 Donated S Gauge Rolling Stock 
The locomotives and cars shown here were donated to our club. None were in running condition when we received them. We gave them some new parts where needed and a cleanup and they are now running on our 6' x 50' layout. These donations are what prompted me to volunteer to add S and O gauge tracks to the former G gauge only layout.

transpixel C&NW real & model pacific loco.  This 283 was found in a box on club doorstep Aug. '09.  It buzzed but didn't run.  I sent it to Barb Rudnicki of Raleigh, NC who cleaned it up and got it running again.  It now pulls a train during our monthly 4 hour open houses. transpixel

transpixel RDG real & #21105 model Atlantics.  Reading owned only 4 of these engines, converted from poor running 4-4-4's.  Gee, we have 4 counting mine and the donated ones.  That's as many as the Reading had! transpixel

transpixel Shell #625.  Could this be a prototype for UTLX's Funnel-Flow tank design?  The warp on this car just happens to be symmetrical and about the same slope as a Funnel-Flow so I added styrene shims to the bolsters, changed one coupler to a knuckle and salvaged the car. transpixel
