    I don't think the mini flood caused that, there may be no caulk under that portion of track. No matter, it can be fixed rather quickly.

      Hey Rick I can't believe it, you guys have more crap come down on you. If the Homasote was painted it should come thru just fine, I lay ballast on it and soak it really heavy and have never had a problem. Don't know about the ceiling though you might end up with a mold issue there if it's to soaked and drywall loses it's integrity once wet. Good luck the layout is coming right along.

        Jerry:

        When I came down the stairs, looked inside and saw the water raining down from the ceiling, I blew a gasket, I was livid, I had to go over to the other building to calm down.

          I don't blame you Rick. It sounds like the 'handy man' that works on the building needs to find another line of work. Keep an eye on that ceiling. Jerry makes a good point. If at all possible, you may want to consider replacing it now. If it's that wet, you may be in for mold problems, which could be really bad!

            The portion of the ceiling in the basement that got hit by this mini flood yesterday, got hit I can't remember how long ago when someone who had a party up-stairs left a garbage can full of ice in the kitchen. The ice melted and the water rained down at just about the same spot, we fixed the ceiling then, I hope we don't have to this time around.

              Well, it looks like we dodged a bullet, a little bit of warping of the top of a small portion of the back drop in Tallman and some water stains that are not real noticeable. The ceiling looks like it pulled through without any major repairs.

                That's good news Rick. Lord knows you guys have dealt with enough obstacles, it's about time you got a break!

                  All:

                  An up-date, progress is being made on the trackwork and wiring of the layout. We had a work party this last Saturday, 11 members were present and a lot got done.

                  If all goes according to plan, our first official operation session could happen in approx. 2 months. It will be the first op session this club has had since October of 2002.

                  Hopefully some pictures of the progress will be posted.

                  Rick

                    We are four days shy of a month from when Rick last said, 'Hopefully' (above). So it's

                    high time to share some of his pictures, and many more on this lazy Sunday afternoon.

                    Here are the latest five pictures Rick submitted:

                      • The following are pictures that I have taken over the past several months. I think you will be meeting and seeing

                        a few of our newest members in action.

                        • THE BIRDS EYE BUILDING'S NAME MAY BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AS BAYVIEW NO LONGER EXISTS



                          WE CLIMBED TO THE TOP OF THE BUILDING AND TOOK A PICTURE FROM THE BASE OF THIS FAMOUS

                          BIRDS EYE SIGN



                          THIS IS TALLMAN LOOKING WEST FROM THE EAST END



                          LOOKING WEST FROM SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE IRVINVILLE TUNNEL



                          BTW, HAVE YOU NOTICED THE NEW FASCIA GREG (UPPER FAR RIGHT) IS IN THE MIDST OF INSTALLING?



                          I THINK MASONITE IS ONE OF HIS FAVORITE MATERIALS TO WORK WITH.



                          EASY DOES IT, GREG, . .THAT SKILL SAW COULD GET ITSELF IN A PINCH!



                          (Above, notice the extra width of masonite between Tallman and Irvinville. It is actually a door which provides access

                          to the space between Tallman's East tunnel portal and the concrete bulkhead between layout rooms.)

                          NO PROBLEMO, HIS HAND PLANER HAS THE ABILITY TO COVER A MULTITUDE OF SINS! :up:

                          • Great updates Allen! Your progress is amazing! Tallman looks like a great place to switch. And yes, I noticed the fascia. Looking really good. I still can't believe your progress.

                            • Saturday the Pacific Northwest 2nd Division of the NMRA had a mini meet at the community center up-stairs, it included clinic's and also a tour of our layout.

                              I understood that in the past only 4 or 5 people would show up for the 2nd division mini meets. So I was expecting maybe 10 people at the most would show up. I counted 37, and 29 signed the guest book we had in tha layout room, so we got some PR out of it, and we had fun showing off what we had accomplished so far.

                              • Looking east from the tunnel portal to tallman, there is a substantial mainline/siding grade

                                through most of irvinville. . .



                                along with several industries (left) and an engine fueling facility (right).



                                below, from above the same tunnel, a two-lane highway crosses over the mainline and skirts

                                around the right-side of the tracks in the left foreground.



                                the highway then crosses the industrial rails diagonally at approximately where the engine

                                has been temporarily placed.



                                mtf!
