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.
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.
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.
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!
