Good morning folks We had a surprisingly cool day for August. It was a great night for football practice. Tonight is the annual Upper Darby vs. Monsignor Bonner high school football game. Both teams feature a good number of former Drexel Hill Raiders. The current group of Raiders have been invited to attend the game as guests of both teams. Hopefully the weather will hold off and we can take my son. I added some more ground turf around a turnout on the layout. What are those projects on the work bench or layout that have been sitting around forever that you should finish? For me the longest unfinished project is an Athearn BB B&O GP9 that I need to paint the handrails and install new Kadee couplers on. I tried to do the couplers about a year ago and they need a lot of tweaking so they won’t catch on things. The other project is a Funaro & Carmerlingo Rutland Hopper Bottom Coal car. I started it back in January and have got the body assembled and about half the grab irons installed. It is still aways from being finished.
