The life of a train nut. I sold off an identical packaged set of this same item in CN, and got a
lousy 10 clams for it. Like new condition and ran most sweetly. So, while I'm posting my
feeBay ad, I see this NOS in CP. By crimminies, I swore a blue streak that I would not
buy any more North American stuff, Tyco or otherwise, unless it was a one in a million.
So I put it out of my mind, but could not forget. Gave the seller a low ball offer that he
threw back in my face. Waited a bit, and sure enough he lowered it down another 15%
and I just couldn't say no. Sell one, buy another. I know, it's only rock and roll, but I like
it.

The only reason I thinned out my nice CN F9 was because it was kind of redundant. It wasn't
a great hauler, and I had a much stronger Model Power unit in CN and a bunch of CN cabooses.

I enjoyed some awesome years as a Canadian, and anything with a "wet noodle" or a "Pacman"
grabs my heart strings. Speaking of which, where you at Canada Mike? We need another
Mike Strike 'round here.

AAAARGH! The light is blinding me! All I can see are wet noodles and
bloody noses!

My SOTW will be the set of Santa Fe passenger coaches that I recieved from RP in a trade.
