    Gil - we saw that about the NY trains in the paper this morning. Still have to finish reading it.

    OTTS meeting to night at the museum. We will be making plans to finish the landscaping on the tin plate layout.

    Morning all. Can depend on Tom for great holiday "graphics". Converted an old General Mills U36B to TMCC and Railsounds 4.0 [first AC motor one I've done]. Was not that hard. Tight fit though. Sounds are not as loud as I wished. Speaker in fuel tank [cut out bottom with hole saw, glued in plastic screening and speaker just would fit]. Works great. Have a great holiday. God bless all.

    Hi gang. Late shift reporting. temperature here reached 35 C which is 95 degrees F.
    Toroto Transportation had a surprise wildcat strike this morning (we had our holiday last week) and the city was chaos -- resolved in the afternoon but still short of full service at 5:00.

    I seemed to have caused an uproar on a certain OBX fishing forum this weekend making a comment about retired Yankees.

    How do I do these things?

    Is there anyone I havent ****ed off on line?

    I resigned my self to here and OGR form talking trains, this a bit slow but you dont have to put up with morons like me , ot at least i dont very often./

    If I have offended any of you please except my appology.

    Gil: you can't offend me with what you say about Yankees, unless you call me one.

    Yankees come from someplace in the south. stooges8

I don't think it can be fixed, without a replacement.. the tires were $140.00 3 years ago... we'll have to see :( Fortunatly, this is a different budget than my "play money" :D

    sign1 yeah.. yeah..it was only "flat" on the bottom sign1
