Title: Friday, February 26, 2021
Post by: Opa George on February 26, 2021, 05:15:55 AM
Hello and happy Friday to all.

I didn't get time this week to do much work on the layout.  Our bathroom remodel has upset the daily routine, as remodels do, and it just didn't happen, so no new pics.

I ordered the new lobster boat casting from Rusty Rail and it arrived the other day.  Beautiful detail and nice sharp casting. It will be a fun diversion to paint it and place it in the inlet.  I'll post a pic at that time.

Meanwhile, have a great day!

Have a safe and healthy day ya'll.

Morning all,

T.G.I.F!  Looking forward to some workbench time this weekend for sure.  Nothing got done this week on that front.

A lot of the older structures in my old home town had some interesting features on them like this one.

Have a great one!

Morning, all!  Another Friday for the working people (who work M-F).

Clear sky this morning in SE PA.  Snow melt has been outstanding the last couple days. Pothole harvest hasn't begun in earnest, but it's started.  Time to get the roving road crews off the plows and on the trucks to fix the craters.

A task or two on the docket this AM.  Maybe get on the feeders in the PM.

Everyone work safe.

Morning all. Day off today to take Ma to a Drs., Hair, and vaccine appointment. I'm allowed to get the vaccine also where I'm taking care of her. Photo taken in Hyannis MASS.

Hey Der Folks!


Mid 40's today. Woke up to the water heater out (notice I didn't say HOT water heater Ha Ha Ha). Cold showers are not fun, I did get it to fire up again.


Have a Great Day All!

Good morning! We have lost about half our snow, now. It is supposed to be in the 40's for highs this weekend so we might get rid of the rest of it this week. ;D  I just hope mother nature doesn't plan on new March snow piles. Modeling again today, it sure beats having to go into the office.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Coffee in hand. Hope to do some modeling in-between doctor appointments. Both just follow ups.

Love the pictures. I took a bunch when up in Toledo of the backside of the buildings. A lot goes on back there and no construction rules seem to apply.

Good morning.


This morning's photos are great, lots of modeling inspiration in all of them.


I've been trying to finish up the renovation of my layout room (formerly a bedroom).  I'm really feeling all the crawling around on my knees putting down flooring, installing baseboards, etc.  Unfortunately, there is still another day or even two required to finish up.


Chiropractor appointment later this morning.  I'll probably take the rest of the day and rest my sore muscles and joints before getting back to the renovations.


Everyone have a safe and productive day, even if it is a "rest day".

Mornin' all...

Still working my way around the RR room cleaning, dusting and repairing little details that ave been kicking down the road for a long time......... "Oh, I'll get to that soon".

With no visitors in the last year...... it has really gotten out of hand.

I am to start my photography of the railroad next week in preparation for the summer convention that will be virtual.  Cameras are are unforgiving for what they see ............ ie  cobb webs...............  Just exactly what is a cobb? ? ? ?

With that........  back to the salt mine........ we do this for fun ? Right???

see Ya
Bob

Turns out I know this!  The Middle English word for spider was "attercop" which came down to Old English as coppe, and the webs produced by spiders became coppe webs or cobwebs.

It's amazing what a guy can learn on a model railroad forum.
