I don't like trains but I really like seeing your set up and pics. Very impressive!

A lot of places, you can find them at train shows, but there are many retailers around, in Japan, we have 1999.co.jp. If you want to order closer to home, I know that MB Klein has them in stock in at least N Scale, he's (well, rather they're) based out of Maryland:

you sure? the taiwan high speed rail one is becoming rare no doubt but you can still find it. the other ones should have plenty of stock. they are sold by a company called TouchRail.

I think these answer your question, B-16707:
Stockholm Trainspotting part 1(2012-04-20) - YouTube
Stockholm Trainspotting part 2: a Norwegian visit(2012-04-27) - YouTube
Stockholm Trainspotting part 3: Mupping around(2012-04-29) - YouTube

I apologize in advance that there's no original sound. Windows Movie Maker removed it for some reason.

Now THAT'S what I call a train!!
I know it isn't a Centenial (or whatever they were called) but how long is the model out of curiosity?
You see, most north American locos tend to look the same to me (not actually true, I know before anyone points out), so I appreciate things like this which have a bit of character about them, and what's more, it's a 'leccy'!

Anyway, thanks for that.

It is a nice looking locomotive.I was immediately drawn to it when i first spotted it.
The model is around 11 inches long.It is really heavy as well.

If you want a real rail related post, then I'm currently posting this from the bog of a Cross Country Voyager between Berwick Upon Tweed and Morpeth.

I like trains, too! Well, who does not? They are like planes without wings but on tracks!!

Mainly US-themed western railroads. SP and some neighbouring roadnames.
Sadly, I do not have enough room for a layout. I plan on building some modules (in fact, the modules themselves are already done for some years...just missing the layout on top of them).

I came across a complete 11 car set of the Californian Zephyr made by Broadway Limited some months ago and I recently got my hands on a nice A-B-B set of Western Pacific FP7s. Yay!
I painted the interiour and seats etc. What a pain...but it is an awesome train.

Some of my treasures:

Weathered Atlas GP40


Brass GS6 Warbaby with Tsunami decoder:
