Weathered a Horrifically Oversized Hopper. Will probably end up repainting it into a New England road at some point but until then-

That's my Dad helping me load the doors into the Volvo yesterday.



The first order of business was getting the kidney free-standing, and off the shelves that have been supporting it for 4 years now:

The pic is a little shakey, but there it is.

I finished one of my RS Laser Kits flatcars, the twenty seven foot car.  The load and fore and aft bracing did not come with the kit, I added those.  The stakes did come with the kit, I added bracing boards to the side, though.   I made the bracing from the stock that holds the parts for the kit (I seem to recall that in wood kits, you refer to that which holds the parts 'stock' as opposed to 'sprues' in a plastic kit)




I was somewhat less than one hundred per cent delighted with the end bracing, so here is a do-over.





Here is not the best photograph of the three RS Laser Kits that I have built.  Furthest away is Paul's Repair, then there is the farm waggon, finally, the twenty seven foot flatcar.  I still have one twenty seven foot flat/gondola to build and two forty foot flat/gondolas.  The waggon was designed for two horses, according to the instructions, but it seemed a bit small for two horses.  The kit has a stayer for two horses. I fashioned a stayer for one horse, again, from stock.  I will use the two horse stayer on my pumper.

I just got back from 48 hours without sleep as "head of security" for a Scout/Cub/Beaver jambaree in a park with 100's of non scout campers who enjoy a night cap or two (shall we say)...I was "scouter cookie" by day (I do the cooking for our group) and "Captain night watch" by darkness... no sleep = no trains.....now of you'll excsuebw me I"ll,.wdkljklqbnljk zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!
