    We have been to the store getting next week food, bank, and post office this morning.

    Hello All! Just dropped by to say hello here. The CTT Forum is still up & running. Just logged off of it. Bill- So sorry about your Mother. Hospice is a very nice place & they will take very good care of your Mom. I've had a few relatives in Hospice over in Cleveland & these places are nice & clean & the patients are kept comfortable if they have any pain. They are not like Nursing Homes where the Patients are ignored or not clean. Just keep this in mind. Take Care all.

    Good evening all,

    No trains today. Jean's day off so shopping and a little babysitting.

    Tom, How big is that museum layout going to be?

    Enjoy your trains.

    Th'e 'O' gauge tin plate layout is 8' x 12' and to large 'O' is going to be 25' x 60' in an E shape. There will be an 'S' gauge above it and 'G' below it.:thumb:

    The 'HO' guage is 16' x 50' with 4 main lines. :D

    Nice work on the benchwork. Looks like the big layout will be reality soon. Good for you guys.

    Hot here. Waiting on the weather report. Was supposed to be 102 here today. Sure felt like it.

    Take care all!

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    where the temp is 70 deg with dew point of 68 deg and heading to 90 deg today. With this humidity, it is going to be very hot.

    Today the OTTS group is headed to the NKP museum in Conneaut Ohio and then to Jefferson for a ride on the AJ and C RR. A fun day ahead.

    Good morning to all,

    Tom, Thanks for the info. That should be some sight when you guys get them all up and running. Do you have a target date for completion? Sounds like you have a nice day planned, enjoy.

    Bill, In our area Hospice is a first class operation. I have had quite a bit (to much actually) of experience with them. They did a great job caring for my step mom before she passed away. Also several friends were well taken care of.

    Roy, Don't envey your weather. I used to be able to work outside all day long in any kind of heat. No more, I guess it is getting older but now I retreat to the AC in the house or basement in the afternoon. We have been getting 80s & 90s with high humidity for the past couple of weeks. No letup in sight. Don't know how Laz can continue to do his morning run in the kind of heat & humidity.

    Those donuts certainly are not helping my diet.:D

    Enjoy the day,

    Hi Everyone ! I was looking at Lynns web site, at his layout & it is really going to be a nice layout, & Very nice benchwork too !!
    A lot of talk about those donuts up there everyday, & every time I see them, I want one !!
    That Depot looks identicle to the one in Ashtabula, Ohio along the old NYC main, now CSX. I'm wondering where that depot is !!
    Good to see John ( Jeffelectric ) here. Nice aquarium car & box car too !
    Well, hope everyone has a nice wekend !
    Thanks, John

    Where the temp is 70 deg and headed to 92 deg with Blue Clear Skies.

    We don't have a completion date for the layout, as you should know, no layout is ever done. With us living on donations, money is always tight. :cry:
