Hey, I saw the light on so I thought I would stick my nose in. Corned beef hash with poached eggs, and toast. Coffee is also on.
Summer really took a toll on my hobby time. I am hoping that I will find more time this winter. Otherwise, I will live vicariously through your guys' projects.
Cheers,
Dave

I was sad to hear of David Butlers passing this week, we had many conversations via private message. I hope that those who left before us will be getting the work bench ready.

I have not been around much for many reasons which I will not get into, but all is working out.

For anyone that has been following me, I have consistently mentioned my desire to build a WW1 Trench Railroad. Over the last couple of months I have slowly been tracking down kits and figures to use.

Some samples of what I have acquired.

The Howitzer is from Duncan models in the UK.

The Protected Simplex engine is a discontinued kit from Wrightlines in the UK.

I also have a BVM tin Turtle that I built as a test.

If you do a Google search for Ontraxx, (Large European model exhibition), you will find many many videos on Youtube. Many of these have WW1 layouts.

It's an interesting theme and I'm looking forward to seeing your results.

Hey all,
Well after a 3-month drought and a two-week deluge, we now have sun again. Do I take advantage of the nice weather to put up Christmas lights or hold out on the off-chance of nice weather further on? I will get a big "I told you so" from my better half if I end up doing it in the November snow or rain but I really like to keep my Christmas "season" relegated to one month. In the meantime, I will indulge in some coffee and danish!
Cheers,
Dave

OK I've got nothing to read so I thought I would invite you all over to share a few beers by our pool. Too humid here to play trains.
