    Looking forward to following your progress, David. We always enjoy seeing photos of a build. Hint, hint.

    Moose bid you hearty welcome to the greatest wee n-scale forum on the interweb!


    You might want to re-introduce yourself on the new member thread.

    And get your camera out and share photos of your new purchases ... Everyone likes photos, and as they say in the woods, no photos, didn't happen...

    Lot of thinks going in my yard this month. Atlas flex track for my next layout plan, accompanied by 12 switches #7 right and 12 switches #7 left. Clear all of them are code 55. One SD70ACe missing from my rack, the commemorative 4141 G Bush from Kato. Now i am upset. Was missing a period from store, on e-bay was at one point even 700$ (who it's stupid to pay), i bought this one and after landed on my hand i found KOBO one on MTS which have Loksound mounted from cradle.. I am for the moment stranded on my ship on Charleston SC, i was suppose to disembark on 26 march, but due to covit19 and impossibility to get a replacement on my position, i will enjoy my social distance with what i buy, until i can travel safe home. Last month i catch a SD70ACE from BLI, look okay, thanks to Spookshow for helping me going over my repulsion for this brand after my bitter taste with the AC6000 zombie Paragon3 locomotive.
    I LIKE TO WORK WITH BIG SHIP ENGINES BUT I SPEND MY FREE TIME AROUND N SCALE TRAIN MODELS.

    The new addition to the train room finally arrived:



    What I don't understand is why the nscale.net album turns the photo on it's side, no matter how I arrange the photo on my computer. The "edit photo" function on the profile/albums page has no functions other than to delete photo. Ah, well. You all get the idea of the well equipped train room.

    Actually, the only reason this little fridge is in the train room is that much of our household refrigerator is full of various kinds of flour that my wife uses for baking breads, cakes, muffins, etc. Who am I to complain?

    Nothing
    And I mean nothing . For the last 6 months or so I have collected all the supplies I need to build and scenic my layout . The one exception might be a Kato double track truss bridge . But even there I have a bridge I could repair and use instead . I have enough supplies to build at my pace for at least 6 months . I don't NEED any locos or cars or structures . Time to use what I have on hand , otherwise it may never get used .
    Besides that , I have another passion in life that I'm saving up for now , Dirt Bike riding , tho I'm stepping it down a bit this time and going the Dual Sport route . Hopefully that will be easier on my 58yo body , cause riding hard enduro wasn't lol

    Updates on my layout will be coming shortly showing what I've done lately with the supplies I had on hand

    It's not nScale.net. I bet that photo was taken with a cell phone? It's a flag that is embedded in the header of photos taken with cell phones to SUPPOSE to indicate what orientation the phone was in when the picture as taken. Many forum software misinterprets it. If the picture is a taken with a real camera this won't be a problem.

    Supposedly if you held the phone in landscape orientation instead of the more common portrait orientation, this won't happen. This seems more of a problem with iPhones than Android but I don't know if that's because of the popularity iPhones or a real equipment issue. I've experienced it myself with an Android.

    BTW, are you telling us that you need all those bottles to weigh down the tracks until the glue dries?

    Some people panic buy toilet paper (which gives a whole new meaning to the saying "Three squares a day"). But what if there is a run on quality BEER?!!!! I'm ready.

    Default new toy

    I stepped up and bought a new "Scale train Big Blow Turbine". Now I need to figure out how to set up the DCC on our layout. I have been putting it off but all this spare time had me looking to much. Looking forward to running it hopefully soon.

    Bought several of these for under my layout, 2 weeks at home is very good for a neat and tidy trainroom.

    Bought these two kits from Perplexing Puzzles Plus on EBay store. https://www.ebay.com/str/perplexingpuzzlesplus

    The Hardware store is going to be a Bar/Restaurant, just need to make the front windows smaller. The Sheriff Office is for.....I know I bought it for parts for something but it escapes me now. Old age I guess, they say the memory is the second thing to go and I forget what the first thing is.
    20200406_203841.jpg
    Opened the Hardware kit up and I notice they have upped their game. Notice all the parts are labeled now and the window material has the outlines of the different size windows and pre-printed lettering on the windows. Nice.

    Just ordered the following RSLaser Kits from Rich -

    First Bank


    Medford General Store


    Dakra's Dry Goods


    Roundtree Farm House


    On @Janbouli suggestion, the Bank will be the Bank (go figure that one?); Medford general Store will turn into a local Hardware Store and Dakra's Dry Goods will become a local (now out of business after something like 50 years, Pharmacy

    All I have to do now is keep this purchase from my CEO. I'm almost out of my annual budget ...

    Small purchase from Deben LLC. California Freight and details. A Chevy flat bed truck for which I need to find a welding set-up. Two brick steps, four pallets of sacks for the Milazzo building and some roof hatches.

    Until this whole ruddy mess with corona virus settles down and I know whether or not I'll still have a job to go to at the end of it all, all spending on trains has ceased at it is only essential items that are getting paid like the mortgage, utilities, food and household products, and red wine of course :-)

    I like Hattons and Osborne Models. Note I have only ever brought from Osbornes in their shop in Bideford Devon but hear they are a good online retailer as well.

    I lived in Ipswich for a year doing my internship in Martlesham Heath at Adastral Park (renamed that while I was there) great town.
