    Morning. Cloudy and cold but not as cold as it is at Tanker's. BURRR Been watching an old John Wayne western on the Westerns Channel. The one with the Quaker girl. One great actor. Now time for trains. Worked on a train layout project all day. Did not work as I wanted it too. Put it all back as it was. Ever have that happen? Today, adding a new siding in a vacant area. Have a good one and a great weekend.

    Morning all,

    Not planning on moving North, cold enough for me here. After I sign off here I am heading out to the greenhouse to start Geranium seeds. First ones I start, will be starting various seeds for the next couple of months.

    Hope to get a little layout work done this afternoon.

    Take care and keep warm.

    Good Morning All!
    Not much to report from the land of Buckeyes even the NS is slow today..
    Well got back from the garage and the heater was repaired.The best part there was no charge because a wire was lose and it took a second to fix it. I had the oil change and the car lube while I was there since the car was 1100 plus odd miles past due.

    Well,another birthday and another year older.I can't complain to much my mind still good,my eye sight is still good but,my body is a wreck..In fact when I die they could donate it to science fiction.
    Well I shall have a cup and look over the forum

    Have a nice day all! :D

    TGIF from NE Ohio
    With temps falling from 22 deg to only a high on this Sunday being 6 deg. :curse:

    This past week we had snow several days, had to clean the drive way a couple of time. Did anyone go woodchuck hunting today!

    This week we upgraded our ram on this old box. It only had 100 mgs, now we are up to 288 mgs. Runs much better. :D

    Don't forget to vote on the photo contest!


    This is a pic of one of our OTTS members layout that is still under constriction.

    Good morning,

    Looks like we are about to pay for all the mild weather we have had so far this year. Next several days to have lows near zero & highs in teens or low 20s. Brrrrrrrrrr. Hope the greenhouse heaters can keep up and that I can afford the gas / electric.

    Happy birthday to "Mrs youngtanker" bday1

    Nice pics Tom. Love that blue & silver passenger train, what / who is it? I can't read the logo. How big is that layout? looks huge.

    Everybody keep warm,
