    What a nice weekend we had. Lots of sunshine and great temperatures were the norm for both days. My daughter’s softball team lost. Right now it is tough for the girls because many of them are adjusting from the pitching machine to live pitch. Also many of the pitchers have never pitched before so there a lot of walks. My son’s team, however, won their game. My son had the game winning RBI! We also did some gardening around the house.

    The last piece of the RLK&T came down over the weekend. I finally took the mountain and water fall down. The kids and I then set down some foam over the plywood and the RK&M took shape. Right now it is just a fancy oval, but trains are running over the tracks including the Water Tower Diorama and Passenger Station Diorama. I finished painting the ground on the highway portion of the Passenger Station Diorama. I also started to make waves in the stream with Woodland Scenics Water Effects.

    Here's a couple of quick pictures of the "new" RK&M:

    I started work on the n scale roller coaster that I am building. I did not get that much of it done over the weekend. Here are pictures of it so far.

    On Friday I insured the summer car (87 Iroc-z camaro) On saturday I washed it and then did a little model work.
    I finally finished the warehouse, adding the wall caps and roof details. I then started to re-paint a boxcar for my modelRR club. It's our city's centenial so we dicided to make a centenial boxcar to put on the layout. Now I need decals for the thing. I cast some retaining walls and a tunnel portal using a mold that I got a little while ago.
    On Sunday I drove to Vernon and back to blow the car clean of everything that it collects when it sits for 6 months.

    The coaster is just a display. I have plans on building a hole amusement park I just started with the coaster thought it would be the hardest to build.

    Not much in the model railroading department, my daughter had a dance competition this weekend out of town, and she got 5 silver metals, not bad for her first year in competitive dancing.

    Looks Good Tom & trains1972. My weekend was a busy one. Saturday i spent down at the fire hall selling subs. Sunday well it got even more busy after 4:30. Had a brush fire involving 4 acres. Didn't get home till after 8:30 that night. I really wanted to work on my trains but this past weekend was just busy. Sounds like everyone else had a nice weekend.

    :wave: Have A Safe & Wonderful Week Everyone :wave:

    Me modle, this past week end, no way, I started with two (2) kids for a week, by thursday the number climbed to four (4) they sure can run an old man rugged, but I would not change a thing I may be worn out, but I had a ball so I think did the kids.

    I started out with no plans on Friday except running trains, which I did. Liked the Atlas U23B so much ordered another today. After the trip to the LHS Sat., of course I couldn't leave there without some cars. I ended up building 2 cars between Sat., night and Sun. A quickie Bowser flat and a P2K Mather stock car. Then ran trains some more. I also picked up some Model Power NYC trailers w/ tractors, unfortuneatly they are modern tractors and it was a bit pricey just for 2 trailers, the cabs are nice just too modern for the 60' / 70's, luckily I had a 20% off coupon I used on them.

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