    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

    Time for me to shut it down tonight. My energy level is low, so I'll get some rest tonight and be back on tomorrow.

    I went to hobbyland today. The store pretty much wiped out of train stuff, I did buy some train figures. Prices are about the same as going online so I'll make some more trips when they restock.

    Good evening,

    Ran some trains for an HO buddy today. He liked the sounds and smoke. Had four steamers going at once, cough - cough. :)

    Here are some pics of the latest addition.
