    Default Running Bear's Coffee Shop LXX

    Okay, this is the new place. Try not to splash coffee on the walls until the paint dries... Well, try not to get coffee on the walls at all....

    Evening fellers. I noticed from the last coffee shop that I haven't touched my layout in over a month aside from running trains. In which that hasn't went as smoothly as it should either. So with that being said I made a deal with the wife to go to my LHS and get some needed items. It'll be the week after next before I get my structures in to replace two in my town row that I'm not too big a fan of. I was a little let down as the hobby shop doesn't carry the Athearn micro bulbs anymore. I can't remember if I still have a set or not. Anyways here's my haul from the hobby shop. I'll be working my locomotives here I only have a handful that I want to focus on so it shouldn't take too much time to work them. Finally found my C&O yellow I've been needing for some time and of course a tree kit. The kit is cheaper than buying armatures and foliage separate. So I get the kits which come with a bottle of glue and foliage. And as suggested LaBelle 106. Which I will most likely use on my SD40 first to see how it performs.

    Good afternoon.

    Terry - On-Star can be relentless. I went through the same thing when they wanted me to continue subscribing on my Silverado and the Buick. Talk about a pain in the butt. I didn't want it in the first place, but being that it is now standard equipment on all GM cars, the buyer doesn't have a choice.

    Eric - It's a good thing you gained weight or the wind may have taken you away.

    Greg - Nice going not turning the power off. At least you didn't do what I did, leave a train running around the layout for a day. By the way, signs arrived, Thanks.

    - When we had a camper, we had a Norcold fridge and had no problems with any of the gas appliances even over 8,000 feet. The only problem is that it took so much longer to cook some item due to the altitude.

    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED almost. For the most part, the A-B-A consist for the North Coast Limited is done. I am still waiting for a few detail parts which were out of stock and on back order. The firecracker Antenna, spark arrestors and MU hoses. Willie, got all of the holes for the hand rails done without breaking a drill bit, but I do have spares. Many tubes of bits from a #60 through #80.

    Chet,

    I love your work. Those locos look great on your layout.

    Attended my friends memorial service this morning. He influenced quite a few people with his faith and his work ethos. He willed his body to science so there was no burial.
    After the service I spent some time catching up with some old friends I haven't seen in a few years. Several of them wanted to come out to see the model railroad. It seems that a couple guys who still attend that church have been out here and have told others about it. I started them out with my YouTube page of videos.
    Spent this afternoon working on some videos for my church, to promote the upcoming Christmas season programs.
    Heck, I might get downstairs to do a little work on some model railroad stuff this evening.
    Riding out to a friends house tomorrow afternoon to watch some football and smoke a cigar, then going on down south of Richmond to see my g'daughter who is now institutionalized.

    CHET - Those F Units all look great. You still have the touch!
    Even the "bow" in a couple of the door grabs on the B Unit is hardly noticeable? (snicker, snicker)

    Thanks for chiming in on the fridge. Norcold even told me that they could not guarantee uninterrupted operation above 5000'.
    RV man in Apple Valley (that looked at it while we were at Big Bear) said it could be a pressure or trash in line, but he has them working at higher altitudes Works beautifully here.

    Outta here for a few hours -- Bunco group turkey dinner tonight and with Spousal Unit still on her road trip I cannot afford to miss a free turkey dinner.......
    Cheers

    Hi gang. Haven’t posted here much over the past month because I've had nothing of consequence to report about the layout, other than clearing out some more aisle space. Even though the outdoor yard work season has ended, my energy deficit has put a serious damper on my mrr enthusiasm.

    I just saw my doctor Friday morning for a six-month checkup appt; my BP numbers were good (118/72), so he agreed to try weaning me off the Clonidine. Now I’ll be taking just 1 pill in the morning and 2 at night, and he wants me to come back in a month to make sure the BP is still good. That’s the good news; the bad news is that I might have an ulcer. I’ve had this mild pain in my upper abdomen for ~2 weeks, and during the last few days I’ve been belching up acid – even after eating bland foods like cereal. So he put me on a medicine similar to Nexium, which I was taking as a “maintenance” drug until I stopped taking six months ago [because it blocks calcium absorption]. I hope this prescription will only be temporary, and that I won’t have pick between the two scourges of Barrett’s Esophogus or osteoporosis.

    One of these days I’ll resume working on my layout…honest!

    I was under doctors watch for about 20 years with the Barrett's Esophagus and eventually all traces of it went away. I was on Nexium for a long time and cut out caffeinated drinks and foods from my diet. I recently had another endoscopy for the Barrett's and still not a trace of it. I do get heartburn if I eat pizza or a large meal.
