    Was pretty darn cold changing that alternator yesterday, got it fixed and didn't have to go anyplace:cry: .....now it's +9 and I fixed the darn thing yesterday :curse: .

    Have a great day!

    Afternoon all,

    Chief, Pictures look very nice. Did you get the straights you need yet?

    Well the Seahawks and Bears just went into overtime.

    Went to Greenberg show yesterday and took a few layout pictures of N scale modular layouts. Real nice bunch of guys operating them.

    Chessie, good luck. Nothing wrong with that line of work. I was a volunteer fireman for 16 in a very busy fire dept. Was Captain and then Asst Chief for most of that time. Moved away. Hope you get it.
