Thanks Spence. That Lee is a tough act to follow. I’m at 70 if I include dummies and trolleys. Here are a few of them. I can run 9 comfortably (2 on each train loop with DCS keeping them at the same speed and one on the trolley loop). Normally I don’t run more than 4 or 5 at a time.
Cousin, looks like a fun layout. Lots of action.
As for loco count, I have no idea other than its well into triple digits. Of the ones I more or less keep track of, my NYC steam, 25 scale Hudsons all but one a unique cab number, 6 scale Niagaras, 6 scale Mohawks and at least that many Mikados.
I don't have an exact count, but I have between 125 and 140 I believe. I have these on display already, and lots more scattered around in boxes waiting for the layout to be done so I can open them up and get rid of all the boxes. Virtually all of these are command equipped, and the three or four that aren't are slated to get the upgrade when time permits.
Only about 2 years into O. 30 years into HO over 130 locomotives.
I have 9 O scale engines that includes 2 dummies. They all run great. Happy with each one. 5 of my 9 engines I bought from members here. From Bob S I got a 2-8-2 Mikado made in Korea, and I got a Santa Fe FT Chief set. I got a nice set of UP PA A-B-A from Forrest. My pride and joy is a MTH premiere J class #611. Had been on display but never ran.
Wow thanks for the replies guys I am blown away by the walls full of trains those are some nice collections!! Great pics and video! I’m only a year into this and only work on it in the winter. So I have a few years of work to go!
I bought a older MTH GP40 shell (20-2424-1 PS2 5v) and I want to place it on a later production MTH GP40 (20-20832-1) a PS3 chassis.
The older shell has the four double spring electrical connections. Does the PS3 chassis use the same spring contact design?
