John,
If your taking the CFO to brunch to explain expenditures, do you need to take the Royal Taster with you?  :-\  Just sayin'.
70 degrees here on Thursday. Now we're waiting on 3"-6" of white stuff. Hope the two robins I saw yesterday morning don't freeze their tails feathers tonight.

John,
Speaking of the lighting, have you looked at the DCC LightIt boards from NCE? There have been a couple of episodes on MRH's Trainmasters TV about the boards. One of the shows specifically covered using the boards for interior lighting. Good description of the product on the NCE web page.

Darn glad I moved out of the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts!
I'm not a CPA and I don't offer tax advice, but common sense tells me you need to find a good CPA. I know one in Plymouth who might answer your question. Call Ben Husted at Husted & Husted in Plymouth (508) 747-6447. Tell the receptionist what the problem is and that I suggested you call. Ben's crazy busy enough right now, but you might get a return call from him.

Miss Bailey, our 12 year old black lab is on the floor, asleep, beside me. No photo: I still don't know how to post them here.
Very large football party at our in-laws today. We moved from Patriots country to Philadelphia (burbs), but with all the "stuff" going on with the NFL, I could care less who wins. Waiting for pitchers and catchers to report. They are a better predictor than Phil, another Pennsylvania resident.
Hobby on, folks.

A Renaissance man for certain. Much more accustomed to seeing May on Grand Tour.
Thanks so much for posting.

Curt,
Thanks for letting Bill visit and film your work.
Particularly liked the PRR prototypical aspect signals. Regular signals are difficult to do. Aspects must be tougher.
Thanks again.

I've attached (hopefully) links to a series of videos of the Atlantic & Southern filmed yesterday by a friend of mine Bill Fagan. It gives an interesting, tied together view of the A&S. We've seen all the construction photos and brief clips of action on the A&S, but these put it all together.
Bill has a Youtube channel with a lot of other interesting layout tours when you need a break from your own efforts.
If this makes it, enjoy.

Scanning the poster above, does anyone else remember Burma Shave roadside ads? Can you fathom trying to read those on I-95? That might, however, beat texting on I-95.
Time to start cleaning the house. Missus gets home tomorrow from a two week trip out west. Didn't realize the dog was so messy. After all, it's not my fault things got this way.  :)

Old age/forgetfulness?
Yesterday while checking out of the vets office, I was looking around madly for the meds they'd just sold me. Not in my pockets, not on the counter, the lady at the desk didn't have them, but she did politely point out that I had them in my left hand. Being right handed, I never thought of that.
I WILL get to the railroad today.
Stay warm.

Tom,
This may be late for you, but for others still building, do an internet search on Kreg Jigs.
These amazing little devices take a lot of the squaring problems out of assembling true wood working corners. I know Lowe's stocks them as do better, high end wood working stores.

John,
As the rawest of rookies here, I've been stewing about this comment for several days, BUT....
Back on page 1, look at the photo that shows the chimney head on. What is holding the chimney up? It is sitting on the roof, but it would need something inside to hold it up structurally.
I haven't built the kit, but I do think that any chimney is a column of bricks/blocks from the foundation all the way to the cap. I'd hate to see you detail the interior (which I'm looking forward to) and have the chimney crash through the roof into the detailing.
Just sayin'. I'll crawl back under my rock now.

Whipsaw!
it's 61 degrees here this AM as I let the dog out at 6:30 AM. Low for the day? 31 tonight. I love variety.
Gotta' get busy and figure out what a three day weekend is. Maybe others will elucidate later.
