    This is the new place. Those of you coming in out of the snow, wipe your feet...

    Evening All,

    It's so bright and shiny in here...hurts...eyes. Today I started on the 2 flat kits today. Of course I spent 10 minutes looking for a small part that I dropped. Tomorrow I have to drive into Orlando for a errand. It will take me longer to drive there than I will be there. It looks like the Sarasota trip is being delayed until next week.

    Willie- Nice new avatar. The building looks great.

    Garry- Nice looking locos.

    Chet- Nice picture.

    Johnny- I was going to say something about the track but you figured it out. I made the same error when I started out laying track.

    I hope everyone has a good night.

    ( Rubbing feet on mat sound as I pull off my scarf & hat) Oh, da smell of new paint! Love it!

    Flo, be a dear and bring me a Rootbeer float please!

    Sherrel I agree, we need another 4-8-4 reborn like we need another Ho F-unit. I may be biased because of the road name, but how about this?



    Western Maryland #202 needs to run free again! I'm sure the WMSR would give her a fine place to stretch her legs!

    Were battening down the hatches tonight, snowblower is parked between the cars in the garage facing out, ready for the snowpacolypse ! Thank goodness the mailman brought this today! Now I won't be bored if I can't get out tomorrow!

    It will however be repainted in Maryland Midland blue & orange once the weather warms the garage up.

    Exactly, Karl, I like #202- good looking Pacific. Now, Is that funny looking double-ended thingy a new one? I thought you got that a week or two ago?
    Personally, I think the WM blue and Orange is pretty!

    Wow.. Garrys Nashville576 and Karls Western Maryland 202 are just amazing. So great to see something that old restored. What is the tank above the main wheels in the 202? is it a steam like turbine or compressor like device?

    Well I hope you guys are doing ok, just a few hours before we get hit and Mass was changed to a blizzard as apposed to a heavy storm warning. Connecticut just a few miles south of me has been warned of a blizzard all day.

    Check your batteries, radios, flashlights and other survival gear, many I bet will loose power.

    See all you Engineers later!!!

    Karl .... I'm glad to seee WM 202 covered and protected from rain. It would be nice too see 202 in action.

    CB&Q 4960, a 2-8-2 was operated for steam excursions by the the railroad in the 1960's. Now the Grand Canyon Railway owns it and sometimes runs it.
