  • Tuesday morning lounge

    Good morning all, from 52f and Sunny N.E. Indiana. The coffee urn has signaled READY with Boilermaker blend. The special is a sausage, egg, and cheese on a bagel. Oatmeal pot, and other bevs at the end of the line.

    Yesterday's trip out went well, but was glad to get home and hit the recliner. I tell the cardio folks that my back is what got me into their grips, but they are myopic. So the recliner eases the situation. We did iron out the plans for heading down to Indy for the TriRegional Convention. A few new clinics to check out, and the Train show looks interesting (don't they all ).

    Keeping it short today.

    Have a Super day!

    Take the red pill

    Good morning Jim and the inbound Crew. 50f degrees outside of Madison, Wisconsin. Hopefully it will hit 70. When the weather guessers aren’t sure that means it will. It is nice and sunny with no clouds in the sky.

    Trains, I stopped in the train room after dinner last night. Pulled a couple buildings from the paper mill and wired them up with fiber optic lights. They worked great on the bench. But I need another illuminator for that section of the mill. Hopefully more of that today.

    Enjoyyour day

      Looks like yesterday's big storm was a fizzle and today is going to be nice. Sunny and clear today! Back to work on outdoor projects and all.

      In between, some NMRA chores and then some time in the shop putting the wraps on two tanks car while starting in on a 3rd one.

      But 1st.........more coffee!

        Good morning, Jim, Tom and crew. Another nice day in Tidewater, Virginia, that means some outdoor chores before I head to the train room.

        Yesterday, I spent some time tuning the couplers on a couple freight cars. I have magnets buried under the track for uncoupling and the Kadees have to be right for things to work right. When the cars are all working right, operations are hands free. As I add more cars to the layout, I'm sure I'll find some that need work.

        Have a good day.

          Good morning. It's 59F and sunny after a good soaking rain yesterday.

          Today I drop our son and girlfriend off at the Pittsburgh airport before heading to Indianapolis for the NMRA convention. It's been a great visit.

          Other than that, not much planned for today.

          Have a nice day.

            Sun and chilly, just barely 50 here in MI today

            Not much to report, did way too much outside and somewhere as well, lost one of the hearing aid$$ with the ear protectors some where on the 4 acre compound…search will resume after the da dew drops out…backup battery units working fine.

            Zero to report otherwise. Enjoy the light project TomO, that stuff can be fun.

            Later, be well, stay safe, huh?!

              Good morning Guys, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up the lounge as usual Jim. It is the best way to start off the day.

              64 degrees and sunny here in Rhode Island today. Rain was heavy for a while last evening, with crazy winds.

              Not much news for today at my end, so until next time.

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

                Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It was 47 degrees at wake-up and we are heading into the mid-60's later today. The sky is blue and the sun is shining.

                I was on my hands and knees weeding and planting yesterday until my back suggested that I stop. Some more of that after a trip to the barbershop. Then, I better mow the lawn before tomorrow's rain. A busy day.

                I just watched a Tom Turkey standing in front of our new truck in the driveway admiring that other turkey he saw in the chrome bumper. His tail fanned out and he did his strut. I'll bet that he thought that his tail was more impressive than that 'other guys'.

                Have a great day!

                  Mornin' All!!

                  52, headed all the way to 56 under Karl's mysterious giant floating orb here in the northern mitten today. Boilermaker Blend is a Good Thing, but we need the boilermakers out making boilers! It's chilly here!

                  Not much on the agenda today, but I do need a trip to town, so that will take some time as I weave around the orange cones... Right now, though, I need to go see if Martin left anything in the silver bullet, because Hot Coffee is calling me! Make it a great day, All, and stay safe!

                    Sunny but some fluffy clouds coming in in SE NH. Cool, but I'm NOT complaining. We might get some rain later today, but tomorrow is supposed to be perfect.

                    I bought a couple heavy duty big storage containers, to reorganize some of my scenery supplies (in particular my packages of real stone ballast, which are heavy...) An order from Scenic Express is due in Friday. I also got a can of Acetone, which I use as part of my airbrush cleaning regime.
