None of the above, all too dang big for my cheeky little layout. Personally I'm waiting for Bachmann's new revamped Porter, looks really cool.

   Have fun with your trains

I am also waiting for the porter too. Vsmith do you use R1 curves? I'm pretty sure the new USA Trains 0-6-0 can handle R1 curves and it should be a nice little engine. But it could be alot of money and a long wait.

Hello Pablopicatso, I take it thats your cats name. i just called mine Screwloose Hairball.

USA is making a 0-6-0??? [:0] I havent found any photo's of that not even on their webpage last i looked. I would love to have one, The biggest thing I can run is a Bachmann Industrial mogul , and that looks big. I want Bachmanns new Porter, should be real sweet. bachmann has posted photos on their website. Of course bachmanns Porter was supposed to out by summer, now I'm hearing November for release. Hope its just an ugly rumor.[:(]

Yep, I'm on R1's everywhere, layout is crammed into back of garage. Only place the wife cant see it so its OK there for now. Thats OK with me, get a chance to try that finescale stuff. If you can post some pic's or a link of the 0-6-0 alot of us would be greatfull[:D]

Heres a link to a site with pictures of the new items for 2004. www.san-val.com . Then go under train specials on the front page. USA is also making a SD70, a S-4 and some new freight cars. Yes Pablopicatso is my cat's nickname. Also I am having trouble posting a picture. I tried to copy-paste it but it wouldn't paste the picture. I tried saving it then posting it. So how do you get the picture from the web site to to post?
