    Hopefully, the railroad, itself, stood up. Big trains outside are still cool.

    Have a few joints that need to be reassembled, and a number
    of washouts that need to be filled and leveled. But, I am able to
    run trains on the loop in front. Hope to have a couple of short
    trains set up in a couple of weeks, for railroad club open house.
    Will have a second throttle available, if someone would like to run a train!
    Anyone close is welcome to stop by, between 10AM and 4 PM, both
    Saturday and Sunday, July 20/21.

    Got an RS-3 recently! Rio Grande. Said it was in great condition, except he didn’t say
    that handrail stanchions were broken/missing, missing horn. Radiator louvers on left
    side messed up! Can redo the louvers. Found a source for 3D printed replacement parts!
    Ordered what I needed. Recieved today. Discovered that part sent, are NOT the ones I ordered!
    Ended up with 6 parts for a C-16.

    Took quick photo, of parts, with my invoice, showing what happened.
    Hope to hear something in next day or so.

    Still gotta find an Airwire Radio Control board and sound card for it, so I can use it!

    Ran the DRGW GP30’s for about 3 hours today!
    Warm, dry day! So, I decided to try and take advantage of it!
    With about a week and a half to go, for layout tour, I gotta get
    at least 1 section of track reassembled! Have friend willing to help!

    Heard from RS-3 parts guy. Sending new parts, said to keep what I recieved.
    Not a bad day overall.

    Onlay one I have, at the moment!
    Newly purchased Burlington GP30’s and coal train.
    Before I was able to locate an almost impossible to
    find pair of Rio Grande GP30’s!!

    Only other one, on this computer!
    Coal train, now with newly acquired Rio Grande GP30.
    Several months later, I actually found the other Rio Grande
    GP30 on eBay!! Minor work needed.

    Yeah, those look great. Funny how I like GP30's too when they are supposedly the ugliest diesels EMD ever made. I have many of them in N scale, including some Burlingtons.

    Friend from railroad club stopped by today.
    Offered to help me get a separated insulated track joint
    back together. Ended up doing a lot more than I expected, or was planning!
    Felt helpless, since I wasn’t able to do anything!
    Gave a 3 car set of MT DRGW Cookie Cars, in exchange. Feel like I still owe
    about another $20 for the work he did for me!
    Can run a train to back again, and return! Justin time for club open house next weekend!
