I may add one more shelf up on top somewhere. Anyways I took some pictures of some of my rolling stock....some weathered some not. Again I can't figure out how to rotate the pics after inserting. It shows correctly on my pc but I guess the insertion flips it on however you take the picture on phone.

EDIT: After a little work I was able to figure out what happened. Pics should be normal now. Thank Sherrel for taking a shot at it.

Pulled out some of my old structures that will get repurposed. Some of you may be familiar with these designs lol. The warehouse will be the Timken warehouse on the layout, The diesel shop well that will get hacked and revived to be a little bit different for my loco shop. I have to build a few other structures that I purchased a long time ago as well. I ordered my fuel tanks and propane tanks for JR Fuels Co.. Still looking for the right conveyor system for Big Stones Aggregate Co.

While I was running my train around the track with my new to me Centerline track cleaner. I decided to open up another box of stuff that I had't seen 15 plus years. Xmas time lol. Lo behold did I forget what I had.

I found some more of my Norscot CAT equipment that I will create loads with and scenery with.

*NOTE: Any of you "N scale" guys I have 4 CAT equipment that I will be posting for sale. Let me know if you are interested. Look under WTB or Sell section. https://modelrailroadforums.com/forum/index.php?threads/n-scale-cat-equipment-by-norscot.32387/

I've been taking a small pause on the layout. I am trying to finish up some other projects in the house. I did however manage to grab another box car off evil bay. Bev-Bel Athearn 617, 50' Rail Box Car, Atlanta & St. Andrews #ASAB7085 with KD couplers etc. I don't know, I still like Athearn BB not all of them but some of them particularly special run series. Bev-Bel, Red Robin, and so on. (some where we had a list on this forum of all the custom Athearn companies...cant seem to find it right now)

Well 2 nights ago I installed a LED shop light from wally world in my storage closet so I could actually see my rolling stock and other supplies. Will post that picture later. I am currently immovable due to kidney stones.

Mail call from yesterday...my HO Bev-Bel Athearn 617, 50' Rail Box Car, Atlanta & St. Andrews #ASAB7085 -with KDs came in from evil bay. Took a quick pic of this yesterday.

I like it! Need to do a little weathering on it though! Doors open etc. I still love my BB Athearns!

Got an email for my Peco switches and track. Will be getting it next week woo hoo! The switches were on back order but now we are good to go!

"Drown" yourself. Definitely check with your urologist to see what to do! Hopefully you will pass them SOON! Since I tend to develop them, I've been advised to drink lemonade or limeaide. or at least add some to your drinking water. Best of luck!


I survived lol thank you everyone for the well wishes. Anyhow my progress has been a stand still at the moment. I have obtained some more track pieces needed before I get started with laying actual tracks. Still need a few more switches. I ordered some ground throws. I am holding off on the Tortoise switch machines. I am looking at other switch machines that are smaller and DCC compatible. I will be taking my time before buying swith machines. I am waiting to see other options and future tech advances. So for now ground throws.

I am slowly adding a few more pecies of rolling stock for interchange with the layout. I posted on the Mail call thread that information. Anyways I currently still have the EZ temp track down just so I can run some trains until I am ready to start layout new track. I like to have most everything together before I start. Once I start I don't want to stop or be delayed. So I slow and steady is my motto. I did reconfigure my temp EZ track so I could run 2 trains on 2 different mains and added a few spurs with what was left over. See attached pics.

In the mean time I have been fishing to stock up my food supply/freezer ;)

Future updates are coming I bought paint for the plywood deck and walls for sky blue application etc. Also more shelving to create a valance for the LED lighting I have and displays above the layout. So I know rainy days are coming I will be using that time for the layout.

Later!
