You're a lucky devil if you get a freebie.

The one I ordered from Jin on the 18th showed shipped yesterday morning with an orangeconnex tracking number. I have faith this one will arrive in a timely manner.
you shouldn't have any problem with yours Benny.

I watched the entire video with fascination, a few things occurred to me ,1. that was sure a lot of work for what looked like a run of the mill tuba. 2.that brass really is thin. 3.whomever owned must have been a boy between the ages of 10-14 yrs old and 4.....they sure knew what they were doing, not at all gentle with it...but certainly got the job done as part of they're everyday work.

Bruce - I had the same thoughts.  I was waiting to see him break thru the brass, with as creased and wrinkled as it was.  A lot of just brute strength and persistence.  I was surprised that the magnet had enough pull to allow the ball to do some smoothing.  At least he was "honest" at the end and (even tho it had come a long way) you could still see where the wrinkles were.

When I started the video, I wasnt expecting to watch the whole thing... but I did.

Thanks for finding and posting Jim!!

8:00 PM has been and gone and no package - this whole deal is really strange.

Good, you didn't see me swipe it off your front steps  ;)  :D

Too many sheds around here already--and all full! My best bet will be to find some G-scale track.

Fantastic. Must be a load off knowing that chore is over until next season.

Wish I could join you all. Have a blast!

The drama continues. Just got another email from USPS that my package will be delivered by 8:00 PM today (my regular carrier has already been and gone). Looks like I might have an Eachine even after they gave me a refund - will be interesting to see what happens next!  ???

Hang in there, Gil. I think I speak for all when I say we will be here if you need us.

Just a reminder that the pumping station and railway will be open and in full steam tomorrow and Monday. Unfortunately SWMBO has over ruled me, and said something about family time 😀so I won't be running the trains, but I will be popping in with the family over the two days for my kids to have a ride and see the beam engine in steam 😉😀
