I received two more tractors I needed today to pair all of my lowboys with trucks. I'm done for a while. I love the brighter chrome on the newer trucks.

Thank you. I have a Brother in Law that does wood working. Told Him what I wanted and He made them. I believe I bought the brackets from Menard's. Those shelves are on a dormer wall and work well for me.

Nice collection Craig. Ain't nothing like a Sword Pete. I am retiring, but will keep my Petes. Chuck is too dorky to do an Autocar anyway. Craig

What is your true hobby trucks or trains? Your collection of both is very nice. I’m also retiring like Quinella, but I will still be collecting just like Quinella.

Thank you very much. Well, my problem is focus or lack there of. My first hobby is 1/16 farm toys, I also have a couple of 1/14 RC semi trucks I have built, on goin process, As for the trains and 1/50 stuff that all runs together in my mind.

Claud thanks for the response. Those RC trucks are amazing, and your red Pete is very nice. I was thinking about trying out one of those RC machines, either an excavator or dozer they have on those RC websites. But I’m afraid if I tried that hobby I would go broke in about a month and be living out a a box in the back yard of my soon to be x wife.

Hi Claus, thanks so much for sharing your incredible collection. The two tiered shelves are a neat idea to display two rows of models. I have to agree with you on blending the O scale trains and 1/50 diecast I find they’re a very fun combination. That RC truck looks amazing as well, love the chrome on it. Take care and all the best.

Thank you all again for the nice compliments. This photo is not mine but sums up exactly how I see trains and 1/50 trucks or equipment.

Sorry, can't post those photos here. I tried but won't let me as they are not mine.

I agree with you 100% on this. They have always with me went hand in hand. Wish the amount of structures they offered in HO scale were more so added to availability in O as well. I had a representative from Walthers at the train show this past spring in Pittsurgh here tell me if I wanted something like they had which was a UPS depot I can go and make it. That is nice to know that the market is blind to the ones who work in O gauge.

one thing I would like to see is a gas terminal for O gauge or Fueling Bays for a truck yard would be nice to be used in a display. Maybe a few maintenance sheds. Sorry for getting off topic.
