" playing with controllers can be done later "

Hi Cor :wave:

Just in case it isn't obvious.
Playing with my trains NOW...
...means having controllers NOW, not later.

Since I don't have loads of boxes on the shelf, full of nice new 1:35n2 rolling-stock...
...the REAL priority at present, is to continue pushing forward with the car builds.
Buildings & structures are also a high priority.

Several new locos & mechs. have arrived at Mysterious Moose Mountain recently.
Also we have in the M.M.M R&D Dept. a number of 'custom' micro-motor gearbox assemblies under development.
These will hopefully find their way into 1 or 2 new experimental railtruck/railbus builds, which are also new projects.

My test-track layout has been under a bit of development recently as well.
Some new track has arrived, including A SWITCH ! ... Yep ! ... a 1 switch layout at present !
Lance Mindheim would be proud of it !! ;)

:moose:

Si.

P.S. Cor, I cancelled the order for the 'Diorama Debris' individual brick moulds.
I figured that casting 20,000 individual adobe mud-bricks, could be a bit of a diversion !
So it's back to BASHING the ol' swingin' '60s Airfix kit for now. ;)

Looks nice Si - what we can see of it that is! I see the slightly dodgy eBay one went for silly money to a last minute scavenger. I was wondering if you are on the trail of any of the others.

Hi Doug.
Well ... I went up to £0.99p on that one !
Nice of the seller to have removed all the DCC & sound stuff for the unlucky buyer !
Oh ... He did leave the speaker in ! ... Probably worth about £0.10p I imagine.
I guess it may have run perhaps, but could be a case of not 'run in' but 'run down' & worn out !
I paid, inc P&P, only £10 more, for a brand new one, looks like it never saw a rail in it's life.
I did actually buy an HO Bachmann G.E. 45-Ton the other day, from a dude in Nashville !
Difficult to come by those in Blighty as well.
It was new & unused, and an acceptable price I guess, the 'Global Shipping Program' didn't help much though.
It might be here tomorrow, quite small I think for 1:35n2 perhaps.
We'll see, It's hard to make a real assessment of something, until it's sitting in front of you.
:moose:
Si.
Now, as for that 2-4-4-2 mallet I'm dreaming about . . . :bg:

Hi Doug :wave:


I think you're right Doug, that 'scavenger' got a minger, I rec.

Careful what you say though, about the idiot who paid 45-quid for the Mogul with the clanking mech, last night on eBay !
You might offend someone !! ;)

:bg:

Yep ! ... They call us TWO Moguls Mountain these days.

Fingers crossed, there was A LOT of reason NOT to go for that hulk on Sunday night.
This lil' baby could be a winner though, I fink.

With 2 Moggys on the table & a serious case of MOGUL MADNESS...
...It looks like Hank Hatchet in the M.M.M carshop, might just get to clank-up that dodge mech. a bit more !

:moose:

Si.

I mean, honestly, a pair of Bachmann tender trucks inc. P&P will cost yer 20-quid.
That's IF you can even find anyone with them in stock.

So minus that, and a 5-er P&P
I figure I got a tank-loco BASH victim, for 20 squidleys !!

Let's hope she aint a woofer ! ;)

I couldn't believe the price paid for the "non-runner" when I saw it this morning but then I suppose with enough ingenuity - or should that be engine-uity - you might get it going without the clicks! It's otherwise a pretty robust mechanism.

Good luck with yours Si. Post progress on the build - it'll be interesting I'm sure.

Hi Doug :wave:


I have got to like the 'original' Mogul quite a bit, in the last week or so.
It is a bigger than the Shay & Porter for sure.
But 'upscaled' to 1:35n2, it does have the kinda size that some of the Glover Machine Works engines had.
Kinda cute !


I have to say, that with a TON of car builds still underway & other locos to mess with, another seems crazy.
But I never seem to have a clear idea of what I'm aiming for anyway.
Things sit on the bench & get 'looked at' until someday BINGO ! whatever the idea is, clicks (not like that mech !).
So 6 months down the line, I guess my research & imagineering will know what to do with her.


I'm thinking for No.2 though, that a much shorter 0-6-0T sans tender is what I'd like to aim for.
