I just recently saw someone who had bought the real thing:

I like Irish Whiskey too!!

Yes, Joe. Though, not easily found, and no wonder with production limited to 500 case per annum. Green Spot is a 9 year old double wood. Famed Yellow Spot, a 12 year triple wood, last bottled in the 50's, should hit the shores soon. There was once a Red Spot to round out the range.

These brands are of the Midleton Distillery family of Cork, Ireland. I can strongly recommend any of these to those that enjoy triple distilled whisky. My go-to is the Jameson 12 year. Expect to drop 60 to 80 green spots for the Green Spot.

Thanks Mill City

 

I have had Middleton(excellent) and Red Breast.

 

Never knew about the "Spot" ones will look for them.

 

If you have a COSTCO near you they have a 18 year old under the Kirkland label that is crazy affordable and really good.

 

To keep this Train related

 

On Friday and/or Saturday nights when my son and I run the trains I like to sip a Bourbon, Scotch, or Whiskey while Joey runs the trains  Lately it has been more fun since we picked up those LionChief Locomotives!!!!

 

Thanks for the info!!!

And who said trains and adult beverages don't mix. Since my layout is all boxed up now, I can only enjoy the sipping aspect.

 

Thanks for the Kirkland tip. Unfortunately, the local Costco does not have an adult beverage department, but I'll check other locations. Two Gingers was developed by an entrepreneur here in Minneapolis and is serviceable considering the price-point.

I picked up a boxed Chicago Rivet 911-3 press outfit. This outfit is the functional equivalent of Lionel's ST-350 rivet press outfit.

I don't think it was ever used. Each of the fifteen tools came in it's own little cloth bag, gathered together into a larger one.

I have way too many trains for the size of my layout, so I procrastinate a lot about what I buy. Nothing of late has caught my fancy, so I am holding out for my wish list items:

  • Rail King open 12 or 14 bench trolley with PS3 in Connecticut and in Brooklyn (Red & Cream) livery;
  • Rail King wood sided interurban car with PS3 that I can repaint to mimic the New York & North Shore Traction Company's cars;
  • Rail King BRT open platform subway cars;
  • Rail King articulated locomotives.

it's Long Island No. 39 rolling

my sister found a Portland Rose menu.  have several menus.  the smallest i was able to find a free standing double sided lucite from so both sides of the menu could be viewed. these others i have are larger (the largest being about 12x17).  have never been able to find the same kind of frame for them.  would certainly appreciate ideas that would permit viewed of both sides.  custom built would be costly.

Fabulous Forrest at the Brewer Ave & Pacific RR 

Picked up two of these yesterday along with a full few size bells and a Nathan Airchime K3HA horn all from retired Union Pacific B40-8 locos. I'll clean it all up and then start working to find new homes for everything.

Boy, compared to some of the stuff listed, mine is a minor purchase but it will look great on the layout. I ordered them from Die-Cast Direct so I don't have them yet.

A 1937 Ford Tractor Trailer with Roadway markings and a 1947 International KB-12 Tractor with Crouse Cartage Co. painted on the doors of this yellow tractor. They both are 1/43.

I ordered the new Big Boy, got some more roadbed to lay more track and went to use the junk Harbor Freight dremel & it burned up after only the 2nd time using it. Went to LHS and bought new dremel ,drill press att. and flex shaft att. for cutting Gar Graves track (I make my own curves). Choo Choo Kenny

Discovered a gem for my druthers.  A K-Line Mikado with RS and TMCC.  Love the sounds.  It was UP, so I stripped it and will add Texas & Pacific.  First time I have undertaken this kind of project, but look forward to the challenge.

I finally paid off my Lionel 18' Milwaukee Road passenger cars. Both the 2 car set and the 4 car set. Stunning. The nicest passenger cars I have.

Just picked up this weathered MTH PS1 C&O Greenbriar. I got it from fellow forum member Hollsc off of the Buy/Sell board. I always wanted one of these engines since I road behind the real one about 14 years ago.

at least its cool to me....a new polar express tender(minus the shell with an added pa shell).

 

the tender has railsounds also and our forum sponsor, marios trains; was nice enough to swap roadnames.

 

can wait to try it out as its suppose to arrive today.

 

thop........

"Cool" to me, that is:

 

1) I acquired 2 pair of MINT in the box Super O 112 automatic switches plus 3 MINT in the box Super O 145 manual switches for $42.00 total.

 

2) I acquired a MINT MTH scale Dreyfuss for $305.00. I have custom Super O curves up to O-63 so this beauty will have no problem

I got the same Dreyfuss. Where did you get yours?

I recently got this. 

A older PS1 unit for under $100. 

Looks like its never been run. 

Unlike my other MTH SD60M and SD70M units, this one has see through grills and a window in the front cab door. The PS1 sounds are great. It too bad they will have to be removed for a TMCC conversion. 

 

The natural order of things is disorder.

When I picked up my Natty Boh reefer from Paul Strickland, the budget would handle "one". By random selection, I got road number 12009. I have regretted for years not getting 12008 too. Recently, an OGR member afforded me the opportunity to complete the set (thank you Gene).

BTW, I'm on my last of 7 cases of Natty Boh I bought on my last trip to York. A can went into tonight's Chili pot. Before Paul's project, I had never even heard of Natty Boh. It is now one of my favorites!

As reported in an earlier post, I just picked up my set of C&NW F-7 AAs from Lionel. Putting them on the track, they stuttered along a few inches and then derailed. Repeatedly.

 

Usually, Lionel diesels run fine right out-of-the-box but not this set. Looking at the underside, I noted that the gears were bone dry -- not a bit of grease. Also, one of the powered trucks would not turn at all when manually spun.

 

I greased  all the gears and oiled the wheels as indicated in the owner's manual and tried again. Some progress. The engine ran very slowly and hesitantly but stayed on the track. I applied more grease to the gears and worked the power trucks manually and finally got them turning a bit.

 

Tried running again and they finally started running smoother. After a couple of times around the layout, they got their legs and picked up speed, etc.

 

I am not used to engines coming in that stiff and with no grease on them at all. Is this the new standard from Lionel's factory?
