Hi all,
Mark, thanks for opening up - I can't remember the last time I had coffee cake!
I think the Wet Coast is living up to its name, once again. Snow almost all gone and rain in the forecast for next few days.
Cheers,
Dave

Was wondering the same. I guess everyone gets burnt out from time to time. I certainly do.

Thanks for the coffee and cake!

Good morning to all....it's been a while since I have logged on to the Forum, and I can see there is no lack of activity. /you all seem to be moving along with your own projects.

As for me, I haven't been feeling well, but that hasn't stopped me from planning and doing some building on my latest mini-diorama (5ft x 18"). Now that I am home from the dreaded hospital I have to keep my activity level somewhat low, and that littlelayout will fit right into the time available.

Thanks for giving my interest level a new shot in the arm with the updates. Keep up the great work.

Bought the boss a Madeline pan and a couple of related cookbooks for Valentine's Day. Good move - I'll leave a dozen of chocolate dipped on the counter!

A little late for that coffee cake and if I have a cup of joe I will be up all night.

Rick, welcome back. Glad to hear you have improved enough to come home and drop by the lounge. You have been missed.

I'm still working on my Fast Track turnouts. So far. so good. Easier than I thought if I just take my time.

Well, its time for dinner, I will probably stop by later for a bit of a nightcap. Everyone stay well, warm and dry.

Morning All, I'll stoke the fire and fix myself a cup of railbender blend. There are assorted danish on the counter.

It's 28f here and fresh white stuff overnight.

We had a good turnout yesterday, let's keep it up.

Everyone have a great day.

Good morning all! Mark thanks for opening. Time for a bit of a break and some coffee. Bill, you bought your wife cooking implements for Valentine's Day! You're a brave man, indeed. Rick, welcome back. Jeff, good luck with those turnouts (not that I think luck is the largest part of the equation). It was a toss up with me - with only 7 turnouts to do, do I invest in everything to make those 7 (which would be a reasonable task) or just advance the build with ready-made ones? I went for ready-made but I like the idea of building my own.
Cheers,
Dave

Hi Everyone - It is almost 7:00 am Friday here at the Museum in Ipswich and again I have been lurking rather than posting. I have just brewed some coffee and warmed some croissants so please join me.
I finished my short (1 week long) holiday last Sunday. Raymond and I did some more cleaning up/sorting out in the T-Shed ready for the Tuesday Nighters get-together.
At least the constant hot weather has finished now after more than a month of temps above 100 F. The Tuesday Nighters enjoyed their visit and chat over coffee and biscuits. Darren discussed with me my thoughts of turning the proposed lower terminus of the track layout into a staging yard. The outcome was very positive. So this coming Sunday is set down for a determined preparation of this lower deck area to accommodate this staging yard (Denver??).
I have to start a 1:50 gradient from this staging yard around the walls before starting the helix to reach the top deck. I have recently been reading on another Forum about a chart or table to assist in developing an easement for achieving the necessary gradient. Could anyone here help steer me in the right direction for this information?
Tomorrow (Saturday) after Raymond and I visit my father we are going over to the Australian Model Railway Association clubrooms at Zillmere which is on the other side of Brisbane. Raymond has a couple of new 45 mm and 32 mm gauge steam locos to be boiler tested/certified and will have an opportunity to run them.

David, I'm always up for croissants! BTW did you get the snow I shipped out last week - ours is all gone now. As far as easements here are some links you can check out:
http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=27801
http://www.railroad-line.com/discussion/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=10531
I searched using Advanced Google search with railroad-line.com as the site to search in and typed "vertical easement". I find that search function the easiest way to navigate our forums.
Cheers,
Dave

Howdy partners,
Just back from Nashville sporting new boots and a hat. I heard some good RR songs so I put some JD out on the counter, enjoy.

Hi David Clark - Thank you for the snow but I'm afraid it melted and steam was coming off it as soon as I tried to use it to cool down.

Thank you for the links to easements - greatly appreciated.

I have been making bookings for hotels Pauline and I will be staying at when we come over to Denver for the 37th NNGC. This time we will be visiting the east coast for the first time as well. I booked a Hilton Hotel - Newark Penn Station in New York because I thought it was the Penn Station where we would be catching an Amtrak train to Charlottesville not realising there are two Penn Stations one in New York proper and the next one out is in Newark. I will have to change my booking to one of the two Hilton hotels near THE New York Penn Station this weekend.

It is almost 2:00 pm here and I can go home soon.

Best Regards
