This will be my first time with building kits of this type.........should be fun. Hope they turnout well!
Bob, the Branchline kits are attractive and have a very nice look to them......though I've only seen them online. Let us know how you like them.

I will, though I don't know how soon I will get them built. The instructions don't look too awfully intimidating. Can't be scared!

As long as the instructions don't start with something like, "step 1: remove engine", you should be all right.

From my lovely wife two things I asked for, The house at 1313 Mockingbird Lane (Munster's House) and a Peter Witt Streetcar. Yes I've got a good one, met her when she was sixteen and I've never let go.

Nothing for Christmas, per se... but I got several good deals at a local train show about three weeks ago, and my lovely wife didn't chew me out at all, so I'm happy! :)

I bought a few B30-7's off of HOI if that counts and my wife bought me a Canadian Pacific wrist watch.
 
Got two lifelike kits from my aunt, a Kentucky Fried Chicken and Ace's Supermarket. Will post pics of KFC soon but it may be a while till Ace's gets put together. I was surprised by the quality of these kits. For what I generally expect of Lifelike products the KFC went together well and has fairly good detail. I was too lazy to kitbash it because I wanted to get it together and show her the result. Now to expand my layout to accommodate the thing!!!

Not really a train, but definitely a needed item., A digital soldering station, with 3 preset temps, and an adjusting knob for any other needed temperature. Also has a digital display of the temperature. Cool!

Almost forgot! A real good friend gave me a poster of the NS Heritage Units gathered around the turntable at Spencer. Gonna get it framed this week!

Nuttin train related here, unless you count those pictures of dead presidents I got with instructions to take them to my LHS and redeem them for trains!

Gary, you MUST post some pictures of the Munster house when you get it done! I may have to get one to put next to my "Psycho" house!:D

Karl - That may be a while. There's a long list of projects ahead (but it may bump a few)
I also don't have a spot for it right now. If you do plan on building it, you will need a good piece of property for it. It's large for a house, base is 10 X 6. Also it's not a simple build. I will post when it is completed.

That's excellent. B units are a rare sight for anything other than F units it seems.

I got one similar to that a month or so ago, a much needed upgrade from a battery-powered Weller iron. Wish I had've spent the money on a proper station in the first place!

Just the usual LUMP of COAL but this time I also got a very tiny sledge hammer to start chipping away on it to get realistic HO scale coal loads!?

Well, it could be worse!

I didn't actually get any trains per say, but I did get about $75 in gift certificates which I put towards my Athearn Genesis KCS SD70 ACe (which was pretty much all I needed to bail it out of the confines of the LHS!!! So happy! My wonderful wife let me have $100 a few weeks ago to put towards a matching 12 car set of new old stock Genesis trinity bnsf grain hoppers! I plan to sell some of my old stuff and use the rest of my Xmas money to hopefully score 15 more of these on yahoo groups! Even though I have to sacrifice some of the things I own now, I wouldn't have enough if it wasn't for my family! I'm very grateful!
