    The weekend is upon us once again. What does everyone have in store for the weekend?

    I plan to: Get to the attic and get more of my trains out and look them over and fix what needs to be fixed on them. I also am going to be painting some more of my hopper cars Chessie Black. That's all i have in store for this weekend.

    :wave: Have A Safe & Wonderful Weekend Everyone :wave:

    We have a few sporting events this weekend to attend. My son has indoor soccer on Saturday morning and my daughter has a basketball game on Sunday. We also plan on attending their school Pancake Breakfast on Saturday morning. There is some game on Sunday that I might try to catch a few commercials during it. :D :eek: :)

    Modelwise I want to finish assembling the LNE billboard boxcar and then weather it. I am still adding foliage to the Passenger Station Diorama and anxiously waiting my re-supply package of scenery materials and a highway bridge to come in the mail. I may even start on the Piko G-Scale building kit I have to make for my son and wife.

    I was going to do some work on my 1:1 scale camaro (charge battery, that the fuel injection off for powdercoating, ect) but t looks like it's going to cool off again here this weekend and I hate working outside when it's cold. So I think I'll spend the day inside working on the layout. I have two manual ground throws to install for the track that I re-worked last weekend and tyhe roads in the city will need to be sanded before painting. Another project I should work on is finishing off my meat packing plant and my club gave me a couple Sylvan trucks to build up and paint for the club layout.

    Well, I was going to start this off, it all depends if UPS brings my goody box from Trainworld, well before I started, it was on the porch.-:thumb:

    Now being that I have to work tonight and tomorrow, I am going to be one tired puppy, I don't think I'll get much done other than running trains. The goody box was full of mostly engines, so there is nothing to build, I can run them to break them in. Nothing wrong with just running trains.-:D

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!!-:wave:

    First time adding anything to this part of the forum, I'am actually going to lay some track down, hoping to start on the yard, or I just got 10 swithes from eBay I will test them to see with one works.
    Have a good weekend.

    Working 10 - 10 this weekend at the 'big house'. Hope to start getting the parts ready to assemble an SD60 shell from Kaslo Shops (the Draper Taper). When I get home I'll probably work on the layout foar bit.
