    This weekend is a big question mark. My daughter and son have softball and baseball games on Saturday. My son also has a game on Sunday. He will also be doing a football camp Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. And I have to do my Little League snack stand duty on Sunday afternoon. We are hoping that the weather holds out. My daughter’s team has had their last three games rained out and my son has one rained out.

    I am waiting for seven coal loads that I made this week to dry. If they do I will do some final finishing on them and perhaps begin the next nine I need to make. On the layout I need to start carving the mortar lines for the stream wall and begin shaping the wing wall for the bridges. I also have my new P2K PRR PA1 and PB1 to test. I am not sure what other project I could get involved in. There are so many potential ones sitting on the workbench to choose from.

    Well I plan on finishing up my Cottage scene seen here,

    I will be adding some more folige and vines to the area. I should have pictures by Monday. I got the foundation done yesterday and the decking. I also will be painting the foundation & decking to the desired color.

    Well my weekend started Wednesday afternoon (thanks Doc Hulst) so I've got a fair amount of time to do some stuff.

    At the present time I am working on some HO stuff for my built sometime in the future HO switching layout.It will be replacing my old N scale switching layout and allow me to use most of the HO stuff I still have after being in N scale for over 12 years.:D

    Saturday night I will be thrashin' on the 2TRAK layout.Putting down more track and adding just abit more scenery to it.

    Taking a group for the day of the local high school rodeo kids to the big rodeo near here, leaves the evenings free, calling for rain for the weekend so looks like I may get down to the layout for a change, have one switch to build and some ties and track to lay where the cattle pens are going. If I have time will put up the log loading table in the corner and put down the track diagram and maybe the ties..have a good weekend everyone..Ron..

    Ralph's for fun!

    I can't believe I let myself get talked into having a garage sale but that's what I'll be doing Saturday. Hopefully we can unload a lot of stuff that's been lying around and make a few bucks inn the process. I 'll be happy if we recoup the cost of the ad in the paper! :)

    Sunday I hope to take some pictures of the layout and maybe do some freight car weathering with the cheapie acrylic paints I recently bought after being inspired by a couple of recent threads.

    This weekend I'm working on a couple DPm city buildings that I've been meaning to build for awhile now. Most of the painting is done, now It's assembly and possible interior building.
    My RS-3 is on hold now until I get some more decals, but I am considering some work on my IHC hudson, removing the elephant eat some deflectors and some other things. I also have a P2K mill gon to decal, and possibly wire in my turntable selector switch so I can use the motorizing kit on it (finally)

    I need to get a MO in the mail for some HO I got on ebay and to lay down some boxed up track to break in a new steamer. A C&O Heavey Mountain 2 8 2 Bachman Spectrom.

    I also have a coaling staion I can start on toning.

    I have made 3 and sold two on ebay in O gauge.

    This is in HO and I am wondering how it will be.

    N Gayugw speaking of flea markets, I went to one yesterday and bought a sword/cane.

    I feel the need for it where I am having a class here in the worst part of town noted for drive bys, hookers and drug murders, not to mention muggings.
