Good morning crew from Columbia, Missouri. There is a Walmart here. OK, enough fun! The coffee urn is ready with Boilermaker brew. There's yuppie cups in the hotel lobby. Machine flippin' waffles, and hard boiled eggs. Day old bagels, and watery cream cheese. Mmmm.

Here's the bridge from friday...





2700+ feet long and just too wide to fit in the 17mm wide angle lens. I'll try and post a few more in a little while.

Have a Super day!

Jim

So there really is a bridge, lol... Nice picture, any plans to model it? Glad your trip is safe and good to see you creeping up on KC.

My brother called last night, he is in Arizona after a couple months in Europe. He asked where I was and said Austin. Is that on Route 66? Told him no, I cut thetrip short. He wants me to come to his place early he wants to get some financials in order. Asked if he was getting married again, I got a confusing answer. Told him its easy, give 60% to nieces and the nephew while he is alive to see the joy, keep the other 40 to live on and give it to charity when you pass. He thought all that was funny!

Sort of bored in Austin, even the pool water is too warm here. But while very beautiful, I prefer my landscapes back in Wisconsin. I am going to cut some plywood into 3 strips and then organize my sons shop. All in nice A/C set to 80.

Enjoy the day

Good morning, Jim, Tom and crew. That's quite a bridge< Jim. What railroad?

Just coffee for me, we're leaving shortly for Williamsburg for breakfast with our grandson and his girl friend. Not sure where we're going, but there are plenty of pancake houses there to pick from.

Have a good day.
George

Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is sunny and warm here in Kansas City.

After a day of meetings, we went to a Barbecue place for dinner last night. It was located in a railroad themed eatery, and we ate in an old heavyweight Pullman car. It was next to the BNSF double tracked line, and there was plenty of trains coming by while we were eating.

After that, we visited Stephen & Cinthia Priest's house to look at their layout. Some will know that Cinthia is the Editor of the NMRA Magazine and Stephen is the Editor of RMC. Their layout is Santa Fe based, designed for operations,beautifully sceniced, double decked, and huge.



Off for a little exploring this morning. Later this afternoon, clinics will begin.

Have a great day!

Sunny and warm, headed to hot this afternoon. After some chores this morning I'll tinker with the layout some.

I had a fine time at the ops session yesterday.

Everyone have a fine Summer Sunday.

George,

It's actually only 2,295 feet long and still active on the Indiana Railroad. I just missed the train by about 5 minutes.

Morning all! Jim and Bruce...some great looking images of bridges from both your trips.
Jim, my wife and I enjoy doing puzzles. If we took that lovely image of yours with all that goldenrod and cloudy sky and turned it into a puzzle...it'd be a darn challenge to complete! Hehehe!
Played with the band last night. A British Invasion theme with tons of Beatles, Stones, Kinks and Animals tunes thrown in the mix.
Will find some workbench time today as it is too darned hot and humid to spend too much time in the great outdoors!
Enjoy the day all!

In all seriousness that is a beautiful picture you posted. Google Earth shows a viewing stand, is that where your picture is from? That field in front of the trestle intrigues me, duplicating that would be cool.

Be safe

Good morning, everyone. Looks like the temps are starting to ratchet up. It is nice to see the sun for a prolonged period of time, though.

I started working on the steam pipes for the mine, yesterday. I am going to run out of pipe supports, though. So, that will be a future purchase. At least I have enough to finish the foreground side of the mine. But, I don't think I will have much time to work on it, today. We are out and about this afternoon before heading for dinner at the diner.

Have a good one, everyone!

Chuck

Any place that considers "80" to be "air conditioned" is not a place -I- want to live. We're having hot and humid in SE NH, it's supposed to get a bit cooler and drier by mid-week. Did I mention I hate August?

I painted 6 pieces of flextrack last night (after doing tie trimming, etc). I should do at least another 6 pieces. And then I need to get back to making HOn30 turnouts, it looks like there might be a problem with one of my FastTrack jigs. That won't stop me from making progress.

Normally I would agree Dave but its high 90s for weeks on end here if it is not over 100 a 20 degree drop is cold. I could never live here or Arizona (my next stop) full time and have explained that to my wife numerous times in the last few months. Nice to visit...

I did move to NH from VA to try to escape this heat. But global warming, or at least local warming, seems to have followed me up here.
