I got this brass locomotive from another friend...

...who had asked if I would be interested in it.  I countered by asking what he wanted for it, to which he replied, "Are you interested or not?" 
"Yeah," I replied, "depending on what your price might be!"  "Geez," he countered, "do you want it or not?  I won't sell it to you!".  "Alright, I'll take it!".

As with most of my model railroading friends, I enjoy being able to help them out, and they, in return, are ridiculously generous.

Show me more gifts from family or friends, please.

EDIT:  Oops!  Guess I was a little slow with my input.

Here's one of the EG&E's wreck cranes...

Please show us some more MoW equipment, please.

I have 12 Kadee PS-1 40 foot boxcars painted in this scheme for the STRATTON AND GILLETTE.

.

Sorry. Due to space limitiations of my 30 inch square diorama board, you will need to settle for only five of them.

.

.

Show me another rural structure.

Sure does, Kevin. Those overpasses were quite common in the period. I kind of wish the design didn't have such sharp angles on the approaches, although I have seen some steep ones like my model shows. I would have modified it if I were making the kit today.

I believe it is a RIX Products kit.

Carry on, folks!

Its been more than a day since BATMAN requested 'old-time gas pumps.' Here is the Texaco Station in Black River with its 1950s-60s pumps.

More gas stations, please.
