    Morning all. 39 degrees. Wow, lots colder than earlier this week. Found back the Yankee snow and nothing happened. No rain either. Just big clouds. Off to buddy's funeral today. Getting clothes ready to go to Orlando Bass Pro Shops. Got buddy's greenhouse framing done. Now to cover with fiberglass. Have a good one and God bless all.

    Have a safe trip Chief!

    Gil - the Acela belongs to a friend of mine in the club. It is a beautiful machine, but a bit too modern for my collecting tastes. I prefer steam. Sorry - no leads from me for the Fastrack. I use traditional tubular on my layout.

    Spanky - great photo as usual!

    Miles - good to have you stop in! Drop in every once in a while.

    Cold here today. Started at 30 and may get to 60. Nice and sunny.

    Regards,
    Roy

    Hi guys,
    Thought I'd drop by to say hello, so you won't think I dropped of the face of the earth. Been lurking here once in a while. Excellent photos as usual. :thumb:
    Been busy working in the smaller scaled. If you say the list in my layout party thread you know why I'm so busy. :rolleyes:

    Spnkty that is a great looking fire box and I know juts how to add one to my Berk.
    I have rail sounds on that engine and the dispatch chatter seems anti-prototypical I think.

    Roy, We are having a dry winter here also.
    There's a wildfire going east of here near Payson already.
    It's going to be a long, bad fire season this year.
