    A great wench! :mrgreen: Ours started two weeks ago and goes until early August. My wife and I are people watchers, and the Renn Fair is a target rich environment! Also good entertainment, food, aforementioned beverages and often some good artwork and craftsmanship.

    Beautiful day here, but wife has to work a twelve hour shift to cover antoher nurse's emergency leave, so I'll have to soak up the sun while working through that blasted honey-do list and planting new bonsai stock purchased yesterday. Then some additional surveying and pondering on the future layout site. I'm starting to get a bad itch...:mrgreen:

    We had a nice summer day, there was rain around us but we did not get any, We spent the afternoon at a local park with #2 son & family. Their church was having the annual picnic and we know a lot of the members so we went to visit with folks. No trains ran here today, but like always, they are not forgotten. S.J.

    Mountain Man - it's mold resistant drywall. Never had any water in the basement, except when a sink leaked. But, don't want to take a chance on it either!

    CSX - :thumb: Once I get the room done, I'll be putting in a lot more work and a couple more tables, too!

    Brampton a small(ex) mining village between Barnsley and Rotherham in Yorkshire, got flooded in last summers storms.
    60103, A Gresley LNER Pacific locomotive built in 1927 as class A3, a rebuild/development of the A10 of 1922, fitted with double chimney and smoke deflectors [alas long gone to the great shed in the sky!].
    Cloudy and dry in Stockport expected high 18C. We had high winds yesterday, shook a lot of leaves out and broke a few branches, scrag end of the biggy you had up the East Coast about a week ago.
    No train stuff today, being Monday it's washing and ironing [I hate ironing].
    I'm going to do a full system scan on ERNI, I suspect a Gremlin has got loose.
