    I've found my .357 Magnum works best for those.

    I've quit buying games and toys for the g'kids. They bust up the toys so fast and don't ever play the games. Sweaters and p'jamas.
    The last train stuff I got for my g'sons, they use em like race cars, on the carpet. Tore the couplers off when they snagged.

    Good morning.
    It's raining and 40. Supposed to mix, and change over to sn*w later this morning. They are forecasting up to 2" of wet snow. You can't find a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk within a hundred miles of here...

    Good Morning All. A frosty 18 and clear skies here on this Friday morning. Weather Underground stations within a five mile range nearby are reporting anywhere between 15 and 22; not that it matters much, it's still cold outside. Had to put on shoes to water the tree when I got up. That first freeze is 16 days later than average this year. Going up to 50 later today and 70 for Sunday and Monday. Shopping trip yesterday went well, no mishaps. Used my Kroger gas points to buy gas at 60 off per gallon. Incredible! Filled up my wife's Acura RDX with premium grade for $2.00/gal. Regular at the same place is $2.15/gal before discount.

    Out in the train shed, I put the finishing touches on the small memorial park located in the center of the small town business district that I have been working on.

    The aerial view was too blurred to post.

    Thanks for the comments regarding that small cityscape, Johnny, Chet, Garry, Curt, and anyone else that I may have missed. I already have ten structures ready (well except for curtains) including two Merchant's Row kits, for most of that blank area. My first step though, is determining whether or not I want to add a grade crossing there. I really don't like making them and my engineers really don't like interacting with them.

    Johnny - Oh my! Rookie mistake. Never refuse a train room purchase from your wife. Always display them prominently afterwards and she'll continue. Regarding the streets, like Chet posted, adding parking lanes does indeed eat up some real estate, but adds to the realism. On that section that I posted, that entire part of the town is on an add-on piece of plywood that I attached to the corner of the upper deck. I did so because I wanted more than just a line of structures along the edge. I have that elsewhere. Sort of like having track go "through a scene" rather than "by a scene"
    Terry - Unless one is in the big city, parking meters are pretty much absent in the area that I loosely model. I have seen them though, but I cannot remember who makes them.
    Chet - Nice historical photos.
    Garry - I can look at your pictures over and over and still get inspiration.
    Eric - It's so good to hear about your return to normalcy in GA. I hear you in regard to the trainroom. I did three different layouts in my old trainroom as practice to the one that I am working on now. We learn new and better stuff as we go along. Too bad the new gun cannot really be used for flea control!
    Sherrel - If you're still out there, be safe. I see where Temecula is in a danger zone from the current fires. Prayers for all out there that may be affected.

    Everybody have a great day.

    Good morning. 18 degrees to start off the day with a high expected in the mid 30's this afternoon.

    Justin - Impressive photo. Nicely done.

    Willie - That town is coming along nicely.

    Sherrel - I hope you are safe from those wild fires. Not quite in your area, but they're moving all over southern California.

    Curt - The water tower is really coming along nicely. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see in on place on your layout.

    Eric - Nice pea shooter. Enjoy it. Those snowflakes aren't going to hurt you.

    Joe - My dad did let loose with some stories, especially after I decided to jin the Navy. I don't think he scratched the surface. After reading the history in DANSF years after he passed away I was amazed. https://www.history.navy.mil/researc...hester-ii.html , they seemed to be in the middle of some big battles in the Pacific. 11 battle stars is quite an accomplishment. Quite the old war horse.

    Doesn't look like much will get done on the trains this weekend. I found out last night that my wife volunteered me to install a laminate floor in one of our friends from the bowling leagues home. Would be nice if she checked with me first.

    Here's a rail photo for the day.
