    Busy day here, first chance I had to log on.

    Had a nice visit from the Chief & later another friend stopped in to see the layout. Smoke got pretty heavy as 3 if the 4 trains running were smokers.

    I stated putting some people in my Crusader passenger cars, not the easiest cars to take apart, but at least they come with instructions.
    LHS, (Barry's) now has Beepeople, I picked up two packs today. 40 in a pack for 24.95. Not a bad price for painted seated figures. Take care,

    Hi guys...

    Have to agree 'bout the rolling Wisconsin farm land...Having lived in Madison for 10 years, that kind of land stays with you...

    Reading John's post 'bout the little people made me wonder...There must be something weird inside of us when buying 40 little painted figures (seated) gets the juices flowing...Good buy, John...!!! :thumb:

    Evening all. Had to spent some time in town tis morning. This afternoon I tore out some more plasterand lath. One room left!

    This evening I worked on a building kit. It will be a pool hall for a "GI" section of town right outside the "gate".

    Got 3 other buildings that will be part of that area, one will be a pawn shop, one a booze store and at "club". There will also be the typical rip off used car lot there with a sign...the walking mans friend...

    Cloudy and cold over here this morning. Keeps threatening to rain but no luck. Busy helping a new buddy of mine design the benchwork for his layout. We are going to make it in his garage.

    We will raise it by mounting I- Beams on either end of the benchwork and attach a rolling mechanism. It will be 6m long x 1,8m wide.

    Keep well.............

    Mmmmm, yummy!!!!- I'll take Hot Chocolate though, not much of a tea totaler or coffee lover. I do however like "Moer Koffie" (Afrikaans for Nuts- as in nuts and bolts) taking fresh beans and putting it over the fire to boil,
    then add some condensed milk- mmmmmmmm!
