Good morning. It's clear and 72.
Steven, happy birthday.
Steven, happy birthday.
Hey Joe. My daughter and her family are leaving Friday, headed for the State of New Jersey. They're going to the southern part near Philadelphia, specifically to Marlton near Cherry Hill. Against my advice by the way. They are driving. Is there likely to be any issues with them having Texas license plates going into your state? They are leaving Friday. They will mainly be staying with my SIL's parents both in Marlton and their beach house somewhere near by.
Greg, I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. I bought 5 gallon buckets, Lowes had separate screw on lids. Never seen a mouse since.Besides, the deer, chipmunks and squirrels eat the bulk of the bird seed. Wait a second, I forgot the pounds of sugar for the hummers!
It's officially my Birthday, but we are celebrating on Saturday. Grandson is coming over for a visit, so it's going to be a great day!
Bunker - Too bad about having to remove that wonderful Santa Fe paint scheme from the GP9.
Happy Birthday, Steven! Hope you enjoy your day, and have a great
It's funny. You're the second person to tell me that, Willie! Unfortunately, it didn't fit with my aesthetic, so it has to go. Darned thing really is putting up a fight, though. May need to abandon the Denatured Alcohol route and try something else. Anyone know what active ingredient in Oven Cleaner works as a paint stripper? I want to make sure I buy the right type.
Cheers, everyone! The weekend is starting early for me, and Bob and Doug are headed home in a couple days!
Bunker—if the percentage is not 91 or better I have not had success stripping paint from shells. Good luck.
Check the owner's manual for your BLI engines. It specifies the CV number and value depending on what position in the consist the engine is located.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 4108 (CV-39) MU'd to 4103 (CV-38). they have run short hood to short hood since I've had them. View attachment 115721Now for the odd part. I set BLI 8113 to CV-39. The aim was for long hood to long hood. 8043 is set CV-38. Before MU'ing both engines went in the same direction, perfect. MU'd 8113 to 8043 and a tug of war ensued. After removing MU, I changed 8113 back to CV-38. Now before MU'ing they went in opposite direction, again perfect. MU'd 8113 to 8043 and they both went in the same direction. It appears MU'ing actually changes the direction of BLI engines. So in the photo CSX 8048 and 8113 are both CV-38

I was wondering if anyone else has found BLI engines to be different than other brands?
