Price with DCC and ESU sound was $170 but is now
$155 delivered to USA addresses

as I was taking pictures to sell I broke the engineer side front step railing

Delivered by USPS priority mail with insurance and tracking

Hands shake too bad for me to repair the railing and I am going back to 4 axle locomotives

Nice runner

Unfortunately I've just bought the SD60 from PMW, so my train budget's gone for the month, otherwise.......?

Thanks for looking. It maybe still available as there seems to be no interest. I think it’s priced ok.

Yeah, nice, I've been looking for one of those, seems I'm collecting more than using at the minute. But I'm
waiting to see what the import tax is going to be on the other one first, think I worked it out correctly.

Tom: The BNSF color scheme is my favorite of all the Roads. My first DCC equipped locomotive was a BNSF GP38-2 loco and I still have it today and it runs perfect.

The loads you made for the gons is far better and more prototypical than Chooch.

Thanks for the compliment Greg. Not seen the Chooch loads and I read somewhere Walthers purchased the company and product lines.

TomO: Yes, Walthers did purchase Chooch. I model ore cars after I watched a 100 car unit train of ore cars running on a modular layout at Trainfest. The surprising thing was that the layout was unattended and the unit train ran flawlessly by itself. I was hooked. I stood there maybe 15 minutes and watched that train.

I am working on my fleet of ore cars and have approximately 60 of them completed. Each one has a Chooch load and I attach Woodland Scenics ore on top of the Chooch loads to make them look more realistic looking. The cars are weathered, have metal wheels, KD couplers. I started with a Walthers' set of 12 UP ore cars and moved up from there buying ore cars whenever I saw them on sale or even in Walthers' four pack sets at a premium because they were patched for the CN&W. I never kept track of how many I had until I did an inventory of my rolling stock and I have over 300 ore far more than by original goal of 100! I can't even run a 100 car unit train on my layout much less have the room for 300 ore cars.

These cars are heavy and I ran a unit train at the C&NW Historical Society Meet many years ago on our club's modular layout ans I used two Atlas MILW U-Boats to pull the train. Poor choice to have MILW power pulling a train at a C&NW function, but no one noticed or said anything the MILW locos.

Chooch ore loads were hard to find for a while and I purchased as many as I could find where ever I located them.

Sounds like my pulp wood cars. The goal was 24 and then I had 30 after Thanksgiving. This mornings USPS delivery brought another 12. Total so far is 47. I have been weathering and then selling. I could get a few more bucks by including the pulp load but I haven’t found an easy way to build the loads. Surprising to me, the more difficult ones to find have been the Wisconsin Central ones.
