    I'm staying right here. I think I'll have my ballasting done by the end of the day. Too cold outside to go out. It was in the mid 70's yesterday, but today we're getting the remnants of that west coast storm so we stand a good change of rain.:thumb: That's good since the last rain we had was around three months ago.

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio

    Where the temp is 59 deg and going into the 60's today with overcast skies ! :D

    Boy with this new job, and being out of town so much, we don't get much time to do much posting.

    Here are a few pics of one of our club members Christmas layout.

    Morning all. So busy yesterday did not get to visit. Had train meet and then wife SS class [another one] meal. Came home to help getting gutters and leaves up. Worked until after dark [sucking up leaves with JD mower]. Picked up another 2055 that is in great shape and runs great.

    Also got some [95%] track laid out temporarily in big room. All works great. Got to add section today.

    I went to the local railroad model club's open house in the basement of the frieght depot and I am amazed at the work. Being new to the hobbie I quess maybe becoming a member would not be a bad idea. The paper said 500 people attended and brought 100 locomotives to run, not bad for a small town open house proves the hobby is alive and well.

    Morning all. "Re-did" smoke units on the new 2055 and the Polar Express. They smoke great now. Hope to do more work upstairs on train layout. Moving some cars to it. Mainly for storage. Will have to move them around to do more work. Have a good one.

    Hi Guys

    Changiing from the LL to the Bachmann track continues. Found some Model Power stuff at the LHS. My SO said that it would work okay and has saved me some $$$. I have about 50% of the first mainline changed. Moving the LL over to the second 11x15 and hope to have that fully laid next month. That is just temporary since I want to run trains as I am building the layout. Worked on my yard tonight. Plans are for about 6-8 ft of
    four tracks. That should give me plenty of room since I plan on 10 car freights for the most part. I have to move my computer which is near the layout. Going to take advantage and build off layout staging behind it. Will post photos soon. John

    Morning all. Cloudy and chilly. Suppose to warm to the 60's. Think it is to rain for a few days. Got a couple of sheet of wood to cut to fill in the new section. County meeting this afternoon so no work. Gil, got Lionel stool to sit on. Do a lot of standing. Good luck on the walls oldtanker. Later.
