    where the temp is 35 deg and headed to 45 deg with overcast skies. Yesterday we had snow falling all day but with 34 deg temp it did say.

    Next OTTS meeting will be April 14.

    Yesterday several members of the OTTS club made a trip out to painseville, Ohio to see an old NYC Train Station. IT was orginally built back in 1893 and is now being restored. This is the same place that the caboose was buirned last weekend.

    When I was inside I took several pics of the work in progress and was very surprised to see all the orbs in some of the pics.
