Supposed to be nice all day tomorrow though.

Track has been ordered for the Seaboard Central 3.0.  Sadly, though, the weather here this weekend will likely prohibit a run to the home center for benchwork materials.  :(

Having fun while returning all the trains to staging following last week's operating session.

Got to run on Bill Howard's A&E last night (check out Bill Fagan's vidoes https://youtu.be/ByxVktYWp2A, https://youtu.be/y0QrA--3dkw from this past year). I took two pictures of his juice train with Seaboard units leading in the lead for @davefoxx but they came out very blurry so I didn't save them on the phone,

I painted the Highlander Brewery this week and started adding more details.  I also included in the picture the Missoula Mercantile warehouse, kit bashed from the Middlesex Manufacturing kit.  Both need signs, basic interiors, and window glazing as well as many other bits and pieces.  They will not be next to each other on the layout.



Nice job on both, Andrew. They both feel like Montana.

Even worse, I didn't check the pictures until I got home so I didn't take any pics of it actually sitting on its staging track where blurriness shouldn't have been an issue. But, I did make a GP15T purchase in Chessie in HO this weekend so ....

Funny that the two recent N scale deserters are posting their HOishness on the N scale list.  :trollface:

Hmm... ban them from
The Railwire...!


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

I made a bad cut on the bottom of the office, good thing that I still have to add trim!

That's just what Dee does... make absurd statements.


Hmm... yeah, just like
Kiz does...
