    Morning. Cold in the Carolinas. Got big room benchwork framing done. Now to do other room and cut holes through walls. May not get much done today as so cold to cut wood outside. Also, wife home from work and that screws up my routine. :rolleyes:

    Sun is warm tru the glass patio doors, the dog is taking advantage.

    I made a car for my train. I dug out these old elves and think they will do fine.

    Morning all. 17 earlier but warming. Off to Miss Edna's [Todd's Train Depot in Wendell NC]. Thanks BMRR. Got obligations for a few days so not much going to happen this coming week as far as building. Want to get the "subfloor layer" down, test track alignment and run it on that. Then up comes the track and foam goes down. BTW: what part of Alabama are you from? Got fishing buddy in West Blocton and preacher buddy [over on CTT forum] in Prattsville. All have a good one.

    Had a nice visit to Main St Trains in Huntington WV.

    I bought a 45* xing of fast tract and came home to not be able to locat the stash of track I have squirled away. Such is life:rolleyes:

    It was blue cold this morning and my car doors froze over night. Had to crawl over the front seats from the back door to get in. Car started first time.:wave:



    I have no idea where to get the room I need for an under tree layout now. I will have to remove all the furniture I guess.

    Morning all. Warming up fine. 50's later they say. 60's tomorrow and going to Kerr Lake for some fish and help buddy winterize his pontoon. Hope to put the "subflooring" on all of my benchwork in the big room today. Jsut got back from Sunday School and visiting my pond in the woods. Beavers have tried to dam up my spillway. Not anymore. Guess I willb e on beaver patrol for a while this winter [like last winter]. Shoot at them with my pistol and they run off. Game we played last winter. Worried them so much they left and went back to neighbor's pond. Later

    If you could check out my help threads in the HO section and track planning I could really use some guidance in figuring out what I'm really going to do for a track plan.

    Have a great day all.
