Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Re: Tuesday, Sept. 19
« Last post by S&S RR on Today at 08:47:37 AM »
Good morning.  It sounds like the contractors in the South are taking advantage of the storms with their pricing.  I installed a full house natural gas generator for $7,000 two years ago - it's a big unit that can run everything in my house with clean power  (23Kv).  That included all the electrical work to the house,  the natural gas lines and the concrete slab (which were about 3,000). I just thought it might be helpful to those facing this decision to have some numbers to compare with what you are being quoted. I know it's a lot of money but it sure is a nice thing to have - and it sure made the boss happy.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good Morning All,


I'm home again today with some sort of feverish crud. I'm feeling a little better but still sweating and chills. Yesterday, my joints were aching but today (so far) things may be on the upswing.


Cool pictures Jeff.


My friend does whole house generators and he quoted me about 10k including the natural gas setup (which we don't have in place). The house is about 2700 feet for reference. For any of you in Central FL, PM me and I'll give you his info...he's been doing it for years.


Lots of trains on the brain, but Irma and the fever have me back in the weeds. Have a great day!

I'll defer to the wisdom of others regarding the lack of interest in the layout. Without trying to sound melodramatic, be encouraged it hasn't spread to other parts of your life. That's when the real problems occur. And I'm not convinced that the "fatigue" you're experiencing is not a part of the process of "getting older".  8)

Nice plane pics, Jan.  I didn't realize there were any flyable P-36s (AKA Curtiss Hawk 75s) left.  Duxford?

.....we got a price on a whole house generator system...$17,500 and I had to provide the concrete base....to say I was speechless is an understatement....

I saw a commercial on TV last night for whole house generators "starting" slightly over $1,900.  I laughed at the "starting" part.  I've been researching/pricing generators after last weeks fiasco.  We'll be buying one (most likely just a portable one, not the whole house deal) once things calm down and I figure out where I want to store it.   ::)

I think it's kind of natural after having met a deadline to feel a bit down afterward.  I've felt the same way about building stuff since I started the new job.  Part of my issue is fatigue, but I'd also finished my first real portion of scenery on the layout.  Last week I started a small kit and a couple of boxcars to see if I can get back at it.

Morning, all.


At least the trees didn't hit the house, Tom.  Here it's actually rained twice in the last few days for the first time in weeks.

Morning Tom and all that follow,

Glad to hear that the oak tree is being taken care of today Tom.  Good luck with cedar.  With all the damage Irma did it's going to take a long time to get everything cleaned up.  The crews have been working hard but there are mountains of debris, fallen trees and partially fallen trees everywhere.

Not much to report here.  Things are getting back to normal but I haven't made any real progress at the workbench lately.

Have a great one!
