Morning all.....

Breakfast is served with all the trimmings and some green beer for those here that like a wee nip.

Have a fun and safe day of celebrating and keep the aspirin handy.  ;)

Morning all,

Hope you all have a great St. Patrick's Day!

I'll pass on the green beer Greg.  I prefer Guiness.  Well, actually, I prefer Tullamore Dew.  But I'll hold off on that until this evening.  After we've had our Irish Stew.  I hope Cuse is having a wonderful time in Ireland.

Workbench time on tap for today.  Time to clean off the workbench and maybe even break out a new kit.  Red Hook isn't quite finished but everything that's left to be done will have to move to the garage workbench due to the size of that thing.

Have a great one!

On the flight home from Munich Friday, we were in Premium Economy, with only one choice of beer ("Beck's".)  The aircraft was an A-380 (those things are HUGE), and the upper deck is all business and 1st class.  I asked the flight attendant "Any chance you could steal me a wheat beer from upstairs?"  A couple minutes later she handed me an Erdinger, boy that tasted good.  

I'm mostly over jetlag, and have a bit of put-away still to do.  The fridge is restocked, and I need to put the corned beef into the crockpot.  Then I'll see about restarting work on the block building I was bashing from the Magnuson/Walthers Merchants Row II kit.

Morning all,

I'll also pass on the green stuff but I'll have a Diet Pepsi later.

My plan is to update the REA thread later.

Have a safe and healthy day ya'll.

Good morning.

It was a beautiful sunny day so I took a road trip yesterday to see what I could find as far as remnants of the New York & Oswego Midland RR.  I had a few old maps for guidance, and did find the roadbed in a few places.  I also took some photos of the Plymouth, NY station.  It has been moved several hundred feet south of its original location and rotated 90 degrees. The roof has deteriorated a great deal since my last visit several years ago.  I hope that this is addressed before this piece of history is lost forever. 

Rainy here today with occasional peeks of sun.  I plan to update my layout thread later today.

I hope no one gets sick from drinking a little too much green beer. I'm with Tom, I'll be sticking with some Diet Pepsi.
