    Since I am unable to access Gauge at work for the time being I need to get his going early.

    If the weather mis-forecasters don’t get it right with the rain we are supposed to have Little League photos and Opening Day Games on both Saturday and Sunday. We also have the bi-weekly shopping torture to attend to. My son’s eighth birthday is today so we will have cake and presents after dinner tonight.

    As far as modeling goes I have nine Atlas two-bay hoppers sitting on the work bench waiting to be weathered. I also have a stream area on the layout that needs work. Then there are the rails and ties that need weathering.

    The next step on the layout is a flustrating one, been at it for a day already, have a short in three of my switches and for the life of me I can not find it, started today trying to isolate the rails but no luck, starting to butcher the switch and looks like crap, looks like I will have to rebuild some of them, used my volt-amp meter and the power goes everywhere no matte which way I throw the switch.... not looking forward to this task... hope you have a more enjoyable time that I am anticipating....Ron..

    I've got two club engines to paint and decal, and two of my own. I hope to finish decaling the CNR GP-7 over the weekend and if the weather is good I'll paint the green on the SDW1200 and my new (to me) RS-3. I'm continuing with the assembly of my narrow guage steamer , hoping that I my get it running before the end of the weekend. I also have a couple other cars to decal, a P2K mill gon to re-letter and assmeble and a few other projects that I could work on.
