Good morning all, from 30f going to 42f N.E. Indiana. The coffee urn is READY with Railbender blend today. The special Bacon and eggs, toast, and grits. Other bevs..oatmeal pot at the end of the line.

Well yesterday was a total zero in getting anything done. Multiple pokes, prods, labs, waiting, more labs, etc. Probably a higher risk of catching something than walking unmasked at Walmart. Anyway, nothing scheduled today, other than some bench time and picking up some tractor gas later.

Bruce your Granddaughter's action photo looked great!

Have a Super day!

Good morning Crew. So. Central Wisconsin is at 29f degrees heading to a balmy 38. No sun though. Thanks for opening Jim and the breakfast smells great.

I did set up some more framework for the layout. Now I will start using the new boards for framing. Terry thinks I should setup all the framework for the layout and then go back and add the foam, cork, etc... She says I work better with a goal and dates in mind. I am still undecided.

Have a great day

Good morning Jim, Tom and the rest of the crew. Cloudy skies here in S.E. Michigan with temps (current and future) matching Jim's over in Indiana.

Thanks, Jim. She has another competition today.

I spent some time at the modeling bench yesterday. Some photo updates on the Challenge project later today.

Have a great day!

Good morning, Jim, Tom and crew. We had freezing fog this morning, whatever that is. It's supposed to hit 50į in Tidewater Virginia.

Nothing on the schedule today. Since the weather is nice, Pat wants to go to one of our outdoor restaurants for lunch today.

Have a good day.

I got a haircut yesterday and went to the 'gourmet burger' place next door. Not dead yet! Maybe I'll generate some steam to work on the 1 stall switcher shed. A couple days ago, one of the walls fell off the workbench, and I started to crush it between my knees. I think it's fixed and still usable. Tom Sawyer at work!

Good morning folks

It is a brisk 32 going up to 43.

Carried most of the Christmas decoration bins up to the attic and organized them. Still have a couple to go that have to wait for some other items to be brought up before they can go in place. We gave the dog a quick bath yesterday. We need to find a groomer that will take a blind dog. So far we have been unsuccessful.

I weathered the two RF&P Atlas Trainman grain hoppers and the Reading Athearn Heavy Duty Flat Car. I did a test of the Krylon Flat Sealer on the Proto 2000 CNJ caboose and a couple of Accurail cars I got off eBay for a few bucks. It seemed to work fine. I will try it on the Proto 1000 100-ton hoppers I weathered the other day. Next up for weathering is the Intermountain grain hoppers.

I got an email from my online dealer about the PRR DD-1 I reserved. I was excited as I knew the locos had arrived at the manufacturers from the factory. I am thinking this is the invoice for it. I opened the email and found a copy of a letter the owner sent to the dealers. There were fingerprints and other marks in the paint on the bodies. The bodies have to be remade. I have been waiting for this loco for three and a half years. Now looks like at least another six months.

I am supposed to have a package delivered today. That leaves two packages still out there from December. Both are in Philadelphia. I ordered a couple of more things in the last week so we will see how long they take.

I found a source for some Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines decals. They are for RDCís, Cabooses, and Passenger Cars. I think they should work on the undecorated Athearn blue box GP-38-2 I have. I am looking to get a second one soon. PRSL had GP-38ís without dynamic brakes so I need to find non-dynamic brake hoods to replace the hoods on the loco I have. I need to investigate what the difference in appearance between a GP-38 and a GP-38-2 is and whether or not I need to make any adjustments. Maybe the GP-38ís or upgrading the RDCís with decals can be part of the challenge project.

I have to run off to the grocery store in a few minutes.

I hope everybody has a good day.

Good morning, crew. A clear 35F with 45F expected later in northern WV. Walking the rail trail has been cold these days, but the river (Monongahela, ďMonĒ for short) is very pretty to walk along. Various shades of crystal blue and greenish blue, contrasting with browns and grays of trees and dead leaves, dark green rhododendron and bright green Christmas ferns.

Iíll probably do more ballasting today while in the mood.

Have a great day everyone!

Good lunchtime, all. The NH seacoast is overcast and high 30s just now. My transparency film arrived yesterday and I've been able to print out my Venetian Blind pattern. Photos will follow when I try it on my building's windows. I've also researched a large purchase (for a modeler, 16 sq. ft of each) of styrene and acrylic sheet. The Laird Plastics distributor in Lowell will have it ready in a couple of hours, I'd rather make the trip than test packaging vs. delivery personnel for that distance.
