    EDIT - OK, it's actually the 18th, but I cannot get the title in the forum listing to change, even though I have changed "Title" in the edit screen...

    First time I've been able to say I've gotten anything done in a long time.:rolleyes:

    Finished up the road crossing, had to touch up the gravel shoulders and re-glue the crossing. I have the RR Xing signs almost ready to be printed and added to the scene.

    The City Station is almost complete. I was able to continue the roofs and minor details. I also printed on cardstock various details, such as 'Black River', the ATSF logo, ATSF advertising posters, and a route map to be added onto the station. I also have the manilla folder window shades done for the baggage room.

    I'll post pictures when I make a bit more progress, I promise.

    Made about ~30 of my 85 switch control panel moduals... Lots of soldering, but sort of relaxing. Only burnt my thumb once.

    We went to a birthday party for our young friend Brady. As you can see, Brady's mom and dad are "training" him right.

    Let's put it this way, I had the metal ladder propped up through an access hole in the ceiling. Around one o'clock, the top two rungs that were in the attic were too hot to touch.:eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Anoucement:the grange has a new addition to its roster. F/U28.

    we took a minitrix mech, and an Bachman F7, and a minitrix U28 body shell and combined the nose from the F7, and the U28 body shell, cut behind the cab.

    In a yard accedent, a U28`s cab was compleatly destroyed, and as the Grange`s work shop had a cab from an old F7,(just laying around), and the company was short a few loco`s they orderd the workshop manager to redesign the F7 to fit on the chasis of the U28, and do it yesterday....

    One weekend later the workshop manager rolled out HIS F/U28....Here is the result....
    have a good one..steve

    I spent all of saturday at my In'law's garage sale, dodging raindrops. I did however find shelter on their front steps and managed to paint and assemble two DPM buildings. my town now has the Bottoms-up bar and grill and harlee and son's motorcycle shop, courtesy of DPM's gold kits. Now I've got to start painting all those metal castings that come with those kits.
    Sunday I worked on detailing an old mantua Pacific that my boss gave me to fix-up for him. he originaly just wanted a new paint job and decaling but I've added a few things like sanding lines, wire hand grabs and a scratchbuilt feedwater tank (not the prettiest scatch but it works) Tonight (Tuesday) I painted the boiler, cab, pilot and tender shell in their basic flat black. Pictures will come when the project is completed
