So what are you asking Santa for?

Have you been good boys and girls?
[My model railroad list is pretty modest this year - a pair of Accurail
Andrews trucks for a project I'm working on, and that's about it.]

I asked for, and will recieve next week, a Lionel CChallenger.
I saw one yesterday and heard the sound system. Very impressive!!

What if I haven't been good? Does that mean that Santa will bring me a live steamer to go along with the coal in my stocking?
What I want is the time (and courage) to begin a new layout after a 35-year absence from the hobby.
Man, it sure has changed over the years. When I was in the hobby before, Ed Suydam was importing brass models of Pacific Electric interurban cars, PFM and a number of other brass importers had big (usually full-page) ads in MR. The Kadee couplers were relatively new. N-scale was brand new. GE had just tried ASTRAK (an ahead-of-its-time precursor to DCC), the late Linn Westcott was still editor of MR, the two largest suppliers of superdetailing parts were Cal-Scale and Kemtron, well, you get the idea.
Any good advice for someone returning to the fold after many years away from active modeling?

Yes I have been. In your case, I figure you are due a unit coal train.

I would like time to work on all and finish all the projects that I've gotten started through the years. I guess I could really use a paint booth to help me clear the back log.

I asked for,(and will not recieve), an Athearn ATSF CF-7, which my wife ordered,(from an ad in the December MR by "firsthobby"),a few days before Thanksgiving. After checking the front doorstep nearly every day since then,(to see if the BROWN TRUCK had payed us a visit), my wife phoned "firsthobby" Christmas Eve morning to check on the status of her order, only to learn that they are expecting to receive their first shipment from their supplier sometime in February,04.Bah,Hum-bug! btw, the engine is still being advertised by "firsthobby" in the current issue of MR. rec.models.railroad

As for me. My sister asked herself, what can I get my Brother for Christmas? I know, a subscription to Model Railroader! She got a shock when Model Railroader said "Thank you, his subscription has been renewed." I said "Hallaluleh!" Don't have to worry about renewing. Something about "Simple Gifts" Paul
