That's a great looking barn. There are many around here in MI that are rapidly returning to the earth, it's sad. The inner workings of their construction is breath taking as well.

From something old to something new, the hardware is hung and the RS-36 project has hit the 99.5% point and are on the layout. The yardmaster allowed the motive power and PR departments a few minutes to line them up for the company photographer.


A fair bit of new snow this morning and I will have to get the other Green Machine out and clear things off. I did it yesterday and had a blast, but about froze my fingers. I hope to see the peek a boo sun tdday. Weather map on TV showed 22" of snow in Manistique (the UP) near my property.

Everyone have a good day.

Good morning folks,

Tom, thanks for coffee and the donuts, but about that coffee...

Nice photos Philip, thanks for posting.

Karl, nice bevy of diesels.

31F now but a promise of 61F later today makes a nice day to continue working on the doggie fence. Which reminds me, Rick, how is the electric fence training going?

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Mostly sunny, with a high near 43.

Karl, that's a nice looking fleet.

Mike, she respects the fence.
She's been zapped a couple of times but backed away quickly.
We've been outside when people walked by with dogs and stayed about 15 feet away from the fence.
I've gotten to the point where I leave the leash off, but I still go outside with her.

Jerry, I'm on the lookout for a new thread on the new project you teased us with the pic you posted yesterday.

Back to work.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning and thanks Rick for getting us going. The diet soda will be fine. Glad to read the dog is
responding to the fence. So. Wisconsin has 18f degrees now and heading to 30. Some things to go to
the post office later and then the day is mine. Not sure what but Iíll find something or with Terry home I
am sure sheíll have something. Enjoy your day.

Had a nice post all written up and it seems I didn't hit SUBMIT, so Hi all. Up early as my 0500 whiz break I lay wide away until 0600ish and got up.

Snow here overnight, temp in the teens. May have to get the equipment out before I decide on going to the Division meeting today. It's all across the Lansing area and if my ears are fubar there's no point going, frustrating myself and everyone else with "Pardon me?, What?, Excuse me?" or nod and grin when you don't have any idea what was just said. Ears were good the last couple of days but faded to near zero late in the evening. Steady white noise this morning but can hear the keystrokes as I type. Too much salt and stress seem to affect the ears, had both yesterday.

With the new RS fleet sort of done I stripped and am repainting an nearly new in the box older Stewart Baldwin switch engine from the estate of our fellow operator at the Nashville Rd. and Division officer. We have Andy has a Tennessee Central segment that has no home power and I am making the unit up in TC with a note of memorial to our friend on it. I like the running characteristic of the Stewart, it has an NCE DASR no sound decoder and runs stutter free on my dirty layout.

Everyone have a good, safe, relaxing day.

Hit Send dummy!

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

I'll try to start that thread this week.
You be careful out among the English!

Weather in South Jersey sunny/32 right now. Later on mid 40's.

We have some errands to run. Then some bench time later on.

Karl hope you feel better as the day goes on.

Everyone have a wonderful day.

Howdy folks,

Rick, thanks for opening and the iced tea...

It's bright but windy today with the temps in 60's. More doggie fence installation today. Sweetie the dog found an opening and leaped down a five foot wall to say hi to the dogs next door.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Rain today, but high at 70F.

I ran out of fencing yesterday and had to order 50 feet to finish.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning all. Hazy sun with 25 degrees here around 0830. The weather is to deteriorate into snow afternoon and wintry mix overnight and then a bit of sun tomorrow but a sloppy commute.

After I s\cleared off the snow yesterday I accompanied the Doll on a trip to W Lansing, Hobby Lobby again. It's become her second home I think. She had a mail order package from them in the mail yesterday as well. We found out that Sparty didn't party t well in AA so hit the DELETE button on the DVR. I did some more work on the Baldwin I am redoing as well as put a couple parts on an older metal truck kit by Ivers Engineering as a diversion from trains.

Today I'll tinker with the Baldwin and prepare for an ops session tomorrow at Keeney's.

Everyone have a good day.

Good morning from falling white stuff So. Wisconsin. At least 4Ē now and still falling. Rick, thanks for moving this day forward. The diet sodas taste great. The grandson has a hockey game at 11 and falling snow and accumulation doesnít stop hockey games or the drivers! Other then that nothing is scheduled, so enjoy your days.
