    Running Bear's July 2020 Coffee Shop

    My stepson passed on May 15 and it's been nothing but banks, courts, and lawyers since. I just started fixing everything at our house and all of a sudden we have another house that needs the same. We sold it this week and I'm so happy it's gone. At 74 I didn't need a second house to take care...

    Another crossing gate idea

    Overlaid KB. I was getting my oil changed in Rockland county NY near the CXS line. I took a video of the passing train and doubted the sound on my own video. It worked out perfectly. George

    Another crossing gate idea

    I posted this sometime last year. I got tired of twisting my body under the layout installing crossing gates so I came up with this idea. Build everything as a separate unit then install it. It just makes the job so much easier. How they look working.

    Received an email from our doctor's group yesterday saying we are open if anyone needs to make an appointment. I guess no one going? George

    MASSIVE YARD, Hump yard, and engine facilities

    How many people work there? I say this because on a visit to the abandon NH Maybrook yard a few years back I took a photo of a sign that said 1,100 people use to work here. I have the photo some where. So more than 1,100 people work at the yard in the video? George

    Running Bear's April 2020 Coffee Shop

    I'm not so sure about the 2018 stuff. My wife and I canceled a 2018 bank account because it had been compromised. So in that case they wouldn't be able to deposit money in a canceled account this year. I'm wondering what would happen in that case? $2,400.00 floating around in cyber space...

    I'm not sure how's that work's for the stimulus money package. I mean everyone who filed early got their stimulus checks deposited in their checking accounts today. If your just now filing you may not get the stimulus money until September? George

    I doubt I could handle that job. To much stress. I bough around 10 model trucks 15 year ago. I think I paid $5.95 per truck now their $22.00 or more. George
