    Kathy and I watched it last week and thought it was entertaining. We first read the Agatha Christie original, which the movie only followed in a general way, but that didn't stop us from enjoying the show.

    @Ntrainz1 kindly renumbered some RS3s for me (to make all the duplicate numbers go away) AND relettered an Atlas VO-1000 to approximate a Pennsylvania - Reading Seashore Lines' Baldwin S12 (BS12 in PRR & PRSL nomenclature). The photo is on Bob's own layout. (He sold out to Penn Central.)



    A real PRSL BS12:

    Is that the version with Lauren Bacall in it? Anyways, yeah, I agree. Here I am thinking I have the murderer dead to rights and it turns out they all took a stab at it, so to speak.

    Fred came over and we had a "micro" op session Saturday night, then he was back on Sunday and we got the track installed on the Gastonia staging yard and the stand installed on the wall for the drill press. Some pictures below.
