    Good morning folks

    I added some more details around the caboose/office. I also began weathering track for the Hillside Extension.

    When was the last time you were in a hobby shop? And did you get anything?

    For me it was this weekend. I stopped in the shop because they were having their annual 25% sale. I walked out of there will a bunch of detail supplies and items.

    Well it has been awhile since I was last in the hobby shop. Really haven't had much time to get around to it. But I am hoping to get there soon.

    I go about 4 times a year and, because I buy mostly parts and bits, never the latest locos or cars, I rarely get more than an acknowledging "Hurumph" from behind the counter. Never unfreindly or uncourteous, they just know I'm not gonna make their next car payment for them:thumb:

    I believe in supporting my LHS rather than some faceless Internet site. I go every 2-3 weeks and buy many items each time. Of course, my LHS makes all customers feel welcome and he knows me by name, as well as my likes and preferences. I don't mean to knock Internet sites as they are the only source for some Gauge members and I'm sure there are many reputable ones.
