I guess there's Greg speed and then there's Greg speed.  Opposite ends of the spectrum.   ;)

I'll be following along as well.   ;D

Wonderful news!  Glad to hear George is back at it having fun and doing what he loves to do! 

A little sad about Stromboli's but I'm sure it'll be replaced by something really cool.   ;)

Morning all,

Another Monday in the cube for those of us still working for a living.   :(  I did spend time at the work bench this past weekend so that's one good thing to report this morning.

Have a great one!

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Re: DCC Help!!!!
« on: January 27, 2020, 07:27:17 AM »
I'll just add that, as John indicated, adding sound can makes the conversion to DCC much more difficult (and costly) since a speaker needs to be squeezed in there somewhere.  But the difference sound adds to the fun of operating a layout is incredible.  :o  Even though I don't currently have a layout I've picked up a few DCC sound equipped engines when I see one that strikes my fancy.  I converted one of my older engines to DCC with sound (not a pretty sight) and, while it worked, I'm not sure I want to tackle anymore myself.

Morning all,

Maybe I'll mow the weeds today.  Definitely I'll spend some time at the workbench.   :D  Wish I was on a spending spree at Springfield but I'm not there and I really don't need anything (not that the latter would stop me).

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Think I'll spend part of the day at the workbench today.  Better half is going shopping in a little bit so I'll pop in "Emperor of the North" and play that while working on Seckler's Cold Storage.

Have a great one!

I watched that on tv many, many years ago--I think I was still a single man.  I remember enjoying it and the railroad theme, but can't recall much of the plot anymore.
--Opa George

From IMDB (with my comments inserted  ;) ):  In 1933, during the Depression, Shack (Ernest Borgnine who does a great job playing a real bad a$$) the brutal conductor of the number 19 train has a personal vendetta against the best train hopping hobo tramp in the Northwest, A No. 1 (Lee Marvin).

Also features Keith Carradine as a very annoying young bum who goes by the name Cigaret.

Thanks Guys. Feels good to be in motion again, if only for the moment. Took me a second to scan the depth of my brain for the 80's movie reference but I narrowed it down and was happy to confirm I still have some mental ability. ;D

Don't feel bad John.....I remember the first part of the quote, but can't remember the name that came after it.....still can't.  :-[

Oh c'mon man.   ::)  I told you at lunch the last time we were down at Tom's.   :P  It's "Feeling good, Louis!".  Trading Places.  1983   ;D  ;D  ;D

Morning all,

Be sure to spend as much as you can at Jimmy's table.   ;)

T.G.I.F!  8 more hours in the cube and then it's the weekend.

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Another big Thank You to Jimmy for providing us with a club house to gather in.   ;D

I'm hoping to get a little work bench time in tonight.  I need to make some progress on the current build thread before I start a challenge build thread.  ::)

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Looks like things are back to normal around here.  At least as normal as this crew ever gets.   ;)

Alas, no workbench progress to report.  I had to connect to the office last night and monitor several jobs that were running.   :(

Have a great one!

Thank you Jimmy!

Now I need to come up with another excuse for procrastinating and not updating my current build thread.   ;D

Have a great one!

Morning all,

No pictures in my gallery either.   :'(   Guess I'll wait until I start my next build thread before I try uploading any new pictures.  Update: Oddly enough the pictures linked from my gallery are still showing up in my thread so they're out here somewhere.  :)

Trip down to one of the hotels near the mouse house in a little bit.  Wife wants to see the nephews 3 month old son.  Not sure when we'll be back but workbench time afterwards.

Have a great one!

So sorry to hear that Curt.  Have a safe trip.  Your family is in our thoughts and prayers for sure.
