    I worked for two days fixing and restaining the woods of the logging camp. Its all repaired and ready to install today. I still have to make another spar tree. The one showing is one of two. Shot below. Also i tried to repair the barn but its too far damaged. I had two options Make it a falling down barn. Or replace it with a new one. I chose the latter. New barn kit is wood and will be here sometime this week or next. I think next as this weekend is a holiday.Shots of the repairs on the logging camp and the damage of the barn. Laters

    More fun, I have all the buildings of the logging camp glued down and the two spar poles and steam donkey in place. After they dry i will be adding stumps for the ropes. Its coming along pretty good. I like this camp better than before.

    Recently I've had similar issues. If you watch in the upper right corner of the page there will appear some flashing red dots. That is when it's processing the post. I believe. You have to wait for them to stop and disappear to be safe to continue.
    Just like on the CNC milling machines I used to operate.

    The wonders of MS Windows 11!
    Wish I could stick with Windows 7 and no DCC!

    I wasn't thinking of the barn kit coming this fast but its here. This is a simple Wood Kit. More advanced kits are out there. For the beginners i thought i would show the kit instructions. This kit only has about 20 or a few more parts. More complicated kits can have over 100 parts or even more depending on the size of the kit. Shots below.

    Just a little work left. First the roofing and then the diagonal and horizontal bracing in those doors. Plus what ever you wish.
    A little paint may be nice.

    LOL. Yeah, so was my Tandy Color Computer II in 1982...

    Win10 on my laptop.

    Raspberry Pi OS runs JMRI and a Pi SPROG 3 hat for my layout/programming track.

    Android on my phone/throttle.

    I finished the little barn. Its weathered. This kit was real easy. For supplys i needed red and black paint Alcohol for thinner. a couple of paint brushes and a cutting knife. Total build time about 6 hours. I think wood is easier than plastic. It seems to look more natural. Shots below, Including it in place on the layout.

    I found out to late that newer Ryzen processors, and m.2, hard drives will not work on windows 7. It won't even load off a disc. I have the windows 7 64 bit premium. Sucks as my computer fried back a few months ago.

    I have been building outhouses. have 8 so far and need a few more yet. They are so small and hurt my hands to build them. Be glad when this is finished.

    I hear that MS is working on a way to bypass all programs that prevent the automatic upgrade. Sorry I don't understand the language used.
    Best wishes hanging on. When they converted my old computer it melted some components. I bought a newer replacement but the dealers insisted it had to have 10 or the wouldn't sell. It's here.

    Good luck with it. I even went and tried replacing the M.2 with the original windows 7 hard drive. Evening running a new copy on it nether would work. I gave it up and i was able to reduce my programs mostly from windows 10 pro 64 bit. Have changed my broswer to Firefox and use google mail and blocked the est of google and the new Edge along with many other programs. Cortara is another one i removed. I did keep the windows defender and there firewall as its pretty much the same as windows 7. Shutting down some of the programs that microsoft put in windows 10 helped. my computer is faster than what it was before. It maybe faster than windows 7 but i wonder how stable it is. Now that windows 11 is out maybe Microsoft will leave windows 10 alone but for security updates. This computer is capable of running windows 11. Maybe in my next computer. I build my computers to my specs. I never buy a computer off the shelf. Most times they are junk or low tech. If i had known the issue with this computer and windows I would have bought a older model and go from there. O Well....

    I knew there would at least one outhouse crack!
    I would have been disappointed if there wasn't!
