    Did anyone see me at the race? I was waving to you. I was the sweating guy in the White Sox cap with ear plugs. Guess i'm getting used to spending the summer weekend out of doors without feeling bad about working on the layout. It's sure nice and cool in the basement. Roy, why do you have to hose down the hose foundation when its hot?

    Doug, Texicans have to do that. Dries out so bad that the soil [Texas type] cracks and the houses shift and will crack. So when it gets dry and hot, they water down their foundations like I soak my garden.

    Afternoon guys,
    Thanks Chief for spreading the news. Did a little tour of the site when I got home. I had been on the CTT site this morning and then tried to come over here, but the hospital mainframe takes this as a chat site and won't let it through the gate. It is good to see Dr. John along with the rest of the crew. I am struggling with the passenger layer of the layout plan. Hope to spend a little time and get through it tonight, if the kids let me.
    In my search of this site, looks like a lot of other scales/gauges are here. It is good and bad. Good in that we can get some ideas for scenery, etc. Bad in that lots of stuff to dig through to get to O gauge. Overall, I like it. Not as much as CTT, but I am biased.
    Take care and God Bless,

  13. OK, John, click on REPLY and then go down to " Manage Attachments " and click on
    browse. It will show your documents. Click on one like attaching to an e-mail. Then hit

    stooges8 Hello All! CSXJohn- Nice picture of the Highball in Conneaut. I went inside of that museum a few years ago & it is very interesting. I wish they did a better job of protecting the Nickel Plate Berk outside of the museum or better yet try to get it running again. Now that would be something to see. Chief- Hope you have fun in Ohizo.Be aware that the Grits Detectors are up & running at our Airports:) Doug- Did not see you on TV. I was under the weather yesterday & was in bed most of the day. Feel much better today. Take Care all.:)

    He guys..spent some time in the hobby shop today then did a meeting and visited mom, she is doing a lot better.

    I got about 40 worth of lands scaping to dress up buildings and some to put away for lay out work.

    Got a bunch of metal stumps too.

    I thought I would try one of those laser cut buildings so I choose a company house.

    I am originally from Jersey, but have long since moved south. Grew up in Northern NJ next to Hackensack. Anyway, it is good to be here. I know most of the guys from the CTT group.

    CSXT30 - John, posting pics here is very easy to do. Once you have the Address from the properites list, copy it as aways and then click on the icon that looks like a letter with the mountain on it. Just past the address in the window and click ok.
