Hey Jerome!

I got one! I am however looking to get 2 more tank cars! :p

So ya evil bay prevailed lol😂

I got the tank car in a set of 4 cars. All for $25.00 dollars plus shipping $15.05 from Salem, Oregon.... I will probably keep the (2) B&M cars and sell the refrigerator car. If any one here wants it........it will be cheap!

So the search continues to get (2) more of these. Then I will be set for my Timken Distribution shop/warehouse.

I should have these by next Tuesday.

Numbers RBX #81 (metal), RBX #83, RBX #84, RBX #85, RBX #88, RBX #89 and #37259 TRB.

Let me know. If there is something you are looking for let me know as well. Thank you!

The Aurora & Portland shops and JTEX (Jerry's Truck and Electric) shop have located a few tank cars in salvage. One of them is a Timken tank car that JR's UPRR was looking for. So an agreement was made that included 4 tank cars. The delivery was a success and the A&P along with JTEX shipped them northbound. Shipment was received on Friday. JR's UPRR will be able to be able to make all 4 tank cars operational after a thorough inspection and some shop work. It was bargain to get the o'l Timken tank car for the Timken facility. This tank car will be used for transporting large amounts of grease for bearings that are sold and used on the railroad. JR's UPRR has obtained several dozens of 16 and 30 gallon drums for distributing out the grease with Timken famous bearing packages.

After further review 3 of the tank cars will be kept for use. 1 (the Wesson) will be chopped and salvaged or sold off.

Thank you to the Prez and owner of A&P and JTEX!

Well this shipment came in today. Pristine condition! All metal kits. Wow I couldn't believe it!

The refrigerator car is available if anyone is interested in it. All metal with pretty good detail!

So now I have Tank Car #TRB 7944 and #TRB 7949. I am in the hunt for (2) more then that's it on the tank cars for my Timken facility! just looking for a few more Timken box cars. I am unaware of any other HO scale cars that were made. I know in prototype they had gondolas. I may have to paint those.

It's been a while since I last posted on this forum... been a bit busy. I was able to score these 2 tanks cars yesterday on Evil bay in a buy it now sale. As these are definitely rare to come by or find. I didn't hesitate to pull the trigger. I should have them in hand by Monday.

Two new road numbers that I did not have too which is awesome! Very happy to get these!

#TRB 7941 and #TRB 7945

So now I have 4 tanks cars that will be on the layout servicing the Timken distribution center. That's a lot of grease! 😁 🤪 😂
