    Good Morning Hoggers,

    The goodies are on the table. The brown stuff is hot and the juice is cold.

    Hoyle, welcome to the Gauge. :cool: :cool: Just use one of the green mugs until you can bring in your own. Just leave it on the floor there in the kitchen and Sherry will "wash" it for you. :D :D

    EVERYONE in behalf of David and Debbie, thank you for the prayers.

    TomPM, thank you so much :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :p :D for the candy.

    60103 if no ones a sitten' in it its unoccupied. One more thing, this here place is strictly SELFSERVE. But just this once I'll get you a doughnut. Did you want one that started out unglazed or one that is just unglazed now? Does it matter? :confused: ;) :p :( :D :rolleyes:

    Brian, condolences on the EBay thing. :( :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :eek: :eek: :p :D

    Lay track and run your trains.

    Good Morning Nelson,Good Morning all.

    'Tis a cold 27 degrees here in the land of Buckeyes.

    Shamus, I have not had tea and toast in along time and that does sound good. I believe I will fix me a cup of tea and make some toast. My late wife use to tease me about being part English as I use to have tea and toast alot for breakfast..

    Now for a fast cup of coffee and then I shall make some tea and toast.Then off to work again this Saturday at the warehouse.

    Have a nice day all! :D

    Good morning everyone,

    Larry, it's pretty chilly on this side of the state, too, although I'm mighty glad to look out and still see grass in stead of that dreaded snow.

    I think I'll just have one of those unlicked chocolate donuts and a cuppa this morning, then I'll spend a little while with the CAD program finishing up the design for the TV/components cabinet I need to build. Then I'll spend most of the rest of the day trying to whip the garage/workshop into shape so I can begin building said cabinet. There's a real incentive to get this done, since once the cabinet is finished I can begin building benchwork for the layout. I need the cabinet because the TV is going to live beneath the layout, and the cabinet I am using now is too tall for that.

    So, it will be a busy day at the Hopeful household, but I hope the rest of you folks will find time to play with your trains.

    Hoyle, it's good to see you, and we hope we'll see you here often from now on. Just a thought - it might be smarter to just hang your dirty mug on one of the pegs on the wall than to have it "washed" here. It isn't the germs that would bother me, as much as the way the essence of dogfood would affect the taste of the coffee or tea!

    Have a great day, y'all.

    Afternoon all.
    Wet and miserable over here, just right for modeling.
    This EBay thing aint too bad though, I picked up a couple of Burlington GP7's although I gave the Prot 2000 Rio Grande PA/PB a miss - it went for $203!!! :mad:

    Anway, I'll just help myself to a donut and get back to some painting and extra detailing o the railroad.

    All the best.
  7. Good morning, everyone.

    Yesterday was the first sunny day we've had here in 10 days. This morning we're back into thick gray clouds with rain forecast again :mad: :mad: You can sure tell it's November in Missouri :( Oh well, it makes good "fireplace weather." ;) :p

    I didn't work on any models last night. I did spend a little time browsing through Robert Schleicher's new book N Scale Railroading. I've never worked in N before, but I'm thinking of trying my hand at a module. I just wonder if my eyes are up to it....:confused: :eek: :eek: :rolleyes: :D

    Have a good day, everyone.

    Good morning folks,

    I have time for a nice relaxing cup of coffee and an unlicked donut this morning.:) Cold here in the Delaware Valley this morning and the weather misforcaster just said it will be cold all week.

    Did a little airbrushing and painted the base for the Northern Light and Power kit. Since we have not decided what we are doing today I have no clue what I will get done.

    Hey Brain, sounds like you are getting that dreaded Ebay addiction disease. Just stay away from that $100.00 Tyco caboose that Tom Fassett has been bidding on.:D :p :) ;) :D Of course look who’s talking. I just dropped 64.00 on two Chessie SD-7s and another 80.00 on a bunch of covered hopper kits.:eek: :D

    Welcome to hoyle and I hope everybody has a good day.

    Good morning everyone. You're correct it is Saturday, but I am at the office. Will be heading to London, Brussels and the Hague this week on business--unfortunately that leaves no time for railroading or posting on the Gauge. Have a great week everyone!

    Hi All,

    It is good to be home. We spent the last couple of days up in Tom's neck of the woods near Lancaster and Harrisburg. (family funeral). It was COLD. It really hasn't warmed up much here in Virginia either. Maybe a cup of tea this afternoon and then a nap. Have to unload the RV tonight.

    Take care & have fun.:) :)

    Hi Nelson,:D
    Hey gang,
    Spent the last few days doing 1:1 scale scenery work around the house (passed out once in the heat - now the wife feels all guilty). I'm still living for the day I get my train room back...maybe soon.
    Nelson, suppose Havoc & fifi returned safely? And what of their 'special shipment'?
