    That car is really sort of nondecript except for the lettering Chief.

    It past 3 PM and I have no chores done & I promised to tke up my HO stuff in the front room and clean it, the room I mean.

    I need coffee.

    Spanky very nice scene with the old station and General. Dont the people look realistic?

    I have spent the afternoon working on an engine that doesnt want to be repaired.

    My eyse sight and hands are no up to the task anymore. Nor to typing.

    Have a nice evening you all.

    Tom,

    Great scene with that wonderful loco & station!!! Although I pretend to be a "prototypical" modeler, I'm a sucker for "toy" (aren't they all??) trains, so much so, I bought my newly born grandson an ol' time Marx!!!

    Gil,

    Don't give up 'cause eyes/hands aren't what they used to be...Happens to us all.

    Good evening to all!!

    Gus (LC&P).

    We missed most of the bad weather with only getting hard rain and heavy flog.

    Gus - your grandson will love his train.

    Gil - I understand completely. I don't have any depth persection and it is very hard working on small items. :cry:
