OK- nobody got what was wrong with the picture. The steamer in Dribbles mouth is a CAB FORWARD. Note that the tender is mounted in FRONT of the cab.
With all the members coming on line yesterday, I figured someone would get it. Rob Kluz figured it out last time.
Doesn't anybody want to just have fun.
I give myself elleventyseven points
Save it for your birthday and suggest, if she hasn't already found you a present, that she could give the Santa Fe to you To tell the truth, Dear Husband Chris and I buy our own Christmas presents, give them to the other person to wrap, then put them under the Christmas tree. At our ages, we forget what we bought and it's still a surprise when we open the gifts
Ok- I'll save the NEW Santa Fe for my birthday- ( I just have to remember where I hid it). Now I got to get something else nice for her on Valentines Day -- maybe a new ax!
I was taking the picture behind the camera- They wouldn't let me drive the train- though I've "driven" multi$$$$ ships around the world.
Beverly, I haven't seen the "bumble bee" loco for sale for a while now. Brand New I think you are looking at about $235. A good used one should be around $200. As for room smoke. This is plastic and metal. I think any smoke smell on the loco or tender itself would be short lived outside of that evironment. Also you could carefull wash the item as well. If it comes in a cardboard box, toss it and keep it in another container. NewParagraph. Even though Marklin marketed the "bumble bee" as Z scale it is NOT. It is actually a bit larger, something on the order of Nn3. The next scale up from Z. It will probably work for you. I just thought you should know. Cheers, Jim CCRR:)
I'm glad everyone here is so great about pointing out the details. I assumed the "bumble bee" was Z scale. Nn3 is 1:160, then it's N scale - only it's narrow gauge N scale
Okay, I love that train, but it's not for me being narrow gauge N plus I've accumluated a few Z scale cars and a locomotive already. Darn. Dear Husband won't be thrilled to hear about this development, but it'll be worth talking to him about it. Maybe we'll do a second layout in a some sort of case with the oval track that came with the 8188 Starlight Express Fun Set But then I'd have to do all kinds of research for narrow gauge railways. I'm not even close to having a theme for my Z scale layout yet, except that it's going to have the trio of half timbered houses made by BAZ. And maybe a castle if I can figure out how to use the scaling features of MS Visio.
I've sent you an email. If you don't get it for some reason, you can go to my website that is listed in my signature and email me from there. Thanks
Oh, no! Attack of the dinosaurs! Yes, I know what's wrong with this photo. It's too easy.... Marklin products did not exist at the time of the dinosaurs. Marklin is only 150 years old this year - hopefully, anyway - and dinosaurs are much, much, MUCH older
