Jeff got the scan but is having trouble signing up for the forum. I guess he's waiting on JD to approve it or something.

Tom ;D

Morning all,

Nothing new here. I paid my old lawn service to cut my grass yesterday. I paid for just the cut but they edged and blew off the sidewalks and driveway. I think they want the old job back. I had them for a few months and then let them go. Their equipment is to heavy for my yard. One time won't hurt though.

Anyway, I ain't gots nuttin else.

Have a safe day ya'll.

Tom ;D


I have the kit and card A. PM me the information and I'll send the scan.

Tom ;D

Curt and Greg,

Not concerned whom may have moved the cow. It's all in good healthy fun.

Tom ;D


I have several undec. 40' boxcars to decal. But getting some in the paint shop isn't out of the question either.

I think Curt may be responsible for the bear incident, not totally sure. I heard him asking Greg about moving stuff around one day. Greg always names it and claims it when he does something.

By the way, this is the PFM L&A D-22 Ten Wheeler Pam bought from you for me on our last visit to the Magnolia Route.

Tom ;D

That's a very MA&G inspired lettering scheme on that box car!


Hey, good to see you are still checking in on the forum. Yes, the inspiration came from two sources, you and the AB&C Railroad. Certainly it's only fair to give you the credit for the new Atlantic and Southern layout. After Pam and I visited you that fateful summer on June 6, 2013, I came home and in December of 2013 began the removal of the old A&S RR.

Your Mississippi, Alabama and Gulf scenery really did inspire me. The scenery on the current Atlantic and Southern RR is a result of me trying to make the scenery look as southern as possible. Our visit to your beautiful Magnolia Route was the best thing for my desire to make a model railroad into a railroad model.

My A&S slogan came from your Magnolia Route. What a great slogan and very fitting for the A&S RR as well.

The source for the A&S logo came from the Atlanta, Birmingham and Coast Railroad. The AB&C was later purchased and taken over by the Atlantic Coast Line.

So you see Cliff, you are the inspiration for the new Atlantic and Southern RR. And, I thank you very much my friend for the two visits and your friendship.

Tom ;D

Tom those decals will look great.


Thanks very much.

Tom ;D

ACL 1504,
             Wow! Nice looking graphics T, these will be a nice upgraded addition to the progression of your AS railroad. ;D  Jim does very nice decals that's for sure. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Thanx Thom...


I'm very pleased with the decals Jim did. Of course, they were a combination of the AB&C Railroad and the Magnolia Route. Refer to the explanation below for the history.
