    Ray – I can’t say who made it. It was at a friends house. I will have to ask him about it. It did look rather old.

    2 rail scale – how about NO rails, just overhead catenaries, and I don’t think it’s scale at all, but is ‘O’ gauge. :thumb:

    Morning gang. Gil, you are leaving me to fight those Yankees by myself. :( Well, hope I recruit Ray to help. Haven't seen Roger drop in for a while. Kind of chilly here and windy. Those Yanks are sending their weather down on us. Got meeting at Town Hall this afternoon. Start paitning widow lady's house tomorrow. Actually pressure wash it tomorrow, spray primer Thursday and spray paint Friday [that is my plans]. He sons are suppose to come help me. ???? Got all my reservations to fly way up Nawth Nov 4. Think it is going to really be cold in MN. Have a great day and God bless all. PS: my notifier seems not to be working some of the time???????

    I will check back some time. You are all to kind.:wave:
  12. Hey, Guys.

    It was dry here in St. Louis. You must have gotten the weather we had this weekend. Now it's just cold.

    Sounds like some of you'all need to come down here and spend the winter in the sun.
    It was mostly sunny, in the 70s today and I cooked burgers on the grill.
    I had my fill of snow, so I moved. We get snow here but it usually melts before noon.
    Just enough to remind you what it is like.

    Good luck on your project. Your friend is in our prayers.

    Check back in sometime!

    Beautiful day here in N. Texas. High 60's and very sunny.

    Had second class of Robotics today for the 5th and 6th graders I volunteer for and teach after school once a week. Good crew of kids.

    The high school robotics team I mentor captured thrid place last weekend and are advancing to State competition in 6 weeks.

    Have a great evening all!

    Best regards,

    where the temp is 42 deg and heading to 48 with still more rain. Maybe Chief will need to build me a boat instead of benchwork. :eek:

    Gil - good to see that you can still stop by once in a while.

    Roy - good to see you stop by. Are you still watering your house ??? :confused:

    Good morning. Looks like another sunny day.
    Yep, still doing the ranch thing.
    I had some sort of flue lately and was lurking more than posting.
    Now I have to get busy and catch up on a few projects.
    I have a couple of Atlas O scale WDT critters I am rebuilding. One will be stock and the other I remotored. regeared and am installing KD couplers and a little extra detail.
    I have a back log in the paint shop that I need to get to.
    Tonight My son and I are going to the train club meeting. It is at the home of a member with a large Lionel collection.
    Here's his web site.
