Good afternoon folks,
Must be real busy all 'round since no one had a chance to drop by! Coffee is on; my daughter made oatmeal cookies so dig in. Sunday was beautiful but my hopes to go for a motorcycle ride were dashed by the missus declaring we were ripping down the fence that got done in by the last windstorm (sigh). On the good side, I got my electrical working and the loco can negotiate the two modules without problem. Next is installing turnout controls.
Cheers,
Dave

'Morning all. So yesterday's sun was nice but it has now become rain AGAIN with more rain to follow for the next two days. The back yard is like a squishy swamp. My hydrophobic dog doesn't even like walking on it. Got a little time on the RR last night installing bullfrog turnout controls. Today's menu is French Toast, Maple Syrup, yogurt and fruit. Coffee, of course.
Have a good one.
Cheers,
Dave

Well yesterday was our 40th wedding anniversary. Had a swell time with Gena. We went on a 10 mile hike in the wilderness with the dog!

Buttermilk Falls and Emmert Falls

Paying today! Rusty like ....an old wrench!

Just sticking my nose in to see what's what. Cleaned up the champagne bottles and glasses :-) Pot of coffee is on, hot cross buns are toasty warm and there's some fresh fruit. Family (in-laws, boyfriends, etc) coming over tomorrow so it will be hectic. It will be my Dad's first view or the layout (such as it is) so that will be exciting. All the best for Easter, God Bless.
Cheers,
Dave

Hope everyone had a good weekend. I got to spend the day yesterday ripping out shrubs in the backyard in anticipation of a yard renewal effort that I'm sure will take all summer. Not looking forward to that. In the meantime, there's oatmeal, fruit, toast and coffee.
Cheers,
Dave

Looks like the crew is busy elsewhere. There are sandwiches, chips (crisps, for you guys across the pond), and coffee. Carrot cake has nuts, so beware.
A couple of nice days have turned into overcast ones with threat of rain. Grass will soon be out of control.
Need to get some masonite for my fascia, valance, and terrain backing. I realized I can't install my push/pull controls for my turnouts until I have the fascia on. Another speed bump! Oh well. Hope you all have a great day!
Cheers,
Dave

Good morning. Looks like the yard need mowed again. Some errands to run later. Worked a bit on the twin shay last night & the night before. Plumbing the compressor and injector pumps. Wire bending. Getting close to the headlight bracket build.

As of late I have been redrawing plans out of
December 1981 RMC, Wesolowski's Crossing Tower which is IMHO nice. I'm planning on scratch building once I get the plans modified.



The tower is octagon shaped with 2 stories. Has a lower and upper floor with straight run stairs and a covered landings at the entry door. It had an 8 sided steep roof with a neat finial for the cap. Has On30 written all over it. The upper floor has 7 windows and a door. The lower floor has one window and one door. Actually this would fit any era layout. The original was located in LaCrosse Wisconsin. After an exhaustive search it appears to be gone forever. I did run across a manufacturer who did a watered down version of the structure in HO scale. Attached are a couple of photos if anyone is interested.

The article was by Wayne Wesolowski, RMC Dec 1981.

Philip, I'm not seeing any photo links. Am I missing something?

Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

Philip, Keep up the work on the Shays. Everyone is looking forward to the finish! It looks like your photos didn't make it.
Coffee is on. Sticky buns are on the counter.
Did some shopping at Michael's again last night - got some foamcore board and ink. 50% off coupons are great! Does anyone ever buy anything at full price there?
Have a good day,
Cheers,
Dave

Michael's runs the air brush sky high and then has a coupon for 50% off. It is marked up so high it's cheaper to buy from the competitor. Still like Michaels!

No photos for the tower as it's copyrighted. The copyright police here are bullpunchers Sorry. If you need a copy I'll happily scan it and send it via personal email.

I entered a different search term and found a copy. The photos are 3/4 down the rather large page. http://teamtrack.soforums.com/t214-CONTEST-INTERLOCKING.htm?start=15
