Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Mailbox color in the 1940's
« on: November 18, 2020, 03:46:10 PM »
I need some help finding a thread.  I remember reading a great discussion on mailbox colors in different time periods.  I actually copied the link but it seems to be gone.  I have a bunch of mailboxes that I want to be from the 1949 timeframe and need to choose a color.  I know that blue like they are now is wrong and if a remember correctly it was a shade of green that I was looking for. Does anyone remember the thread or have the information?

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / I need help with a supply problem
« on: October 16, 2020, 12:38:24 PM »
I just went through the supplies I need to buy for my next couple of builds.  I'm down to my last 1/4 bottle of Hunterline Driftwood Stain. ::)  Rick is still having problems getting alcohol up in Canada because of the COVID-19 crisis, so he is out of production right now.

Can anyone sell me a bottle or let me replace it when Rick gets back in production?  I thought maybe someone on the forum might have an extra bottle on the shelf that they would not get to for a few months. Please send me a PM if you can help.

Good morning! I had to get my phone out to figure out what day it was. Life in 2020. I'm heading out to buy supplies - I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! It looks like we have some members sleeping in this morning. I'm going to get some workbench time in and then take a drive for a change of scenery. I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning. After 2 days of planting trees it wasn't easy getting out of bed this morning. I have Grandpa duty today so I get to try those sore muscles out playing on the floor. ;)  It keeps me young right.  ::) I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! We are enjoying some beautiful summer weather here, finally.  I may move a workbench out to the gazebo today and enjoy the fresh air.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning!  The coffee is on! I'm on Grandpa duty this morning so I got up early when my son-in-law went to work.  It is sure nice to be back spending time with the kids and family.  I hope everyone has a great day.  Stay safe.

I have a number of photographs of forum members caught admiring the F&SM over the years during the photo shoots we did to create the pictures in these threads.  I will be adding them to this thread as I find them. If you see a picture that you would prefer that I delete - send me a PM and I will send it to the bit bucket.

Good morning! We are still enjoying all day rain. We had one day in the last 5 that was dry. We will take it over the snow. I hope everyone has a great day and gets some time at their workbench working on a model instead of working for a living.

Good morning! I'm on Grandpa duty this morning so I'm working on some F&SM pictures before the grandkids get up. Our tour train is making another run through Dovertown.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning!  I'm on Grandpa duty this morning.  This weeks topic for me is to revisit my mountain scenery pictures in preparation for some more scenery work on my layout. Here is a picture of a small mountain lake in BC.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / News Flash: George is back working on the F&SM
« on: January 27, 2020, 12:29:52 PM »
George Sellios just gave me a call to let me know that he is back at the shop. Moving kinda slow, but back.  He told me last night was the first good nights sleep he has had since the surgery.

He has been viewing the photographs of the F&SM I'm posting from the train mounted camera videos that Frank Baker made. He called to thank me for posting them.

He asked me to thank everyone for the well wishes. He has been following along on our challenge builds - I always know he is watching because he comments on where I'm at with my layout build. He is watching but chooses not to post comments - I think he hates typing after typing all those kit directions for all those years. ;)   

So in addition to George's health news he also asked me to let you know that Stromboli's is gone.  He removed it just before his surgery - he will be replacing it with smaller structures.  George said "it will be a run down part of town". He plans on building all the structures on his workbench and then adding them to the layout after he has fully recovered.
