Nice trains...Both big & small...
sorry been busy
Hey guys sorry been away in GA, had to go see my new GRANDSON, the youngest and newest member of the Gauge and mrr and railfan. Introducing Anthony,
4lbs 10oz and came into the world a lot sooner than he was suppose to and scared the hell out of us, but hes one hellva a fighter.balloon6
Well I'm back home now so more to follow and BTW I got some great shots down at the the debutts yard while I was there. I'll post those over in the railfan section in a day or two.
Have a great day,
Tony AKA proud grandpa
Congrats!! Always nice to see a new young (future) modeler
Best of luck to the family!
One more beautiful day here - then damp and cold tomorrow....... The donuts will be warm though
Morning all. Back in NC. WI weather was better than NC. Suppose to change this week and we get warmer and they get cold. Congrats Gramps. Nice looking kid. Must take after its Grandmother. Had great flights but US Airways destroyed my new roller bag. How?????? Got to call them this AM. Meeting with County Commissioners this afternoon so no trains. Reports to do. Home for a while. :thumb: Hope to get layout work done. Have a good one.
Here's my weekend accomplishments
Got three new DPM buildings built and placed on temporary streets/sidewalks, fixed and repainted one turret building twice. Cut a new sliding door in the blue transfer building and built a loading dock, added an entrance door with stairs and false inside walls for later interior modeling. Added speed limit and other trackage signs, and weathered the couplers on rolling stock and diesels.
Things I learned from all this: (1) Painting a detailed brick Nscale building is hard. (2) Glueing Nscale buildings square is harder. Reading the directions would have cut down on a lot of frustration and re-work (see 1 & 2). If you cut wrong with an Xacto knife - make a sliding door to cover up the mistake!
All in all, not a bad weekend in cool North Carolina.
Hey Mikey or anyone tht can help?
I want to know how to get web page started here to post my layout and railpixs?
How do I go about it and what do I do?
HERC, Nice Layout, looking real good.

We got one more nice day - before the cold air comes in
