N1GY- The simple Approach to Ham Radio

and My Model Railroad Hobby


This is the latest addition to the brass roster. I believe it to be an F-9 or F-7. This fills the third shelf of the display case. Time for a rest until March when I will start filling the fourth shelf.

One diesel, one electric and five steam locomotives. All beautiful in my humble opinion. More to come in the ensuing months and years..

This is the latest addition to the brass roster. I actually did not mean to buy it when I put in an early bid, in fact the only bid. I was sure someone would outbid me. No such luck! so now I have another 2-8-0. Luckily it is in good shape with only minor patina to be polished away on the tender. Below is an overall view of the brass collection as it stands now.

Well, that didn't take long at all. With the addition of the "Mother Hubbard" 4-6-0 in the center of the second shelf from the top that brings the brass collection to eight locomotives total. I have another one, a diesel F-9 on the way but the price was so good I could not pass it up. That leaves me 4 more slots to go and then I will have to think of something else to do with my time until the construction gets started on the new HO layout at the Real Rail club. 

The roster as it stands today, February 20th, 2021. One more shelf to go plus a final single loco on the top of the display case and it will be time to get back to ham radio for a while.
