I just picked up some pink, dark pink, dark red, and dark green bricks...so I'd like to use those, but I don't want to force it.
Oh, and I love the dark green coloured pieces. Think I'll have to order up a ton of them and use them to MOC a modular.
Hope you like!
^Yes it was your positive review that made me take a swing on it. Happy I did.
Also waiting for my birthday to build #7775 on my 1st day off to myself since June.
@Adzbadboy - If you're bored you don't build an old set, you buy a new one. ;-)
Great jog though.
For added realism :))
What makes Souhtern Pacific #4460 so unique is that it pulled the final movment of steam on the Southern Pacific in 1958. The engine was donated to the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis Missouri on April 16th 1959, where it sits today. The only surviving cousin of this engine is the streamlined (& slighlty larger) #4449, which is better known and actually runs. That's where the 4460's nickname of The Forgotten Daylight, comes from.

I plan on building 4460 next month, with the Aerotrain sometime next year.
(This model was delveloped not by me, but by a Brickshelf user. I recreated it in LDD from three pictures.)
The Aerotrain was a 1950's failed expiremental General Motors product. It had a severly underpowered engine, used hard-riding bus bodies for cars, and had problems with matinence. Only two were ever made, and the Rock Island Rairload bought them in the mid '50's and used until 1966. One loco and two cars were given to Green Bay Wisconsin's National Railorad museum, while the other engine (and two cars) were given to the Museum of Transportation in Saint Louis, Missouri, where they reside today.
Here is the Aerotrain so you can build your own:
and B- understood what I was doing!
At least it was something different.
orderrequest from the kids was for a monorail, so putting together some Hidaka-style monorail tracks to see what sort of PF powered unit we can run on it.
