Thank you, Bob. Fortunately, when I download the photos they come out at just the right size when they're uploaded to the posts. It took me awhile to figure this out, as I'm a little slower than most members on this forum. :D

Keith and John: the K-Line wood sided reefer came with the banana bunches and tiny hooks used to hang them. The roof snaps out, then you place the hooks though small holes in the tops of the bunches and hang them from the inside ceiling of the snap-out roof. Then when they're all hung (there's 12 of them), you just snap the roof back on and you have a loaded reefer. This was a pleasant surprise to me, as this is my first K-Line car.

Evidently, K-Line made other loads for these reefers as well. I think that the detailing on the K-Line cars are every bit as good as the Atlas reefers.

Show us your newest locomotive or rolling stock purchase. ...snip...
Your post made me look at my ebay purchases this year: seventy-seven items in seventy-two auctions; groups of trucks, couplers each count as one. That does not count train shows, stores, etc. Here is a sampling:

This first in line to be two-railed and (maybe) internally lit with randomly flashing leds:


This has some possibilities for two-railing, note that I have a pair:


Non-powered and I am not sure why I got it as it is still three-rail:


A ten-dollar cabin? Even with the proper trucks! How could I resist?


These are from ebay. The two gray Lionels are converted to two-rail; one with Commonweath and one with Buckeye four-axle trucks:


Another two-railed Lionel:

Thanks GRJ... Just happened to see them on the OGR buy/sale forum and jumped at the chance to get it a very reasonable price.

Gene the fire trucks on flatcar is a nice piece of rolling stock.

I have two of these for my alien recovery train that I'm working on. I too plan on adding LEDs to it to make to ooze glow. Shining lit LEDs at the ooze gave it a nice look.

A couple new Atlas O cars arrived

These arrived yesterday.

An Atlas O Wisconic & Southern "we support our troops". It goes with the two I already had which read "God bless America" and "a day America will never forget". Also got an Atlas O cylindrical hopper for a simple re-lettering job.

Picked this up a few weeks ago.

These aren’t really new to the roster, but they’re recently returned from the back shop (Henning’s) where GRJ added smoke to the dummy (installed a tether and repaired the dummy smoke unit which I had managed to fry with 22VAC). They smoke pretty well, but it doesn’t show well in pictures.
