    Nah, I did the other half yesterday. Doing a dozen cars is a bit of a challenge. I ended up gluing little wheelstop stripwood on top of car boxes (MDC, Westerfield, etc) to provide a base for each car, so I could turn the car in the spraybooth.

    I just tried Bob Hayden's website, and it didn't connect. Does anyone have contact with him? (Hope everything's OK and it's just "technical difficulties.")

    Morning crew from a cold and rainy day up here on the St. Lowrance River. Thought the wife might want to head home today but no. Have to head back home tomorrow for a doctors appointment Friday. Also tough to surf the net using my cell phone as a hot spot. Was able to download John's news letter without a glitch though.

    Did take a modeling project with me to work on. I'm trying to see if I can get the windows one on the Suydam engine house. Finished one up yesterday.

    Have great day everybody.

    Way too long out with the tiller yesterday….much better today, 70 and less humid than the 88 yesterday Really ragged afterwards…miserable little 2 stroke tiller about broke me… but that’s done and put away for now.

    Trip out for mulch on tap and probably some of the Brandon’s Oil Company’s premium $4.80 hog wash…

    Time to run, June 1th, starts climatological summer…

    Be well, all.

    Cool and drizzly in SE NH, the heat is south of us (fortunately!). Yesterday I sprayed a matte finish on half of my B&M cars, I should complete the set today. Then a final inspection, select those to go to their new home, and pack them up. And I've been working some landforms and planning structures to finish the staging yard area.

    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.

    63 degrees and sunny here in Rhode Island today. The temps are crazy and rain to return.

    Finished my Crane Critter Locomotive. I should be finishing it up and post the finished Boom Car today.

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

    Good morning everyone. It's a warm, sunny day here in northern WV as the mercury heads up to 88F. We are managing to walk most days but it generally requires us to get out early.

    I did a little modeling yesterday; not much. Today I might do scenery on a T-track module I am building. N scale: something new for me.

    We plan to go out to dinner tonight for my wife's birthday.

    Have a nice day.

    Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is 72 and heading up to 78 today. That's 10 degrees below yesterday's high temps. We should stay in the 70's for the next 7 days.

    We have an important appointment for 11:45 this morning. A face time chat with our Great Granddaughter who is turning 3.

    After that, we need to run a few errands. Maybe some bench time after that.

    May is gone and here we are in June. I better shut down May's Photo Gallery and open a new one for the new month.

    Have a great day!

    Good Morning All,

    Florida's second season starts today (hurricane) and runs through 11/30. There's already a tropical disturbance in the gulf. Fun times.

    On a different note I applied an acrylic wash (acrylic craft paint thinned with water) on top of the resin yesterday. I thought it was going to work but the brownish green wash turned a nasty off white color with black streaks through it when it dried. I admitted defeat and ordered some scenery material and it will be a dry wash now.

    In a couple of hours I need to drive Dad to his Cardiologist appointment.

    I hope everyone has a good day.

    Good morning, Jim and crew. Another day in the 90's on this corner of Virginia. It isn't fun being a shade tree mechanic when you have to pull the engine to get to the starter!

    I had a two steps forward one step back day at the workbench, yesterday. I made progress - slightly. Back at it today.

    Have a good day.
    George

    2nd cup of coffee and I'm almost qualifying as sentient.....Woo-hoooooooo!

    Errands to run today - 3 banks, PO, and the library.......and then it's 82 pages of galley proof to grind through on deadline, shop projects, and maybe set up some part of that big wood cabinet in the garage to continue working on.....

    So it goes...

    started a topic Wednesday morning lounge

    Wednesday morning lounge

    Good morning crew, readers, lurkers, and our newest (sometimes oldest) members. The coffee urn has signaled READY with Modeler's blend this week. The special is Luftwaffles and smoked sausage, scrambled on the side. All other beverages and the oatmeal pot is at the end of the line. Breakfast is still $0.35, and we're fighting the inflation.

    We've had 2 announced returning members this week, and looking forward to meeting more of the 'new' guys. Glad to have you aboard!

    It's already 78f and very muggy (buggy) in N.E. Indiana. I'll get out to the shop shortly to continue working on the JD. Starter has been replaced (engine removal necessary to gain access, dumbest design ever!) and the reassembly has begun. By 4 pm yesterday I was totally drained. After a trip to the rainlocker, I worked on the continuing redraw of my buddies layout. I was on that until 11 pm. I'm about 90% done with it. I hope to finish that later today.

    In the meantime, it's back out to the shop, before it gets stifling.

    Thought for the day...It costs about $24,000 @ $6.00 / gal. to fill up a diesel locomotive, usually twice a week.

    Have a Super day!


    Jim
