    Been spending most of my time wearing out Exacto blades cutting Bluford Shops corn rows off of their sprues, so kind of a dull week for me. I did manage to provide another Hope resident with a lawn, a driveway and electricity.

    Heh, yup

    I really like the Branchline Trains "Thelma & Stanley" house set. Give 'em garages and a few details and they look like "real" houses (and yet hardly take up any real estate).

    Going to be all computer/electronics work (and spending money on ebay) for me this weekend. The layout room is an upstairs spare room... it hit 108 yesterday, beating our all-time record by 3 degrees, so I am hiding in the basement until further notice.

    I stopped what I was doing to take pics. "Hey, it's okay, it's okay... you're welcome!"





    I just got done cutting a paper template. Going to cut three layers of subroadbed from the template to complete a large area of benchwork. Each layer will be slightly different to allow for elevation changes.

    Always felt corners suck but I finally got another one figured, It's only taken 10 years. Still some more work to be done with details but it's a start. I also swapped my diner, and firehouse, and did some landscaping behind it. More in detailing to come. Damn this takes a long time!

    Good morning,

    Saturday:

    I added the grabs and steps to the head end cars for the Lark
    The RPO



    The baggage express



    Sunday:
    Started off by painting the light gray on the 22 roomette Pullman


    Then I decided to start on the 4 10-6 Pullmans -- off to a decent start.



    Hope Y'all had a great weekend,
    Wolf
