    Good morning. Starting off at 58 degrees with cloudy skies. Maybe we'll gat a shower today.

    Garry - Thanks for posting those photos. These are the first photos I have seen of your layout from a distance showing more of your layout. Impressive.

    Karl - Like the gun control post. So true. Those locomotives do look nice. I have bought from Terry also and would have no reservations to do it again. Funny that you should mention power washing. We are in the last stages of finishing out back deck and yesterday we scrubbed the back deck so stain can go on today. We got a product from Home Depot made for cleaning decks. I had thought about power washing but was advised not to. Ken D&J made a good point. Power washing can be rough on surfaces. This deck was built 40 years ago and this is only the second time we have worked on it. I had replaced the deck surface around 15 years ago with redwood. It is on the north side of the house and in the winter the snow can stay on the deck for a long time. The deck was works extremely well. Glad that they had some good people who knew their stuff at Home Depot.

    Curt - Thanks for posting those photos. This looks like it will become another huge empire like Ken's in MD. Would like to see some update photos if possible.

    Sherrel - As mentioned, that would be an interesting industry to model. Glad to see that you are getting more sleep.

    Ken D&J - Nice video. Always enjoy seeing action on your layout.

    Took a couple of videos last night at the club. I did bring my old Atlas RS units last night. It was nice to have something with some guts. The Atlas RS-1 I bought with DCC was such a wimp that it could only handle 8 cars on this grade. I did pull the grade with only 2 of my DC RS units, but then they wanted me to pull their track cleaning car which weighs a ton. It is the UP car right behind the locomotives. 2 locomotives were able to do the job, but were atarting to struggle a but with the addition of the track cleaning car so I put a third locomotive in.



    It was a busy night there last night with a lot of visitors. We have plenty of trains running for their entertainment.

    Here's my rails photo for the day.

    Chet: can't beat those DC powered Atlas Alcos, eh?

    Garry: That's a large expansion. going to look great.

    Sherrel: I thought I was the only one that "lost" large posts .

    Jerry: I never get that type of mileage out of a lap top, maybe 4 years at best. The worst part will be acclimating yourself to WIN10's quirks.

    Louis: Birds won, big; Nat's win, after a long rain delay, was at a steep price. Bryce Harper hurt his knee. The Popeye Cartoon was great.

    Good morning guys, 68 and some scattered rain today.

    We survived our day sailing on Lake Superior, it was very calm at first, but a little puff of wind came up and we had a couple hours of nice sailing. I was surprised how easy it was, just put up the sails, set the auto pilot, and watch and relax.

    The wife got a bit seasick, she is cured of any further sailing adventures. I will probably go out again, however.

    I shared Chets' (I think) quote about the boat, and everyone got a big kick: Boat: a hole in the water you throw money into. My nephew, the boat owner, agreed.

    I am taking a few more days off before I start buiding the water tank. It doesn't look too difficult, mainly a matter of getting the materials together. I decided to go scratch build other than buying the spout kit.

    EVERYONE have a pleasant Sunday afternoon!

    The day he buys it.
    The day he sells it.

    Good Evening All,

    Did some house chores earlier. We got a downpour for about 20 minutes today. If you walk outside you can feel the moisture in the air. I attempted to make the roof removable on the sand house. After spending around 90 minutes I still could not get it to fit like it should. I decided to glue the roof on with several bad words. I also sprayed the corrugated roofing sheets (from wild west) with Rustoleum Caramel Brown (close to a box car red but browner). Tomorrow I plan on attaching the roofing and then dry brushing Polyscale zinc chromate and a craft country grey.

    VA Ken- Very nice video with the multiple trains.

    Louis- Will do.

    Willie- I usually change the couplers immediately, but the only cars I have bought in a long time were kits.

    Garry- Great pic's. You should do a layout video.

    Chet- Great video. I like the multiple RS units.

    I hope everyone has a good night.

    Sherrel and others, re loosing posts. Before beginning all over again, have a look at the bottom left of the 'Quick Reply' field to see if it says 'Restore Previous Content'. Every so often as you're typing a message, in a little yellow box at the bottom right, saying 'Auto saved' will appear. The forum's software saves whatever you have written, and by clicking that 'Restore' box (Gray) you'll get whatever was written before it was saved back again.

    I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
