    Been gone a WAY long time. Got back and then the PC blew its Power Supply and took the Hard Drive with it.
    Finally, getting back to normal.
    Sitting here with a fever, cough, and a sneeze that'll send a sailboat across a lake.
    I won't make ya'll jealous with the weather report here. I'll just say Miami is 40mi south and across the state.
    Good to see the Morning "How ya doing..." is back. Missed it.

    Hey Spanky,
    A friend of my ol' man had a Caddy just like the pink one there, 'cept it was a hard top. And is that a Toronado that blonde cutie (with the very short shorts) is oggling? Kinda dates me...Love your scenes.:thumb:

    Also, is that 3985 articulated on both engines?? Sure look like mighty tight curves for that monster. Someone posted some links here last week to videos of a UP Challenger...!!! What a monster. I'll try to paste the link.

    Check it out--Awesome engine - turn up the sound when you view them...

    Y'all have a good day.

    What ever the young engineer was driving in October Sky, a Vet I think I need for my layout.

    Afternoon all,

    Spanky, Like your scenes, you have a real talent for arranging photos.

    Chief, Glad to hear the switches came in. Now you can finish your trackwork, if we ever really finish a layout.

    Gus, I watched the first two videos, real nice. Will check out the other later.

    I spent the morning at the TCA Museum. Went to a volunteer meeting. They are looking for more help so I am going to sign up for a couple of days a month. Chose several items and will let them assign me where needed. Getting there is not bad this time of year, 31 miles took me 37 minutes, in the summer, when the tourist swarm in, it can take up to 1-1/2 hours depending on traffic. If you take the back roads to avoid the traffic, you can get stuck behind a horse and buggy, with just enough oncoming traffic to make passing difficult.

    Steamhead - Not only do we run the UP we also have the C-O Alleghany running on our pike. And it's all O27 track
