Good morning all! Light snowfall overnight but it will stop by early morning, switching to rain. The coffee urn is READY with Pullman Porter blend. Spartan (Greek, not Michigan State   )omelet is today's special. It's made with Gyros meat and Feta cheese. Mmmm.

Youngest son came up yesterday, and we rooted around in the barn yesterday afternoon digging through my Porsche parts stash. He's restoring a early 911, and needed a pickup truck load of sheet metal and engine parts. You think old train parts have risen in price? WOW! He was a happy camper. I've paid less for cars that I drove for years than what a set of fenders fetch. While we were doing that, the printer was churning out HO pallets. Here is shot of a few.

a little acetone will clean off the 'fuzzies'.

A trip North to the Amish supermarket later this morning.

Have a Super day!

Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is 28 degrees under grey skies here in S.E. Michigan.

I should get some time in at the modeling bench today - unless we decide to ride up to Frankenmuth.

Have a great day!

Good morning, Jim, Bruce and crew. Jim, you need to start printing 911 parts.

The sun's out in Tidewater Virginia and a walk is on the schedule. I plan to spend some time at the workbench this afternoon.

Have a good day.

Good morning Jim, Bruce and the rest of the RR-L Crew. 30F out right now with overcast skies and threat of light snow and rain mix. Oh, Fun. Need to make a run to Kroger and pick up a few things as our oldest, Carl and his wife Carla are expected this weekend. There's a Woodworking Show down at the Fairgrounds and Carl is an dedicated woodworker so he can't miss it so it seems.

Otherwise I'd just as soon stay in. got our thermostat replaced the other day and the system is working great. It's a hi-bred that switches from heat pump to gas furnace when the temp drops below 40F. Then will kick in the AC when it gets about a certain temp. It was running a bit erratic before trying to run the heat pump when it was too cold to do so.

I'm mainly occupied in setting up new computers these day. I'm working on one for Mary right now then I have 3 older computers and a server to dispose of. Want to get them operational so they may at least be worth pocket change.

Everyone have a Fun and Safe day in the Train Yard.

Good morning Jim and crew, Portsmouth, RI is 35 degrees today, more closer to normal temps around here.
Like George said, you need to print Porsche 911 parts. Those pallets are great looking. I guess there is noting you can't make with those machines. You probably noticed that one of your wagon wheels that you printed for me is in my latest 2020 blacksmith car project build.
Hoping everyone has a safe and productive day ahead. I'm spending mine in the RR modeling room.

Good morning Crew from freezing drizzle drenched So. Wisconsin. High today may hit 34f degrees but still no sun. Latest prediction to see the sun is Sunday. Jim thanks for opening and all car parts are expensive. I handle the books for my brotherís Car restoration projects. He is a collector of cars and is now a Mustang collector. Porsche, Corvettes and now Mustangs all making our trains very reasonable.

Today is grocery, hair cut and a movie day. Enjoy yours.

Mornin' All!

31, overcast, headed all the way to 34 and blah here in the northern mitten today. As with TomO, maybe some sun on Sunday. Maybe. Whatever is dripping out there in the "cloudy" is coming straight down and is mostly wet, with just a hint of white.

Off to the oral surgeon in a couple of hours, and that will set the tone for the rest of the day.

Make it a great day, All, and stay safe!

Ditto here 30 earlier, going to 34 later. Still grey. Looking at the omelet Jim is offering, Iím sure there could be an MSU Spartan element to that.....you might Go Green! after eating that....

Speaking of green, I finally have a finished RS-36 sitting on the layout, it has the new version of KYSO green after the paint shop used up the last of the Polyscale Southern Rwy green. Now using Tamiya X-71.

Not sure on plans today, handrails for the other RS units are in the paint shop. Maybe Iíll finish them off.

Watched the movie HOOVER last night, sure didnít do any good for his image but it made the evening go by.

Everyone have a good day. Wow, 10:42 am EST there is a definite brightening to the grey! Almost like sun. but more a ďpigmentĒ of my imagination.

Morning everyone

Bruce did you just change your "AVATAR"?

Just noticed it really like the new one.

Jim, nice pile of pallets.

Karl, great paint job.

Jerry, since I never got a chance to really build the Slate Run branch in NJ, I decided to start with that in Michigan. The new avatar goes with that.
