Good morning! I couldn't help myself last night and made hamburgers on the grill in the gazebo.  Enough of our snow has melted that I could get the door of the gazebo open without shoveling. The heat from the grill served two purposes on this job. 

Prayers for a speedy recovery for the Judge.

I hope everyone has a great day.

A few errands for Pam and me, then back in the train shed.

Have a great day ya'll.

Thoughts and prayers for the Judge. Tom please let us know how he is doing.

Good morning! I'm back home where it is 12 degrees with the wind blowing like you know what. I have modeling on my agenda for today. I hope everyone has a great day. I'm missing our annual trip to AZ right now - my bones need some time closer to the sun.

Good morning! Grandpa duty for me this morning. Cold wind blowing. The wet pavement from yesterday is now ice. I hope everyone has a great day.

Hey John:

Looks great on to the castings. Can't wait to see more progress.



I have a couple hundred barrels prepped and will be trying out the new earth colored primer we talked about. The new air brushes will be getting a workout in the next few weeks.

Update:  I continued with the assembly of the attached buildings. As soon as I have them all together I will be cutting a baseboard and starting to layout the scene.  I want to arrange things in location on the layout before gluing any of the structures down.

I'm still waiting for the paint for the tower.  I ordered it on February 2 and it was shipped on February 3rd. The USPS tracking shows it in transit. It came out of Florida and it was supposed to be delivered on Feb 6th. I'm giving them until next Wednesday (1 month) and I will reorder and ask for UPS or Fed Express shipping.

Thank you John. On a search I

Good luck with your search. There were a few places where you could get them before COVID - not sure if they were affected by the shipping problems. Try White Rose Hobbies that is where I bought my last one.

Good morning! We got a coating of ice over night but it's supposed to warm up and do some melting later in the day.  I'm still trying to find a way to get my shots. I'm sure looking forward to the freedom they will bring.  That's it from here. I hope everyone has a great day.

For Dennis and others that were interested in where I got my pounce wheel for nail heads, here is the contact information.

I have bought tools from the two sources listed in the picture and the contact information for the manufacture in Ireland is also shown. 

I have two of them because at one point my original tool was MIA. After I bought the second one it turned up under the workbench in a spot where I couldn't see it with a flash light. I moved the bench one day and there it was in the last place I looked.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

I am to start my photography of the railroad next week in preparation for the summer convention that will be virtual.  Cameras are are unforgiving for what they see ............ ie  cobb webs...............  Just exactly what is a cobb? ? ? ?

Turns out I know this!  The Middle English word for spider was "attercop" which came down to Old English as coppe, and the webs produced by spiders became coppe webs or cobwebs.

--Opa George

It's amazing what a guy can learn on a model railroad forum.

Good morning! We have lost about half our snow, now. It is supposed to be in the 40's for highs this weekend so we might get rid of the rest of it this week. ;D  I just hope mother nature doesn't plan on new March snow piles. Modeling again today, it sure beats having to go into the office.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Another project that I have going right now is the preparation of the castings for the next three builds on my list.  I usually do these in batches of three plus I add some other miscellaneous castings that I have purchased in this case from Slim. As you can see there are lots of barrels in this batch.  I'm just getting started - there are a couple hundred more castings in this batch.
