    Afternoon all. Just stopped by to say "howdy". Not much happening in the train room. Still kicking around the idea of changing the layout. The far corner is just to difficult to reach even when on a step stool. Hell to get old. STAY SAFE Later, Hughie

    Well it's another hot one with feels like temps around 105. Think a couple of PB&J would be nice, glass of milk. Reading Greg's and Tom's posts made me think just how great it is to get off the Interstate and take the back roads. It seems like most of the time we are in such a hurry to be...

    Afternoon all. Well it's August in H-town. Humidity just makes miserable to be outdoors. Willie - I love the Bar Mills brand of buildings and their detail packages. Already put a few items on my Christmas list (never too early). I have a spot picked out for the Shipyard Brewery, and Majestic...

    Afternoon all. Well we are suppose to do one of those drive-by parades for our great granddaughter but I'm not sure the weather is going to cooperate. I did get about an hour train time yesterday. It sometimes amazes me how 30 minutes in a make believe world can be so relaxing. The Covid-19...

    Good afternoon all. Well the day started off with thunder and rain. Sun popped up for a little bit but overcast again. It's hard to believe it's August, we've been contending with this virus thing since February and not seeing an end soon. Some great photos guys. STAY SAFE, STAY AWAY and STAY...

    I'd been drinking and they told me to take the trolley home. Turns out I can't drive it either!

    Afternoon all. So something funny (funny odd as opposed to funny humorous) while MU my Broadway limited SD45-2's. CV-29 is what determines direction and is usually set at 38. If you want to change which end is forward you can change CV-29 to 39. So my Delaware & Hudson RS-3 are 4103 & 4108, with...

    Good Afternoon all. I'm thinking maybe a BLT with a vanilla malted. Off and on showers here in H-Town. Thank you for your condolences. Willie - the way I see it is with a laptop I can go anywhere in the house and use it. With that said, I have a desktop, 2 laptops, 2 tablets, 2 old laptops...

    Well good evening all. It seems I lost quite a bit of time here at the diner. Wasn't cause the food was bad mind you, but social distancing and all that stuff. In reality it has been a tough month and a half. Two brother-in-laws passed,both of old age, 89 and 96. My next door neighbor passed...

    Good Afternoon all. I have been as busy as a cat burying poo in a sandbox. Getting my new computer completely set up. I had some difficulty moving my SCARM license from the old computer to the new one. I gotta tell you SCARM worked with me for a couple of days to get everything right, fantastic...

    Good Afternoon all. Well the rain just started, so it will really get muggy in a bit. The new computer showed up and it has taken 2 days to get close to where I was with the old computer. Thanks for the likes on the switcher picture. Not a lot of train time lately. LATER
