    Good Morning Everyone......sunny and warm here in Wisconsin. Hopefully we'll get some rain. I was very ill Thursday evening and my wife was concerned that I could have the Corvid-19 since I had many of the signs of the virus. No sleep at all on Thursday night but Friday I slept most of all...

    Good Afternoon Everyone.....spent too much time out in the sun and now I'm exhausted. The Mrs. went to the landfill by herself. Should be working on my layout's track plan, but I'll find time next week to do that project. You should have our Governor who I believe came from Gov. Nuisance's...

    Boris: I subscribed to TrainMastersTV for six months to watch the videos and "How To" sessions. Under $10 and its a good deal. I'm thinking about cancelling my MRVido Plus since its getting stale during the COVID - 19 period. I like the free MRH online magazine that's related to...

    Bar Mills Tylick Tool - Time for the Insanity

    I'm enjoying watching the progress on your Tylick Tool structure and like how it's shaping up. Watching your progress reminds me that I have a Bar Mills kit that I purchased several years ago and even without a spot on the layout for the kit, I should build it anyway. Keep up the good progress...

    Industrial backdrops?

    I like the weathered look of the buildings and they would be great for backgrounds when photo shooting models. May have to consider them for my expansion. Greg

    Another Ebay mystery

    I remember Mellow Mike and he purchased some NIB rolling stock from a friend of mine. Mellow's work was very good at weathering, but not at those prices and he seemed to sell everything he worked on. I remember him copying the weathering on 1:1 rolling stock and then reproducing it on an HO...

    A couple of UP Box Cars

    Same trick works for a building or a vehicle's reflection in a mirror installed on a layout. Ala John Allen and his G&D layout. Greg

    Good Morning Everyone....another hot and tropical day here in Wisconsin. Deciding when I should go out and water some new grass seed where we had the ash tree removed. The seed is growing nice and I don't want to lose it. The neighbor also had a tree removed and we water his seed and ours...

    Love For the Hobby

    Well said Espeefan. The model railroad club Espeefan refers to is pure perfection and scale modeling at its best with the "Love of the Hobby" that shows the minute you walk down the stairwell into the club's layout room. Greg
