    Morning. Running into Raleigh to visit DR. due to cold. Since I am flying to Omaha Thursday AM, she wants to see me before I go. Rather be sure not getting worse. Sunny and warm. Happy Birthday John. Maybe he will drop by [he does off and on]. Great guy. Have a good one.

    I haven't been posting for a spell and this looks like a nice active thread so I'll jump in here and see what's going on in the railroad world. My layout sits gathering dust as I haven't worked on it for at least 6 months.:cry: Maybe I can generate some motivation getting active on the Gauge once again.

    :wave:

    Hello Mikey, long time no see. :cry: I should really be well motivated as I attend the local model railroad club here in town every week I am in town. Maybe that's the problem as I get to run the trains there and they even let me toot the whistle from time to time if I am a really good boy:D :D

    As a matter of fact I'll be there in a couple of hours. We have a really great model train layout housed in the 1899 Rock Island Depot here in Council Bluffs. The "passenger" end of the depot is a really well done railroad museum and we have a pretty extensive layout in two large rooms, one that can be viewed by the public and another of equal size that is really a huge staging yard with a helix and all sorts of good stuff. We are slowly upgrading everything to be able to run the trains by computer:thumb:

    Glad to be back, I'll try to be a bit more active, but sometimes I just don't have a whol;e lot of time:cry: :cry:

    Bob

    Thanks Gil. All I ask is you be cafeful where you dig as I have lots of relatives (actually ancestors) buried in WVA. I think most of them are in Pocahontas County, but who knows. I can track them back to pre-Revolution, which means long before there even was a WVA, by God:thumb:

    Looks to me like a good weekend to stay off the highway between Columbus and Ann Arbor.

    A little windy, but otherwise a beautiful sunny day here in the Omaha area. Leaves are all down and raked, flower beds all mulched, snow blower all gassed up and I'm ready for winter :rolleyes:

    Seems like it must be time for a nap:thumb: :thumb: Don't want to get too much done today or I'll run out of things to do this winter. I only need to lay track, get everything wired correctly, get my DCC hooked up and decide how I'm going to scenic my layout. Wow, I really need a nap now, just thinking about all that made me tiredsign1
