Mine arrived mid-morning, too. Thought it was due, but wasn't expecting it for a day or two yet.

On cost savings and eBay purchases, I've often found it better value to buy multiple/job lot items, particularly if they're to be used for conversions. Most of my Tri-ang Transcontinental conversions to On30 rolling have cost less than £5 each on completion, even after allowing for the styrene and other materials (coffee stirrers are free, not the price of the coffee!), wheel conversions and the fitting of Kadees. That looks pretty good alongside even second-hand prices for Bachmann narrow gauge stock, plus I get the enjoyment of the conversion work.

I also agree - look in charity shops. I recently saw a toy house in the form of a handbag with a handle coming out of the roof (???) but basically it was a roughly 4mm scale 1930's house with stone/brick ground floor and timber cladding above. True the window frames were slightly over-scale, but not badly so, and the price was £2.50. With minimal work and a new paint scheme it would have been a ready-to-go model and certainly more than good enough for a Junior layout.

Great to see 63rd street again; anyone know the origins of the factory/wharehouse (Building F) on this layout? Kibri or Joueff?

Hi Paul,
The factory/warehouse building was a Kibri kit. It was detailed inside with a scatchbuilt plasticard office and a Dapol platform. The photo's in the original MTI 3 article were a different set it the photo's in the latest issue and they show the building more clearly.
Incidentally, the Atlas NYC S2 shown in the photo's belonged to a friend and just happened to be running on the layout when Chris took the photo's. The loco's normally in use were a Athearn Baldwin switcher in CNJ livery and a Bachmann 44ton switcher in Pennsy livery, both more in keeping with the Newark NJ location.

Made it to Montreal yesterday….lovely issue..opening it to find our esteemed editors article on his small German layout build was a wonderful lookback to the early issues of MTI….as a matter of fact with the very international flair, UK,US,German and French subjects it really was an exceptional issue.
