    Good question Rick ! BTW your weather sounds more like Alaska, is that normal weather for you in January?

    Just got home from services for brother in law, Sister doing pretty good. They were married 57 years so it is very hard on her.

    Tomorrow I will be going to LHS to pick up an MTH Railking PRR A-B-A set that I had preordered. It has been running on the shop layout for a couple of days so it should be good to go. My LHS owner and I have an understanding that he is free to unpack and test run items that I order to make sure they are A-OK before I bring them home. Sometimes he sells others while he is testing mine. A win-win situation. Also picking up some more MTH catenary sets.
    Chief, Glad everything came out OK. :D Pun intended. sign1 BTW, still waiting on the O72 switches on that slow boat from china? I have some of the same Realtrax problems on O54 sections that you had, the tops of the rails have an offset due to the space under the rail not being deep enough. Just some of them & only one side???

    I think our warm weather is over, cold and windy today & predicted to get down to 19 tomorrow night.

    -30? The coldest I've ever seen it down here in Louisiana is -10, and that was quite a few years ago. There were a lot of froze pipes that winter.

    Good morning. My back is stiff as a board this morning. I guess I pulled a muscle in it yesterday. If that's all it is, I'm lucky. I took a pretty hard fall.

    Morning all. Yanks have sent their cold temps to NC. :curse: Only 32 right now. Of to Greenville NC and Overton's Marine to do some training classes on our chargers. Back tomorrrow night. Only 70 miles one way. Going by Mom's on the way. Hope to give the trains a spin before I go. Got the track running all the way to the back of the walk-in attic. Really makes a difference. Can run long trains and they go away and then come out the other side. Have a good one.

    Woke up this morning to some white stuff on the ground here in Fort Worth, Texas. Just enough to make me stay home and get the snow shovel out(yea I got one) Made 2 neighbors happy. nobody down here knows how to drive in snow and ice. I spent 2 years in Alaska in the Air Force so I got to learn the hard way.
