Good morning! I'm working on the railroad this morning - also hoping for some good news from Tom. I hope everyone has a great day.

Great work, I'm really enjoying your thread. To my amazement the stair file that I downloaded just popped up on my apple screen.  It works.

Get well soon Tom. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I have been busy building all the various subassemblies for both the Beach Farms build and the G. Wilikers build and thought I would share my technique for building all the decks. You will notice in the picture that I'm building over the template that George provided with the kit but I'm holding all the joists in place with laser cut templates.  The templates are a great tool and really help with this process.  I stain all the undersurface pieces of the deck before I put it together, but wait until everything is glued in place to stain the deck boards.  I just find it easier to add the details, like nail heads, to the wood after it is in place. Any grain or texturing of the wood is done before it is glued down.

This is coming along very nice. It's good to see you get some modeling time in. I will be following along.

Nice additions to your layout, John.

Cheers, Mark.

Mark, thank you. Wayne is a real artist.

Hey John:

the boats Wayne built are just beautiful. Enjoy them. I can't wait for this vaccine also.


Thank you Karl.

Good morning! Sorry to hear of Tom's setback - get well soon. I'm at the workbench this morning watching it snow out side.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! I'm heading into my train room with a fresh cup of coffee. I hope everyone has a great day.  I hope you and your family are feeling better Tom.  Stay safe everyone.

Love ‘em. Really looking nice. That Wilikers build is still a sight.

I’m expecting a delivery soon for a Shrimp Cutter I’m planning to use on my Rocky Point Harbor tribute — which is threatening to become a rather large diorama!

Wayne did a great job on the boats. He has been building model ships for years and always adds many details that don't come with the kit - my harbor scene is going to have lots of watercraft traffic.

I have little subassemblies laying on three different workbench for both the Wilikers and the Beach Farms builds.  I will be adding them over the next few days and then it will be time for some more progress pictures.

I stopped by Wayne Olson's place, yesterday, to pick up the boat models he has been working on, and to give him the supplies he needs to build some water towers. Wayne and I would get together most Saturdays, before Covid, and he would help me work on my layout. I sure miss being able to work together and look forward to the vaccine so we can renew that tradition.  Here is a picture of his latest works of art. I also have hundreds of Aspen trees that Wayne painted ready for the flocking.  I plan to wait for Wayne to do the planting.

Good morning! It sure was nice to see a post from Tom this morning. We are all thinking about you buddy. I'm heading into the train room and staying away from this bug the best I can. I hope everyone has a great day. Stay safe.

Wow - Thank you for the update.  Continued thoughts and prayers for you and your family. I too, am looking forward to the "working on the layout reports". Hang in there, my friend.

John, that is a spectacular piece of work. Gorgeous. Really hits the spot for an Illinois granger guy's eye.



Thank you for the very kind words and thank you for stopping by to take a look.  It's great to see you back on the forum, you know what they say about all work and no play.

Good morning! I spent most of the day, yesterday, Facetiming with family members trying to catch up. It is not like being there but it was the best we could do under these crazy times we live in. I'm heading back to the workbench, today. I hope everyone has a great day.
