New Locomotive and other things.
I hope that everyone had a good Christmas, I certainly did. The major gift that I received from my wife was a table saw. She got it at a really good price through Lowes, it is a Skil 15amp with a 10″ blade. It has a stand to bring it up to the correct height. One of the best things about it is that it stores all of the guards and accessories under the main table so they don’t get lost. Thanks also to my father in law for the help in picking it out.
I also received a small rechargeable drill, which will come in handy when I start on the scenery and need to drill a bunch of small holes.
Today I purchased a new locomotive, an Athearn Genesis Gp9 with the Tsunami sound in the Southern Pacific with the Black Widow paint scheme. It will be nice to have a diesel with a sound decoder, and even better is to have a road switcher than I can use during the ops sessions (correct horn signals, etc.).
