Well it's Sunday evening and no one started the weekly show and tell thread so I guess I'll get it underway. My last bit on the GP9 project was to install buffer coupler plates and mount the Kadee couplers. With advice from a model builder I changed from the #30 series Kadee's which wouldnt fit no ways to a #5 Kadee. anyway here is the results. I had a rough time on this one. Not sure what I'll do for the rest of the week, as I have to get a cursed Olds ready for sale. I believe this thing was especially manufactured by GM just to torture me. Maybe I'll paint the loco for relaxation

An Olds! Cursed? Nah
What model and year? My dad and I have been working on his off and on a bit. We put a new trunk lid on a few years ago, and it was only on for a week before someone backed into it and destroyed it
. I've been finding parts here and there, so hopefully we'll get it all back together soon.
Anyway, the loco looks good. I have two project locos myself, but it's basically just re-decaling the name and adding some extra details. I'm not brave enough at this point to take a knife to them
. Not a problem in this case though, as they represent the local switchers just fine style-wise...just need a new 'sticker' job. Now all I need is an ALPS printer...
Well here it is an 1989 Regency Brougham 98, and after tomorow when I put a new battery in it $550 Cd. I'll be glad to see it gone. This thing has cost me a small fortune in parts. A prospective buyer came to see it and was interested but I wasn't home when he came. In the evening I went to start it dead battery and it wont take a charge. The next breakdown and it goes for parts. I'm fed up with it.
'79 Hurst here...classic (in the eyes of my dad and I, junk and a storage shelf in the eyes of my mother
). White and gold Cutlass with the Hurst shifter package...got some power
Naw! too new, yu'll have to go back furthur than that for a real car.
It's ten years older than I am, so to me it's a classic
Well I'm almost done painting my bedroom. There hasn't been much time to think about where my layout's going to be

The layout is the most important thing, you can figure the rest out later
