Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Veterans Day Saturday, November 11, 2017
« on: November 11, 2017, 05:50:53 AM »
Morning all,

Happy Veterans Day to all and a big thank you for all our veterans who served passed and present.

I couldn't get settled last night so I'm up but will crash later today for sure.

Not much else going other than spending the day with the Babe.

Have a great day ya'll.

Rolling Stock / The Devil isn't in the details, he's in the Brass!
« on: November 10, 2017, 01:10:39 PM »
Okay, I guess I have your attention now!

I've made several brass repairs over these long years of working/playing with brass locomotives. I guess I could have extended the Baker Brass thread but I want this one to be a stand alone.

The original thread is here.

http://modelersforum.com/rolling-stock/fixing-a-brass-erie-2-8-4-class-s-4-for-erieman/

The reason this thread is separate is I've never come across an issue with brass like I have with this one. I want to show ya'll the problem and how it was fixed.

This loco is a very good piece of brass. It is a United/PFM and was built by Fujiyama (Japan) in 1966. So, keep in mind the loco model is 51 years old. It is older than the prototype when they were all scrapped.

Here is the loco-



More in a few.

Morning all,

My Babe and I thank you all for the great birthday wishes. We had a wonderful day yesterday and a quiet dinner out last nigh.

Reading Bob, you are next.

Nice and cool (63) here in O'town. I guess I'll be forced to stay inside and keep building the fence, mine not Trump's.

Ya'll have a great day.

Morning all,

Rained here last night and is going to rain most of today. I guess I'll be forced to work on the layout and stay out of the rain.

Have a great day ya'll.

Morning all,

First day on the bike yesterday kicked my rear end. I thought riding 6 miles would be easier than the 6 miles walking I used to do. Not so, I only had enough quad power for less than half that for the first day out.

No, don't ride on the streets. I haul them to the local cemetery to ride. No one gets in our way and they don't ask us how to get to Disney. I did hear alot of laughing though.

Have a great day ya'll.

Morning all,

I just love Saturdays, they all seem to run together these days. Seems like everyday is Saturday.

Busy day for me as I'm spending the day with the Babe, maybe some modeling later this afternoon.

Ya'll have a great day.

Morning all,

Yesterday I worked on the layout and today I'll be doing the same. Reading Bob stopped by last night for a short visit and tomorrow Curt, PRR Modeler, is stopping by.

I hope the surgery went well for Chip's dog.

I should cut the grass today. The "should" means it will probably get done Sunday or Monday.

Have a great day ya'll.

Morning all,

The oak tree on the parkway snapped at the top half Sunday night during the hurricane. It fell into my 66 year old cedar tree.







Unfortunately it took out the top and side of the cedar tree. The broken portion of the oak is being removed today and I hope the cedar tree survives. It is/was a great source of shade on that corner of the house.

Have a great day ya'll.

Morning all,

Had a scare yesterday afternoon. The power went out again around 4 PM. I called upon all the dirty words I learned as a kid and used a few I know as an adult.  After about 90 minutes I was going to call Reading Bob and go get my generator back.

After the 90 minutes the power came back on. Seems they shut off the power to reconnect the power a few blocks from the house. All is well.

Have a great day ya'll.

Tom ;D

Hope Reading Bob gets his power on today.

Have a great day ya'll.
