    Well I guess I've got first kick at the can today.
    I spent most of my spare time this past week building the roadbed for my short narrow gauge line.
    This weekend will have me doing:
    Finally finishing off the warehousew building. All it needs are the wall caps ans sign (might not get the sign done)
    Re-decorating a boxcar for my MR club.
    laying the last 1 1/2' of standard guage track onto the logging section
    working on my scenery elevations for the narrow guage section.
    Run a train
    scratch build a tunnel portal

    Oh yeah and I've got to:
    Mow the lawn
    wash the car
    buy insurance for the summer car
    return some auto ramps to my in-laws

    Could I buy another day?

    This weekend will be nuts! My daughter has a softball game on Saturday. My son has a game on Sunday. From this Saturday to the following Monday we will be living at the ball fields. Between games (daughter has 4, son has 3), practices (daughter 1 so far, son don’t know) we have only Monday and Friday of next week off in the next 10 days. I am not sure what chores and honey dos are waiting for me around the house this weekend.

    If I can I would like to get the road built for the Passenger Station Diorama. If I have a chance I would also like to begin laying the tracks for the trolley line. Since the last piece of the old RLK&T layout was removed last night I would like to continue on working on laying temporary track on the new version on of the layout.

    The plans that I have for the weekend is to start building a roller coaster for my unusuall layout. My son want to work on a scene and we have to get the top shelf ready for the roller coaster and amusement park.

    I am going to operate on a line tonight that recreates part of the Esquimault & Nanimo RR on Vancouver Island. :)

    Saturday and Sunday are probably reserved for bathroom renovations.... :(

  5. I have some interesting Tichy boxcar kits that I'm working on. They have a kit of a 'rebuid' that's totally unique. It's a boxcar that has been rebuilt from a wooden car and has had steel sheathing, updated brake equipment, and other newer details added. It's a great model of a recycled car and it comes with a couple of types of doors to suit your road's taste. The other is the Tichy outside braced wood boxcar that I'm going to update with a few modern appliance details. These will be for my other homeroad, the Camden Terminal Company, and I've been wrestling around with a paint and lettering color scheme. Since I'm making my own decals, white lettering is out of the question. That kinda limits me to yellow or black lettering and I'm thinking over the color combinations. Well, I'll figure it out. Have a good one, everybody! :wave:

    I'm kind of up the air about what to do?
    I ran trains today already but I don't know if I want to build something or just run trains. Got the majority of the yard work done during the week, that's what's nice about working nights. I'll decide later. Do want to go to the LHS this weekend, plus FleaMarkets are happening, may find some train bargains. I got a load of engines from Trainworld today so I have to break them in, love their blowout sales. Maybe it's time to assess the rolling stock and thin it out a bit of items I bought that don't fit my era anymore, the attics a little warmer now. We'll just have to see!!!

    Run trains!--[​IMG]

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!!--[​IMG]

    The L&N Depot and Museum in Milton, Florida, April 16 from 10-4. Little bit of a trip for an Australian but more reasonable for someone from Olive Branch, Mississippi ;) :thumb:

    :( I have to work both on sat. and sunday, and try to get in some yard work. If time permits and not :sleeping:, continue working how my track ballast will look, making different combinations of black, dark brown, gray,etc, then look and stare and think will look at different parts of my layout.
