Mike, Eggcellent!

Again, it is great to have fun stuff to do because there is so much of the other kind of stuff that requires doing.

Mike g, Happy belated birthday. I like the extension of the table. Always nice when you can squeeze in some layout time. I have yet to do that. As soon as I can catch up on the yard work from being aways for a long weekend for the Menards show. 

Mark, inbetween all you have going on you still found time to work on your layout.

I posted the few pics I took at the Menards show. That night it was a trip to Elliots for a great evening. I didn't get a chance to meet Patrick but we got a chance to meet Elliots son. So Mike g I think I am going to have to do two posts for the pics of Elliot's layout. It is much better to see it in person. The Lionel caboose with the camera gives a whole different look to the layout. Going to post pics in four parts.............Paul 2

I finally found a small Panasonic shop that sells rechargeable AAA batteries (I live in Mexico). After disassembling the Lego dead rail locomotive I had assembled four months ago, I replaced the batteries and it runs great.

And a hobby shop in Guadalajara (one of two stores that sell model trains in the entire state) confirmed today that they have the kind of HO diesel I want to buy. We're heading there on Saturday.

Paul, I can't begin to thank you enough for the pics of Elliot's Setup. I follow him to listen to all that is being done and still did not imagine it being so fantastic.

Elliot, how can you not stop and run trains? What a marvelous layout. YOU are one DEDICATED MAN! I admire that. Gunner Runner John is the other person I enjoy watching build a layout. Both of you are masters! Thank you for sharing with us even it if does take someone like Paul to come take the shots of your layout Elliot.

Thank you for posting! Elliot's layouts have always been inspiring but this is something else. I can't wait to start building my own permanent layout. I'll certainly draw from this when designing it.

Paul, great photos of a great layout! Thanks for sharing your adventure with the rest of us! When I get home from work tonight I hope to look at the slower, but I have to run to do another dive this morning!

Howard, the handcar shed looks great! It fits perfect on your layout! Nice work!

Well no train room for me today as I have diving then off to work. Same for tomorrow. But the Friday and the weekend are open so I hope to get something done!

Its Wednesday Hump day so everyone had a great day and please have FUN!

Thanks Paul for sharing your photos of Elliot's layout.   Wish I could have been there!   My 4th of July trip to Bayfield, WI got in the way so thanks again for sharing.   

Gandy, great job on the shed.   Kit or scratch build?

Cheers, Dave

Curtish, I think the mountain is looking really nice!

Brian, great pictures~! Make sure you take care of IZZY in this heat! I think she might need some extra ice cream! LOL

Another day of diving, then work so I don't think I will get anything done today, but I have tomorrow off from work so maybe then!

Dave, it was a kit from Ameri-Towne. Thanks for not being able to tell! Lol

What'd I do?  Done with trackplan tweaks (at least on the South side of the layout ) so starting to figure out what parts I need for a proper control panel. Will need a bunch of miniature SPDT momentary toggle switches (for track switches), a bunch of miniature SPST momentary toggle switches (for remote uncouplers) and a bunch of red/green LEDs (for track switch indicators). Already have SPDT switches to control my under-track car-braking devices.

Pulling the refinery:

Those loads will be coupled to the orange B&P boxcar to start assembling the outgoing half of the turn. The empties seen in the right background will be spotted for the refinery. All in a day's work on the Plywood Empire Route.

Finished installing the last 100 feet of fiberboard for the girders and got another 20 feet of cardstock girders spray adhesive on.  Have to install another 150 linear feet of the cardstock and then I can wire track for power.  Next 3 days booked so no work until Monday.  Layout is a complete disaster as I had to keep moving everything around as I was attaching the girders.  Here is where i am at now.

Bryan, you are doing a great job. I am glad you took my motivational classes. That's going to be a really striking focal point on the layout. Down the road you are going to have to show me how to do that on a computer.

Mark, I have lost a lot of sleep pointing Bryan in the right direction. But he listened, learned and stayed at it LOL

Thanks guys, so Paul it looks like you can stop bugging me and start your rigorous training on Mark.  Sorry Mark but I need the break.  btw Paul to commemorate your tutelage I have something personalized on the layout just for you.  Not quite done yet but should be able to unveil it next week.

Lew, I feel your pain. I tried to keep mine nice and neat, but in the end it still looks like a rats nest! At least you have a plan for the refinery!

Dobermann, the cemetery is looking good!

Mitch, very impressive! Some very cool stuff on display!

Bryan, WOW you have been busting butt! Very nice work!

Paul 2, your quite the motivator, If I were you Mark I would watch out, the next thing you know Paul will be charging for his services to supplement his layout! 

Brian, great pictures! But please do me a favor and make sure your well stocked up with Ice Cream for Marci and Izzy! I am not sure you need any as you have that beer train running around there somewhere! LOL

As for me I was right no train room today due to doc and work, Just got home and its almost bed time! But tomorrow is Friday and only diving tomorrow, so it looks good right now

I lied. I'm still on the hunt for that Mustang in approx. O scale. The above car is really a Mathbox Premium Corvette. Arnold

LOL. My first car was a ‘69 Ford Galaxy XL.  I’ll never find a model of that!  Scratch build?  No, not me.  LOL
