Saturday action

Burt and I decided to stop by the club on Saturday and Brock Nelson came in a little while later with his new toy. It is a beautiful Union Pacific 4-6-6-4 Challenger in passenger grey colors that they used in their operations to Portland, oregon.
It had DCC and sound installed and it was very impressive. It has a smoke unit but we could not figure out how to make it work.
The stuff they offer today is something to behold in detail and operations.  Those union painters are still not done with that paint project.
Bruce Butler showed up late Saturday and picked up this CB&Q that Jim Bowden installed sound and a DCC chip to make it perfect. Bruce has been allowed to run his NP Challenger on the layout last month and appreciated our friendship so he donated $50.00 to the club!
