Yesterday I got my first American locomotive - HP Consolidation steam locomotive, ready-to-run. I am quite happy! :dance:

Unfortunately, the security service in airport did not like it :( They were sure it is a terrorist threat! :shock:
(Of course... something electric... wires... and a coal! It's inflammable! :shock: )
So it came with a broken chimney and front couple. :(

But it runs well and I glued сhimney back.

Also I continue to collect TT cars (I mean automobiles). I got Tatra-111 truck, Volkswagen Transporter T1 mini-bus, BMW-340, and also some cars in "wargame" 1:100 - such as Russian ZiS-5, and American military GMC, Dodges and Jeep.

I think that would be AWESOME!!!! What a scene it would be - a dual main line with NA and Russian proto trains passing by each other.
