Mark Bridgwater coming soon!

My good friend Mark Bridgwater is coming from Seattle on Tuesday.  I'm excited because we'll get lots of work done on the layout, right Mark ;-) and then we're going to run trains.  Hopefully a few other friends will be able to stop by so we can put the layout to the test, identifying problem areas and setting up a (Oh no, not another) PROJECT LIST...Argh!

Ok...all I gotta do is make more money so I can pay someone to do all this work!  The journey is getting old...I just want the destination!

More on Mark's visit later in the week.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Turnout motors installed and operating!

I was finally able to get more turnout motors installed and operating with the DS64's.  Still several more to go.  Was talking to Mary Barstow last week and I estimated about another 20 hours to complete this project.  Uh...I should add 100 more hours to that too!

Time has been short lately...not so much because of the holidays, but because work has been sooooo busy...but then that's a good thing!  On top of that, I've started a new business rehabbing houses.  I already worked 12-15 hours a day so now I have to decide what business am I working in for that 12-15 hours a day.  Good or bad, the days fly by!  Now if I could just get this third "job" going on a regular basis...oh wait, model railroading is not supposed to be a's supposed to be fun!

Phil Klein visits from Portland

Unfortunately, I remembered to take a photo AFTER he left!  Sorry Phil!  Phil was amazing at figuring out a few little electrical glitches.  Thanks again Phil!
