    Big coup on the YANKS. Notice the bowls of GRITS [not mentioned by the Yanks] sitting at everyone's plate. Should have seen everyone of their faces when waiter came out and started putting out bowls of grits and said, "I understand you guys love GRITS." :D :thumb:

    Really had a great time. Sun is out this AM. Off to the store and then flight home. Have a good one.

    Good Afternoon All!
    I hope the coffee is still fresh.
    Not much to report from the land of Buckeyes on this warm Spring morn.

    I took my morning walk and of course took a 3 hour "rest" at the T&OC station and talked to old friends as we waited on NS to run 'em. Sadly 4 trains in 3 hours isn't exactly "running 'em"..I understand there is a back up of trains waiting to enter the Bellevue yard and several backed up outbound trains as well.
    I plan on going back if things gets busier..
    I shall have a cup and look over the forum.
    Have a good day all!

    Good afternoon,

    Beautiful day here, got near 60 & sunny. Spent some time in the greenhouse transplanting some seedlings. Also uncovered the pond filter & cleaned it with wife's help and she took out the heater. She also got out the porch furniture which usually brings on a batch of bad weather. :D

    Might actually run some trains later. I started putting people in some passenger cars and may finish one of those.
