    Default Take 3

    Hello Folks,
    Some of you may remember me.......and some are probably still trying to forget.
    It seems that some time ago I posted on here that I was returning to the forum after being sidetracked for quite a while with Vintage cars.
    I got started again but soon was distracted a second time.
    Well, I'm back yet again.....for the 3rd time.
    I look forward to frequenting these pages again, catching up on what's what, absorbing as much as possible and, you never know, I just might be able to contribute something too.
    The Lone Wolf Railroad lives.
    Cheers,
    Rob

    Thanks for the "Welcome" Gents. Its much appreciated.
    Even though I've done some work cleaning up my train room and getting things out of mothballs, I wont be able to start work on it for another 6 weeks......despite being really keen to do so.
    My excuse is one, the seeds of which, were planted 100 years ago.
    My wife and I are travelling to Villers Brettoneux France (The Somme) to see where my Grandfather and his 3 brothers fought during WW1.
    All 4 of them were seriously wounded, but they all managed to return home and carry on full & fruitful lives.
    During this *&^%$ my Grandfather won the Distinguished Service Medal, considered a near miss for the Victoria Cross.
    Sandy and I have a fairly comprehensive tour booked and look forward to seeing the new Sir John Monash Center https://sjmc.gov.au/ and to paying homage to not only these 4 men, but to all who made the ultimate sacrifice.
    Thanks again & Cheers,
    Rob

    Hope you get in some train travel over there. So interesting to see what is possible with passenger service in other countries.

    Honoring those who served and died, on both sides, is a good thing. While there, contemplate the senseless leadership that sent so many to their deaths and permanent injuries through outdated tactics in the face of modern weaponry; and the nationalistic militarism of all the nations involved that dragged so many countries into the maelstrom.

    Hello again Gents,

    Well, here I am with some big feelings of guilt.
    Guilt because I've been back for several months now and still haven't struck a blow on my layout. BUT, I did go out to the shed and had a good look at things today.
    The South East of Australia is presently in the grip of a heatwave and it was just too damned hot to really do anything out there.

    I have many of them, but my biggest fear is that because I've been away from the hobby for so long, that when I finally do get the track laid and the wiring finished, I wont be able to sort out my loco's. They all have decoders installed and although I follow instructions well, I am getting older and that good thing is on a collision course with an ever deceasing level of patience. I doubt I'll ever get to the stage of wanting to throw something across the room, but I can see me walking out of the train room totally frustrated and fed up.
    So, please Gents (along with any ladies who might frequent these pages now) be on standby for some stupid/dumb questions, because I'm sure I'll have a few.

    The attached photos indicate the reason for the long break away from the hobby. "Evangeline" a 1915 Model T Ford Speedster. Not a restored car, but one I've built from bits-n-pieces. Seats, floorboards and a few other minor things will finish the project......then its back to N Scale.

    Cheers,


    PS; I cant wait for the weather to get cooler....

    You're scratch-building a Model T?

    She sure looks nice! Thank you for sharing...

    Now, go scratch-build an air conditioning system for your train facilities and get cracking on that layout mister!
