I love those things. In my home county public schools they have those in most classrooms. I always used them as my desk and got rid of the standard desk. They store an amazing amount of stuff.

These drawers possibly held some very iconic drawings/layouts/prints at one time.  Per @wm3798 , these belonged to the gentleman that was behind the Tootsie Pop Owl 🦉 and the Scrubbing Bubbles ads 💭💭💭😁.  That in itself makes these twice as cool.  Think I'm going to get a few pics framed up to go with it wherever I place it in the basement.

Aw geez, it has history to boot? That is just icing on a already nice cake!

It may take three licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, but there are four lights.  :D

When I looked for a bubble emoji, the thought bubble popped up.  I see now they do look like light bulbs  :facepalm:

Grabbed a shot at Center St. Looks like maybe the remnants of a D797 continuing to Smiths with a few cars for YorkRail, after dropping cars off in the yard that will be taken back west to drop off at their final destinations. Rock runner power sitting on the inner most thru track, with the lone 4 axle power sitting on the house lead. Crews need this to switch out some of the local industries in Hanover as 6 axle power is not permitted on some sidings



Wish I could just snap my fingers and my basement construction was complete.  But as they say, Rome wasn't built in a day

Ooh, I’ve got one of those! Mine’s wood, six drawers and is perfect for model stuff. My neighbour obviously didn’t have a use for it and dumped it the back lane - my investment = $0.00.

It's true.  My sister's father in law was Gene Azzam, and he was the creative force behind WB Doner, who handled all sorts of national accounts.  After starting out in Detroit, he transferred to Baltimore to head their agency here.  In addition to Dow Chemical's scrubbing bubbles and the legendary Tootsie Pop owl, he also did ads locally for the National Brewing Company (remember the National Premium ads with the guy sitting at a table out in the middle of the water with sharks circling around him while he calmly sipped his beer?) among others.  He was a wryly funny guy, an amazing artist, and a wordsmith of the highest order.   More importantly, he raised his son to treat my sister right.

Make good use of that cabinet.  It's got a good vibe to it!

As for that roundhouse, I can send you some diagrams to help you update it...

I just sorted my pics on my phone to create a train stuff folder. Its been a long 4 years but I had a lot of other stuff going on as well with the new house. I truly understand the want of a magic wand at this point.

Can just about call drywall work on the "garage" side of the basement complete.  Hopefully some time will come up to get the ceiling grid up soon.



Next up, have to move the workbench and TV, the wall that it's hanging on will be moved a few inches out, have a doorway cut into it to make a mechanical room (without moving the water heater as mentioned a pages back).  Spring Grove will need removed from the rest of the layout at that point to build the end wall.  Time to start packing up buildings and putting cars back into their cases for now.

Slow progress today, only got the TV off the wall and Spring Grove extension removed.  Hopefully tomorrow wall will come down and new ones going up around the water heater/softener etc.  Decided moving the WH wouldn't really result in much given the work involved in moving it elsewhere, so it will stay and get enclosed.
