Looks like you could stir a lot of coffee with that bundle !
'Aunt Bee' huh ?
I trust she didn't sting your a$$ in the Dinero dept. !
Aunt Bees relative, 'Sister Sepia', at least makes me slightly less nauseous than the happy hawthorne R.R.s pavement-pizza liveries !
Those Updah loggers have got the right idea.
Ruin that Santa Claus special as quickly as possible, with neglect & corrosion for the 'ideal' backwoods 'banjoed boiler' look !
I kind of like Aunt Bee. I may leave her as a bumblebee.
The Hawthorne-liveried Moguls are all going to be blackened and corroded; pilots removed, etc.
I have one that is painted (black/silver) and unlettered, and one black/silver Colorado & Southern #22 which I like. The unlettered one will definitely be lettered for the RC&RS.
I think I may need a Mogul Parking Only roundhouse.
