Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Saturday, January 4, 2020

If any of you read the Judge's Saturday Report of December 14, 2019 you'll know why this thread is being posted.

Several months ago, the Judge and I purchased several Walthers Mainline Series Southern Passenger cars. We got them on sale and at a great price.

Recently he decided he wanted to populate the cars and add LED lighting to each. Certainly easier said than done. The task of roof removal fell on me. One car has been finished and I learned what to do and how to do it better than the Walthers instructions.

I've learned a few tricks and will pass on this knowledge to make it easier for those wanting to add the LED lighting to the Mainline passenger cars.

I'll add lighting to the large window coach.



Here is a view of the end flap on the lighting kit.

Morning all,

Cool here this morning. Yesterday, Bob brought Avram's Bakery down to show us how it looks. It is fantastic. John Siekirk would have really like it. Bob left it here so I guess it now has a new home on the A&S RR. It looks right at home.

Have a great day ya'll.

Early Tuesday morning November 19, 2019, Jim Miller, Saturday Butty Group Member AKA: Jimmillho on the forum had a heart attach. Although he experienced no pain, he had shortness of breath and went to the ER.

Friday morning he had major bypass surgery and is now in recovery. Pam and I visited with Jim and Claire yesterday morning and Jim is in good spirits. He was sitting up in the lounge chair and complained about the food. He is still in the Critical Care Unit and will be going to rehab on Monday or Tuesday next week.

Please keep Jim and Claire in your thoughts and prayers.

Tom ;D

It's raining here this morning and the temp is all the way down to 60. Brrr, it's cold out. ;D ;D


Ya'll have a great day.

Morning all,

Well, another Saturday this week. Today is going to be a busy one. I'm spending the day with Pam in Mt. Dora and while she has her hair done, I'll spend a few hours with the Cutlers. Then the four of us will have lunch at Chili's.

Have a great day ya'll.

Hard to believe October is here already. Where has the time gone. Never mind, I know.

I'm heading up to Bill and Kris Cutlers to discuss taking down the layout.

Ya'll have a great day.

Layout Tours / The Pennsy - Soon to be a Fallen Flag!
« on: September 26, 2019, 01:09:23 PM »
Lately, I've had several conversations with Bill and Kris Cutler about their wonderful layout. Today, they informed me of their decision to remove the layout and use the room for another purpose. Their health isn't an issue, for those wondering.

Many factors were considered in their decision, none of which matter at this time, it's their decision. A decision, I might add, didn't come lightly or on a whim. It has been a long process, one I know they have been considering and struggling with for quite some time.

Both Reading Bob and I have built structures for the Pennsy and the roster includes a brass loco I painted.

I love Bill and Kris and have offered my support and help in the layout removal.

For those of you who may be new to the forum you can see it all here.
