Just a short note. I hope those that bought the MP E6, and perhaps those that have reserved the MP T&P E7 offering will be interested in seeing the later Jenks blue version of the Eagle cars. A Jenks run won’t be as complex as this Eagle run. It’s important that you let Scott know of your interest !!!!!!!!
Here’s some pix to whet your (train) whistle.

NDM fans - think 10-6 Budd with 6 wheel trucks in Jenks blue. Very prominent on the Aztec Eagle.

Lots to look forward to !!! Email Scott to get these cars offered !!!    
Cheers 😉

Hi Ricky.

I don't know if you saw my earlier post regarding Griff's similar issue but I had a similar problem and on Scott's advice removed the car ends and found a lighting plug had detached itself. Fingers crossed it'll be the same case for you!

Great posts of your Eagle too...much appreciated!

Best wishes,

Steve

Thanks Steve!

I knew I had seen someone post about having to do that. I hope that is all I have to do.

Glad you liked the video! Thanks for watching!

I'd love to have a business car in this paint scheme!

Hey a heads up for you MOP guys Berwyns Toys and Trains is doing a Jenks blue pair of MP GP-7s  by MTH. There will be two cab numbers available. They remind me of the ones I shot 8mm movies of in the 60’s. In fact i did an Athaern HO undec in that scheme and still have it. Anyway they are $579 - I’d  buy one for nostalgia’s sake but I’m kinda busted after the Eagle consist and I’m saving for the upcoming GGD T&P E unit. And April 15…

Thanks Griff. It’s just delivered so it probably won’t sell out that quickly. You can pace your savings 😉 …. and get past April 15 first 🫣😖

Cheers 🙂

Here’s a bit of fun 😜

This is a very St  Louis-centric image. Obviously a lot of MP.  We have the E8 (3rd Rail) in the lower left waiting for its Eagle consist (GGD) - lurking in the far background (includes NDM car).  The B&O Slumber Coach (GGD) has arrived on the National Ltd and is being moved into its place on the Eagle by a TRRA SW15 switcher (MTH RK). MP GP35s (Atlas) are just above the TRRA diesel, left of the GPs is a MRS MP15 (Atlas). In the yard tracks, one can find a visible MP box (Atlas) and a red-white Frisco caboose (Atlas). Toward the back MP coal hoppers (Atlas) are visible.  Very St  Louis-centric !!!!! Lots of Fun !!!  Cheers 😉

Time to stir the pot a bit !!!!! 😜

3FA94572-79D4-4A62-9A30-4D92C50664BCHere’s a nice “Eagle-centric” image.

Jenks E6, Eagle 5BR-lounge, heavyweight Jenks baggage car (custom).  
In case you’ve missed it in another GGD thread , Scott is considering doing a new run of heavyweights. MP, T&P should be in the run - hopefully in Eagle AND Jenks paint. Email him and let him know you Are Interested !!!

Cheers 😉

I must have missed that thread as I've been out of town a lot lately. Do you have a link?

FYI - few Eagle Sets and cars remain. 🫣🫢It’s Actually a bit less than what’s shown on the GGD webpage as I’ve picked up a 3rail TP 5BR- Lounge, Coach, and Set. I found two others to split the set with me. Splitting a set is a good way to add some extra cars. I was able to add some TP to my MP cars.
Just a reminder - car Numbers and Names for cars in MP vs T&P sets Are Different. And in each road, there were sets A and B. Names and numbers Are Also Different in A and B. (An exception being the T&P Dome car - there was Only one number so it is found in set A and B.)  

Cheers 😉
