Just a quick one this morning, though I hope to have a longer one sometime this afternoon or evening. Anyway, as a reward, yesterday my so nand I went to a train show - model trains, where people have set up layouts, and are selling old (ie, used, sometimes abused) stuff. The son is really into model trains, and I like working on layouts, which are basically wargaming terrain that never actually suffers the abuse of being played with.
Anyway, for some time, I have been looking for a cheap, O-scale steam locomotive. (Warmahordes players know why.) To date, I have had no luck. Or rather, I have found plenty that would work, but I just did not want to pay $40 or $50 for something that I would have to convert and would only see play in a fairly small group of scenarios.
But yesterday I found a nice O-scale loco and tender for only $12. So I snapped it up, and tonight I plan on making some sketches and working out how I can fit it into the Iron Kingdoms milieu. I have the loco, I have the plasticard, and I have the superglue. I can rebuild it, better than it was before. Better, faster, stronger. Or something like that.
