Hello Gang;

Well as promised here are the first shots of the train room as it undergoes it's revamp.
The new flooring is in and we started painting the upper half of the room blue tonight. Haven't gotten too far but thought I'd show off a bit anyway. I'm as happy as a kid in candy store.

As soon as the room is done... Monday we think.. then the bench work goes up. ;)

It ain't much but boy does it feel good! :)

Hope you all are doing well too.

Is there a train room in the world that does not have a pile of Walthers Cornerstone kits in it?

Looking really good. The plan on the wall looks good as well.

Feels good doesn't it? I'm making headway on my new layout as well. I am going
to do the same thing and paint the background blue.

And I've always liked hardwood floors. Yours look great. Dave

Hey, hey, hey! Always feels great to get underway with a train project. I like the blue sky color. I know you will keep us posted as it progresses. Have fun!!!


In Training Down Under.
That room is alot bigger in person than on paper, it will be a great RR.

Jan is on her way she loves 'cutting in' the paint around the top of the walls (NOT) great job GC.
