SP B30-7 7823 Arrives Today
New Equipment Delivery - 2-15-2017
The latest release of Atlas B30-7s include four in the SP "Speed Lettering" scheme. I could not be happier about this release as these locomotives were very common in 1996 and they all looked good! My normal supplier ModelTrainStuff/MB Klein did not have these in stock with sound so I had to reach out to another source. Trainworld has a couple in stock, so I decided to grab this model of SP 7823.
It just happens that a roll of film I recently scanned had a few images of the SP 7823 leading train 1-AVSRQK1-19 on the SP Lafayette Subdivision. I could not be more pleased to have found a home for this locomotive on my display case! I am certain that some of its siblings will be joining the fleet in the near future.
A couple of freight cars got my interest while perusing Trainworld's inventory, so they were added to this order. My freight car fleet is woefully lacking CSX cars, so I picked up Athearn 50' PS-5277 box car CSXT 142841. I think this is my first 50' CSX box car. Hmmm.... Need MOAR!
I also picked up the second number of the Athearn black-and-white UTLX Hydrochloric Acid tank cars, UTLX 802752. I had picked up the first number at Discount Model Trains several months earlier. Both cars will be right at home on the Meridian Speedway!
