Best Birthday Ever!

Yesterday was my birthday.  It was also the monthly meeting of the Sugar Creek Model Railroad Club.  And someone donated what could be called a metric (poop)load of postwar and prewar Lionels in,  well, let's be charitable and say 'well loved' condition.  After a bit of haggling (and a modest donation to the club), the Razorback Traction Company's Home For Wayward Lionels has added this:  GEDC2234

After a bit of cleaning and tweaking, this 2032 consist was growling pleasantly along my layout last night:

GEDC2236

The motor in this 628 was immaculate.  Once I get the E-unit sorted out, it should be a nice runner!

GEDC2237

The prewar 253, while dismanted, has all the major components and, being fairly bulletproof, should go together nicely once I get a new pickup: 

GEDC2238

The postwar freight cars will also clean up well with a bit of loving: 

GEDC2239

This stock car is in very nice condition.  All it needs is a giraffe sticking out of the roof: 

GEDC2240

Some Marx and Lionel signals were also  included:

And now, closeups of the 253:

Note the Christmas tree light in this Pullman:

I'm looking forward to rehabbing the vintage Lionel transformer in order to run the prewar varnish:

A pair of 1122 switches and a stack of O27 track complete the package!

All in all, a very happy birthday!

It's crackers to give a rozzer the dropsy in snide!

 

Remember, SCROUNGE!
