    Eight months ago I ordered a new drive wheel assembly for my Genesis Light Pacific. It finally came in today. I hope to have some time this weekend to install it and finally get the loco running.

    Good morning,

    The breakfasts sure look good to a guy on a low fat diet. :cry:

    Just finished a breakfast of soy bacon and cerial.

    Weather here to get to 62 and raining. Yesterday was beautiful, spent some time outdoors doing some late lawn and garden cleanup. Even the goldfish in the pond are active.

    Leaving to babysit two granddaughters shortly, wife and daughter taking the oldest of the three out to celebrate her birthday. She likes to get away with adults once in a while. She is 7 going on 21. :)

    Maybe later will get back to working on the catenary. Sent an email to LHS last evening and ordered more as when I got the first batch the layout was smaller.

    Enjoy your trains,

    Made a good haul today.

    I just got back from the LHS in Alexandria (not so local). I made out like a fat rat! I got 2 Athearn RS3's for $30 and 2 Athearn F7A's for $40. That's like half price on all of them.

    Hi Guys
    Finished the main line of "The Ware River Line" in Bachmann roadbed track. The sidings are still in LL but that is okay. Expanded the Boston/Maine and Providence/Cape Cod outlets. Each will now hold a six car cut. Blew out the second main line as it was useless for traffic. Used it to finish a rough laid track for "The Ames Ridge". Have not decided if it will get it's own yard, but that is for the future anyway. I now have eight traffic points plus a yard. That should be enough for 1 man on powerpacked control dc.

    Best news of all, I got my XP computer back after10 days on an Me. Big difference! John

    Morning all. Going into the 70's!!!!! Off to Todd's Train Depot. Tanker, you are moving right along with that project. Carpeted to floor in the walk-in attic yesterday [thought that carpet would be better than flooring for trains that might drop] and did some of the benchwork in there to match the holes in the walls. Hope to get more done before I go to NH Monday. Might have trains running complete circles soon. Have a good one.

    Hey Chief, Have a real good friend who lives in hammlett, I use to go there before they restored the station its a nice place to sit and watch trains go bye, From what I hear they moved the station out of the Wye and took down the cannopy that ran along the old tracks? Want to get back there some day.
    I have spent most of this week building a table for Thomas and friends, I do believe that my soninlaw (which has now been bitten by the train bug), son , grandson and daughter and myself are having more fun with the thomas set than anything else this Christmas has brought.
    Welloff to the addition for me working to get it done now that the holidays are past.
    Yall have fun now,
