Locomotive Giveaway!!!!!


Just kidding, I'm not giving away my GEVOs.  But, I am giving away an Atlas Union Pacific GP40-2.  Just a way to say thank you to everyone for following the blog.  The unit is about 10 years old and, to be honest, I have not run it in about 3 years.  I did test run it a bit today and it is operational, but probably needs a good cleaning and tune up.  The unit is being given away as is.  No returns!!!!!!  It does have Micro Trians couplers, the original case and, oh yea, an Atlas slow speed motor.  If requested by the winner, I'll send along the original motor as well.  No DCC decoder. To win the GP40-2 all you have to do is comment on this post indicating you want to enter the contest. No need to be an offical follower of the blog and no need to give me your address just yet, you can do that if you win.  The contest will run for one week with the winner selected next Sunday, August 8.  Good luck to everyone!!!!  Below are pics of the unit.

  18. I see a few old 40's doing UP yard shunting here in Fresno everyday. I hate the grafitti on them. Would love to have the old girl in my yard. I model SP so beware of a re-patch from UP to SP.

    I've had good luck with Adsense on my (non-mrr) site: www.AstronomyBoy.com. I've even made a few train purchases with the proceeds.

Best of luck to all the entrants... Did I mention it was my birthday this Sunday August the 8th...?
