Me, I'll be saving money all year long to get myself several of these:



I want to use them as my imaginary railroad's omnibuses...

I wonder how difficult they'd be to repaint and redecal ---

Considering I plan on buying a certain number of 'em, think Brawa might want to sell me some undecorated ones?

It's not so much a case of saving up for me. It's more of a case of finding the (&^^$* things first!

I need a Nord, 2 Digitrax DN141E2 decoders, a Glaskasten, an Edelweis track cleaning loco, a set of Kato Burlington Northern smoothside coaches, a couple of Southern Pacific Daylight coaches and a couple of other things that I can't remember at the moment.

Well, be sure to post when you're remembered those things uh?


*sigh* Those Brawa train sets seem to be going for about 320 EUR -- and I want at least 5 of 'em! Looks like I'm going to be saving at least 200 EUR a month!!!

Hmmm.....

I´m very, very, very actively considering a Gützold (yeah, I know - I´m hooked on their models...
) class 65 (East German version)


Picture taken from http://www.guetzold.de/38301.htm

a few Tillig double decker coaches for my class 146.2

maybe a few RailTop ÖBB coaches if I can get them at an OK price

maybe a Trix class 120.1 (if it turns out good)

.. and then, let´s see what Fleischmann announces!

Where do I start, well once I have paid of my existing traindebt I am thinking about a BR44 weathered by Trix



or maybe an AE 8/14 by Trix and also weathered.



A Roco Ae 6/6 would not go amiss



I'm probably due for an E 03 too, although am hanging out for one with digital sound.



I am mainly just waiting to see what new is announced for this year. Anything big or Epoch II usually goes down well. I'll have the Hornby DCC sound loco once I confirm that it is an ESU decoder, but not before.

...

Have you considered a HAG Re 6/6? I have two of them, and sold off my Roco.


(Picture snagged from tra-mod´s eBay auction # 290197753848)

This is one of the many engines issued by Hag, and if you check eBay often enough, you can get one for rather cheap (my Re 6/6 with "Bussigny" coat-of-arms cost EUR 159, incl. s+h).

Perhaps Kimbo you would like an account at the bank I set up specifically for my train related purchases?

Me, Just general funds to finance the items that turn up unannounced ao dealers stands at exhibitions. For example I am looking for another Rivarossi Royal Scot to turn into a Lord Nelson, another couple of Fleischmann Warships, a rake of Playcraft 20 ton Mineral wagons and as many Lima Mk 1 and 2 coaches, 12 ton box vans and 7 plank wagons as I can get my hands on.

Oh the joys of modelling British HO!

Regards

This year I will be saving for the much planned layout. A large attic area may shortly become available, and although I have plenty of rolling stock it doesn't currently do any rolling...
...and I will be wiring for DCC so I should really start budgeting for a thousand-and-one decoders! I'm quite looking forward to the challenge of benchwork, and while I know which end of a hammer is which my constructions always end up looking like a Escher sculptures gone mad - at least the trains can always be going downhill then!
