Twilight lighting just may be the best to showcase scenes . That just may be the best BIG scene of recent memory .

To continue the thread drift... I practice in the crew lounge (a.k.a. the family room) adjacent to my train room, but it is not unusual for me to wander into the train room while giving my chops a break, and think about which of the next 150 layout projects would do be the most beneficial.



I don't play much anymore, between a stressful job and few local musical opportunities.  Hoping to change that when I retire.

These two hobbies are what keep me sane.  (Of course, my better half may have a different opinion on that...)

Enquiring Australian minds would like to know which part of the BCR system you are planning on modelling.    Great use of a small space too!

Hi Andy,

It will be an interpretation of the North Vancouver "A yard".  At the left hand end of the shelf will be the Capilano River Bridge and will lead into the yard up to the Capilano Road grade crossing.  I should really start a build thread one of these days.

I'm enjoying keeping up with your progress @BCRail_FSJ on the blog!

My weekend was devoted to non-train activities in the form of the PA State Rabbit Breeders Association convention (PaSRBA), helping my girlfriend show her New Zealands, and helping our friend group (“tribe”) with showing the endangered breed Blanc de Hotots.

Nonetheless, I still managed to buy something N-scale over the weekend. My eyes and ears at Timonium @ChristianJDavis1 scoped out the deal of a lifetime on an Overland schnabel car. He flawlessly executed the purchase on my behalf after I wrangled money around on spotty rural PA cell service.

Waffling...


To interchange or not to interchange.  That is the question.

Also sloshed some paint around...

Before...


After.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

We've been busy with patio and pool remodels in the winter here is the best time. Back to work on the layout, so I am replacing the switch springs with Caboose Industries Ground Throws, they are big and out of scale but I need these 12 turnouts to work for operations that will be coming later on in the year. I had to remodel some of the sidings for this and they actually came out pretty good. Here's the update.

Oooohh...here's another great opportunity for thread drift:

House Rabbits! :D
Yes, that's a thing.
One for the Crew Lounge I would say.

My sister had a house rabbit for a while, inherited from her college-bound son.  It was box-trained and generally got along well with the cats, who didn't seem to mind sharing the litter box.  The dogs learned very quickly to leave it alone.  Rabbits CAN defend themselves!  Not a bad pet at all, although she prefers cats and dogs.

I've had rabbits and cats and can confirm this. The worst animal bite I ever took was from horny male rabbit that kept trying to mount everything. Those front teeth can slice through skin like a knife through butter.

We have a psycho bunny in our house.  The Rabbit of Caerbannog has nothing on ours.

My girlfriend’s rabbit is a pedigreed show rabbit living a quasi house-rabbit life. He lives in a cage, but gets to roam her apartment under supervision at times.
The house rabbit community tends to look down upon breeders and the overall show community, yet the show community generally has no problem with people wanting rabbits as house pets.
Personally, I see rabbits as being almost akin to any other livestock, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be cute. I’ve got a retired Grand Champion chestnut Netherland Dwarf named Apollo at home. He supervises the studio when I’m not there.

 My wife has 2 house rabbits that she rescued from a apartment complex running loose outside. She asked around and found out they been running around for about a week. With some help, they were caught and she brought them home.
 We think that they were Easter bunny's and someone grew tired of them and just turned loose outside.

UP VOTING ALL RABBIT POSTS!

A house rabbit of undetermined lineage adopted us when we lived in Texas via a silent auction at my son's school. Apparently she was a project whose young owner lost interest. As a result she (the rabbit, not the owner) was not well socialized. We loved her for the fact that she was 3 pounds of fury although weirdly affectionate in her own way). Tons of personality. She died after a very long life and a relocation to Colorado (2008) back in 2015. I've never felt great about getting a new bun but maybe from the Colorado House Rabbit Society some day.

I subscribed to, and regularly watch, Lennon The Bunny on YouTube because Lennon reminds me of Midnight.

All this talk of house rabbits and all I can think is why has no one given one a sock yet so they can be a free rabbit?
