Good morning folks One day left in summer around these parts. Tomorrow the kids are off to school on their new bikes they just got today. We are still picking up small and medium size branches from Ernesto. We got a lot of rain but no flooding in our immediate area from this one. I spent time this weekend planting trees and adding foliage around the abandon road on the layout. That area is pretty much done now. I also spent some time running trains and trying to figure out the video feature on the digital camera. Since this Labor Day here in the US I figure here is a good question: Do you or anyone in your family work or have worked for a railroad or a model railroad company? My father spent many years working for Baldwin Loc0omotive Works in Eddystone, PA as did my uncles and aunt. My father and uncles transferred to General Steel where they worked on building freight cars and trucks for Baldwins’ locos. In my job I do have the occasion to work with railroads. As a highway designer I am coordinating projects with the railroads in this area from time to time.
