After 62 years the set is complete.

Post  rsv1cox on Wed Nov 04, 2015 12:04 pm

I bought my first SBJ  (the red one) when I was about 16.  62 years later the yellow one (bringing up the rear) arrived.  The other two sandwiched somewhere inbetween time-wise.  



All but the yellow one has been run.  It's amazing just how easy they start and how well they run after all these years.  Lot's of SBJ's right now on ebay.

Thanks guys, but I don't think my camera or photographic skills are up to the task. I always look over the engine of the month photos and vote. Some awfully good pictures are posted there.

Congratulations, Bob. Nice little display.
I agree, those are worthy of a run at the EOM, give it a try some time.

I like the one on the train, go for it in EOM you will either have the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.

Thanks again guys, But that's just me "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles." I never could make up my mind which one I wanted to follow as a hobby so I embraced all three.

I am actually old enough to have travelled behind a Boston and Maine Consolidated steam powered locomotive between my home in Raymond NH and Boston Massachusetts riding coach on hard wooden seats. Discounting more recent travels on the Cog Railway in Mount Washington NH and the excursion logging railway in Cass WV. Both steam powered of course.

I may just rearrainge the locomotive scene a bit with some snow, buildings, and a Santa and post it sometime in December. Smile. Bob
