Good morning from the UK. Wet and windy here. The last model train exhibition we attended was Tonbridge, Kent.
A 5-hour drive on a Friday afternoon to set up for Saturday. A lady (day job with the BBC) took a video which is going the rounds. It gives a great insight into the model railroading scene in the UK. If you watch it you might catch 6 minutes of an interview with yours truly on the subject of my layout "Norge".

Here is the link.



Morning All and my (shared) sympathies to those of you to whom Mondays are still "MONDAY". 

Good layout work this weekend. Hopefully, I'll keep it going a little bit tonight. Off to get a little closer to not caring if it's Monday or Saturday like my heroes on here...Have a great day.

Good Morning All,

Starting out at 48F today. I have chores then I'll continue to work on the kit.

Mike it's nice putting a face to the name. You have built a beautiful layout.

Morning all.

We're headed to a record high today of 72.  Incredible for February in Iowa.  I have a bird feeder out back that has wasps nests in it that needs cleaning out today.  Probably get the car washed as well.  First up is an eye appointment in an hour. 

Will watch Mike's video later, too.  




My brain hurts! Why is spring weather here when I need the exercise of shovelling 2' of snow?


Morning all.....enjoyed the look into UK modeling Mike.  8)

Morning all,

It is a "MONDAY" for me.  Fortunately, I'm getting closer to where they'll all be Saturdays.

This past weekend was kind of a waste (even though it was a three-day weekend).  I missed the gathering at Tom's place on Saturday.  :( Between allergies acting up along with other things that needed to be done I only got to spend time at the workbench on Sunday.  Almost done with the wharf portion of Red Hook though.  The land based portion is next.

Have a great one!

Midmorning all,

Monday? This is Monday? I hate Mondays, so this will me my first Saturday this week. Bob, you'll be in the club very soon.

Not much going on for me today. Taking Pam's mom the the eye doc at 1PM. Then I'll continue work on the REA build.

Have a safe and healthy day ya'll.

Good morning! First Saturday of the week for me, too. I'm looking forward to welcoming Bob into the club. I'm building water tanks, today. I have 6 of them of various sizes on my workbench.

I hope everyone has a great day.
