    Welcome back everyone. Sorry this is a bit late, lets get started!

    Saturday: Sell some more cars.

    Sunday: The paint came in this past week so I hope to work more on my B&M CTC panel.

    So how about you? Let us know. We'll come back on Monday the 10th to see how we all did. Until then, have a fun weekend, be safe and as always...

    High Greens!

    I'm planning on doing some work on my T-Trak Z module. I got the skyboard in with RGB lights between the skybpoard and mountain backdrop. After I finish the electrical stuff underneath, I can install the turntable, and lay some track. 03.jpg
    I still need to install the 12V accessory terminal strip, and feeder wires for track power underneath:

    Have to travel to Chattanooga tomorrow. Sunday I hope to get some train room time. Not feeling super motivated this weekend so may just run some trains and if the mood hits, I'll work on something.

    Hope you all have a great weekend!

    Still sick, not getting as much done. Yesterday I got nothing done as solely all day. This weekend I hope to build more structures and paint the modules.

    Still working on the Menomenee Falls depot kit.

    Tried scraping the pattern of squares off the platform with a wood chisel- an agonizingly slow and unsatisfactory process, :mad: so this weekend I'm going to take a block of wood and build a milling fixture for it. Sometimes brutality will get you everywhere. Aside from that, I'll hopefully also be spending more time on the CAD project.

    Hopefully:

    Saturday:
    Get some black paint on my friends DL&W E8's
    Do some more work on my GP and SD9's

    Sunday:
    Start decaling the E8's -- if all goes well with the painting.
    Then -- who knows - LOL

    Y'all have a great weekend!!

    Planning on buying one of the eight foot folding banquet tables, soon. To use for a module setup. So am trying to shrink a pile of railroad paper and railroadiana boxes to make space. Did I say pile? I meant a mountain... :eek::rolleyes:

    Right now I'm working on one of three bridges needed for the Arkansas River Bridge project on the N scale Frisco Boston Mountains Sub Division layout. This bridge is a Walthers arched steel truss kit.

    Not much Z-scale recognizers left, or would you have picked it up immediately?

    Best,
