On my Zephyr Rocket, I have all of the cars I need. One of my friends locally, Jim McCroskie (who started on the Q as a clerk), built the NKP Car Products kits I needed to fill out my train. In fact, I have enough for an excursion train as I have an Oriental Models 4960 Mikado with sound installed and the auxiliary tender. I just need to update it with a current keeper as it does not like my Micro Engineering turnouts very much when it comes to pick up.

Lenny is on the list. I just saw him on Monday and will again on Saturday. He is the regular dispatcher on my layout for operating sessions. Saturday he will be dispatching a D&RGW layout that installed CTC over the past 18 months. It's his chance to relive his days at Pacific Junction running the board!

I have only the single car road number the #85003. If you have any "spares" please keep me in mind!

Thanks and regards- Dennis

PS: Anything new with your Zephyr Rocket? How is Lenny Ohrnell doing these days?
