    I have had a busy day at work driving around looking at construction problems. I am now just having lunch and getting on the computer.

    This weekend we have the usual bi-weekly shopping that we have to squeeze around a couple of youth football games. If I have any time I would like to finish assembling three more reefer kits. (I finished four others this week). I would also like to weather them.

    I started a new project this week. I managed to get a set of CPR two stall engine house plans and I've started to scratchbuild it. I have the walls cut out of styrene siding and the windows and doors drawn in. this weekned I hope to cut the door and windows out and hopefully stare on the interior frameing on the walls. That's probably the modeling I'l get done this weekend.

    Let's see:

    Tonite - break-in some newly acquired engines, put some loads in a few hoppers, then run some trains, might start a kit don't know yet.

    Sat. - alot of yard (outside) work to do then hopefully get in some model building and running trains, the shorter days help towards doing some modeling.

    Sun. - up in the air not making any plans!!

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!-[​IMG]

    Doing the John Allen thing---

    I have to work all day Saturday until 6 PM. I am going to do the John Allen thing Sunday morning when I am bright eyed and bushy tailed, whatever that means. After much study of John Allen's photographs of the viaduct on his first Gorre & Dephetid, I have the form already nailed in place on my basement workbench ready to pour the plaster Sunday morning. It will take be about 4 hours to carve stone into the damp plaster after it is poured. I have debated his method of construction and think I have figured out how it was done. Time will tell, but it will be four hours of fun and creation. :thumb:

    I plan to work on a few of the projects I got at the train show last saturday.
    I am currently working on an Athearn PA1 I got for $5 that had the motor. driveshafts and worm gears removed. I picked up an Athearn motor for $1 and had the rest of the parts in the parts bin.
