Wow, itís been 12 days since Iíve posted anything. Itís not easy getting old, certainly itís not for the weak.

After making another purchase from Evan Designs of 2 dozen pico sized LEDs Iím back to work on the boat repair build. Itís now fully lighted including the signage.



The small business on the side of the building is Tony Mazzulloís Yacht Brokerage.



Taking up the upper floors is Masolyís Boatyard Grill.



And the bay is operated by Calico Jackís Small Boat Repair.



I also painted on some nail holes and rust streaks. It just looked too neat and clean the way it was.

Good to see you open Chapter Two.

Did you get a cane?

Greg - I had to start somewhere and in tribute to you . . . Iím off.

Jerry Ė took almost 2 weeks but itís started. The cane lasted about 10 days and now the knee feels pretty good. I guess the shot helped.

Pete Ė ah yes Chapter II is in hand, broiled carp on the redwood slab yumm.

Thanks Mike.

Carry on Frank!

So how are all these "lit" buildings going to be fed on the layout?

From a hidden power supply underneath the tabletop?

Congrats on getting Vol. 2 started.

Didn't know about the knee problem.
Sounds like you're on the mend though.

Staying true to the nature of Frank's first post in this new volume, I found a picture of one of Frank's groupies wearing her favorite shirt.

Thanks Larry.

Mario Ė you gottaí be tough to get old.

Frederic Ė ah yes

Carl Ė thatís the part Iím avoiding. You had to bring it up. well here it is, I have to move the layout into its final location, roll it on its back and run then run bus wires the length of the layout. I already have the bus wiring for track section power and switch power. When I started this project I didnít plan on lighting the layout but between you and Mr. Light-up-the-night I now have another problem.

Rick Ė late but itís started. Itís been an unusual 3 weeks. First the shingles and then I messed up my left knee and was confined to the sofa and TV for another week. But Iím moving on now.

Thatís not the usual groupie I have following me. I usually get the, ďI had Lionel Trains when I was a kid, Iíll bet theyíre worth a fortune nowĒ!

Martin Ė see above. Nice to see you back.

Dave Ė thanks.

It sucks getting old. Sorry about the knee. I hope that it's minor. The knee that is not the groupie.
I've really enjoyed this thread and have learned (i hope) a lot from my visits. Thank you.


It's only make-believe
