    Morning all!

    Got some much needed rain this morning. The kind that is gentle and constant and soaks in. Cooler though.

    Glad the Chief is safely back in REBS territory.

    Spanky - nice photos the last three days. The one from 2-1-06 was especially good!

    Going on an overnight trip to Houston tomorrow. My little brother;s 50th B-Day. Sister is throwing a surprise party for him. He has had a rough 5 years and things are looking up for him with new job (food service business) managing food services for HP campus (former Compaq).

    Have a great one all. May not be checking in again until next week.

    Regards,
    Roy

    Spanky, nice job on those two coaling towers, both the Backman and the Lionel.

    Look for the OGR table at the Parma Show and tell'em I said "Hey Now".

    Morning all. Rainy and warm. Will clean out floor of walkin attic. No helping buddy build his greenhouse as rain. Would also rip plywood to finish walkin walls but too rainy. Want to use the new tablesaw I bought. Now I can rip 2X4's down to 2X2's and 1X4's. Big change in weather tomorrow. 50 and windy. Have a good one.

    where the temp is 27 deg and headed to 30 with more snow on the way.

    WE pick up about 8" and the forcast is for 6" to 10" more lake effect.

    Good Game yesterday and even better commercials. Got to love the striker and the magic refrigerator.



    This Friday OTTS meeting

    Why are the photos so much clearer on this forum than on CTT? Is it the blue background.

    How was the train show?

    Buckeye, I think its the way CTT compresses the pic to 400 pic. If you compare the enlarge pics to this forum, I think they are about the same :D


    The Sun is shining now, but looking north over the lake, it is very dark clouds. Just a slite wind change and we will be digging out again. wall1

    Evening all!

    Spanky - some really good photos. I think I am going to have to get another digital camera. My Canon worls great fpr most stuff, but not close train photos. My friends clunker Kodak does better than mine!

    Cooler here. Only hit 57 today. At least a little bit of Texas level winter.

    Some pics from the club layout this past week. The NYC 4-4-0 is mine.
