Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Saturday January 6,2024
January 06, 2024, 08:17:15 AM
Morning all, I'll open up. I need to get my hair cut this morning, and then get ready for the big storm coming later today. Can't wait for the snow flake by snow flake coverage by the local weather weenies..
Tag, I'm it, I'll open this morning. Good morning. That's all I've got.. Raymo
So this will be my build challenge this winter. Kleiber was a west coast truck manufacturer that lasted into the late 1930's. This kit was originally produced by SS LtD in or about the mid 70's, then Walker Models, and now Wiseman. I'm thinking the trailer and cab dark green, truck chassis red, and hood black. So let's go!
Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Question for the forum?
December 18, 2021, 08:22:00 AM
I'm needing help deciding what I should build for the Build Challenge. Would you like to see another Jordan build? Or something in metal like a Wheel Works kit or Wiseman models or GHQ. Another Sylvan build or a solid resin kit like Magnuson or Stoney Mountain Classic Castings. Let me know what you would like to see built, Raymo
Forum Contests / The 2022 Winter Build Challenge
December 18, 2021, 08:12:41 AM
I'm a little late this year on starting my appeal, but here I am asking you to help support the forum by taking part by doing a build thread on anything you want. The build can be anything, any size footprint, or scale. Most of us it will be the 3 scales of model railroading that most model but we've had other things built in the past. It will run from January 1st to April 15th but if you want to start early like Tom, have at it. All I ask is that you do a detailed build thread and post it to the forum. Thanks again in advance, Raymo    P.S., Use this thread to let us know what your building..
Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Wednesday the 3rd of November

Morning. Just one Dr's appointment for today, hopefully I can get something done today.
Morning and a belated Happy Birthday tp Reading Bob! Tried to do some painting yesterday with mixed results.  I use TruColor that should dry glossy, but dried dead flat like Floquil. Some of the vehicles even started to blush (autobody shop term) where the paint turned white. It had to be the humidity in the air from the rain we we're having even though it was in the low 50's. TruColor sells a "retarder" that slows the drying time that helped with some pieces, but I ended giving up.

Morning all.  I found out last night that Tom Davis, the owner of the Station Inn in Cresson Pa. died. I last stayed there at the Altoona EXPO in 2018 and he had just got out of the hospital then.
Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Question ?

Awhile back someone posted an archived link to Jimmy's old forum on the Baggage Car board page. Unfortunately since the last time the the forum was worked on, the Baggage Car page only goes back to the beginning of this year. Looking for it in the search doesn't help either. Does any one remember the link? Thanks..

Morning all, Doing pretty good considering what I went through a week ago. My biggest problem is because of the medications and what that does to your eating habits and resulting discharge. On top of that I still have the catheter in till Tuesday so hopefully as the weekend rolls by I'll be feeling much better. Pain level is low so that's helpful but the stupid follow-up calls 6 calls from 3 individuals from the same office, but get some rest 😕

Morning. I talked to the Dr. yesterday and he said I was one of the worst he's done a fusion on. 6 hours in surgery laying on my stomach. My breast bone feels like I got hit with a baseball bat, that's more pain. Hopefully it will get better in the next couple days.

Morning all. This week after suffering with major back pain most of the past year, I've scheduled to have a spinal fusion the end of July. I'll be down for a few weeks with a lot of restrictions but I hope that it will give me some better quality of life. I'm already planning on using some of my down time posting some of my vehicle clinics to the forum and finishing some of the projects on the bench. As for now, I'm trying to get people in place to help care for my mother while I'm healing.
Morning all. Another cool morning here at camp, don't think I've ever run the heat this late into June. Enjoy your day..
A place to show off your builds.
We'll it's that time of the year again where April 15th is here. We had some excellent builds again and I applaud everyone who helped with putting build threads on the forum. If you haven't finished yet, continue on and finish at your pace. Hopefully we'll inspire other modelers to add to forum as we move on. Once again, Thank you! Raymo
Morning all. Another Saturday is upon us working fools, for you retirees it's just another day..
