    Mostly Atlas Flex track with hand-laid turnouts on wood ties. Ventilation is so-so, and yes, I have a fan in the paint booth, which is in the next room.

    Pete,

    Are you painting plastic or wood ties? Do you have good ventilation where you are painting?

    Well, the sun has just sunk into the hills of Leelanau County, leaving a lovely afterglow and a bit of real sunset, and with that, a Major Question having nothing to do with Jolly Round Red Mr. Sun. What's the preferred rattle can brand and color in the USA for duplicating "Railroad Tie Brown" these days? My several bottles of Polly-Scale RRTB have somehow vaporized. Interesting feat, given that I'm the only one here.... Slathering is not appealing to me right now, mostly because I just took my grill apart for a parts replacement, and the cleanup took about twenty minutes shy of forever....

    Thoughts?

    Thanks.

    It's what the Plebians or (us non-Millennials) use for exercise. Meet Mr. Rake

    Jim, sorry I misunderstood yard work and fitness center!

    Pete, we get F-16’s practice bombing our back 40. That’s my theory. Beautiful sight the planes of freedom. Those CC rescue copters must be a neat sight?

    Karl, are the powers that be ever wrong? Enjoy the tilling. I had a 6” wide tiller in No Central Wi. Worked great in the raised beds but bounced off everything else

    Afternoon, All!

    It's 87, headed for 91, sunny and clear in the northern mitten, and the counting mechanism on the Forums still shows the last post in the General Forums section and the Crew Lounge as Rick's on the Suncoast Center from five hours ago. Somehow the eight posts and three comments showing here as more recent on this page don't seem to count. Hmmmmm....

    Leaves have popped here as well, and the lack of energy downstate has apparently reached up here, too. Maybe I'll just watch the Coast Guard helo practice over the Bay.... <yawn>

    Make it a great day, All, and stay safe! Pleas accomplish more than I probably will!

    Good morning, Jim and crew. Tidewater Virginia has rain showers in the forecast, so my chores will be limited to indoor work.

    I resoldered one of the points on my switching layout. a couple of my cars didn't like it. O need to do more running today.

    Have a good day.

    Good morning guys, and all incoming crew. Thanks for the chat and cup of brew Jim. It's the best way to start the day off.

    62 degrees and cloudy here in Rhode Island today. May 13th already and just reaching at least the 60's.

    I've got the parts for a Critter build now, so maybe I can start if off in the next few days here on the RR-L Forum. I ordered a part online and you all know how that goes these days.

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

    Well, Jim, that's definitely a debatable point. We agreed, though, that a recession is likely until Ukraine is resolved (and that's probably a couple years off.) The Ukraine war's impact on energy and food/fertilizer markets is significant, particularly coming on top of the pandemic. But all this is probably off-topic for this group.

    Good morning. Another sunny day in the Mountain State; maybe the last for a few days. We do need rain. I have some yard and garden tasks that must wait until the ground is not so hard and dry.

    Meanwhile, I have no big plans for today. Maybe trim shrubs, visit the hardware store for stain, that sort of thing. I have an NMRA meeting around dinner time.

    Pleasant day, everyone!

    Sun allergies and heat here. Yard work also seems to derail the sensible rate of exercise planned….just been ‘suggested’ that I run the mini-tiller in area at the end of the house. I’d rather spray it but better ideas can’t be dismissed…

    Lots to do…wait til mid day when it’s 85.

    Fun day all, be well. Stay safe, hydrated and naps are allowed….some where.

    Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is 65 and heading up to 85 under sunny skies here in S.E. Michigan. The leaves here burst into their glory this week and my allergies burst into its glory also.

    The tonneau cover I ordered for the new truck came in, so we'll head over to our son's house this evening to install it.

    A little modeling as time permits.

    Have a great day!
