    Tom, I like the new photos on Shutterfly. Did you replace all of the power poles on your layout? I'm still rewiring.......boring, but everything seems to be working better except my knees.

    HI Buckeye,


    Nice to see you stop in. :cool:

    Not so far, I have only replaced the ones up front. Most of my pics are in this area. My layout, as you know, is quick large to replace all the poles at once. Maybe a few at a time. :D

    I like using the pics from Shutterfly Shared albums. They are 600 wide over the 480 on the normal album. :thumb:

    [​IMG]Just finished testing the lites on the tree lay out and I thought I would pose the stuff for a few pics before going to bed. I want to get a perspective as others would see it so I can make changes.


    I still have a lot of work to do, I need to trim off the edges of the red cloth and take it all down and put ou the tree.

    Then it all goes back with about 3o trees, a dozen people, a couple ofbags of snow and all like that.

    I promised Bubbette it wouldall be done and the house ready Friday nite.:rolleyes:

    Now to hit the sack.:sleeping:

    That is a Western Hobby trolley, one of Walts.

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio

    where the temp is 21 deg and headed to 32 and forecast has snow overnight. Like we need more of it. :rolleyes:

    Gil - Very nice under the tree layout. Every tree needs a toy train.

    Chief - lets see your Christmas Layout. I know Buckeye has one.

    Oh Chief - we are Dreaming of a 'White Christmas' for you. :D

    Would any one like to send my friend a Christmas card while he is in the hospital? I am afraid he isnt going to make it but he might.

    Here is the address and a link to a site with his story.

    It would mean a lot to his wife I know.

    Morning. Cold rain. Had a little ice on tree limbs but melted quickly as temps are on the climb. Icy streets west of us [Durham and on west]. Told wife to stay home and be safe. She jumped at that idea. Now calling her Mom to come and go to the mall with her. ;) :rolleyes: Have a great day and God bless all.

    where the temp is 25 deg and headed to 31 with some sun shinning. :D

    Our DSL line was down all day yesterday. See what happens with underground wires, then 15” of snow melting and 2” of rain. Sounds like some of that water found its way into their lines.

    Lots of reading to do today. :)

    Gil - I have to agree with you. This is a very nice place.

    Train Show tomorrow - Parma HS

    I would agree but this thing is soooo slooooow. All the other fourms load up and run fast [got Road Runner]. Tried to load it all morning and it just sits. Finally got in and the thread took 5 minutes to open. Don't have time for such slowness. Hope they get it fixed or I'm not coming back. Sorry Charlie. :curse:
