Keeping up a multi-year tradition, the theme for this December is once again “Model Railroading is Fun”. As always, how you interpret this theme is up to you. Post photos that you feel show the fun side or our hobby. They can be shots of scenes from your layout, a current project you are working on, shots from an open house or show that you have attended, holiday setups or store displays, or people “playing” with trains. Hopefully, we all still are having fun in the hobby, so all we need do is use our imaginations on how to show that in a photo.

Please adhere to the following posting requirements: photo files should be no more than 80kb @ 72ppi in size - even if downloading from a remote server or website - and can be no more than 7 inches in width (to prevent viewers from having to scroll back and forth to see the entire photo or read text on the same page).

Photo submissions not meeting the above requirements will be resized by the Moderator.

Here's a picture of our module group setup at a local museum this past spring.

They (kids and grandkids) grow up so fast! Here, Jami found something at a show that he doesn't have. Grandpa just couldn't turn da-boy down!

Here's some pictures of my son's first kit (well he did most of the modeling). We call it "Rip Curly's Surf School" and its a minor kit bash of the Bar Mills Basic kit "Furlow's Freight".





here is the sign (my photograhpy skills are lacking so it hard to see above.) We downloaded the sign from Mike Tylick's web site
http://www.trainweb.org/tylick/



I think it's pretty funny and not bad for a 10 year old - although we did have a fairly large number of construction accidents - like super glueing the dock base to my workbench. Oh well that just more chances to teach problem solving skills.

By the way, the Bar Mills Basic kits a really great to introduce people to modeling. I hope they help bring in more people to the hobby.

Miles,

Your son did a great job on his first structure. You must be very proud of him.

By golly, looking at the first submission this month, I think you've got the idea behind the theme!

Jens, those are some nice mountains on those modules.

Miles, it looks like you and your son are having fun.

Ken & Allen, I'm going to have to get some new "grandkid" pictures myself.

George, you had a great vantage point for that photo.

Jens,
Great looking modules. I am pleased to see the transer table in the background. I seldom (if ever) see these in use on layouts in the U.S. What a great idea to implement them into a modular layout for staging! Bravo!

Chuck & I went to an open house at a local club last night. For the enjoyment of the youngsters coming though, the club had several of the Thomas characters in view.
