    I finished remotoring and updating the drive of my Athearn SDP40F A unit and repowered the B unit with a Proto 2000 E unit chassis. Both run as quiet as any Atlas or Kato unit I've seen. I've yet to patch them for the L&A. I installed Digitrax DZ125 decoders in both units and acceleration/decelaretion rates have been set.

    I'm taking the day off so I can join in early. A PC freight pops out of the tunnel through what will in all likelihood be an expansion of Gern Industries into the Hudson Valley.

    After gaining altitude flying over Green Acre's Farm, a huge wind came up and blew Barney Secord thousands of miles off course and he found himself flying over a baseball game in Southern Utah!

    My son and I spent the morning tuning up the Christmas layout for under the tree, and then we got silly with a coal train.

    Thanks Guys.

    I scratchbuilt both barns, because Better-Half wanted a farm scene. After I finished the red barn she said the farm needed a name. So I made a sign (Green Acres Farm) and put it on the red barn, When she saw it, I thought she was going to flip!("Hey...You said you wanted a name!")
    The long white one is the cow barn, the red is a horse barn, both have interiors, lighted and filled with cows and horses.

    Barney also flew over the mainline on my new diorama:
    [​IMG]
    As he continued, he got a good look at the trees that have already been planted:
    [​IMG]
    His chase team got this great shot of the fall colors along the road:
    [​IMG]
    And of course, the trees are all planted, but I haven't gotten pics yet. And yes, the ground is still wet from all the whiteglue/water I dumped on it last night.

    Good-lookin' barns, Ed. :-D My cows are wandering around without a home, although I plan to eventually build a barn or two somewhere:
    [​IMG]

    The horses are somewhat under control:
    [​IMG]

    ...although, without reins, the one in the foreground moved while having her picture taken:
    [​IMG]

    ...and some are still on the loose, including, at left, the farmer's favourite, "Hoof-Hearted" ;):p:-D:-D

    Around here, that would be the cops. :rolleyes:;):-D:-D

    Nice looking trees, by the way. :thumb::thumb:
