Hi.  I'm Rick, and I am a Mogulholic.
I bought another today - D&RGW "Bumblebee" livery.
I need help...
Rick

Howdy Rick, I'm a Shayaholic myself. What do you need help with?

Woodie

Here she sits and waits for a Porter to clear the track beyond the switch.

I have already named her "Aunt Bee".

Eagle-eyed viewers may spot the bundle of lumber for benchwork in the background.  :glad:

Hi Rick :wave:

Looks like you could stir a lot of coffee with that bundle ! :shocked:

'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 !

:moose:

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.
Rick

As far as the sting:  It was a little more than the Hawthorne Village locos.

This one was around $60 US with shipping, appears to be new (no box - in molded styro, I assume from set break-up), and it arrived in three days from ordering!

This is one of the Moguls I've wanted since I started "collecting" them, so it's worth about the cost of a decent bottle of tequila, to me. :)

Hi Rick :wave:


The tight-wad accountants at Mysterious Moose Mountain figure that an Aunt Bee cab & pilot could be worth some DINERO ! in ol' Bachmann starved Blighty !

Good news, since at 1:35 Aunt Bees cab is a cranium crusher ! :shocked:

Gotta get back on my Mogul repairs, been busy on other stuff.

But time to think about a 2-6-2ST BASH !

Makes sense.
