We are back and so is the heat here in East Central Illinois. Don't worry though, there is plenty of iced tea of both varieties along with donuts here at the station. Settle in and be prepared to tell us what you got done this past weekend. Saturday: Well effective August 1st, my job here went back to part time status, the RC hobby is in dire straits, so I now have Friday's off again. I spent the day masking and painting the DRG&W GP30 I had originally done two years ago and the U.S. Post office was nice enough to destroy it for my customer. Over the last year, I have slowly repaired, re-detailed and now re-painted the poor GP30. Decals started at the end of the day and I hope to have it completed next week. When Saturday came, I had a brand new soft top and some other parts for Jess my Jeep. I was actually thankful for the heat as anyone who has had to put a top on will tell you, there is a lot of stretching that first time. The rest of my time was spent on cleaning up and out the garage, washing Angela's car and enjoying some good BBQ in downtown Champaign in the old Illinois Central RR Station. Eating ribs while watching both Passenger and freight is not a bad thing at all! Sunday: I drew up plans for my transport box for the B&M modules. Currently, the layout uses two "triple wide" (36.5 X 14-inch) and one double wide (24.5 X 14-inch) T-Trak modules to form a small, rural switching layout set in New Hampshire. The box will hold all three modules, the NCE controller and power plus a box for the local switcher, buggy (Caboose), and freight cars. I was able to frame this box up with some available 1/4-inch plywood and was able to get a majority of it done. Hopefully I can have it somewhat finished and ready to transport modules by next weekend. So how about you? How did you do? Let us know what you did, where you went and what you got or got done. We'll assemble once again on Friday the 10th to start the process all over again. Until then, have a great week, stay safe and as always... High Greens!
