I get it, the caboose is its own forum. Clever.

Morning. Off to the store. Tried to get to teh CSX yard I saw the other day from interstate. Maybe today and take pictures. May have to get back on interstate and pay tolls to get there. Later
Morning from Orlando. Fly out earlier than usual. Will get home before midnight. Have a good one and God bless.
Afternoon. Lines of Tstorms coming through. Been off line and disconnected. Need the rain. God bless.
Did anyone leave any "hard stuff" to drink.....we're doin' inventory! Sun's out, enjoy the storms, they were "fun" here. Looks like there won't be many new locos for a long while, a new radiator for the car just took precedence. Oh well, coffee and a donut, and back to countin' bits.
Well today went fairly well for me. Then around 4pm it started to rain & hail outside and the temp dropped from the high 60's to the high 40's. We are supposed to get SNOW yeah I said SNOW tonight and I thought it was not supposed to snow in April. Geez.
Good Morning Everyone. The tempature is 26 Degrees. Only supposed to get up in the 40's today. Big change from this past week. I'm just going to sit here at home since I don't have work today. Maybe I will work on my trains since I haven't done anything with them in awhile.
Good Morning All from NE Ohiowhere the temp is 34 deg and headed to 45 deg with Blue Clear Skies.
Matt - we were the same yesterday, 66 deg for ealry afternoon high, then within 2 hours it droped to 38 deg.
Chief - hope you had a safe trip.
Open house at the museum was great with over 200 visitors!
Next OTTS meeting is April 14.

Morning all. More Tsotrms yesterday and then winds hit last night. No damage as I can tell but it really sucked the main door to our Town Meeting Hall open several times. Then it rained some. Carolina Blue Skies this AM. :thumb: Cooler than yesterday [got to 80 I think] with a breeze. Still going into the 60's or 70. Ran trains at 11:30 PM after Town Board meeting last night [wife gone so could make the noise]. God bless.
MTH catalogs BG&E log cars
Actualy Elk River Coal and Lumber who owned the BG&E (Buffalo, Gauley and Elk RR)
I dont follow the catalogs closely so this may have been on the shelves for sometime but I noticed today while buying some HO stuff for a multi gauge layout.
There is a web site for ERC&L. I was a monitor there once. I would have to google it up now.
AS a boy I had a piece of thier scrip and still have it and I found a picture postcard of a coal hopper setting in the woods.
Those began my live long love with mining and logging railroads in W Va.
God, I am thankful to live in such a place as this. You can realy get a rould in summer and explore the past and the present to your hearts' full
I have about 500 piece of coal and lunbe scrip, as well as related items in my collections.
I will be returning back to the hobby shop to lay a way those cars, nuless the guy will take scrip
Personaly I think the cars are WAY over preiced but I am glad the road name is offered. I may think twice before I buy more than one. I usualy make my own amd letter them with transfers.
Evenin' all. Weather all over the place today -- very nice light snow in the afternoon.
Matthew: Don't know how it is way down south there, but the rule in Canada is: Last snow of the winter as late as June 30; First snow of winter as early as July 1. Just realized we're passing near your way on Thursday (down 99); hope the weather sorts itself out.
Ayuh, just as I 'spected. Eleven months of wintuh, and one month of bad sleddin'
That's neat you will be passing by. Right now the Temp here is 21 with show on the ground. It is still snowing somewhat here right now. Supposed to warm up by Tomorrow.
Good Morning All from NE Ohiowhere the temp is 32 deg and headed to 45 deg with overcast skies.
Yesterday we had Clear Blue Skies until about 4:30pm then came the clouds and rain that turned to light snow.
60103 - At lest that cuts down on the amount of grass cutting that you have to do.
Gil - Nice log car.
Off to another Job interview this morning
Next OTTS meeting is April 14.
