    Jim's on the road, so I'll open. Today's coffee pot is full of "Oil Change blend" with the light turning yellow. Breakfast burritos for a change, with english muffins (does that make us multicultural?)

    Another perfect early fall day here in SE NH. Today's priority is to trace and resolve my home phone wiring, then a store run, and finally pick-up/put-away in the train room.

    Good morning everyone.

    Dave, thanks for the coffee and breakfast.

    Weather here in SD: A 30 percent chance of showers, mainly before 3pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 63.

    Visited Mt. Rushmore yesterday and the Black Hills Central RR.
    I'll post the RR pictures here in the next day or two.

    Have a great day everyone.
    Follow along as my dog and I travel the country in our van.

    Good Morning All,

    I got the signal issue resolved yesterday with the help of LRT, and son mounted my 3D printed dwarf signal on the wall ( he has longer arms).

    Today I start soldering resistors on the wire leads of a 2 track signal bridge.

    Good morning once again Dave, Rick, Curt, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up the lounge Dave. And with the coffee. We just have to get that Coffee, it is the best way as we all know to start off the day.

    53 degrees, and raining here in Rhode Island today.

    Finished and posted my latest project yesterday. We'll have to come up with something new.

    Everyone have a great, safe and healthy day. I'll see you all on the RR-L Forum.

      Good morning. Thanks for opening, Dave.

      It's a cool 46F and cloudy here in northern WV.

      I'm going to have a busy day with haircut at 11AM and club layout construction in the afternoon. Probably no time for a walk. I'll be working on a design for the club's N scale layout this morning. People sent ideas and I'm incorporating them into a single plan.

      Have a good one!

        44, overcast, and rainy still......2 cups of tea later and I'm for finding the blanket and going back to bed.

        But I'll probably camp out in the recliner with a book until my GI tract figures out how to return to normal. Made the mistake of working on the NMRA stuff yesterday and after reading the lovely emails sent my way my stomach revolted. I'll need today to recover.

        Hope to get into my shop to work on a few projects later today; got that funky bathroom light fixture to take care of - new bulb arrived.

        Maybe spend some time scanning in articles from 50's copies of RMC...........sigh.

        So it goes......

          Nice day in day Yoop. Sun and some color.
          62 degrees in Gladstone.

          Internet is broken at Northern Command so back on cell/roam. About to can the system at the swamp.

          No big news. Quiet at the lake.

          Be well all.

            I got the phone lines sorted out, so the kitchen phone actually rings on the home phone number...
