Just a few decals came today.
Hey Der Folks!
Someone should have warned me that this craftsman kit thing is additive lol. I was really wanting the Sigmon Used Cars kit, so I decided to reach out to Doug. He said he had an extra, and he would throw it in with my order, what an awesome kit company, and all around great guy.

It was the very intent when I started this thread was to see the variety of materials, supplies, products etc and where they came from and such. I wanted to do this for some time now...... well now here we are.....so you are very welcome. But really my biggest thanks to all the guys and gals that participate on this forum. It's always a pleasure being here! Keeps the hobby interesting and growing and learning.....Once again another supplier exposed!
I want to thank all you guys that share pictures of your latest purchases.
I like to scratch build and embellish structure kits. After a while you (me) get
trapped into the same suppliers, same vendors - same offerings, etc. I guess I haven't figured out
how to present my question in computerize... This forum has offered up several suppliers that
I've previously been unaware of. I'm filling my bins for winter time builds.
Sure, you betcha! I live near Lakeville, MN, and the old Dan Patch line. I also used to work in Lakeville's Airlake industrial park, home of the MNS successor Progressive Rail. I saw their switchers working the park many times.Steve: I saw in your footnote that you model the Minnesota, Northfield and Southern Railroad a line that most folks aren't too aware of the railroad and that it was once part of the SOO Line.
Those are nice I love PiggybacksSure, you betcha! I live near Lakeville, MN, and the old Dan Patch line. I also used to work in Lakeville's Airlake industrial park, home of the MNS successor Progressive Rail. I saw their switchers working the park many times.
Being that I model MILW in the 1970's with a focus on Minnesota, MN&S is right in my wheelhouse.
Anyway, I'm beginning to deal with this piggyback lot I bought up. I've sorted out the non-1970's cars and I'm slowly going through the trailers. I've added four more flats to the mix so I can start replacing what I've sold.
