    Morning all. Great job Tom. Busy day. Wife home sick with a cold. Suppose to go to Savannah tomorrow. She told her "crew" whe would be wel by tomorrow. One lady is now baulking and doe snot want to go. Messy women. They really screw things up as they never go when they say they are going places. I've scheduled brakes and etc on wife's car [she never lets it sit still long enough for me to work on it] for tomorrow as it was to be home until Sat evening. Got to go. God bless all.

    Still raining here. Supposed to hit on low 50s today but the rain doesn't look like it is going to let up until Sunday sometime. Other than that I have been busy with taking a locomotive apart and getting it ready for paint. That should be done today. After that I will continue to work on my 0-6-0 steamer and prepare it for paint later today.

    Back after 50 years....

    Hello,

    I retired last June 2005 and among other hobbies, I have rekindled my interest in model railroading... I have not had one since around 16 years old... Also thinking it a good exposure for the grandkids... So I am embarking on a Scenic Ridge kit, modified to 3 1/2 x 7 ft by adding an additional outside loop run and a few other switching items for enertainment...

    I worked for 34 years as a environmental engineer and love to build and/or take things apart... I am sure that this is the fault of my father who built me a large O gauge back in circa 1954 as the attached picture depicts... Boy, don't I wish I still had all that gear!

    My name is actually Ray Peterson, but my handle is "pasayten" which actually comes from years of riding horses in the trails and mountains of the Pasayten Wilderness along the north central border of Washington adjoining Canada... Hence my "Pasayten Railroad" will also take on a rural, scenic, mountain flavor... with BN as the RR theme...

    Here is a XTrkCad picture of my plans...

    I have really found this and some of the other forums a great source of helpful information!! Have also got some good advice from you with many more years experience then me!

    Happy RR!

    Chief - be sure to check your tackle box for your clean socks ! !

    We have started the benchwork for the large layout at the museum this week. We will also be making plans on finishing the landscaping on the tin plate layout.

    Some of the OTTS boys are planning a trip to AC & J RR, Jefferson, Ohio for the short line train trip and then head over to the NKP museum in Conneaut, Ohio. This will either be June 3 or 10.
