    My Challenger back.

    Glad your son is okay, one tour of Nam was enough for me, can't believe guys serving 7-8, hope they are still sane. I'm not.

    Ray updated my Challenger to PS 3 and enhanced the smoke and sound. First test run was great.

    New Daylight Coaches first run.

    Did not see this till now Mike. Just a piece of 14" plywood with a piece on each side of the bottom to clear the tracks/ties. Couple of uprights that I connect with a piece of dowel. Stirp of wood down the center of the top a little narrower than wheel spacing. I sit it on the track and pull the loco out some to rest on the cails a little, then Pull out the carrier. I don't roll it all out. On the Daylight you have to be real careful since that front piece sits so low. I screw some velcro strips on at key positions so I can strap it down without damaginr anything. Used to use little bunji's but the velcro works better.

    Al Kramer said they have not been made for a long time. Mine is holding up well.

    I hire a lot anymore, if I can afford it, if I do too much the wear and tear on the old body is not worth it.

    I prefer the clamps that SVRR sells. Fits between the ties real nice, hold up for a long time. I find the split jaws a pain they way they are always rotating around. They do have them for code 250 I know. Check Reindeer Pass.
