    Sounds like a fun Christmas...!!! Nothing beats a train at Christmas time. Still remember my first "real" Christmas train set back in the 1/2 fifties....A great AF 0-8-0 set (which I still have...!!!).

    I had to do the drywall thing (+ insulation, wiring, plasterin' & paintin') when I converted my garage to a train room..."Nuff of that...!!!

    You all be safe and we'll pick it up NEXT YEAR...!!!sign1

    The guys on the Roseyville Div of the NS stop their switching to wish each other a Happy New Year. The tanker driver has stopped at Franks Hotdog Stand for one all the way. The truck driver at the grain elevator is on his way there too. Happy New year.

    Happy new year everyone! We had a great time on our Fargo trip and enjoyed partying with the band our son and his soon to be works for!

    Did make the hobby store up there, didn't buy much, some detail stuff, a coupler hight gauge, some more couplers, and the spacers.

    Good morning all. Started designing "The Ames Ridge" for operation. I will be doing simulated movements between the two layouts until I can design and build a liftout.
    Not going to go crazy on that one until the track is swapped over, but the idea is to be able to keep running trains until I get the basics in hand. John
