    Morning all. Working faster today. Some of the slowness is the cookie and popup blocker. Some Third Party activity going on. Cloudy this AM ????? Wish it would rain. Got the back wall covered in the walk-in attic and only the end wall to do. Then paint. Then I can start on the train room. Once it is painted, benchwork. That gets the trains off of the carpet int he other room. My problem is time. Everyone wants me to do something for them. Seems I could get more done before I retired. Have a good one.

    Good morning all.
    I'm getting things ready for the show tomorrow. Cleaning wheels, tuning locos and setting up the modular layout.
    Busy day.

    I built a new forum. This time I did it myself so it would be the way I wanted it.

    Lots of tropical colors and pic.

    If you have time take a look.

    Morning all. Got walls done in walk-in attic. Now to paint it. Then, I will move some things in there to clear the floor to paint the train room. Off to Todd's Train Depot for a few. Have a good one.

    Good evening all,

    A while since I checked in here. Too many forums and too little time. :) :) :)

    Been busy with a lot of projects in addition to running trains.

    Take care,

    Was morning but now noon+. Takes this thing forever to respond and I'm on Road Runner. It took 5 minutes for me to get in, psot a short reply on speeding up forum and now this. Its nice to have a free forum but it is really slow. We had this problem with a fishing forum a few years ago. Founds out it was the router service. Have a good one.

    Good Morning Everyone, Well I have no plans for today. Yep I am not doing nothing with trains. I just found out last night that a fellow firefighter was killed in a motor cycle accident. he was a dear friend of mine and right now trains are put on hold.

    :wave: Have A Great Day Everyone :wave:

    My brother is a fire fighter, 25 + years as a valonteer and 20 years as a professional paramedic.

    He owns a motor cycle also.

    He is my own personal hero but God forbid he should no it.

    I am sorry for your lose.

    I made this Weaver kit today and half the screws, ect were missing. Epoxy holds anything, LOL.

    It is drying now, giving of fumes as it were, if I had 19 more I would be set.

    I am growing into scale one car at a time.

    I think I over weathered it but cant think how to undo it abd keep the lettering intact

    Hey Gil

    That hopper looks just right!! I wouldn't touch it. I've seen (real) hoppers where the lettering was all but invisible....

    Morning all. Where is the breakfast [got editied???]? This thing was moving and then suddenly, sloooow. Hopper looks like some I've seen around. Usually in the movies, they are pretty but then you look at a real train, well. Have a good one.
