Not all were purchased this year, some have been sitting around for a few years waiting for work to be done to them.

The roster this year has included a pair of 0-4-0s, some MTB SWs, a repaired Scale-Rails SP 0-6-0, and the beginnings of conversion from BTTB German outline to North American proto for a handful of locos, along with a pair of Tilligs.

CaTT and I are working on next year's (2018) TT Scale Resolutions.

The plan is for four of them, one to cover motive power, one to cover rolling stock, and one to cover buildings, and one yet to be determined.

Suggestions are welcome.

So far, I am thinking that 6 locos added to the fleet for 2018 would be a good start.

The 12th N/A loco is now being serviced back to running order: my large 2-8-0 made with some Tri-Ang Parts is being fixed up, and hopefully running smoothly soon.

Motor is running good now, just need to repair some of the valve gear.

Three more old HP steam locomotives are nearing completion of being restored to service:
A small 0-6-0, a 4-6-4, and a 2-8-2. (In order of nearing completion).

My second 4-8-2 is a little further off on being restored to running order, as well as my 4-6-6-4.

I am kinda surprised that my first restored 4-8-2 is able to run on the 310mm Tillig bedding curves as well as it is.
