Good morning everyone. The good news is that there will be lots of train work today. The bad news is will be mostly wiring.

Here's a shot while doing a little train watching in Elmhurst, IL.



Cheers,
Vince

Good morning! Wayne Olson is on his way over to work on the railroad. Track work and scenery is on the schedule. I hope everyone has a great day. Here is another photograph from the Narrow Gauge Convention Layout Tours.

Morning all,

Yesterday the Babe and I had a wonderful visit from Bill and Kris Cutler. They had many questions about the layout and then we went to the local watering hole for a great Langford Salad. Of course, we had our share of BSing as well.

The Judge is coming over and we will run some trains unless the switch man is off his game. Then we will need to have the wreck train come to assist.

Greg D. is coming as well to bring a friend to see the layout. Price of admission is signing the guest book.

Ya'll have a great day.

Tom ;D

Good Morning All,

Still fighting the cold. Found out yesterday that the grandkids will be here today. Yesterday I worked on the roof base from the kit. Sunday is hope to start putting shingles on the roof.

I hope everyone has a great day.

Morning all,

Yesterday afternoon my brother called with the sad, but not totally unexpected news, that our father had passed away.  So, we'll be traveling to Pennsylvania on Thursday for the Memorial Service next Saturday.  I'm glad I got to drop in and see him on my way to the EXPO back in November.

Also still fighting a cold.  I need to kick it before I get on the plane later this week.

Workbench time today and tomorrow.  I'm not going to do much until I feel better.



Have a great one!

Roostr- I live in the Orlando area but when I make it to Sarasota I always stop at Gulf Coast Model Railroad at 3222 Clark Rd. (close to I-75). They have a little bit of everything and the owner is very friendly. I highly recommend them.
