    Morning all. Sunny and warm. Grape vines to prune. Tanker, good luck with the knee thing. Guess Grandson's arm is OK. Hope all are doing OK and have a good one.

    My blood sugar crashed early this morning to 28. I have it back up to 130 now but still feel like s**t. Sorry I don't have my usual full weather report this morning but my mind is still quite fuzzy. I'm not even sure what day it is.

    I'll have a cheese amd mushroom omelet.

    the C&O tender looks like it's meant for the George Washington loco from the C&O because that tender has our first president's name on it

    Morning everyone. I got my steamers (IHC 4-6-2 and AMH 0-8-0) from Eric the other day. I did put some of the track up yesterday and run them a little! I'm very pleased! My 4 yo grandson go to run them too and was very excited! Then my 25 yo nephew was here in the afternoon. He ran them a little too all the while telling me...I need a hobby! Being a newly wed I warned him that it could get in the way of his love life but if he wanted too start he could learn doing scenery with me and help lay track (his wife is a very good artist so maybe i can pick her brain and get something in the way of a backdrop). I also told him that with her approval he could buy engines and rolling stock and run it here until they have the space and time to do something at home.

    Major winter storm is supposed to hit today and go through Friday. 10-18" of that white junk is expected.....

    Have a great day!

    Morning all. Tanker, only getting into the 60's here today. :wave: Got a few things to do and get ready to go to Hampton VA Bass Pro Shops for an event [Thurs thru Sunday]. A drivable for me [not flying :) ]. Got to get some train time in. Bought sheets of plywood from Lowe's yesterday to build rolling stock storage under benchwork. Have a good one.

    Brrrrrr, send some of that cold this way- I've never experienced snow, only for a few minutes actually last year, powdery stuff.

    Also travelled with the train through the Hex River Valley on the way to Cape Town (snow on the mountains, the train's vapour clarkson heater stopped working and we had all our clothes on but that didn't help!

    I probably won't be on much today. Being that it's the first of the month, I need to pay some bills and make my monthly drive to the LHS in Alexandria. They have some things there I want to look at. I don't know exactly what I'm buying today, but I'm bringing something home. I'm not gonna make a 120 mile drive and come back empty-handed.

    Morning. Got Enterprise rental [they picked me up] and out the door to Hampton VA Bass Pro Shops. Back Sunday night. Snow??? We have an average of 7" per year. We are way below that per our weather expert last night on TV. Saw the History Channel's history on freight trains. Later

    Good eveniing,

    Tony, I see you are just like me, can't do a job without getting out every tool you own.:)

    Got started on installing TMCC in my Lionel Bethlehem Steel Docksider.
    Now I can run it and did test on operation, horn & smoke control. All works so far. Had to Dremel off some mounting studs for the old light board in the boiler shell and wire the new lighting setup.

    Here is what it looks like so far.

    The tie wrap sticking up in the air is there to hold up the antenna temporarily for testing.
