 At the last train show in the start of the month along with the Gilbert 4-6-4 443, I got a Revell SW7 in Union Pacific paint. I got it because I had none for my collection.
  Not a good photo for the loco looks better than this photo shows. Outside of no handrails the body is very good.

Hello Frank....were these produced with handrails? I seem to recall that some manufactures released their models without any handrails....Tom

I added this locomotive which I got in a trade. When I got it the front pilot was broken and needed repair before it would run. I re-soldered the loose parts and though it runs now, I am afraid that any bouncing around will cause the pilot to break again. Got to look real good at it. Need to still raise it up slightly.  
** The locomotive is a 1966-67 Brass Akane C&O H8 2-6-6-6. I haven't taken a photo since it was repaired.

Here is a odd ball with a good road name. It is a all Athearn Hustler, painted and lettered "NAVY YARD, New York #51", done in blue. It uses the standard HI-FI drive, and has a Lionel L applied also. It is shown and listed in the 1958 Lionel HO catalog. And also listed in the 1959 catalog. I guess Lionel and Athearn had a arrangement for those years because Lionel also sold Athearn F7's HI-FI drive, Passenger and freight cars. All with the Lionel L on them. Another thing shown in this 1958 Lionel catalog is a all metal 4-6-2 pacific loco. It was made by Fleischmann. In Lionel's first HO 1957 catalog Rivarossi supplied locos and cars to Lionel for their first year in HO sales. The 3 steam locos were the 0-4-0t saddle tanker, the 2-8-0 , and the 4-4-2. Some of these items carried over into the 1958 catalog.

* Henry now you know the history of the piece. If you want to see and copy the catalog go to HOseeker/ Literature/ Lionel. It is in the 1958 catalog.

Here is a locomotive made by Gilbert that I had in the past but traded away for whatever reason. Well I found another one at the Hamburg PA. show 7-31-16. The locomotive # 31019 is made in New Haven by Gilbert. It wasn't listed in any catalog, or released in any set. It has a B&O road name and is the standard PRR style B6 0-6-0 switcher . Gilbert also made another 0-6-0 in number 31031, also in B&O.

I have had a Bowser Aerotrain for a few months now and the post for coupling it to the cars was missing. I played around with the idea of what I would do to replace this post and get the set going. I sat down yesterday and after a few trys. I got it done less silver paint. Here are some photos of the Bowser Aerotrain.

I received a e mail from my son and he painted and lettered a loco of mine for me. A Erie 2-10-2 R1 #4015. A 2-10-2 of Erie design. It is seen here on his layout.

Nice- complete with the correct (and relatively rare) Southern valve gear. The 2-10-2's were the only USRA class to use it, but I've never seen anything about why.
