    Nice work, Tom!

    Yeah, those things alway seem to happen around midnight. Seeing something like that in the mirror will sure wake you up, though!

    We have a scrap place around the way who usually loads 52'-5" cars to the brim and they're heavy. Sometimes a 65' car sneaks in and it's ridiculous. There's no spring travel left. I'm not sure how they don't get bad ordered. Very many of those trips and they'll end up looking like your NS car!

    added a compound air pump to a 0-4-0 and a second air pump to my articulated.

    A old junk Bachmann N&W J gave up it pumps for its brothren

    I built most of this kit this week. I upgraded it to Kadee couplers and steel wheels. One side looks good. The other I managed to put a big fat fingerprint on, and then removed most of it. Eventually, weathering may hide my booboo.[​IMG][​IMG]

    We've all done it at one time or another.

    Not exactly what's *on* my workbench but what is now *next to* my workbench. I bought this two-sided, rotating pegboard from our local JCPenney that is closing. I originally thought that it would be used as a part of our church Welcome Center, but now that it's here, I kind of like it.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Well, I have a workbench. Built it a couple weeks ago, right now it has dozens of unbuilt kits, parts and tools on it after I unpacked two boxes. [​IMG]

    Sweet. Are you going to run this as an auxiliary canteen behind your modernized 4-8-0?

    Great modeling guys, I try to keep up, but sometimes its more coyotes than this chicken can take care of.
    Pastor John, I have not only left finger prints, but some DNA on my projects LOL, a little weathering and it will be fine. I like that rotary peg board too.
    Thanks Ryan!
    Railmix, you have some unique modeling and ideas on your MRR, I enjoy seeing your progress.
    RGW1, That is a very nice looking Aux water car, a neat idea, and concept.
    RGW Mike, I just dream about having the time, resources and people, you do for a large project like yours. Great job.
    GP30, I have followed you MRR projects as I can, very impressive skills.
    I actually got some modeling in today but no images tonight, maybe tamale (as my friend says).
