I’ve never been much of a beggar, but it doesn’t hurt to try something new at least once. I have begun a GoFundMe campaign to boost my train repair business. I have no idea if it will do much good, but the worst case scenario is I don’t make anything.
Still, I would like to point out that an engine can’t go without fuel, be it steam, diesel oil, or electricity. I have the skills, tools, and direction for success, but I have a long consist behind me. Getting started on my own without a little external push is going to slow and hard. Even the largest of engines sometimes need a little help climbing a hill.
Here is a link to my fundraising compaign. Every dollar helps, and I appreciate every cent! https://www.gofundme.com/livingston-lines
In the meantime, here are some photos of my latest aquisitions from the Plano Train Show.
I was surprised to find an official Nation Model Railroad Association theme set of locomotive and five passenger cars. Upon first glance, I thought the logo was that of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad.
The following photo is of an excellent visual comparison of the different scales. Bottom to top are: G, O, S, HO, N, Z, and T.
Train wheels are big……
