    Here is a link to a paper model site for free download of pdf file of haunted houses most are 1/66 th scale a tad under S but should be able to adjust to whatever scale you work with via a color copier.

    All that the sites owner requests is that if you pass the files on to someone else that you keep the authors name intact on the file:cool:

    Good evening everyone. was a long day with a interesting that, it took awhile. Was glad to get home. Did some work on the Doll house. John, it is really starting to take shape. Kids are having fun while I try not to get frustrated with the help.

    Got a package in the mail today. I started viewing already. Thanks.
    Check was mailed off for the Savannah and Atlanta engine. Though I am not ready to run her, I can hardly wait till she arrives.

    Going to be getting together with some good friends next Friday. It is very nice when you can catch up with good friends who you have not seen in awhile.
    Hope everyone is feeling better these days and that we have a blessed week.

    Good evening folks! Prayers for the sick and families and friends. Sun cleared off the streets pretty much today and after I cleared all that snow from in front of the drive and mailbox due to the plow [​IMG] I'll be back to work tomorrow for sure. Put in a couple hours on the basement and actually finished insulating outside walls. Need to insulate the walls around the bathroom - it separates the playroom from the bedroom. But, first I need to finish up some plumbing and electric in there. I think I need to move one of the pipes I put in already [​IMG] It's always something, isn't it? Oh well, Doug is out, but I think I might strap on my snowshoes and head over to Sir James' house for desert. Kurt, you in? Chewy needs a little walk [​IMG]

    Dennis, no problemo man! How about some pics of your dollhouse? Jeffrey, nice pic as always. Welcome back, Jon! We have an office in FL and if I thought I could get my wife to give up this arctic paradise, I'd have the family moved pretty soon, LOL. Summers aren't any worse than St. Louis either.... OTOH, where would I put my trains?

    Kurt - :roll1:

    Brutus, I really do need to work out the photo posting thing. Problem is with this darn computer...when I try to attach photos, it won't work. I have tried multiple time to send photos to John Baker in England and each time, the computer has a error message and talks about "connectivity".

    Jon, if your travels to Florida take you on the road route, we are not too far off I75. You could always make a layover here as we are about 1.5 hours from the Florida border. We have 4 spare bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, so plenty of room.

    Anyway, hope everyone has a good night.

    Evening. More snow for those Yanks. :thumb: Got neighbor's dog [young huskie with blue eyes] is in our back fence. Dodging the law due to ex-wife's lies. She is really great animal. Will look after her for a few. Burg might not be happy as she is now on his turf but he goes to visit her when "she runs the cable". Shirt sleeve weather here. Even now as only a little chilly. Wish I had time to go fishing tomorrow. Seeing small bass swiming around the edge of the pond. I am sure the Crappie are biting. Jon, glad you had a good time in FL. Later.
  7. I have had a delightul evening. I called Time Warner and cancelled the cable. We now have WOW and the picture is so much clearer. :thumb:

    Evening. Where is Shake and Bake [Don Baker] ? Didn't get to call him. Buckeye, Big Oink was trying to do damage control on water and got piglets to try and help. Your great photo you sent me of the guys fishing shows how real water looks. Thanks for the help. Off to bed.

    Good morning folks

    As I rolled out onto the roads this morning it was 34 F on its way to 55 F. Guess what we have more rain coming this weekend.

    I didn’t get any modeling last night. We had Cub Scout Den Meetings.

    Not much else to report.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Brutus: I'm still here! Feel free to pop on over anytime! We're usually home.

    Been working on parts order for Crane...Whata mess. I found a parts list at olson's but I don't think everything is right on it. I found duplicates of parts when researching numbers. Been cross-refrencing the 165, 182, 2660 parts, and still have questions.

    I found a 'good' paint sample on the interior of a 2400 frame. I think I will send it to the paint shop for a color match...I bought 2-cans of silver at retail stores, and have not been happy...It will be cheaper in the long run to just get it matched.

    Bride getting burnt out on working all the time. I have her scheduled for a massage this weekend. She will be heading out of the country on business again the end of the month.

    Morning all!

    Jeffrey - another nice photo today!

    Kurt - finding parts can be a pain but it is also fun. My bride is also burned out on travel - my traveling!:cry:

    Raining here, low 40's. and supposed to turn into SNOWHIZO tonight! Buckeye, Chuck, and Tom keep trying to throw it my way - but it will be 65 by Sat!
    Train club meeting tonight and for once I am free to go! :thumb:

    CTT forum seems locked up this morning :confused:

    Hope everyone has a great day today!

    Howdy y'all! Finished up my case and I hope to be heading to the house. I have some errands to run and must call SWMBO to see what else I have. Sometimes it is good to have someone else running the schedule, especially when so much is poured on one's shoulders.

    I am making more progress on the doll house. Have the first floor done, the second underway, and should be working on third level tonight. A lot of little details to do the final touches, but should be nice when done. Thanks to John F. for the photos to go by. Fills in the details left out of the instructions.

    Hope everyone has a great day,

    Good Evening All
    I had visitors today. Two of my grandsons 3 & 5yrs,stopped by to see the Hogwarts X run for awhile. I couple a trainsounds tender on the rear and off we go. they like to hear it talk. nice thing about that age,no rivet counters,don't care if a tender is on the rear of the train. Temp reached 37 today,more melting but big storm is not going to be very far south of here so the forcasters aren't sure where it is going yet. Later all,,S.J. :oops:

    Evening Gang,

    Well I'm making progress, I finally got all of my Atlas stuff on the inventory. A lot of the time is taken up hunting up pictures as I didn't want to take a lot of stuff out of boxes to take pictures. Most can be found on the Atlas site but not easy to find. Some I actually got from ebay and some from dealer sites. Pictures for all but one or two items which I will take when all is finished. Now have started on Lionel, not as much as Atlas but quite a bit. Still have K-line, MTH, Weaver and Williams. Oh and RMT, guess that is it.

    Dennis, glad to hear the DH is coming along. I am about to start #4. Was going to wait till Christmas 09, but daughter tells me that the 5 year old is playing with the 7 year olds doll house more than she is. They actually share things very well. When they move to the newer home, each will have their own room so there will be room for another doll house. This one is going to be a log style home. Something different than I have done before.

    Spent a couple of hours transplanting in the greenhouse this afternoon, with the doors open. Really nice day, like summer. :mrgreen:

    With all of the above, no time to run trains, make a few laps for me Chuck. :thumb:

    Chief, I have a question. I read this post of yours a couple of times and I'm not quite sure when you are talking about the dog and when you are talking about the ex-wife, care to clarify?

    "Evening. More snow for those Yanks. :thumb: Got neighbor's dog [young huskie with blue eyes] is in our back fence. Dodging the law due to ex-wife's lies. She is really great animal. Will look after her for a few. Burg might not be happy as she is now on his turf but he goes to visit her when "she runs the cable". Shirt sleeve weather here. Even now as only a little chilly.

    Neighbor is hiding from the "Law". They know where he is but do not want to arrest him. His ex-wife claims he assalted her. She does this everytime she gets mad at him. Same thing she has done to ex-boyfriends. Domestic violance law says she is right until you are proven innocient. Backwards to US justice system. I have his dog in my back fence. Dog should not be his as he does not take good care of it. Doing him favor and not turning it over to Animal Control. Really sweet dog. Learning some manner with me. Got to go. Later
