Well I certainly won't be buying them, they don't qualify, I've never seen them in real life, I've never ridden behind them.

At least the snow blower exists, I've seen it, I've ridden in front of it and I've touched it.

Well the missing Golden Spike locos are on the website, sort of.

Sit down first ;)

No seriously sit, no hot drinks . . .

Are you ready?

Yebbut, wait for it, these are only models of the replicas that were prepared for the centenary celebrations - I have a book that tells me a bit more of the locos' histories. Neither were at the original golden spike ceremony, and I don't think either of 'em were 100 years old at the centenary. One came from the V&T via Ward kimball I think :think::think::think::think:

I'll dig the book out :nod::nod:

Well at least the blower was a niche and very different model, more in line with the Aster and other specials like the Meyers of old.
The Classic 4-4-0 would surely have made sense in the main range too so this just seems odd. Maybe they can do a ‘budget’ plastic version in a year or two for €800 ;)

I was slightly adrift - the Nevada Central's #5 was re-painted as the CP's Jupiter while Nevada Central's #6 stood in for the UP's #119

‘Unfortunately this product is no longer available’ when I clicked the link, they could at least have left the picture to see what is not available. But looks like they may have sold them, must be lots of cash rich collectors out there in Trumpyland. Though not working for the State at the moment me thunks.

I don’t think it’s even been on yet Jon, it was showing that when it appeared. Unless there are 250 people dotty enough to spend 8 grand on something they haven’t seen.


Oh yeah silly me! ;)
Well, someone was prepared to spend £69k on some broken glass :rofl::rofl::rofl:
