ACL 1504,
             I'm sorry to hear about Jim, I had some great and interesting phone calls with him and I'm proud to say "I got millerized".  He was one well respected person with an never ending desire to find an answer to every fault.  I learned a couple things from him and are sad he's gone, and glad he's no longer in pain.  My condolences to all who knew him.
                        Thanx Thom...

ACL 1504,
               Wow!, that's a lot of parts.  How do you keep track of all those pieces and not get them mixed up?  You brass builders are miniature Einsteins or something.  Goooood luck putting all those little pieces back together in the right order.  I'll be watching this master class tutorial real close.

Graffen from Sweden,
             I must say- I just love this thread!  You are without a doubt a very multi-talented awesome modeler for sure.  Your pictorials are fantastic, very detailed, very to the point.  I sit here looking at your painting, modeling, building & weathering and just love everything you're doing. 

This layout is just awe inspiring to say the least!  One final not, your engine building skills are very impressive my friend.  Keep doing what you are doing.  I like the positive difference you and many, many other modelers are making in this "World's Greatest Hobby".
                                                                                                           Thanx Thom...

ACL 1505,
               I know my visits to this thread are far & few between, but each time I visit I have to go back and re-look at all the wonderful pictorial posts you make on building this wonderful and really truly awesome (lets not forget realistic or time captured) layout.

Tom, besides being a learned modeling student of our predecessors (insert your favorite ones here) and being an awesome human being (always willing to protect & help) you also take valuable time in being an adroit inspiration to those  of us who just don't get it the first time go round.

I really enjoy this thread because you take the valuable time to capture on film each of your steps in modeling, take the valuable time in responding to each of us who perk up and reply, along with the many hours it takes to peruse other's threads struggling to inquire advice & suggestion on improving our skills in model railroading in general.

Yes John Allen was a inspirational modeling leader (he inspired me of what can be achieved), yes, George Sellios is a inspirational building & weathering god (he inspired me to stretch the boundaries of weathering), but in my opinion you are without a doubt an inspirational individual who models and weathering style sets the bar of fine personal, realistic, weathered, photographic, informative and achievable layout modeling.

Every generation has it's unsung Hero's, (one who does what he/she does and creates what she/he creates, but for some unknown reason isn't in every magazine or on every video or even on a cable model railroading network highlighting one's life achievements.

Well my friend (and I'm proud to call you my friend) you are a fine inspirational, motivational, ever-heart warming and incredible modeling creator to those who have had the pleasure of knowing you and seen the A&S rr's.   Pam must be so proud to be married to such an incredible man-father-husband-friend-modeler-person as you.

All I'm saying is Thank you for sharing so much of your time & talent with others in a hobby I love so much!  Sorry if I embarrass you here among your forum friends, I just wanted you to know publically I get what your doing and are saying thank you!
                                                                                       Thanx Thom...

I can't agree more.  Thanks again Tom for all you do and for being my friend as well...





Bruce,
          I thank you my friend!  Many hugs n kisses-  You're the best too.  C'mere my modeling friend, bring it in!

John,
        I don't get to visit this site as much as I'd like with my new job, but when I do it's really refreshing to see what all has been posted.  It's nice to see all the wonderful pictures you've enhanced with the track level videos from Franks camera.  I'd enjoyed running the trains for everyone those days when George allowed intimate photography of his wonderful layout.

You've done an excellent job with making these video frames a sight to remember.  George is an awesome example of what one can do with a little talent and imagination.  You, yourself are a talented modeler and have imagination with posting these incredible pictures of perhaps the most talented modeler since John Allen.

I just love and can't believe the detail George has mastered in every scene.  He is truly an artist's artist.  Look forward to each next pic you develope.  Thank you Frank for allowing me to develop the original footage for this pictorial. 
                                                        Thanx Thom....

Great News Karl,
                          I knew we couldn't get rid of the ol'fart no matter what.  I guess we're stuck with him for many many more years to come.  Whoo-hoo!  Tell him and Cathy, all of us are glad he's doing well.  Thanx Thom...

Hi all,
         It's my understanding that George already had a procedure (a stent) for a little blockage nothing out of the ordinary.  If anything new or more serious on his condition I haven't heard yet.  I would encourage for others to give George some time before calling and wait for one of his close friends to post an updated notice.  My prayers to both George & Cathy for a speedy recovery regardless. 
                     Thanx Thom...

ACL 1504,
        To my anxious friend who decided to lay around for the next month or so and do nothing.  Kudos to you sir!  I've sat around on my arse for over 50 years and I'm still trying to get back the momentum.  Look it, I see you've already caught up to me.  Let me know any tricks you discover when your momentum returns, I'm always lookin' to learn new techniques. (grin)...  KP-out...
