    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    where the temp is 58 deg and headed to 82 with Blue Clear Skies and T-storms this afternoon.

    Chief - I after to agree with you. Sure hope that Lionel does continue to make these switches. They are 10 times better than the old Lionel ones. And that maybe a problem if they have too much ego. :cry:

    Off to pick up Spanky food today.

    Gil, where is the neon lighting available? The bar would be just the thing for my layout and to display my cars. Thanks...

    Morning all. US Airways may have done the "straw" yesterday. Bad screw ups all around for a lot of travelers from Cincinnati thru Charlotte to Raleigh. Raining here. Got to get going.

    Was raining when I got up but the sun is back out.

    I just wish it would warm up nicely, my palms are suffering.

    What is the deal on these double posts? Seems like that would eat up a lot of band width.

    Morning all. Tropical moisture is falling. RAIN. We needed it to fill the lakes and ponds. Garden is growing. Tons of squash and cucumbers. Got a couple of tomatoes last week but the rain over the weekend turned them to growing and not ripeing. Pulled PS1 guts out of a MTH SD70 last night. Installing TMCC and Railsounds today. Great rainy day project. God bless.

    Again it is great here today.

    I can see about 5 miles from here and the sky is cloudless.

    I walked out to get the mail.

    Later I made a cup of coffee.

    That is my day.

    [​IMG] Hey chief, seems like it is always me and you, or rather you and I.

    I guess you are drying out by now.

    I am awaiting pizza for dinner if the boy gets here before I fix a TV dinner.sign1

    The amazing Chief Eagles woke me up, then I googled his name and found this place. It has a different air about it, but there seem to be a lot of the same folks here that I recognize. Haven't updated my profile yet. The wife has her pool table back, so my 4 x 8 is leaned against the bookcase and the rolling stock are stored. Gonna get organized next week, I swear it
