Good morning everyone.

Reg and decaf coffee are ready, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Pepper too.

The promised Nor'easter is here so it's rain all day and temps in the 50's.

Nice find Jerry.

Not a great day on the RR yesterday.
Got bumped off my morning job again, so it's back to nights for a bit.
There are a few morning jobs up for bid this week and maybe I'll get lucky.
Also, on my go home home train last night our engineer ran a stop signal just before we got to Trenton.
Waited almost an hour for a relief crew to come and bring us into the station.

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Good morning folks,

Coffee, tea, and Dr Pepper are on the counter.

Breakfast is simple today: scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, and toast. Butter and jelly on the side.

I'm off to my Mom's 91st birthday party. I'm taking my 89 year old uncle with me. It's a five hour drive, but that will give us lots of time to catch up. So far, 65 people will be attending, so it will be like a family reunion.

Have fun and stay dry. Looks like lots of rain in the north east.

Mike

That sounds like a trip to the principalís office....the engineer in big trouble Iíd imagine if they have to re-crew the train.

No Noríeaster here, just nasty wet cold rain. Perfect day for my injury decimated SPARTANS to take on Purdue still at full steam after literally kicking ohio state right in the nuts err....buckeyes, last week.

Iím going to work on the layout today. Iím redoing the dcc power routing, breaking it down into districts with NCE Current limit lights board. I also rewired the power out portion of my dcc power supply. For some fool reason I had used telephone wires to bring the power from the transformer out of the box to the NCE Powerhouse DCC Command box. I now have 16ga stranded wires.

Enjoy the day all.

Late afternoon

Weather is still lousy in South Jersey cloudy/53. With the wind still blowing.

Rick sorry to hear you got the boot again!!

Well anyway I've been fooling around at the bench today. No pictures just playing around.

And the bar is open I'm having a glass of the McKenna Bourbon on the rocks with a splash of water.

If your around stop by. Later we might have to start the firplace to take the chill off.

Reg and decaf coffee are ready, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Pepper too.

Clouds and mid 50's in Joisey today.

Mike, wish Mom a Happy Birthday from us.

Karl, running a stop signal is an automatic out of service and decertification for 30 days.

With the new job I start today it's TGIF.

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Weather in South Jersey cloudy/54.

Heading to the beach to see how much damage was done from the storm...

That was a quick turn around Rick!
I didn't realize they that strict with running a light.

Everyone have a great day!!

Well hell there's no one here since early this am.

I've been fooling around at the bench with windows and doors! But nothing to show for my efforts.

Bar is open I'm having a McKenna bourbon on the rocks with a splash of water!
Maybe Rick will get here seeing this is his Friday again!

Rick its getting hard to tell what shift your on anymore.

So stop on by and have a friendly drink with us.

For all of you in the North East, stay dry.

Free Rum if you enlist.

Rain continues. We took in the Trainshow in Kízoo today for an hour then 3-4 hours of antique stores. Lots of stuff at the show little incentive to buy. Saw a few buds and was impressed with the size itís become. Theyíve apparently run a coin show out that used to share the place and added a room.

Howdy folks,

I'm back home from Oklahoma. It was a very nice birthday/reunion party. I am so full of good food.

Sounds like everyone survived the weekend. I'm going to bed, I'm tired after the drive.

See ya later,
Mike

Good morning everyone.

Reg and decaf coffee are ready, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Pepper too.

Mostly cloudy and temps in the upper 50's in Joisey today.

Mike, welcome back.

Karl, good news on the show.

Larry, good job on the figures.

Jerry, the engineers are responsible for getting thousands of people safely from point A to B.
Running a stop signal and possibly derailing or striking another train and causing injuries or worse to those passengers is considered a very serious error.

I've got to bid a couple of new jobs in.
Really hate the one I'm on now.

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Good morning. Rick thanks for getting us going. Tough luck about your job. Does merit go into these job bumps or is it strictly seniority?

Dreary morning so far in So. Wisconsin and the TV weather guy just said we wonít see the sun till Thursday. Instead of the fitness center because there is no wind I want to walk outside. Itís 40f degrees but the wife is thinking. Have a great day.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for the coffee. Hope your new bids result in a better job.

Monday, so need to start folks with a full belly:
Biscuit split open face, covered in crispy hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, chopped sausage, and country gravy. That should last until noon.

Nice weather here again today.

Have fun,
Mike

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for the coffee.
Hope you find a better job this time around.

Mike thanks for the breakfast. Glad your back safely!

Larry the figures perfect.

Weather in South Jersey sunny/52. Might make 60 later on.

Not sure what were doing today. But later on an hour or two at the bench.

Everyone have a wonderful day!!
