  1. I picked up a few new buses along the way.. Here is the link to the rest of them.. http://s226.photobucket.com/user/Retarded_Myke/library/All%20The%20Bus%20Lines%201%2087%20Scale?sort=3&page=1
  2. :eek: You are correct... i'll change it...
  3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1sbMjsLMPw&feature=autoplay&list=UUDnjTZxTzplMM11gVrQ6few&lf=plcp&playnext=1 There was a pop up from SEPTA over the weekend as well...

  5. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04gNE-OgTVY&feature=g-upl&context=G2b5ebe3AUAAAAAAAEAA In this video above you have a southbound Keystone train headed to Harrisburg on track 3, followed behind that train is the southbound Amtrak Crescent on track 4 with it's final destination being Florida. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oj5CZZwbDGI&feature=context&context=G2b5ebe3AUAAAAAAAEAA Here you have a northbound Acela Express on track 2 with it's final destination on this day being New York. It took me FOREVER to get these videos posted.. I couldn't transfer it from my iphone to my computer so i had to break it up via e-mail & send it to Youtube that way hence the videos only being 1:45 long. Each year i normally pull out my trains & give them a test run. I figured i'd give a mock up version this go round with buildings in the background to make it more realistic. I hope that you enjoyed i have more i will add later.
  6. More... More... More.... That was HOT... I want to see more pics of the MU..
  7. Darn i just pulled all of that stuff up yesterday... i am working on NJT, but will do... The LRV is just a plastic model & the trolley pole is missing from when i moved. I'll snap more pics for you tomorrow & post them..
  8. A friend of mines painted them for me, he did my Metro-North RDC units as well..
  9. i sure will.... i was laid off so it set me back a little bit, but i need 2 of my New York City 1:64 buses brought to life.... :cool:
  10. We took a tour inside of the Callowhill Ships in west Philadelphia. I just happened to know someone who works for SEPTA which is how I was able to snap pics inside the facility. Here some buses and trolleys await to be repaired. Outside the shops buses layover when not in revenue service. This baby operates on the Route 15 trolley line. This bus was given a little color to make it look more modern. To the far left if an older bus still in service. Entering the Callowhill shop. Here is a link to the rest...

  11. One of the NJT backing out getting ready for revenue service... Here on a Sunday, most of the slots for the New York City buses are empty. Normally during rush hour this is not the case. Passengers can wait up from up to 10-15 mins before arriving and departing from the station. Here we are on the 1st level of the terminal. All of the Greyhound, Trailways & various buses operate. NJT & New York City buses operate on the top level. The buses of the Big Apple. I will take more pics tomorrow, probably get creative & add some more stuff to it. Hopefully this year i will be able to purchase another digital camera so the picture quality will get better... Here is a link to the other pics..

  12. Could you make my 1:64 Scale NYC bus model like one of them in the pics..
  13. So over the summer i purchased my Amtrak tickets way in advance because they are cheaper that way. Anyways a friend of mines passed away so I ended up getting a ride back to Philadelphia that same night instead of next day travel from Baltimore. I called the reservation agent before i left making them aware of my situation & then I had to come back to Philadelphia right away. The agent told me my ticket was good for a year & that it would be no problem. Fast forward to Christmas weekend before. So I called to confirm that my ticket was still good and so forth. I spoke with another reservation agent, they told me to "sure no problem." They set everything up, so when I get to the station that Fri to exchange my ticket the man told me I would have to pay an additional $74.00 :crickets followed by a blank stare: I explained to him that the agent Wendy told me over the phone that all I had to do was arrive an hour early & i had my reservation code & so forth & switch out my ticket... WRONG. So i ended up have to pay $50.00 on top of the ticket & ride an unreserved coach down to Baltimore, so i was fit to be tide. (Originally i had a Reserved Coach). Now my gripe is say I didn't have the money to ride down to Baltimore i would have been in trouble, so I am forewarning you if you get a ticket & don't use it, you STILL have to pay a whole fee for a new ticket & the old ticket only applies as a discount towards the current ticket which will cost you an arm & a leg. Long story short get your damn money back for your ticket if you have to cancel because you will be screwed in the long run.
  14. A New Year is upon us so i am wondering what new projects do you have in store for yourselves & the board. I hope that in 2012 i will see more amazing pics of your trains & buses because they truly inspire me. I will soon began my focus this year on double stack cars, Amtrak Superliners, more auto racks, more structures, more people, more tracks & maybe some more Amfleet coaches from Bachman. I would also like to grab 18 more RDC units to be converted over to Metro-North later on down the line. Lastly i want to buy 5 more different train stations so when i set up my mock stations i can take lot's of pics. What's on your agenda for 2012 ladies & gents.
