    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!

    Actually did some framing on the wall of my soon-to-be railroad room. Not sure why the doorjamb instructions say to make the hole in the framing so big so you can shim it to make it plumb.... If I'm making the framing anyway, why not just make it plumb to begin with???

    Wood expansion - if you make the frame tight to the door, any wood expansion/contraction may twist the door frame precluding opening it or closing it. Shims avoid this as they are usually a different type of wood - more compressible.

    Fair enough. That makes sense
