Since I am unable to access Gauge at work for the time being I need to get his going early. If the weather mis-forecasters don’t get it right with the rain we are supposed to have Little League photos and Opening Day Games on both Saturday and Sunday. We also have the bi-weekly shopping torture to attend to. My son’s eighth birthday is today so we will have cake and presents after dinner tonight. As far as modeling goes I have nine Atlas two-bay hoppers sitting on the work bench waiting to be weathered. I also have a stream area on the layout that needs work. Then there are the rails and ties that need weathering.
