Rob
Have never liked switchbacks because they waste time & space for railroads, both real & model. Changed yours using a Xing to make both spurs usable for industry spots. If there are cars on the first part, they have to be moved. There is enough room to do it with no Xing but both spurs would be shorter.

That was Rob's original plan without my revision. But now can't put my revised plan in. Aren't computators great!

As for government workers, they'll do ANYTHING just to justify their job. Dealing with one agency where a letter is sent in December from another agency, won't be accepted it because the date is "too old" even though that letter is only sent ONCE a year!

Andy,

Sorry bud, it is not my design.

Here's some food for thought for you though: As a Letter Carrier I hate delivering flyers, however, if you ever want to get a true feel for my job, you can't eliminate the things that you don't like (it ain't all fun). I know you are quite aware that switchbacks were used on railroads, so deleting them isn't giving the true picture of what the job entailed on a everyday basis. I can't see the point of doing that (it ain't all fun).

Take care,
Rob.

Andy you’ve totally lost me as to what you are talking about but thanks for the comments?#?$?%?

You tell him Rob. WTH!

Thanks a lot Bob.

Thanks Larry.

Wes, it’s a joint project so that takes a lot of pressure of any one person.

Jerry, be patient grasshopper. You should talk about being late in posting.

There’s a ghost tug boat in our future. It appeared in an aberration today during a test fit of the carfloat and gantry system. Since adding the seawall next to the float one of the base supports for the gantry does not fit anymore. Saturday the demolition crew will have to make room for the base.







Dave bought this Dumas 74’ ST tug boat and I've been working on it over the Labor Day weekend.

Frank just posted the shots of the phantom tug and car float. We are making some progress on scenery and buildings as well. Here is my progress so far on the seven-story brick warehouse building. About to add the returns and then start detailing the brick. Dave has also been working on laser-cut brick building under construction here as well. Jon has the base paint coat on the water area and is beginning to detail out the rocks and some vegetation.

The tug looks good next to the car float and the rest of the scenery is coming along well.

Great progress all around! Is the ghostly tug a friendly one?

Bob, I’d like you to stay tuned but for greatness . . . debatable.

Dave, thanks. I used to have a ’57 Chevy Bel Air hardtop with a “wonderbar” radio.
Ah the memories.

Jim, the 7-story will be a centerpiece when finished.

Ted, I’m choking on light cords.

Jerry, thanks.

Bill, I must have read the response 10 times and I just can’t find the pun.

Mike, indeed she is friendly. The name will be “Phantom”.
