    Hi Dan, I'm glad I found you here at trainboard. I see that you have moved into a house and have a train room. That is very good news. I look forward to following your progress on your layout. I have a layout thread in the O scale forum.

    I have been busy on the trestle over the span above the new section of the layout. Its about 10 or so inches long. I still have two more bents to build. I rebuilt the trestle over the falls area and i have about half of the other trestle in that switchback area of the falls done. Have shots and one of the trestle i used as a guide. I should have the trestle ready to put on my desk and then finish the reinforcement of the trestle and stain. I will also need to finish the plaster before i can place the bridge back into place. Lots of things going on. Some i don't have pictures yet, but will get them up soon. Smoke

    I am on the east coast of Florida, far away from the hurricane. It was just a normal day today.

    It's good to see you still working on the layout. You are doing a very nice job.

    I ran out of air so to the store i go... I shot a couple of shots with the stain on the one side. Also i was able to finish the plaster but for a couple of places. Looks so much better now. Later, Smoke

    I took a break from the trestles and worked on the houses. I think that the rains and humidity in the home have warped the houses. Not to sure what i am going to do yet. I might have to take them apart and add more stiffeners to them.I ran out of windows and had three doors left out of the two packages i had Micron art brand. Found one but need around 3 of them to finish the windows. There made of brass. Have a couple of shots below. Smoke
