    Saturday will consist of my son’s last indoor soccer game, grocery shopping, pick up softball equipment, my daughter’s basketball practice, more grocery shopping. Sunday is dedicated to seeing the Harlem Globetrotters with my daughter’s brownie troop. We have a pre-show and after show so we will be there most of the day.

    If I have time I would like to go over the plastered paper towels with some plaster of Paris to smooth it out. If all goes well I may even get it painted. I also have some hoppers that need me to finish upgrading them and get them off thee work bench. Then there is the Atlas U23B that I am supposed to be painting in an LNE fantasy scheme.

    I got big plans for this weekend. I just got a 100 pieces of track and I have a stack of plywood alread cut to use as the benchwork cookie cutter style. I also ran into a problem with the layout that I plan to fix before today is over.

    Combined NMRA Division Meet & N-Trak Club Meet tomorrow. Pull the NTrak module tonite from the hobby shop where its currently at, (the shop is going to put in a permanent layout, YAY!!! :thumb: ), set-up the NTrak module at the meet in the morning. Have BBQ, run trains, shoot the breeze. Sounds like a winner to me! Put in my part fo the initial club Digitrax order. Reassemble a Spectrum Connie that's been decoderized, install a decoder in the second disassembled Connie.

    That should about cover it. :wave:

    Let's see, with any luck I'll have time to install the final lower level benchwork module, and install track through most of it. I'm sooooo close to running trains on the lower loop I can taste it !!!!!!

    I plan to start assembling my waterfront warehouse, first though I have to install 52 window glass and put shades on the office windows. I also have a couple other buildings that I've been working on including a small shop that I'm puting an interior in for my club
  14. I am assembling a branchline heavyweight erie coach using all the optional detail parts also and boy I must say, I really dont like these tiny parts. My glompy mechanic hands find this a little challenging. And this is HO how do n-guys do it?

    In between office work (YUK) and chores (YUK) I'm going to start building a work-bench in the utility room so I can set-up my metal working tools and spray-booth in a permanent location.

    well all Im going to do this week end is, give the frieght cars that I bought on ebay, a little TLC, and KD them, and then I might just watch them run around the FRRR for the first time.. and if the mood taks me, I might just lay a few pieces of track in the storeage road. Apart from that the only other plan is to stay out off the way off my wife,(incase she has other plans for me( and SHE will) you can bet your life on that.... have a good one..steve
