    Good morning all, I will be hanging out here for a while, maybe permanently, they need to get their act together on that other forum.

    Not quite sure what you need to do to post pictures here. Help!

    I'm still working on my long running stockyard project. Building it on a piece of 1/2" foam board cut to fit the space available on the layout. Had the idea to put down the scenic materials before installing the fencing on the base. Unfortunately spraying scenic cement on one side of the foam board created a nice bow in the board. The good news is that by spraying a coat of scenic cement on the back side it returned to almost perfectly flat. Hope to make some progress this afternoon as it is rainy here and can't do anything outside.

    Also making progress on building my new computer. Didn't get the correct version of XP, needed X64 to run on the Athlon 64 processor I am using. Got that yesterday so now can fire it up and see what happens.

    So much to do and so little time, being retired is so stressful. ;) :D

    All have a good day.

    Thanks for the posting info. Don't have anything earth shaking to post at this time but wasn't sure how to do it here. Printed out the instructions for use when I need them.

    Got the new computer up and running, need to install antivirus before I go on line with it. Transfered some of my files over on the home network.

    John (csxt30) Maybe we can get some of the other guys to move over here. I got an email from Frank that says the new site is down. Growing pains I guess.

    Have a good evening.

    Still getting failure messages at the other forum. Glad this's here. Muggy and hot today. Rainy off and on. Got to wear jeans to work because everybody else is gone - so that's a highlight. Hope to go to the Illinois Railway Museum this weekend - there's an O layout there this week.

    Had to come back to the caboose and say hello and grab some sweet tea...too hot and humid in Charlotte. To the State of Ohio...please send down some rain, we need it in the Piedmont. Just sitting here thinking that the layout might need an "all Southern RR diesel" saturday. I can't wait for someone to come out with a Southern GP30 High Hood in Nscale. LifeLike just announced one in HO so maybe N won't be far behind.
