Morning all,

Not sure what or how I will be doing on the layout today. It's a frigid 55 here and I don't have a basement.

Have a great day ya'll.

Tom ;D

Good morning! We are having a heat wave - all the way up to 9 degrees. Just getting rid of the negative sign makes it feel much warmer. I'm working on the railroad today. ;D I have projects going on all three workbenches - it doesn't get any better than that.  I need to get a project done so I have room for my challenge build. I hope everyone has a great day.

Warmed up on our side of the lake too, John...7 degrees at the moment. I’ve got to completely clean and organize the workbench today. Leaving Sunday for warmer climes (Belize) and I like to come back to a ready-to-build workspace. But first, coffee and digging out the swimwear. 🤪

Morning, all.


At work ready for the day to begin.  At least the winter storm we're supposed to get today hasn't started yet, and let me get to work without issues.

Good afternoon, I ordered another Norwegian State Railways EL18 the other day as I had a scare with one of my locos which luckily I was able to repair. But I was able to convince "management" that we should prepare for contingencies.

The Flamsbana train is climbing the 1 in 18 route the 20 kms from Flam to Myrdahl in this picture.

Morning,
 Single digits temps for the next week...minus 6 below now, and the wind chills will be minus 32 to minus 35 below for the next several days. This will be the coldest weekend in 100 years here.
Have a heater by the basement work bench as we are not going out anywhere in this weather. Even have to wear a sweatshirt and jacket downstairs to keep warm. Many roofs need to be completed in 2018... Happy New Year to all if we make it into next year alive !
Tommy

Good morning.  It is a little brisk here, but nothing a few layers won't handle.

Good morning. Clear and cold in Central VA. Lunch with the train guys today. Try to get some bench time in today but things keep getting in the way, I.e.  nap.  New Year resolution from the old forum:  one hour of bench time each day. Have a good one. Jim
