    Well lunch with the Chief is history. We had a nice time and did a little railfaning at the Enola yards of NS, ex PRR. Three on the picture are from this forum. First on the left is the Chief, third on left is Mikey (N Gauger) and I am second on the right. Others are from CTT forum.

    Big coup on the YANKS. Notice the bowls of GRITS [not mentioned by the Yanks] sitting at everyone's plate. Should have seen everyone of their faces when waiter came out and started putting out bowls of grits and said, "I understand you guys love GRITS." :D :thumb:

    Really had a great time. Sun is out this AM. Off to the store and then flight home. Have a good one.

    Good Afternoon All!
    I hope the coffee is still fresh.
    Not much to report from the land of Buckeyes on this warm Spring morn.

    I took my morning walk and of course took a 3 hour "rest" at the T&OC station and talked to old friends as we waited on NS to run 'em. Sadly 4 trains in 3 hours isn't exactly "running 'em"..I understand there is a back up of trains waiting to enter the Bellevue yard and several backed up outbound trains as well.
    I plan on going back if things gets busier..
    I shall have a cup and look over the forum.
    Have a good day all!

    Good afternoon,

    Beautiful day here, got near 60 & sunny. Spent some time in the greenhouse transplanting some seedlings. Also uncovered the pond filter & cleaned it with wife's help and she took out the heater. She also got out the porch furniture which usually brings on a batch of bad weather. :D

    Might actually run some trains later. I started putting people in some passenger cars and may finish one of those.

    Good morning!

    Going to be doing more work on the house. If there wasn't ice still on the lakes I would go fishing!!! IT's supposed to get near 70 today. MN DNR (do nothing right) says the ice should be off the lakes around the 9th of Apr!!!

    Have a great day!

    Morning all,

    Running a little late today, got to get going to the fitness center.

    Did finish installing passengers in one of the dome cars, both levels, now to put it back together. [​IMG] Only 6 more cars to go.

    Looks like the grass is starting to green up, need to give the roses the spring pruning and do some cleanup of winter debris.

    Jeffrey, That breakfast looks better than what I had.

    Take care,

    We are enjoying a string of 80* days, unusual for March.

    The dog is getting several daily walks and loves it.

    We had to cut one short today as the lawn spray guy was out, he spayed a neighbors yard next door and one down the block.

    I went in and shut all the doors up.

    I don't need that junk in my liver and we had a dog die with liver cancer so those lawn services I think are toxic at least on this street.

    We will go out later. I am training her to stay when around people and behave a little better. The dog can be toxic to old folks and children too. She will jump sometimes so she takes her walks traditionally late at night or early morning.
