Good morning folks We are still dodging rain storms around here last night. We even had at least one tornado touch down in southern Chester County about 20 miles west of us. There were reports of funnel clouds all around us. Football practice came to halt when after the kids had finished their stretches and were beginning their sprints the skies opened up. With in five minutes the filed was literally under several inches of water. Last night I added ground turf around the turnout near the cement distributor. I also began adding trees, foliage, fine leaf foliage, and clump foliage to the abandoned road. What era do you model? For me my primary focus is the late transition era. That way I can have some steam and first generation diesels on the layout. Also I love 40’ boxcars and two-bay hoppers and this means I have them. My primary period would extend from the late 40’s into the mid 50’s. There are times, however, where I want to run trains that I grew up with. I can then time warp into the late 60’s, 70’s, and/or 80’s as I have equipment that will fit this era. I can then run my 54’ covered grain hoppers.
