I started my Canadian Pacific passenger train consist with two great scores on Ebay with brand new items I won recently.  The first is a mint 5 car set of Canadian Pacific 20"/80' Weaver aluminum passenger cars I bought buy in now for $129.99 and the other is a Canadian Pacific MTH add on E-8 B unit I sniped in with 2 seconds left and won for $64.11.  I am now looking for the matching MTH ABA set of engines or an AA set of Weaver CP E-8's.  I have someone who will be at York to pick them up if anyone has them for sale there.

I had a sale table at a model train show today, and I managed to sell several excess items and walked away with a decent chunk of money. I managed to find three 1943 dated railroad magazines, in excellent condition.

Afterward, I went to Hobby Lobby with my wife before dinner, and I found this light switch that I simply couldn't resist. After I got home, I immediately attached it to the main light switch in the layout room.

Well, I finally got the 1944 cyclopedia in the mail. Not cheap, but it was well worth the money. I was very surprised to find a locomotive listed under the fireless section, one of which I had seen running many times and even been in the cab of it, under steam...

The locomotive is on display today, in Elizabethton, Tennessee.

This past weekend picked this Hallmark Ornament (1957 Dodge pick-up truck) at a Church Craft Show (donation table) and paid $2.00 .
It is very close to O scale (there has been numerous discussions on the Forum with Hallmarks scales.
In one of the photos I compared it to the new Lionel’s Panel truck by Menards.
Forced prospective works good.
So you never know what you could find at these sales.

Thought this purchase would be the realization of a fascination from the late mid-50's.  The fascination was in Lionel's catalog image of a New Haven EP-5.

Personally I find the K-Line scale version the nicest.  Found on on eBay NIB with both pilots intact based on pictures.  

But this is how it arrived August 2.

One of the "fra-gil-e" (Christmas Story) pilots was snapped off.  And somehow one of the electro-coupler's wires ripped away.

As Ralphy says in the movie "in our height of revelry ... ."  The wind was sucked out of my sails.

For a couple of weeks pondered the best way to try and fix this.  Conjured up this fixture to work with the broke pilot on.

Decided best fix was to literally fix the pilot to the frame of the "front" forward end.  With my almost thirty-years in Nuclear-QA had to have a checklist of actions.

 

After two-days of very careful delicate work the results.

Rear end with pilot mounted as built on truck.  This allows free movement for coupling to consist.

Now I feel really good and very happy with the results.  The fixed pilot on forward end looks great.

Congratulations on your repair. I've actually had two of these engines arrive with broken pilots. The one I currently have is all intact, but I'm probably going to try brushing  a coat of JB Weld epoxy on the surfaces of the entire assembly to give it additional strength. The Chinese-made diecast on the pilots of these engines was defective and ended up being brittle, and in addition the design of the pilot with the two very narrow connections to the rectangular part (as shown in your picture) was a bad design - it was not big enough to have much strength, and would easily break. Mine were broken in the same place, and one of them broke further into small pieces.

You're right about the engine, though - it is the nicest NH EP-5 out there. I have it with the matching aluminum passenger cars and two express boxcars, and it's a great looking set.

My health wouldn't let me go to York (alhough l was going to skip this year anyway, until they start cranking out something interesting) , so l got an Carolina Craftsman Kit Matter's Mill off the net for condolences. This is the best looking mill of the several kits l have tracked down and built. I don't know what l am going to do with all of them together, but after hunting them down in SW MO., Falling Spring and some others are worth a visit.  With these, tipples, and shaft houses, kit and scratch, l can amuse myself until somebody offers  interesting rolling stock. First meet missed since 1985.

 

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