    The weekend is here! Shouldn't you be running your trains or working on your layout?

    Let us know what you are working on today or tomorrow. Maybe post some pics?

    Me, I am working on structures, right now I am putting together a large warehouse building.

    Yard construction? E-Bay? Like a new lawn mower and stuff? :) Just kidding!

    Actually, I should be out finishing the trim on the garage, and working on the patio area we are going to do.

    Here's some progress on my project.

    I have those done every year by the end of January...one audit made me a very submissive lapdog:thumb:

    Been oiling up my beasties...this being the first full loop of track I've had in a long time. Ain't much on prototype operations but you'll not find too many busier 60" x 43" layouts in HO scale...:thumb:

    I just came back from my "heavy car" experiments... time to get back to the warehouse. Working on the right hand side. Mr. Dremel is the kitbashers best friend.

    Absolutely, but we probably won't actually file until October, or whenever it is the extension runs out. Unfortunately, it looks like we will owe this year, so I have to get close enough to figure out how much to send 'em by Tuesday.

    Hope it won't be a lot. I've got my fingers crossed. :D:D:D

    We filed back in February and already got our moderate refund. I got the other side put on. I ran out of City Classics modular parts so I had to put a door section on the 2nd floor, but I'll camoflage it with some vents or piping, and this side is kind of hidden in an alley anyway.

    And a pic of my workroom.
