This is the new place. Grab a cup and a seat.
Sherrell - it looks like an A/C window unit on steroids, but functions as a heater in the winter and an A/C in the summer. As for the dehumidifier, I haven't had any problem with humidity [or the lack thereof] in the 4 years since I built my layout, so I'm going to hold off on that for now. [Nowadays I'm using it for heat, so water drainage isn't a problem.]I'm not entirely sure what you are calling a "window-mounted heat pump"? Are you are referring to a window a/c unit ?
If you have an outlet for the drain -- try getting a dehumidifier. ...
Chet - My dad did not see action before the war ended. My uncle (Dad's brother) was a medic in the ETO - he never liked to talk about his experiences, though. When we lived in Spain, we traveled throughout western Europe, and visited the huge cemetery in Ardennes (Belgium). I can still remember being overwhelmed with emotion realizing the sacrifice those guys made so countries like ours could be free. (I'd rather not say my feelings about what's been done with that freedom over the years.)Good morning to all. 41 degrees to start off the day. Should make it into the high 50's by afternoon.
Eric - Nice to have you back posting. Sounds like you have a nice place where you are. Again, the bridge is a nice looking and a flat black would probably be the best color for it.
Johnny - I'm also a WWII buff and also read a lot about it. My father was in the Navy and stationed at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7th, but was pn a cruiser escorting the carriers when the attack occurred. That hooked me. Followed the Pacific theater and also when I was in the Navy visited many site in Europe where some areas were still being rebuilt from the war. This was in the late 60's. Also like to follow what the railroad did here during the war to move troops and supplies heading to war.
Willie - I'm not going to part with $225 for the RDC. (so far) I am running out of room to store locomotives and rolling stock on the layout. I saw Karl's spring cleaning post yesterday and was tempted by the Great Northern box cars but did restrain myself.
I did get a bit of work done on the layout yesterday besides doing some outside work. I had few grade crossings that had to be completed and finally got started on them after not doing anything with them for ten or fifteen years, if not more. Now it is time to work on older parts of the layout that have been neglected and need upgrading. Nice to be that far along.
Dude! He is risen IS the basis of what Easter is, just like Merry Christmas IS the basis of Christ being born. Easter was yesterday in the USA as we all saw it and he responded..... appropriately. If this bothers you then we should adopt a closer on politics in this forum as well as these CHRISTIAN celebrations of which you are apart of!Not a problem, really. All I ask is that you realize that there are people out here whose non-Christianity is as much a part of them as your Christianity is a part of you. If it's proper for you to proclaim in this forum that "He is risen!" then it's proper for me to respond in this forum with "Prove it!" or for a Muslim with "There is no god but Allah!" and so on.
This signature is intended to irritate people.
Followers of Oester, Eastre, Ashtoreth, Astarte and Ishtar might disagree with you.Dude! He is risen IS the basis of what Easter is...
I think you got that backwards. Anyway, my personal belief is that we should reinstate Saturnalia and move Christmas to October where it belongs....just like Merry Christmas IS the basis of Christ being born.
Wow. I seem to have struck a nerve.Easter was yesterday in the USA as we all saw it and he responded..... appropriately. If this bothers you then we should adopt a closer on politics in this forum as well as these CHRISTIAN celebrations of which you are apart of!
