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.

Let me be the first to congratulate you here!
Well done.
Does Melissa know how to operate a vulcanizer?

Greetings to all who follow.
Spent part of the day in the basement yesterday figuring out where "stuff is" and tried to create some order to the chaos. Baby steps, but none-the-less, a start.
Dental checkup this AM and then back to the basement.
Keep smiling if your face hasn't frozen solid.

Guess we didn't move far south enough!
We frequently got 11 degree weather in New England, but now we've got it in Pennsylvania too! Drat!! Can't afford another move financially or mentally. Guess I'll just have to start making lemonade.

One is a Central of Georgia 40' boxcar. The price was $1.69 in 1983.








This car is OP4, meaning out of production and very rare.


Mine has a box price of $1.49, but it's dated earlier.
Boy I feel smart this evening.

Hope nothing major comes of the hand problem, Tom. Would be a real bummer to have to open presents Monday with one hand.
Eight weeks with no layout work nor updates?! Don't even want to think of that possibility.  ???

Freight cars, passenger cars and locos all over and under the layout.

I cleaned out a place under the west side of the layout.






I have four small 6 drawer cabinets I got from Ikea. They are great for storing freight cars.





More in a few.


Sincerely hope to see all of those brass "blue boxes" operating in the very near future!

I'll be another member of Lurkers Anonymous, Tony, if you keep up this fantastic work.
