It's nice rediscovering lost treasures Roddie.  

I remember (and recalled here once before) when I went looking for my small box of Cox engines (Space Bug Jr's) and could not for the life of me find them.  Went on for several weeks until I thought, maybe I covered them with furring strips and paneling when I remodeled the basement in Tiverton.  Sure enough, I removed two sections of paneling and found them stuck between the foundation and floor joists.  

My model airplane engine obsession occurred well before I discovered model trains.  Don't know what got me started around 1960.  Christmas probably. Tables of Rivarossi's at department stores.  

Not familiar with Model Power, don't have any but have heard of the brand.  Got a couple of Mantua's.

Your last picture convinced me that I should paint the trucks on my latest Athearn silver.

Let the paint dry and reassemble tomorrow.

I tried to bush the driveshafts (right one pictured) but the side wall on the tower is just to thin to drill out. To bad, that is a major wear point on these and you have to be careful with grease on the shafts.

Media blasted the frame and painted it gloss black, trucks silver. Cleaned up the drive shafts and corroded wheels on the wire wheel.
