    This week I rebuilt a couple of junk Bachmann GP40's. Nothing special there. I also mounted Athearn diesel horns on four GP40's, a FM H24-66 and an FP7. Here's the set on the FP7: And a set on one of the GP40's:

    Here's an F7 I just repowered. The shell is 70's era Mantua Southern Pacific F7. It's on an Athearn blue box drive.

    I found this in a box of grain elevator parts I got from a modeler up north. It looks to me like one of the old Woodland Scenics metal structures. He says he put it together around twenty-five years ago so that would explain why I can't find a reference to it online.

    Coffe Shop XXXIV

    Well I decided that since I was up I'd open a new coffee shop. I got a little sleep but not much. Below is a photo of the paintball impact area after I cleaned as much as possible out of my hair and changed my shirt obviously. It was a very bright red paint. A partial bruise can be seen forming...
