Bob,

As Ernest Tubb sang: "Tanks a Lot!"

Hope you're on the road to recovery. We went to see Star Wars while our kids were visiting on Christmas Day. We also saw the new Quentin Tarantino film, which was a little like when I'm using my XActo knife: blood everywhere.

Mike

Bob,

I'm back to working a little on my machine shop and have been rereading your machine shop construction thread: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=30407

I noticed that you used Tyvek for the belts. Do you recall where you bought sheets of this material?

Mike

Thanks Frank. Summpter Valley did the basic designing. I'm just tweaking it a bit to fit the architecture of the stations they'll serve.

Tanks back at ya Mike! The Paper I used for my belts was kindly given me by Anders C. Malmberg who bought it in a Stationary store in Sweden.

Don't get too tanked Bob By the way they look great!

Yesterday I saw the new Star Wars movie for the second time with my kid. As I don't particularly like episode I-III it has been a long wait since Return of the Jedi. Well worth waiting for though.

And one more time, Tanks to you Håkan!

And I've yet to meet the person who particularly liked episode I-III. But, the light sabre play was the best in them.
I think these new kids will get the hang of it by the next one though. Sure hated to see Hans go. This was a good start I thought to some more fun.

All I can say is they've gone way beyond DCC.

Hi Guys,
Two weeks ago my Mom had a stroke so I haven't had much time to play with the trains. I did test my new engine and I did do a little on the water tanks, building the spout holders;

Bob,

Sorry to hear about your mom. I sort of thought something had happened, you were quiet for a while.

Nice to see you back at it. Congratulations on your new locomotive.

Mike

Bob, sorry to hear of your Mother's CVA. I hope that her return to a normal life style occurs quickly. I know that this type of issue can have a huge affect on the surrounding family members. Best only to you and yours during this tough time.

Kris, Thank you very much. I do appreciate your warm wishes, I really do. My Mom is getting better. But when you're 92 nothing happens quickly.
At least she can still read and that is her favorite thing to do.
