    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    where we are at a Brrrrrrrr 7 deg with snow on the way tonight.

    Yesterday we worked on a switch back layout that was donated to the musuem. It was a display at a local train store (Willoughby Trains) some 30 years ago. It is an On3 layout.

    Morning all. Warmer here. Ran trains while waiting for Frankie to get ready to go to Mom's. He is always behind except when going on duty. He's got phone static problems [as of this AM] and I told him I would go to his house and help him when we get back. He goes on duty tomorrow morning [Deputy Sheriff]. Yanks, stay warm up there. Hope all have a good day. God bless.

    Tom, that's so cool...!!! I tinkered with the idea of setting one up in my layout but figured I'd need some 8 feet to be able to haul a 4-5 car consist up the mountain. That's a lot of real estate. How big is that baby? What kind of grades is it running? How many switchback tracks does it have?? You guys sure are lucky to be able to tinker (play...) with something like that...!!!

    Good Morning All!
    Not much to report from the land of Buckeyes except its another day closer to Spring.
    Went out this morning for breakfast(I had ham steak,eggs,and cat head biscuits with jelly-$3.99 including coffee) and manage to see 2 NS trains on the trip there and back and I also drove by the T&OC station and it looked so inviting to stop awhile but,I continued on home way to cold for that happiness...
    I went with my Brother-in-law yesterday and watch him spend money on 15 used Athearn cars,7 used Walthers coil cars and 3 use Atlas S2 switchers. At least he knows quailty.. The oddest thing about this equipment is they are equipped with X2F couplers.
    We are planing on building a HO layout in his basement.He also models N Scale but,me thinks he will sell the N Scale.

    Well I shall have a cup and look over the forum..
    Have a great day all

    It's 24 degrees Celcius, the wind has been gentle but COLD the past couple of days, we are probably going to have an early winter . Autum is just 'round the corner anyway.

    Keep warm everybody.

    Good afternoon,

    A little warmer here, to get to 34 today, before the snow gets here.

    Rick, I hope this is just a routine Dr. visit for the grandson. BTW, you havn't reported on the project lately. What is happening.

    Take care all,

    Waiting on 6-8 inches of snow, maybe a delay or no school at all tommorrow. After 32 years of teaching the delays are nice to get a little extra sleep.

    Surgery over. Got hole about the size of a dime in right hand at 7 O'Clock and one inch back from second knucle. Little deeper than the thickness of a dime. Cut out a chuck, bio'ed it, cut a thin layer more, bio'ed it and it came up clean. It was on type of cancer that grows more outward than inward. Good Lord looking after me. No stiches. Letting it heal natural. That was can use hand and not pull them out. Also can get wet and etc. Might take a couple of weeks longer to heal. Later
