    Late today with getting this started. That is what happen when you take the day off from work.

    I had a good modeling weekend. I finished the Lehigh and New England U23B and I weathered an Athearn Penn Central U33C. I also began working on the underside of the trolley bridge for the Passenger Station Diorama.

    Harold, Lookin' real good!

    I started my first attempt at painting the brickwork on a WS Rocky's Tavern. I say first attempt because it looks like $0@*?% and I'm sure it will take several more attempts to get something even passable.

    I didn't get all my rewiring done, but I did complete the yard and the mainline and ran a train.

    I spent the weekend working on scratch building a round house. This is the first building that I tried to build without a kit.

    The hobbyshop did not have the right size styrene for the roof and the windows.

    Didn't get as much done as I had hoped, but I did do something. Worked on the Tichy gon, completed it all but the piping, I'll leave that for another time just didn't feel like bending wire, it is in service though and looks great. I leave the instructions a little bit to be desired but that's what kits are for, learn, next seven will be done different. Passed on the P2K box car as the roadname I have needs the sidesill modified, even though they have it marked I just didn't fell like slicing and dicing. Started the Athearn 4 bay to 3 bay bash of the covered hopper, glued the weight to the floor as this will keep the floor length while I hack the bays out, also gluing a piece of brass angle to the weight side snug against the bays so I have something to glue the bay back onto and keep it level. That's all

    I did run trains some, mainly Sunday morn!!

    Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend!!-[​IMG]

    I put the loading dock on my DPM warehouse and assembled the walls for the Harlee and son cycle shop so I could posision it on the layout and get and idea of the space I have to work with. Yesterday afternoon I measured out the road/parkinglot/any other ashpalted area and cut out the 1/8" road board for it. Now it's just waiting for some color.

    Ed , sounds like you should have stayed in bed.
    I really like the scenery you have there Harold, Nicely done.
    I did get some ballasting done on the Georgetown sub but still have about 40% still to do.

    I rebuilt a pair of Lionel #242 "Scout" locos I picked up at the last show for $5 for the pair.
    I also made a little more progress on the turntable project.
