The O-Gauge Confessional - Pre-Holidays Edition

Forgive me Father YOJIMBO I have sinned. Not sure if this is my first confession or one of many. Too many lapses of memory to remember. I have tried so hard to just look at the new catalogs when they come in the mail  but each time I open one and flip through the pages I find myself buying again and again. I ordered a number of engines and good amount of freight cars. I called my financial planner and before I could say a word he said how much do you need for York. Am I that obvious or am I obsessed with the term "GOTTA HAVE IT". I need a sign...........Paul

Floated a trial balloon with the CFO about two weeks ago...said I pre-ordered the VL Challenger (I really hadn't at the time) to see what the reaction would be. When the answer back was positive, I figured I'd better order one for real...which I did. See you soon 3981.

 

HA! Might be...

YOJIMBO: WELCOME BACK!  ☺  Since you have been gone, I have sold all my O gauge, mostly to a local fellow TCA member, and got back into vintage LGB pretty heavy ($5000 and counting) and I thinned out my standard gauge "herd" to an MTH state set pulled by a Lionel Classics 2-400E and a 200 series work train that includes an MTH 219P motorized crane and three LCT cars pulled by an MTH dark green 408E. I am really rocking the LGB, which I initially got involved in with a starter set in 1978. I prefer the German made vintage production and I was fortunate enough to find a very reliable family-run supplier who purchases new-used trains from collectors. I have two high-end coaches ($350 EACH that are current Marklin-LGB Hungarian production and they both have ball bearing wheelsets, fully detailed interiors, and factory lighting and are 1:22.5 scale at 26" long! Wife approves and life is good! She even let me upgrade our home theatre system with a Samsung 4K Smart TV and a Samsung Ultra Blue Ray player, all connected to a Samsung 750 vacuum tube sound bar. The latest Xfinity DVR rounds out my mini home theatre and that upgrade was FREE! Life is good at 76 even having been on dialysis almost fourteen years now!  ☺

Nothing???

Really - after you recent posts regarding Fortesque and his scantily clad flat car floozies - NOTHING??? 

Lying in confession is reprehensible. “On your knees, harlot” *

My railroad has not run since late in 2016. The railroad has a short circuit somewhere that needs fixing. Also, there are about 20 Rail King locomotives on the railroad with run down batteries.

This fall I will correct this dereliction of hobby and get trains running on the railroad again.
