    The fact that the window sills have been cast/molded to be concrete, helps with making the internal walls not look out of place.

    I have two, very similar to that. It's definitely not a Norscot. The ones I've got were produced under the Trucks'n'Stuff label, the same #972K. Several features distinguish it, Now it is produced by Diecast Masters, at an increased price and comes in a fancy tin instead of a card box with...

    Adding LED's to Athearn Blue Box GP's

    Nice and bright. Actually, I wish they had retained the BB models lenses for their method of transferring light. It also lights the number boards too. On the Athearn SD40 from the later model I referred to, and Genesis ones too, they use grain of wheat bulbs for each light on the ends of wires...

    My attempts at weathering

    Dry brushing with oils? When I've tried it I tend to forget to wipe off the paint in the brush to a minimum with predictable results.

    When you see his front, it's scary 'cause you know he's coming for you. When you see his back, it's usually when you're on yours, and he just ran over you. If you can see it then, at least you're still alive.

    If there's several bidders, they get up to a figure fairly early, then stop. Nothing happens then till the last minute at the earliest, The last 10 seconds is when it gets serious or not. That's when you put in your max bid a take pot luck.

    I bought a couple of Bachmann MRL gondolas because they had scrap loads included. They were almost all bits of steam locos and the castings were short by about 3/8" overall. They had filled the space left at each end with bits of black foam. This was definitely NIB, because I've seen others the...
