Train Show, Trains

Wow, two months since my last blog post… been busy.


This afternoon I went down to Albert Lea, MN to setup a small free-mo setup with some people from the CenterTrak group. The show will be Dec 1st (9am-6pm) and 2nd (11a-4pm) at the Northbridge Mall in Albert Lea. Admission is free so if you find yourself in the area stop by and check it out.

Went to the Granite City Train Show ( today and came home with a nice Kadee boxcar with the cushion underframe (nice but plastic wheels?) and a used Athearn DM&IR hopper. That one is going to need some work as it had the wrong trucks on it and the coupler pocket was a bit messed up.

I also got ore loads for my 22′ Roundhouse Ore Cars from Motrak Models ( in the mail today and they look incredible! Unfortunately my pictures didn’t turnout very well and the batteries were dying so I’ll have to take new pictures but I figured I’d upload what I took. (I promise I’ll take new ones)

Update: uploaded new pictures.
