I will start off this week with a Walthers Mainline Loco.

This is sound equipped and looks great.

That's pure brawn there, Ray!

I just picked up this Canadian Pacific Tyco 0-8-0. It's missing a few pieces as you can see but the price was right. I have all the parts I need in my parts box, I'll just need to paint the cab to match.

A Lionel 0643. It is a Columbia type 2-4-2 fast passenger locomotive. This loco came with a Pennsylvania Railroad slope back switching tender.

I got a parts loco laying around somewhere. It is yours if you want it.

EDIT:

it was the WP one

cool yes?

the way I feel about these Heritage Locos is that they would be a WHAT IF kind of loco
As in What if the line never merged or got sold off?

Course I would LOVE to buy a new real loco & do it up in The Rock & Route Rock on it
Yes I knows IAIS has one but I wanna do it in the Sky Blue & White scheme of the late 70s

I want that!!! Walthers makes that one too.

Yes I want a The Rock Model done as well. The white and blue is one of my favorite schemes.

Haven't posted a LOTW in awhile, nor much else. Been rather busy. Anyway, this Bachmann Hershey's Dash 8-40CW is my pick for this week, I just put an N sized decoder in it at work, will try it out tonight with my Bachmann DCC system, and reprogram it's number. I did that last night to an RSO Plymouth switcher, #5 Hershey. Trying to get my project list knocked down some. HOpe to get my Candy Consist going this year. Getting closer at this point, with the two engines now with decoders in them.

I has that loco too & will be searching for the rest of the cars
Don't forget to add the TYCO Hershey boxcar & the Peter Paul Powerhouse boxcar from Bachmann since Hershey's owns that label now

Nice looking locos! My goal is to get one of those Canadian Pacific 0-8-0's at a decent price.

Toptrain, how hard are those Lionel locos to find? I have a project in mind that would be awesome for that.

The Tyco Hershey car is a reefer, not a boxcar.

Very nice. Bachmann are easy conversions to DCC but sometimes the motors have hidden resistors and all. They run alot better in DCC once they are removed.
