Frank, with your delayed reply I knew something had to be brewing. Sounds like the crowds were mashed in there to see and try things out Proof you all done good! Good to hear.

Frank,

Sounds like a lot of work but also lots of fun. I enjoy the kids at our club open houses in particular.

Mike

Bill, you still have it, good job.

Mike, itís a give back to the community. Well worth the expressions on the kids faces. I was surprised to see how many little girls want to run the trains.

Frank,

Girls dig trains. They clamor for the throttles on our club timesavers. They also generally beat the boys in their engine handling skills. It's the parents that 'don't get it'.

Jim back when I worked on charter sport fishing boats guys would ask who's the better "angler", men or women. They would look shocked when I'd tell them women. Because they have the patience to work the fish and not muscle it in.

My observation working with boys and girls ice hockey teams was that the parents would ensure their sons showed up for games but not so much commitment for daughters. That alone sends a message to the child.

Frank,
Great interior photo filler for your distillery...Add some little people in front of the photo and it will be a well discussed building. I also like the composite of shapes on the structure!

Frank.
Great work on this structure. I like the many sides and great stonework. You're doing a fine job. Can't wait to see more.

Pete you should know, you sell them. When my granddaughter was 3 she loved playing with her Brio wooden trains. Then she discovered the iPhone. Sheís 12 now, so keep them away from the iPhone as long as you can.

Thatís a sad message Mike.

Thanks Mike, it was all Jimís fault.

Thanks Dave, Iíve added 3 guys like you suggested.

Rich, I made a tank out of a piece of thin walled 4Ē PVC but Iím having trouble calculating the lengths of spiral stair stringers going up the outside. The first set of stairs I screwed up but now I found a program to calculate spiral stairs. Maybe Iíll have better luck now.

Yes, indeed it was a great open house. We had over 700 visitors between the two days. The O-scale switching layout was indeed a hit, a line most of the day people waiting to make a few switch moves under my direction. I agree, the girls loved it and did as well or better than the boys. Here are few pics.

Tim built a water tower from a kit and worked with Dave to weather it and add some additional details. The transformation has worked very well and we found a spot to squeeze it in between two tracks!



This is how it looked before details and weathering.


Here is shot from left perspective after detailing and weathering.
