Thanks, guys!
Hopefully my article will appear in RMC soon, I was told it'll likely be at the end of 2020 or start of 2021. Haven't heard confirmation yet.
Trainmasters is supposed to run a segment of video on my layout maybe next month.
Once dates are known for sure, I'll post them here...

I added a new gas pump at the Grindstaff store. It's a very small detail but I found a very good looking model of the right Texaco brand pump for normal leaded gas that would have bene in use in rural areas in the 40s.
It's 1/43 scale so it's a little bigger than it should be, but these pumps were very tall in real life, so I think it works well.
It only took about 20 minute of weathering (dry brushing and washes) to get it to look right for the location.
I got a second one, but ethyl gas pumps were yellow and I can't think of a way to paint the other to a authentic looking yellow without ripping off the excellent decals already on this pump...

Like many (most?) of you, my layout has been sitting idle for most of 2020. I had an op session scheduled when COVID wasn't on anyone's radar in the US yet and found it conflicted with another one I didn't know about, and nobody signed on. Then the pandemic hit and all I got was emails from people saying, "I wish I'd signed up then..."
Here we are, several months later and no end in sight. A friend of mine yesterday on the phone mentioned coming by 'sometime' and running trains. I didn't have the heart to tell him there'll be no op sessions for a very long time.
This thing isn't going away soon. The earliest I'll have an op sessions will be the summer of 2021, and I don't expect even that to happen.
I hear it all the time now, "I can't put my life on hold like this..."
YEAH, you can, and you're supposed to.
I had to study infectious diseases when I was my unit's Nuclear/Biological/Chemical officer in the Army (among my many extra duties) and I already had an idea what was coming when COVID got a grip here and it became clear how virulent it is...
So for now, I run trains myself from time to time for the heck of it, keep adding trees and details (because you can never have too many of either) and taking new angle photos.
