Well we are back from another weekend and break from the daily grind. Let's see how we did. Saturday: Friday night, I made the decision to not bring the small table top switching layout but instead bring my portion of the Galesburg City Job. I was hopping at best to bring the two modules that represented the Butler complex but to my surprise, my Little Focus swallowed up all three modules, the legs, support equipment, tool box and the train box. Wow, just as good as my old Cherokee but my gas mileage was 33 MPG. I love this car! With the little car packed, I left early Saturday morning to the show which was roughly an hour north of me in Normal Illinois. The show organizer gave me my own room, so set up was a breeze and was finished in about an hour. The highlight on Saturday was having a gentleman stop by and point to one of the Butler buildings and say that he worked in that building as a college kid one summer. It was great to talk to folks who were familiar with the area. Later that night after the show closed to the general public, we had a club meeting, then Pizza and finally ran trains until about 8:00 before calling it a day. Sunday: I slept in till 6:30 then after getting ready met up with my friends for breakfast before heading into the show. Attendance was down this year, only about 124, so a new venue will not hurt. I still had a great time and got to run trains. It was a little odd running without my co-modeler Bill but many of the folks I talked to this past weekend are now making plans to see the both of us and the complete layout at this years Galesburg RR Days in June. Before we knew it, it was time to take everything down and yes, that clock on the wall really bothered my OCD. Soon my car was packed and I was headed home. So how about you? What did you accomplish this past weekend? Shows? Trees? Painting? Let us know! We'll assemble again on Friday the 16th to start the process all over again. Until then, have a great week, stay safe and as always... High Greens!
