the ceiling, my first K-Line freight car. 2015-09-26 10.54.34.jpg

Well whadaya know? It worked. First time I've tried posting photos into the text of the post, and it worked.

This makes my day! Many thanks to GunrunnerJohn for his instructions and to teledoc's post on how to do this.

Great photos Vern. The size offers great definition. But I wish there was a way to downsize them just a bit. I use an Apple computer, and even though I upload them as small, they always come out so big here.
