I don't know.  Sometimes when I bring a dead engine back to life it's like Halloween, as in it makes me feel like Doctor Frankenstein.

And if there's a rip-roarin' thunderstorm goin' on it adds to the effect!  Lightning

Interesting, looks like HO.  I wonder if the Facebook page is connected with Model Railroading magazine?  

I could be snarky and say "HO=How Ordinary" but hey, we've got a big tent, there's room for everybody!

Pullmans are the basic black of model railroading.

They go with everything.

Agreed!  I've got a set of MTH Pullman cars just for that reason. Can't find a set of passenger cars to go with that outlier locomotive?  Hook some Pullmans up to it.

Adding REA cars to the consist is one way I lengthen the passenger train.  I like long trains!

For me, Model Railroading is all about Piddling,

Piddling with this,

Piddling with that,

Piddling around here,

Piddling around over there,

Piddling fixing,

Piddling running,

Just Piddling with everything on the layout. Wink
