Greetings fellow Rail Junkies, Foamers and Modelers! As I write this, the birds are singing and the promise of warmer days is in the air. After the long winter and somewhat disappointing spring many of us have had, it's

"Where you been Range Rider?"
Yes I'm back, but the view has changed.
Greetings fellow rail junkies! It has been a while since my last entry, but as I warned in the last update, the times, they are a changing. I know my blog headings are usually a song related one but I couldn't think of one today. A recent trip to my DVD collection reminded me of an old episode of the A-Team and
Up first this morning was a trip to Nevada City. Dave Braun recently passed away and his ex West Side/Swayne Lumber caboose is now at the railroad museum. Definately gonna take some work but plans are to restore her to the as built Swayne Lumber condition. Also caught the guys having some fun in the shop building a soapbox derby car.

I really want to kick myself today! lol As mentioned before, I went down to see my daughter this weekend. She lives with my ex in a small Central Valley town near Turlock.

I would have loved to pulled over and taken some great shots of the train from the interstate. Lesson learned!

I haven't been getting much done lately as I've had a change in work hours. I was working at night, getting off work at 8am and coming home and doing some modeling. Now, I'm working during the day, getting off at 8pm. It's been tough making the adjustment. I'd been working at night for so long, I joked with my friends about being a vampire! The one thing I don't like is not having much time after work to do something. I was spoiled being able to leave work and go to do some shopping when stores
