Welcome back everyone to the gateway to the weekend. I'm sorry to read of the many struggles of injuries, health battles and even the loss of loved ones. May we be grateful for what we have and keep a positive outlook for a better tomorrow. Fortunately, we have the best pastime in the world to occupy our time and with that let's see what we have planned. Saturday: Not too much planned. I have on the work bench a project that has been put off for far too long. A fully detailed and painted N scale GP30. I painted this same locomotive up for someone back in 2017 and the post office was kind enough to almost completely destroy the model. Parts had to be replaced, a complete re-paint and decal then life got busy. My New Year's resolution is to finish projects like this before starting new ones. I'm hoping to make some headway on this model as I'm now about 75% way done. I'll also finish the large task of restoring the track on the City Job for future operations sessions with my co-workers at Athearn. Years of storage took its toll on the track, but I now have two out of the three modules working great again. I hope to finish the third module and start building switch lists again in prep for a late January - early February Op session. Sunday: We are going to visit Angela's dad and grandma before they leave next week for Florida. Our Aunt lives down there so they will visit until March. We'll spend some quality time with them before they disembark for their trip and will generally relax. Any time left over will be spent just enjoying each other's company, no real plans. So how about you? What do you have planned for the weekend? Let us know. We'll come back on Monday the 17th to check in and see our results. I want everyone here to please be safe, take extra precautions and more importantly, take time for our friends and loved ones. This year has already been hard for many of us, let's keep the faith. Until Monday my friends, have a great weekend, do some great modeling, be safe, be healthy and as always... High Greens!
