Good morning folks No rain yesterday so we will have to see what is store for us today and the weekend. I had an unscheduled day off from work yesterday. A major water main broke near the office and the building was without water service so the township would allow them to open the building. My son had another disappointing football practice last night. He had to got to another team’s field to have his id photo taken. The head coach took him and several other boys and it took about an hour and a half. As result he was only able to practice for about twenty minutes. No modeling yesterday. Even with the day off I wound up doing a bunch of little chores around the house. Are you a modeler who runs trains or an operations person who builds models? Right now I am mainly a modeler. I am building structures and equipment mostly. I am also constructing scenery on the layout. The layout is currently serving as a place to run and display my models. My current layout does not have any staging. At some point I plan on adding staging but there is a lot to do on the pink desert before I get to that point. I have looked over some stuff about operations but I find that I am enjoying building more at this time. Who knows when the layout is closer to being done I may change.
