Greetings All. Hope everyone has survived January's bout of "global warming"....more winters like this, I do not need. What started as a two week test of the Reading & Northern was grown into a Month plus due to weather delays and vehicle breakdowns. Currently the second oldest truck in Sperry's fleet is in Fleetwood, PA awaiting the THIRD transmission in two months. They just don't make Allison Trannys like they used to... What all this down time has meant is that we have been able to visit a couple of major train shows (Amherst, MA & Timonium, MD) and have a chance to visit with lots of old friends and meeting new friends. These shows are more of a social event than anything else! And a chance to obtain some interesting models like FL-9's and EP-5's from Branford (Ct) Hobbies. Hopefully, by next year, Searchlight Models will have the T-6 avail in HO....
Attached are a couple of photos from the two days of testing that we got in in the last two weeks!!!
