Hey Chris, I'll try to get them out soon...
Sorry to hear about the need for knee surgery Chris. Hope you are back on your feet soon.
Thankyou Robin, I hope by the weekend the inflamation will have gone down and I can go to the basement where you know what lives
BTW Robinwill you be at the Lindsey show in April?
I don't know anything about the Lindsey show Chris so probably won't be there
Coming Along Nicely!
That's going to be a super looking yard! I always look forward to your pictures, Chris. Good luck with your knee...(Too much EXTREME cliff skiing as a youngster, I'll bet! )...be sure to rest it properly.
Really great pic's Chris.
Looks like your are to a great start in rebuilding.
Hi Chris , Great pics as always,It doesen,t seem to me that your resting that knee of yours Looks to me that your busy as a bee at the layout,so rest that knee, see ya in the morning with all the guys for breakfast. Catch ya later. Duckman....
FRIDAY AND I GOT TA STAY IN
Well I made Breakfast with the guys Thursday Morning, Knee seemed alright
For a while But after feeling a bit off and aching a bit, Friday night will be ice and elevation night , I am allowed to mix a Brandy with the ice tho .
R&R for a few days more then it`s look out Railway
Robin just in case you were intrested the Lindsey R/W show is 5th & 6th April at the Armoury.
I will try for Saturday morning
Hope the knee gets better soon Chris!
You know what it`s like, you think you are OK for an hour then you know you should have waited a bit longer.
Hi Folks, I am over the first surgery, only to be told I need a partial fusion on left knee inside When I buck up the courage It`s a 5 months waiting list and 3 months recovery
So I have to get a brace for the left knee to give me some time.
Enough of that *&&^^%%$$$
Here are a few pics from the new area.
That stone wall is just polyfiller on a 2b4
This is the new dead end station for the traction.
Birds eye view of my interchange yard, no overhead up yet
Here is the raised yard with the Santa Fe on, and the Interurban is on the track that will be incased in a road soon.
( I must fix that chimney soooooon)
And an overhaul view of the track plan that`s down.
More later when the sparks start to fly
The Leaning Chimney Of Tractionville...
I love that chimney...it's got character. There's a potential mini-scene for you right there...a gaggle of LPPs trying to figure out how to straighten things up. Maybe one hanging from the roof by his safety rope, one doubled up laughing...two fetching a kiddie pool...etc.
Good idea Steve, I might stick a chimney sweeps brush out of the top
Good to se your progress Chris. Sorry to hear there is more to be done on that poor old knee.
Hi Robin, its a bit of a bummer about the knee, I might as well get it done asap
I was thinking about the retracking and I might just string up the over head on the switching yard as well
I think it would be neat to have a box motor built to serve the industry
The wire it gets in ya blood, it looks bare without THE WIRE must take me med now
Will your overhead take trolley poles or just pantographs? Almost all my traction has poles on it.
Be gentle with the knee when you get fixed. One of my relatives had a problem with his surgery and I accused him of trying out fro the Detroit ballet too soon.
