TomOís rain passed thru here overnight complete with thunder and lightning. Itís still wet and about 50 here around 0945. There is a forecast of some sun later and pleasantness for trick or treaters.

The Doll had her DNA done recently and had a great uncle that said they had an Indian in the family so decided sheíd go dressed as Pocahontas today. Iíll dress as usual, plaid shirt and bib overalls....daily dress here.

Some progress on the layout wiring reorganization yesterday. Poking along with no deadlines for anything.

Have a good day all.

Good morning everyone.

Reg and decaf coffee are ready, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Pepper too.

A mix of sun and clouds with temps in the low 70's in Joisey today.
Even though it will be in the 70's we are required to wear a coat or jacket at work today.
As if that will help keep trains running on time.

Tom, hope Terry's surgery went will and wish her a speedy recovery.

Have a great day everyone.

As you think, so will you be.

Grey and damp this morning in Michigan. The weather cleared off and was ~50 for the kids adventures yesterday.

I drove the Doll into town so she could go with her grand kids and I picked up supplies at Menards. There were lots of kids out last night.

Wiring today for me as she heads over to prep her booth at the store for their big sale Sat and Sun.

Everyone have a good day.

Hazy cool day on the Brazos. Should be nice tomorrow.

Good morning folks,

Jerry, thanks for coffee and breakfast!

It's going to be a nice day on the Brazos. High around 75F, no rain.

Going to work on the bench today. I think I'll tackle those roof panels again.

Have fun,
Mike

38 going to 45 with 1/3 of the sun peeking from behind a cotton ball. Thatís what the phone shows, the Mk-I eyeball sees clouds, and more clouds.

Tinkering more today with power distribution on the layout. I can attest that a dcc signal can run 40 feet from the last power drop if needed. That is a whole length of a segment i did on my upper deck. Iím going to put in properly spaced drops later but that segment has worked flawlessly for a couple years without them. Just fyi. Rail joints of the flex track was soldered into 3 3í sections with a non soldered joint for expansion/contraction before the next trio. Switches on my layout get unsoldered joiners in case of a need for maintenance, they come out easier. I use Atlas code 100 track an #6 switches on the mainline. Each 3í section will get a power feed as I do them.

Weekend is about here, OPS tomorrow at the Sunset Valley, always enjoyable. Everyone stay safe and healthy.
