    Good news / bad news on the model railroad front.

    I now have all the materials I need to start the benchwork - lumber, screws, a quad driver for the electric drill, and all the plans are now finalized for the benchwork as well. Even got a quick lesson from my stepfather-in-law on safely operating a circular saw.

    Bad news - didn't get a chance to start cleaning the garage, because I ended up helping SIL all weekend doing renovations to our basement bathroom. And then last night it got cold, and dumped snow (about 6 inches and still counting) - supposed to get up to +8C tomorrow, so maybe later in the week I can start on the garage (and likely I'll take breaks from the cleaning/reorganizing to do little bits of benchwork heh heh).

    Good news and bad news, the good news is you can start soon but don't forget the SNOW PLOUGH in H0 for use later. The bad news is, it will thaw before you get the benchwork up and not need the plough. LOL[​IMG]
