Good morning! It looks like many of us are going back to work today after a long EXPO weekend.  I'm trying to get caught up on my winterization chores today, so I get can get back to the workbench. I hope everyone has a great day.

The 2017 Expo / 2017 EXPO Contest Room Pictures

I will be adding the pictures I took in the contest room at the EXPO to this thread.  Please feel free to add your pictures to this thread so we can keep them all in one place. I think all modelers will find this thread useful for future reference.

Good morning! I thought I would get things started while I'm waiting for the sun to come up. It's 24 degrees here this morning - Fall has found us. Some of us will be at the EXPO a week from today.  I hope everyone has a great day.

I tried to add more pictures to my F&SM thread tonight and I get this error when I try to add a picture to the gallery.

What do it mean??  Have I reached the end of the internet?

The 2017 Expo / Questions?
« on: August 15, 2017, 01:32:56 PM »
Will there be any layout tours before, during, or after the EXPO?

I just finished making my reservations for the Narrow Gauge Convention in Denver.  I'm wondering how many forum members are planning on attending?  It looks like the Denver Team is putting together a nice program.  FYI - I also plan on attending the EXPO in November.  The CFO of the Superior & Seattle has signed off on the travel requests. ;)

I locked my original build thread tonight because of the file corruption problems we have been experiencing. Please see the locked thread entitled Superior & Seattle Railroad Build for the previous 2 - 3 years of build history. I will be continuing the story of this build in the coming days.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Research help request - snow / rock sheds
« on: February 03, 2017, 07:51:11 AM »
Does anyone have pictures of snow / rock sheds that they would be willing to share?  On my Superior & Seattle Railroad I have a number of places where the track needs to be protected from rock slides / snow and I'm looking for pictures of prototypical and modeled sheds. Thank you in advanced for anything you would be willing to share. 

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / What makes LED lights flicker?
« on: December 15, 2016, 03:41:01 PM »
I have a question for the forum - I have a LED overhead light over my layout that occasionally starts flickering. It is driving me crazy.  It doesn't do it all the time but when it does it's like have a strobe light in the room.  This fixture is a traditional 4 foot florescent bulb fixture where I replaced the bulbs with LED's.  I have 6 of them in the room and this one is the only one that is giving me problems.  Any idea of a solution?  Replacing it would be a big job! Thank you in advanced for any input.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Saturday - First one in December 12/3/16
« on: December 03, 2016, 06:45:46 AM »
Good morning! I'm up early this morning - off to try some fishing and got up a little to early - it appears that the sun is on a different schedule than it was a few weeks ago, so I have a few minutes to checkout the forum.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / S&S RR Needs help in the "Boiler House".
« on: November 25, 2016, 09:09:38 AM »
I have a question for the forum?  I'm in the middle of the design work for my S&S RR Locomotive Works which will include a machine shop with a overhead belt drive. I have hundreds of pictures of the belt drive system and the castings for the steam engine that drives it.  My question is how is the boiler typically housed and the steam run to the steam engine that drives it. I'm looking for pictures of  "boiler houses" and steam engines with details of the mechanics.  Can anyone help?

Let the games begin. Here is the kit I will be building for the challenge.  I bought this kit a number of years ago and plan to use it as part of a residential area on my layout, the Superior & Seattle RR.  Layout build location picture to follow.

I have a special request.  Does anyone have the May 1960 Model Railroader Magazine. I just opened my FSM Baxter's kit - it's getting close to the top of the build list and George Sellios has a note in the box that Baxter's was roughly designed from a prototype featured in the May 1960 Model Railroader. If you have the magazine or have access to it could you make me a copy of the article and send it to me either electronically or snail mail. If you can help either post here or send me a PM. 
Thank you,
