    That little three wheeled vehicle looks like something that was put out by Daimler-Benz early in the last century. It had a penchant for carburater explosions, as the carburater had to be heated by an open flame. That certainly didn't help sales.

    Good afternoon,

    Tom, That is a classy auto. Who made it? The model I mean, not Benz. Like the brewery truck too. You sure have a nack for finding neat stuff.

    Chief, Thanks, that would make a nice stopping off point on the way to Florida, if I can ever convince my wife to take some time off from work.

    Beautiful day here today, not as warm as the last couple of days but in the mid 50s and Sunny.

    Evening all!, got on here kinda late. Had a great day with the grandkids yesterday, I've about got their dad convinced that the boys need a train....dad too (he was fascinated by the DCC stuff....sign1 . The 4 YO was just crazy about it but he loves mechanical things so I wasn't too surprised:thumb: . The kids got outta here about noon today so the wife and I went to Home Depot to spend the gift cards we got for Christmas! Looked at tools like stuff for my Dremel that I can use on the train but got a new stove hood:cry: .

    Have a great evening all!

    Morning all. Off to NH. Big seats all the way unless they screw up and delay getting to Philly [which they have done before]. Yanks are throwing rain and then snow at me. Back late Wed. night. Got framing done in walk-in attic. Will be glad to get back and do more so trains can run a circle. Later

    Took my father to the doctor today and on the way back there was a hail storm -- well hard pieces of white water rattling off the car. Lasted less than 10 minutes.

    Cold and wet here.

    I have an appointment at 1:pM so I am leaving early so I can take back a presnt and get some starbucks and a donut.

    I dont think that will hurt as I have lost 40 pounds since I was in the hospital in November.:D

    I am now taking down the tree and packing up the trains and little people.

    Later my Railroading friends:wave:

    Good afternoon,
    No train activity today. Worked out at the fitness center & ran a few errands. a friend called from California to chat (fellow O gauger) a little while ago. He is about to start his layout and wanted to discuss a few things. Maybe I will get a few catenary poles planted today.
