    At 9:30 AM it is snowing over last nights rain.

    There was a weather bulletin that a county in Ky., between Chief and me was to get six inches with thunderstorms and hi winds. WE must be getting the residue of that.

    I paint the trim on the Berk today.

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    where the temp is 32 deg and headed to 36 with snow falling and 2" on the ground.

    Chief and Gil, sorry for the snow down south, NOT peasoup fence1

    Great OTTS meeting last night. WE were ask to join forces with the Western Reserve Model RR Museum to build a very large O gauge layout. IT will be 50’ x 24’ E shape layout. Best part is the Museum supplies all the materials and we supply the know how and the labor. Then we get to use the layout.

    From this summer, my favorite train picture.

    K Line shay with weathering. It came out better than the CSX cabose I bought today . It is an industrial on clearence at the local hobby shop. I may reshoot it as I dont care for the weathering.

    here is my Berk I two toned, again not excited about the shade of grey, I was wanting a shade much darker.

    It needs a dot of touch up were the masking let some paint thru.

    Good Afternoon All from NE Ohio
    Where the temp is 32 deg and headed to 40 with mostly Blue Clear Skies and Sunshine.

    This is the first time in days that I have been able to get onto any thread. Hopfully things are fixed now. Now if Chief can get his box fixed we would be all set. :D

    Busy weekend with 'The Western Reserve Model Railroad Museum" asking OTTS to build a very large 'O' gauge layout. The Museum will provide all the materails. :thumb:

    Afternoon Spankbird from SW Ohio. Home of the Flying Pigs!. I just noticed your location and started to think of the old Twilight Zone. How ironic that you are in Modeling Railroad, too. Remember that conductor walking through coach car telling everyone, " Willoughby, Next Stop Willoughby" Or am I telling everyone how old I am.

    I just booked tickets on a Mystery Dinner Train Ride here in Cincinnati. Spouse going too. Could be a Photo Op. Better bring the camera.

    Drinking sweet tea.:wave:

    Afternoon. Yes the forum would not open this morning and did not have time to sit and wait. My printer has a problem. Jamming the paper as it comes out after printing. ????? Guy has it and will let me know tonight if it is fixable or replaceable. [​IMG] Been busy all day with interruptions. Calls [Town Board things] and visits [to see greenhouse].[​IMG] Now Pam wants to got to Wake Forest. Later

    Woo hoo, between the long weekend and tonight, I managed to get some serious layout work done. Long-neglected Marx locomotives with finicky e-units are great for finding the flaws in your trackwork.

    I still have a long, long way to go, but I've got my Life-Like grass paper down--I'm going for the tinplate look, and the prewar Lionel "artificial grass" was dyed sawdust, like Life-Like uses--and I've got my tin buildings arranged. My tin church by J. Chein arrived today. It's a little undersized even for HO, let alone O, but it's gorgeous, so to the back of the layout it goes. I should have a tin schoolhouse arriving in the next couple of days. If any tinplate kids show up on the layout, they need an edumacation.

    The scenery will keep me occupied for a few years, but now I've got a layout that looks like something.
