    All I got for Xmas

    All i got for Christmas was a computer that went bust. Thought that it would put an end to the on line railroad adventure. A friend came up with a used PC for the best price of all. Free! It would not take my ISP, so I fired them and changed.

    Stopped by the LHS and picked up three #4 switches for my yard. My #1 Main line is now 80% swapped.from LL to Bachmann road bed track. Talked to the owner about Kato.
    Said it was top quality but about 30% more $$ than the Bachmann. So far few problems with the new track. Most of my derails are due to light cars.

    Morning all, got about 4" of the white stuff yesterday. Heading to Fargo this morning, going to spend the day with one son and his soon to be, then going to listen to "Sons of Poseidon" tonite. Our son does their sound stuff.

    But being in Fargo means I get to go to a Hobby shop!

    Have a great day all.

    Was up to 1 AM wiring switches to aux power and the remotes. Holes in the wall for running trains into the walkin attic. Got straight sections of track today so will try to get started in there with framing benchwork. Got to take down the outside Christmas now. Reversed the sidings and operation on the left side [coming in the main door] of layout. Wife has been home so can not spend all my time on trains [like when she is at work]. Got a "messy" two weeks coming so will no have a lot of train time. Town Board, meetings and visit retired pilot [over night] this coming week, fly to NH for meeting [retirement job] the next.

    Cutting holes in plaster walls was a job. The two main lines on the left will go straight through [curved tracks are ther just so I could get distnace for engines to back up too]. Coal siding will curve and go through tunnel. Temp foam portals to help with looks.

    Right side main lines will curve and go through portal. Got some straights today to move it more inline,

    We drove down to Buffalo today to visit a hobby shop and Border's and Cracker Barrel. Very cold and wet this morning -- the wipers froze a bit as we set out and there was a touch of snow (not in the forecast) but by 2 o'clock there was blue sky visible and becoming better.
    Couldn't find anything I was desperate for in the Hobby shop came home with a bunch of DVDs and a micrometer.
