    This stinks.

    Im soooo close to finishing my track. Im only a couple pieces of flex track and one switch away from finishing the track on my first layout piece. I have my brand new 2-10-2 IHC steamer, and a power pack coming tommorow.

    Well, what sucks is this. Im working all weekend. And I mean 24/7, since im on call at nights. Im an apprentice funeral director so I live here at the funeral home, and I am on call at night. Im on till wednesday night, and I cant leave the building! sooo close to seeing that loco move around the track for the first time and all thats holding me back is a trip to the hobby store!

    Im sure my girlfriend thinks its funny, seeing me squirm with anticipation. I would simply send her to the hobby store for me, (or beg her) but I need to cash my paycheck first and they are not open on the holliday. Grrrrrrrr.

    Oh well, hopefully by friday.

    Sorry to complain, but im sure you folks understand.

    I know what you mean. I’ve been waiting for my new Baldwin switcher the last two weeks and when it was delivered I was not at home to receive the parcel :cry: and I had to wait the whole weekend to get it. It was a looooong weekend.

    just think off the relief, when you see the little engine run forthe first time on your new layout, a feeling you wont soon forget... hope you dont go to crazy, in the meen time...
