    Good evening,

    CNW man, I hope you are feeling better.

    Found a package when I got home this eveing. Here is what was in it.

    [​IMG]

    New Beep from Jeff at Mega-Steam. This is a special run he had made. Gave it a test run around the layout pulling two Atlas Diecast hoppers and an MTH caboose. Zipped right along, also great slow speed operation. Put it on the shelf until I get time to install TMCC.

    Rick & MadHatter, Yes the real Catenary can be dangerous. Had two teenagers get burned very severly not far from here about 2 years ago, they were climbing on freight cars sitting under wire. They won a big lawsuit not long ago, bunch of crap, they were old enough to know better.

    Take care all,

    We are having funny weather down here, it was cold last week, now we're having a heatwave and now there is a cyclone going through Mozambique (A country 600km North East of us). We never get any tornados, twisters, huricans, etc. over here!

    Good evening,

    The bad weather is due to arrive here late tomorrow afternoon. Ice storm is predicted, what fun. No early spring here it would seem.

    Ran trains for the 4 year old granddaughter this afternoon. She is a real train fan.

    We are going to get together with the Chief in Harrisburg on March 24th, 1:00PM at Doc Holliday's Steak House. If any can join us and needs directions send me an email. I would like to get a count so a table can be reserved at least a week in advance.

    Madhatter, Yes I realized that you and Rick were not on the same page, that is why I made two separate replies. I have purposely waited until I didn't have to do a lot of reaching over the wire to install it. This stuff is pretty substantial but still can be damaged.

    Might start working on the taxes tomorrow afternoon. Finally got all the data I need this week so have run out of excusses. :cry:

    Take care,

    Good afternoon,

    It has started, about an inch down now. Supposed to change to rain/freezing rain, if I had my druthers it would stay snow.

    Mikey, I sent you a private message.

    Rick, Looks like you are getting some good info on G gauge from people with real experience. Bet you are getting anxious for Spring now. :)

    Take care all,
