    This is another of those don’t know what is going to happen weekends. We do have the biweekly shopping adventures to do. We may take the kids to a local park that has a lake where they can go swimming. Then there is the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

    On the layout I need to install the track bumpers I just assembled and paint them. I can then finish ballasting around them. I also could “install” the Cement Distributor to the layout. I also could begin adding the green turf to the area. If the ground throws come that ordered I could install them and finish the ballasting around the turnouts. Outside in the garden I still have about half the track to ballast.

    Finish up a rather ratty looking HO boxcar and take pictures of it along with the GVR's official Operation Lifesaver SW1500.(which isn't finished by a long shot,but is painted and decaled :D )

    Other plans are to do some serious remodeling work on the 2TRAK layout and hopefully get some stuff done on my SD60F project.Might also shovel off the small N layout and do some track work on it.

    Oh,and then there are the two HO 70 tonner's and and the 44 ton centercab ,and, and, and,and.
