Yesterday my set arrived along with the Pere Marquette , so I started the break in and after a few laps each around the provided track they both sounded like they were a little dry so this weekend I will pick up the necessary lube and such and lube every thing before going any further ... I must say they are really detailed, even the wife was impressed, I can't wait till Christmas

And tell her you got to use them NOW as the warranty is clicking away and you want to make sure it works right.:D

Well we just got back from The Chattanooga Choo Choo and it was sweet , we stayed in an old Victorian train car that had been converted into a room and we rode the Polar Express / North Pole Express as they have to call it ... I guess, but more later as I am tired from the drive

OK...I vote that the penalty for starting a thread without pics is 30 daze playing with a Brio trains playset while listening to the Thomas theme as played by Metallica...all in favor?:D:D:D

Great pics! I love the Chattanooga Choo Choo; I used to stay there on business trips. I had to do meetings with a small handful of people on Saturday mornings; I found it less expensive to get a suite and use it for the meetings instead of renting a room plus a conference room. As a result, I often ended up with the honeymoon suite, all by myself. *L* That place is truly magnificent, and you have a beautiful family. Oh, and Shay----I've gotta take up for my man. Every time I get a new toy, I want to tell everybody and post it before I've had time to take pics!
