    I spent a lot more time away from the house then we planned. Friday night we attended a Wilmington Blue Rocks game that my kids’ had earned tickets for by completing a reading challenge in school. Saturday was my son’s birthday party. Sunday he had a baseball game and we hit the malls for a while. We did get to Home Depot and pick up a few things.

    The only modeling that I got to was for the garden railroad. We bought some rock at Home depot and I used it to fill in a depression where we have had trouble with the trains staying on the track. Nothing happen in the HO world.

    I managed to fix the steering column in the car, it took a couple hours to tear it all down, tighten 2 bolts and rebuild it. Hopefully the loc-tite that I used will hold so I won't have to do that again.
    On the modeling front I painted the club's SW1200rs, now it's just waiting for the paint to cure enough for the decals to be added. I also did some work on a few club member's engines. He gave me two IHC steam engines. with the first (a 4-8-2)I shortened the vanerbuilt tender and added a bell. The other (4-6-4) required a complete re-paint as well as a shortened tender. The tenders an these two engines are almost as long as the engines and don't look very good, so shortening them is fairly simple and easy.
    Unfortunetly the only work I did for myself was to paint a set of handrails for my RS-3 while I was painting the SW unit.

    I added PC logos and accurate numbers to a large crane that I'm modeling to replicate a photo of the prototype.

    ezdays Out AZ way

    Got nothing done train-wise. Didn't even get stopped once at the crossing near our house. :cry: I'm probably one of the few waiting for the gates to go up that really doesn't mind. :wave:

    I did get a honeydo finished, built some shelves for my wife's den, and started on a himdo, reworking my poker table. Seems like we wore out the felt cloth already.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    tad late. I spent the weekend at the GBTS. Saw one of Interurban's friends (soryy if I can't remember who) but no other members. I finished (mostly) a building I started at the Xmas show, then resumed work on an engine shed. I had a small display with a couple of my buildings (see April contest) and one of Robin's. Also had a mechanical interlocking panel. Bought a pile of books and 4 coaches.
    Monday we went up to open the trailer and spend a couple of nights. Was in good ahpe, but full of Ladybugs. Also found out when blackfly season is.
