    Hi all that might be interested. The layout that was -- The Central New England, is now gone. Cut up into five sections and sold to a gal who's using it in her railroad antique parlor and connecting ice cream shop. I miss it, but no way could I get up the nerve to try and put it back together. I've designed, and have the bench-work set up for a new logging railroad set in the 60s in Maine. I'm back because Andrew Batchelor insisted I return. Ezdays might have had a hand in there too.Anyways, you'll be seeing me as the new work progresses, and good to be back.

Good to see you back. a few changes as you can see, but we've gotten past that and don't even look back now. :thumb: :thumb:

    Anxious to see what you've got in store. Let me know if I can do anything for you. It's stating to feel a bit more comfortable around here now. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Thanks for coming back.

    Thanks Don

    Been having some breathing medical problems (COPD) but am learning to manage it. Thank God for hobbies and all my friends. I live in an "over 55" community now, and was fortunate to find a neighbor with a wonderful wood-working shop. I drew up the plans for the basic bench-work and he put it together in just a couple of days. It's now in position just waiting for me to start working (and buying, groan!). Thanks for the welcome.
