OCSMR-Ocean County Society of Model Railroaders Club in their new location with many pictures showing our progress.

Yep, had the glue spray bottle aimed at Bud to stay away and let me glue those buildings in place! 

Still have to tweak some ballast and scenery areas with additional glue spray as some areas did not get enough to make it solid.

Work continues on Tuesday night there.

It's been a bit chilly lately and our heater's been running.  On an excursion to the HO side, noticed that the passenger platform for the Manasquan station has developed some dihedral.  Hope it's not ready to "take off".

JohnBrandt seems a bit concerned about painting in the dark.  Guess he doesn't want to use candles like the Masters of old.

Wow, a picture of Tony laboring, sweating as well! Merrill has defected from the dark side to the bright side. Seems those HO are too small for him to play with. So, after further discussions, we accepted his job application as long as he curtails his singing.

I am amazed there is no pictures of me this time. I was there working with Dave spotchecking the scenery and filling in the gaps.

Signing his masterpiece.

Vince and his grandson Sabino visited the club.  About a month ago Vince visited with his granddaughter and Sabino's sister, Lil Liz.  Since all tracks had not been completely cleaned after ballasting, was able to run on only track 1.  Chose a conventional powered diesel.  However, Sabino wanted to run with the remote just like his sister did when she had visited.  Got out the ten-fingered crane and put the Legacy NYC steamer on the track.  Gave Sabino the remote and a few instructions, and off he went.  Couldn't have been happier.

Vince said that Sabino will be getting his own train to run along with his 1/43 race cars.

A few overall shots of the mural.

JohnBrandt captured an image of Sasquatch somewhere on the mural.  Don't know how he did it since there were no telltale footprints.  If you can't find him,  will post a pic later.

The mural looks great, John!!  Will something go in front of the gray sections in the city area?

Ted had answered the question.  But to answer your question directly, those gray and brown areas represent where the club will put building flats or add building parts on to.  What they want to make them look like I will leave it to them.

Thank you for watching, Mark.  I appreciate the comments.
