    Good Morning from Pennsylvania. Tempature right now is 50 and by afternoon is supposed to reach 60 degrees with a possibility of some rain. Other than that I am working on a B&O C3000 caboose, adding new platforms to each end, also working on a fire car ( tank car ) and adding some more detail to my Bachmann 0-6-0 steamer.

    :wave: Have A Great Day Everyone :wave:

    Morning all. Slept till 9:30. :) Was tired. Cut limbs and trees at widow lady's house. Then I trimmed all the shrubs. Drug it all to the street for pickup. Then picked up pinecones and limbs. Raked pinestraw for Pam's gardens. Mowed my grass, widow lady's grass and the hosue next door too. Then weedeated it all. Got in about dark. Rain started and rained for over three hours. Got 1/2 inch so it was a slow one. Some got storms but we didn't. :) Cloudy and cool. More rain on the way. Garden is loving it. Tomato vines have blooms. Squash and zucs are blooming. Corn is comiung up. :) Now to work upstairs and train stuff. God bless.

    Wow!,

    Just got back to the gauge after being away for a while, I'd never seen this thread before so good morning (ok afternoon) from sunny (yes sunny) Truro Nova Scotia (mind you its only 8C outside)

    On a nice railway theme, Train 15 The Ocean is about to pass through Truro on its way to Halifax, I think I'll stroll up to the line (which is adjacent to my place of work) to watch

    Cheers

    Graham

    Good to see you again Graham! Good day from Minnesota. Spring continues to be very pleasant here. Expecting 70 degrees or so with sun today. Its been so nice that I feel guilty going down to the basement to work on the layout until the sun sets. :)

    Evenin' all,

    All those donuts made me hungry so I had to eat me a slice of cherry pie!! (I finished the donuts last night...) Hotter 'n the dickens here in south Texas - and nary a drop of rain...
    Love that diner & cars, not to mention Tom's monster steamer bearing down on us! What is it??
    Well, off to bed for a an exciting day of work tomorrow.

    Hello All,
    Relatively new to The Gauge here, thought I’d drop back to the Caboose and say hello from Texas where it’s a chilly 48 degrees right now.

    Peace

    Spank ol bud, that looks real up town. You all did well to put a finish on the wood.

    I see other good layouts on line that while the top is great, the wood work sucks.

    Unpainted or stained, differnt types of wood showing, ect.

    This is the way it should be done.

    My hat ( I am tipping my cap now ) is off to you.
