That last AAR-STD was bought for me to assemble.

Good to hear about the trucks Sir Titan, I was wondering which truck sets I was going to have to adapt to these hoppers. I have a limited supply of Gold Coast's stashed. Best rolling truck ever made for US TT, hopefully your's will be their equal. :thumbup:

Oh, and I just lost my last dollar :lol: - the invoice wasn't included. So, I still have to find out the costs.

Sventton >> Sir Titan <<

Thanks for the compliment but, I've never been knighted ( although I was " crowned " once ) :lol: :lol:

>> Best rolling truck ever made for US TT, hopefully your's will be their equal <<

Oh! they roll OK. Just been doing a couple of tests with the German Mueller and Gold Coast wheelsets.
Started by elevating a piece of flexi 1/2" at one end. Fitted GC wheels to one truck and Mueller to the other. Both shot straight off the end of the track. So, unpinned a section on my layout in progress and elevated same 1/2". Both managed to do over 1.5m / 5' including going through a Tillig EW-1 & EW-2 turnouts, both set for the straight.

Modorney How much, and where to send the money?

Don't know yet as haven't got final costs. Contact Richard @ TT-west. By the time the shipment reaches him I should have the prices sorted out.

>> and Ian is packing up kits and trucks for loading on the next tramp steamer headed to the West Coast. <<

In keeping with a 60's theme - The shipment has been lodged with the local carriers who will expedite transfer to the fast mail train, leaving here at 10.30pm tonight. Arrival at the Sydney depot will be early Wednesday AM. Once sorted, will be rerouted to the loading docks. However, instead of going to White Bay for the tramp steamer it will go to Rose Bay where space has been booked on the next Catalina Flying Boat. This will then Island hop across the Pacific, refueling as frequently as possible before the main leg to Hawaii and then onto the west coast of America, hopefully, barring breakdowns, etc arriving some 10 days after departure, at which time Richard will open the champagne and celebrate the safe arrival of the goodies and then proceed to pack parcels for his multitude of waiting customers.

So, OK, the aircraft are a bit more modern these days but, it still takes 10 or more days to get a parcel delivered to the US.

No Champagne... Katalin doesn't let it in the house!
Port and Dark Chocolate (which she considers a valid 'food group'...) will be on hand...

Keeping our eyes peeled for the flying boat out in the Bay!
