  • Sunday morning brunch lounge

    Good morning all! Yep it's 0230, and the coffee urn timer is set. It'll have Torpedo blend in the to go cups ready, when you are. The crew van is cleaned up and will be shuttling over to "The Greeks" for brunch. Probably will take until later this morning to clean up the restaurant as the baseball games ended pretty late. G;ad to see the Phillies and the Padres in the NLCS matchup. GO PHILLIES!

    See you at The Greeks, in a little while.

    Take the red pill

    Good morning everyone.

    Jim, thanks for the coffee and the ride to The Greeks.
    What are you doing up so early?

    Weather in Garden City, KS: Partly sunny, with a high near 67.

    Football Sunday and I found a brew pub earlier in the week where I'll have lunch and watch a game.

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

    Good morning. Jim, thanks for the coffee etc.

    I've been on the road for several days, first to see my brother in Vermont, and then to Keuka Lake for my wife's family reunion. We head back home tomorrow, probably stopping to see my sister in Canandaigua, NY.

    Obviously, no model train activity. Nor have I needed to mow the lawn, feed the cat, and put out the garbage.

    The weather is nice, forties up to sixties. Some of us guys are off to the Curtis museum in Hammondsport this morning: airplanes and motorcycles. Should be fun.

    Have a good one!

      Good Morning All,

      Had a great time yesterday at the show and later at the birthday party. Today is some chores then unloading the wifes car. Later a couple of things in the train room.

      I hope everyone has a good day.

        Good morning once again Jim, Rick, Mike, Curt, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up the lounge Jim. 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.

        56 degrees, and partly sunny for the day here in Rhode Island.

        Seems to be a slow day for me today. Too much partying for me yesterday.

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

          Good morning to the entire crew. It is 45 and heading to 55 here in S.E. Michigan. The sun is currently shining.

          The next few days should be rainy with high temps in the mid-40's, so I need to get some outdoor work done today.

          Have a great day!

              Looking for a 2nd cup of coffee to get me up and moving.

              Yesterday was a long day - 5am on the road to Strasburg; a day selling (best sales day ever!), and the longer drive home - that last 15 miles around the DC Beltway on a Sat afternoon is straight out of Dante's Inferno.....but made a little less painful be now being able to listen to the football games on Sirius.

              Now it's sort out the leftovers and pack them away until the April shows. and a trip to the bank tomorrow, Rest of the day is R&R, some reading and writing, NMRA clinic on Zoom in the afternoon, and just maybe some football to nap out on the recliner.

              So it goes.....

                Mornin' All!

                45, grey blanket, off-and-on leakage, headed to 50 and generally bleah here in the northern mitten today. Had a very nice sunrise lighting up the west side of the Bay this morning with dark water below and dark clouds above, but it disappeared into the grey blahs as soon as I realized that it was camera-worthy. Such is Karma.... Gale warnings for the Big Lake later on, with gusts to 40 kts and 13-ft waves predicted, but they don't use Karl's favorite "S' word. I'm OK with that.

                Good day to contemplate getting the hoses in if it stays dry, but mostly to see if I can find the bench and do something amusing at it. Make it a great day, All, and stay safe!

                  PERFECT fall weather in SE NH. After some morning fog, nice and sunny, leaves are at their peak.

                  I did a bit more pick-up/put-away in the train room, and test-fit a structure behind the NG roundhouse that I think will find a permanent home there. I bought some shoe racks to use to store structure models when they're not on the layout. That's always been a problem for when I'm working on things, no good temporary place for the buildings.

                    They fit underneath the layout :-)

                  Good morning!

                  Blowing out the sprinkler system and winterization projects outside and working on the railroad on the inside are the orders of the day, here. I hope everyone has a great day.

                    Afternoon all,

                    Late to the party as I'm still on the 1:1 list of projects I set for myself.

                    Hope all are having a great day.

                      Good evening, all. The weekend has been spent doing things around home. Monday I'm off to take apart more trolley track so demolition & construction of a new carbarn can proceed. Then some Flying Yankee (Budd 1935 version) activity Tuesday.
