Morning all,

T.G.I.F!  My sole accomplishment yesterday was getting the address set on my new loco.  Amazing what you can accomplish when you read the instructions.   ;D



Have a great one!

Good news Dr. Jeff!  Congratulations on the Hawkeye's win over Penn State (my alma mater) last week.  Had our QB not gone down it might have been a different story.   ;)

Good morning.

Checking in from Vermont, checking out the leaves. All I can say is wow. The weather as well as the leaves have cooperated. The trees have really put on a show.

Off to breakfast and who knows. Hope everyone have a great day.

Good news from Dr Jeff, hopefully it's just a cold and he'll be feeling better. 

I've been working on the instructions for the newest Amesville Shops 34' DLW boxcar kit.  I actually like writing kit instructions, it's kinda like computer programming.  You have to explain stuff precisely to someone with no imagination  :)    I'm excited about this kit, with a little bit of work we're able to model 2 different cars.

That loco in Reading Bob's lead post certainly does look "Old and Weary".
Summer is making a last stand today. Best get the convertible out for a top down day.
Stay healthy all.
Working on my second million. I gave up on the first.

Morning,

But looks like night with heavy rain expected. Time to do inside work and have a nap.

Good morning! It's raining here, again.  I got the grass cut and leaves mulched just before it started, yesterday afternoon. I will be spending most of the day getting the layout ready for operations with the Grandkids this weekend. I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning all. Recently I spent the day on the Verde Canyon Railroad located in Clarkdale , Arizona which runs along the Verde River canyon, The train was led by two EMD FP7 locomotives.
