    Morning all, I'll have freach toast and bacon I think! Its about 3, supposed to get up to 10, going to be like that the next couple of days then warm back up to the 20s.....spring is right around the corner!!!!

    The other half and I were talking and have decided that if that Thomas thing that everyone has been posting pictures of come back to Duluth or the twin cities this year we are going to give my son the money to take his boys. They both love trains!

    Have a great day everyone!

    You are close, it was made by Ford,


    We also have several other Edisels


    Some say that I have as much money in my 1/43 cars as I do in my 'O' :rolleyes: Gauge trains ! :D

    The last one is made by Franklin Mint. I don't remember who made the wagon, but you can pick it up from DiecastDirect. And yes, these do cost a little more than $5.00 eacch :cry:

    Good Morning All!
    Not much to report from the land of Buckeyes..Its fairly mild out this morning and the temp is 37 with calm winds.Once again NS living up to that old adage "Run 'em till they drop"..I been up since 7:30 and NS is averaging a train every 20 minutes.

    I was in the process of adding screws to the Athearn coupler boxes on the cars I plan on using during our up coming open house and I realize I need to order some..The only reason I am doing this project is because the club rule 15.1 under freight car operating rule 15 states "All cars use during public shows must have the coupler box held on by a screw yadda,yadda etc".Silly rule anyway.

    Tonight for supper I am going to have "mulligan stew" made with fresh frozen veggies with beef cubes with pan bread..

    I shall have a cup and look over the forum.

    Have a nice day all!

And yes its in writing that the ball and chain and I are paying:D .....we think that this year it will be just a mom and dad (both work so a little special time with the boys is good:thumb: ) affair and next year it will be papa's turn.
