Good morning, good evening, wherever you may be. It's time to gather around and meet at the station of creativity. Pull up a chair, grab your drink of choice and be prepared to share with us what you want to accomplish this weekend. Saturday: Not much as far as railroading today. My step son, Jared, is coming home so my future Father-in-law and I can install front struts, rotors and brakes on his car. Should be a good three generations of male bonding going on. I do however, cross a few still functional and abandoned ROW on the way to my future Father-in-law's house. Maybe this will give me the excuse to finally do a bit of research on those lines. We'll see. Sunday: With less then a week away before heading down to the Saint Louis RPM, I'm getting the last minute items finished for the City Job. Over the week, I had some more valuable information come to me from a former Santa Fe employee who ran the line. His insight was very valuable. I'm hopping to change the switch list to reflect the information I have gathered the past week. I'm hopping to add a bit more scenery to the modules as well. If time allows, I'll be working on the B&M switching layout as well. So how about you? What do you have planned this hot weekend of July? Let us know. We'll assemble again on Monday the 22nd to see how we all did. Until then, have a great weekend, drink plenty of water while staying cool and remember... "Houston, Tranquility base here. The Eagle has landed." ~ Neil Armstrong, 20 July 1969. High Greens!
