    It will be a busy weekend for sports. My son has an indoor soccer game Saturday morning. My daughter has softball tryouts indoors on Saturday. I am there most of the Saturday and Sunday too since I am managing a team in the 9 and 10 year old girls division. My daughter also has a basketball game on Sunday. We will also be working on finishing my son’s pinewood derby car.

    If I ever make it to the basement I would like to continue on the F&C coal car. I also have eight two-bay hoppers and three gondolas to weather. Then there is laying track over the newly installed track bed, continue laying track bed and maybe start ballasting the newly laid track.

    i am getting something done. You better believe it. I finally am getting a good start on this layout party thing, and I also have some boxcabs to finish detailg and a caboose to work on. Of course, all that comes after the exam today, and after rebuilding the carburetor on my car, and after I bottle some beer.

    busy, busy.

    Going to try to finish up my layout party project. I need to so I can get back to working on my tracks.

    Also, there's another train show in Phoenix. I'm going to go to it, but if it's as bad for N scalers as the last two I went to, forget anymore in the future. The one last week was in a room about double the size of a two-car garage, not much room, but you would have thought the one in Mesa that Jim Currie and myself went to would have been great being at the convention center. Hah! Big room but full of O and G folks.

    Well my club is having a train show tomorrow but two days ago I woke up with a bad case of broncoitis and have spent the last two day trying to cough up a lung. I'll have to call and tell the others that I can't go or I'll probably get worse again.
    As far as modeling project go I'll work on my mine project, hopefully finishing the walls and assembling them. Haven't figured out the roof yet. I'm leaning to corrugated metal though. And I think I'll get started on the club's engines, addding details and getting them ready for painting.

    Well actually it's Saturday as I type this but I am working on my TTRAK modules (one actually) and will post an update to my layout party hopefully tomorrow.

    I am also working on two buildings one of which I made from the new Walthers Modular kits.The other is the Hallmark Cards church that I have extended also using the Walthers bits and pieces.

  9. Late start to the weekend for me, but as of 10am tommorow im taking the entire layout down and rebuilding the bench work. Not happy with the stability and square of it. Todays purchase of a new 10" mitre saw will fix that. Pics to follow.
