    oh those lovely fall chores and just think it's probably what keeps most scenic RR in business. Go get a leafblower and get done faster, then get back to work on your layouts.:D :D

    Sorry no time to post

    Train show setup in less than 48 hours and too many things to complete. This will be the second show for our Ntrak group (there are only 2 of us at this time) and we decided last year that pink styrofoam and some track apparently randomly stuck down wasn't that exciting. So like all good hobbiest everthing got left until the last minute. I just finnished building a second throttle and figured I would take a few minutes to unwind and let the fingers cool off (I haven't found a way to avoid burning my fingers trying to connect the chinch jones)

    TTFN

    Garry

    PS I'll post some pictures from the shown next week

    Belg,
    I've been working, but don't have a digital camera. Once I have my current project (a coal and fuel-oil dealer) finished I'll take some film pictures of it and get them on CD and upload them. Still got a ways to go though, the coal silos are done, the office is about 60 percent done, still need the conveyor and oil tanks. As I posted on RR-line, I expect to be done with this project sometime around 2007!

    Totally Freelance!

    I've been bashing and scratching a freelance On30 Boxcab Traction Motor.

    But, alas, no digicam...

    I hope to get a picture in a week or two after a local meet...

    As you already noticed, my last scratch, the logging disconnects, were posted in the logging forum.

    DON'T DO IT!

    Run a cheese grator across your knee cap instead. Hurts just as bad and leaves your hands intact for modeling :D :D :D
