    Morning from Bosie ID. Partly cloudy and warm. Off to the store. Fly out early tomorrow AM. Will be glad to get home and run some trains. Have a good one.

    Morning all.

    Very productive weekend as far as trains go, got the Kato detail parts on, the last of the detail parts on the Atlas Master series engine, 27 cars looked over, parts glued back on and couples installed on the ones that needed them!

    Looking for warmer weather this week! Suppose I should clean up the boat and find everything for the mower deck....

    Have a great day!

    today was mixed for me.

    on one hand, i finally perfected a way to operate. switch my layout ( now i just need to work on ways to easily uncouple my cars). i've been taking to long to go DCC with some of my locomotives, so it looks like i'll be getting decoders soon.

    on the other hand, i got a scale length ( 6 horizon commuter car) SEPTA train. It is creating great stress. at first, the coupler pocket covers were obstructing the trucks, so i trimmed them down. i then added knuckle coupler, of which no combination of the cars will stay coupled. one of the trucks keeps lifting up no matter what i do, and to make things worse, the train derailed, and shooved one of the cars off the table onto the concrete, and sheared off part of the coupler pocket stuff. ( the little plastic protrusion on the underbody that the coupler pocket swings on). I might be able to use a longer screw and a tap drill to try and reattach the coupler pocket.

    as it turns out, my Conrail GP40-2 is a "Phase III" unit, that is apperently difficult to detail accurately because it has 88 inch noses and weird class lights, so i'm thinking about renumbering it.

    Good morning everyone,

    Thought I would post a map to Saturday's Lunch with the Chief.

    If you are coming from the East on 283, get off at 441 as there is no exit on Chambers Hill Road. From the South on 83 the exit marked 27 is what you want. That may be the old exit number.

    Rick I just noticed you’re from Minnesota. I had the pleasure to visit the state. I spent a night near the water parks on my way to Wyoming.

    [FONT=&quot]Nice state but I loved the farms along the interstate through Wisconsin.[/FONT]
