Buy anything cool lately?

I picked up these two Lionel SD70ACe's yesterday from McCormick Hardware.  We made a train day out of it.  Ran our of time to go by Conway, but made it to Corner Field Railroad Museum.  I think they look awesome and I was surprised and happy that they were changed O-36 and didn't use the fixed pilot truck.  Works better for my layout that way when I run a couple engines together.   My ES44AC's don't like my O72/54 curved switches lashed up together.  Bad news though, I had some trouble with the front coupler activating on some of my curves and the rear motor not running at the same time on UP1943.  Took it off the track a couple times and eventually everything worked except for the front coupler which no longer works.  Something got hot inside because I can smell it.  Needless to say 1943 is going to need some warranty work!  Also, be aware of the bar that is above the coupler, it moves and can get stuck underneath the body and not let the truck to move freely.  NS1111 had no problems and ran awesome!  Smokes real well.

Thaddeus, They look great!  I’m sorry you had trouble with them. I haven’t been in McCormick’s for a while.  I always feel like I have to buy something when I go in, and was on an austerity program with Christmas shopping, car repair, and medical expenses.  LOL

Picked up this Weaver PRR Shark A-B. Was advertised as "not running" - didn't care as I had planned all along to make them non-powered dummies.  They match up well to the MTH version (on the left). Now, if I like, I can run an A-B-B-A set of Sharks.

These two arrived today.  The coal dump car should be here by tomorrow.   Williams by Bachmann operating cars.  No OCS or UCS need apply.  The hand held transmitter does all the work, anywhere on the layout !

EDIT:  Had to send the full length dome back.  Posted a WTB for a LIONEL 6-19128, a 15" polished aluminum Santa Fe full length come, without an interior.

WTB:  Lionel SF polished aluminum, full-dome 15" passenger car, 6-19128, for paint project; no box needed; minor or repairable cosmetic damaged examples considered.

Buy anything "cool" must include the stuff that goes into "cool" for me.  Cool will be making a Texas Special train from Santa Fe polished aluminum cars.  The cars I now have, but I also have:

508 and paint 007

Not pictured here, but previously posted, are the MOLOTOW liquid chrome that will replicate the stainless trim on the cars, and the Texas Special plaques from LIONEL parts department that will go on the cars.

Don,

Those look great!  And, they bring back some memories of similar tins from bygone days. Just the right height for the tree, too.

Wow, some great pictures above and some Great finds. My RJ Corman SD40-2 finally arrived and worked out of the box, and my dealer checked it out before I picked it up.  The Caboose however, needs to have the brakeman re-positioned. He’s on the floor.....Must have had a real quick stop......It’s gonna be Ok...F1D46460-584A-4893-A06E-4AEBD26D7F7E13691485-AD12-4148-8984-79904E8ACC89D137AE20-0E35-4985-8040-4CE59BC03F0DF3EA1791-1C33-42D9-8BB1-8F11D70D6BB3

Bought MTH 30-73302 Hawaiin Kona Coffee Smoking Tank Car on Friday. Have been scouring the internet, using saved searches on auction sites, forum WTB, and looking for this at swap meets and train shows for better part of 2 years. On Friday, out of the blue, I decided to go to the MTH product search page and Find It Locally tab and it showed up in Train Loft's (Winston-Salem) inventory. Called and spoke with Jeff and he shipped it out same day. Already have a string of these smoking tank cars so happy to add to the consist!

I don't have a lot of want to buy items on a list, but I have been hunting for this and the original Christmas ES44AC (forum member came through on this one) without any luck and found them both in the last 30 days. The small wonders in life bring a lot of joy!

Hi guys, I know its not much, but I sure needed a new one and I found this Weller W100P at the good will for $5.99. I brought it home and did a test piece of track to solder together. Man is this thing great! I bet if I get the replacement tips I will be really happy!20190106_16440020190106_164414

That’s a great deal, Mike!  My wife’s second favorite store.  Her favorite is St Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, which is probably her favorite because it is closer!  LOL

Hey Mark, your wife has great taste! I love St. Vincent's also, just don't have one near us anymore!

Got in another Matchbox 1937 lH truck . Finished one, but second lengthened for logging truck has been a pain to overpaint the factory lettering.  (multiple coats and redos) . Probably do an REA one and a sugar beet hauler.  These were hard to find, but the n a few surfaced.

??Another one of THOSE!!??  What you want to sell is not what I want to buy!

Yes, finally received my CXS Theater Car, and my dealer added the people to ride along.....It matches the CSX StationSounds car which arrived a few months ago...They will be pulled in a mixed passenger train with other famous named railroads like UP, Sante Fe, etc, just for Fun....Happy Railroading BCFF7704-8CC1-42A5-AB08-DEC64E715EA1494B7062-253A-4AA3-AED2-24B21CED503095C99BEC-6957-4CB4-BB8F-89BF113EB5228595BBCB-981E-4A77-9D5B-608FA41B55D2AD74DE95-8AF7-4DC8-A2AE-815F45F55023

I got my new Lionel UP1943 the day after Christmas, but I just now got around to opening it up. It is so beautiful and the graphics are terrific. The horn is so loud but I like it! I ordered the caboose to go with it but it has not come in yet.
