    Affinity Photo is temporarily on sale 50% off ($27).
    If you want cheap photo stacking, blemish removal, picture straightening, color correction,....
    this is for you.
    I've had it for several years and love its versatility.
    If you are fearful and need notes I can send you a cheat sheet ("entitled Affinity Photo for Dummies Like Rick").

    Had some new friends (from the Egg Harbor (NJ) train show) stop by for a visit.
    They bought some engines to run and Ken Richter shot a short video.
    The FAs belong to Bill Repholx, the EL RS3s to Ken Richter and the PRSL GP38 to Ed Jones.

    This is really from two weeks, since I had a vacation in between these, so three weeks overall.

    First, I finished my siding/yard for my industrial area:

    and this week, am laying more roadbed. The industrial track will have ground level ballast for all the track there, so Iím embedding into the foam:

    It was a busy weekend with my wife's birthday and Memorial Day, but I did manage to do a little more scenery work in the Canaan shop and yard area and the embankment by Specialty Minerals.

    Those colors on the engines bring back old CNW memories.

    I finished editing the video from my visit to the Prignitzer Kleinbahnmuseum Lindenberg last Friday.

    I particularly like the spot about minute 10 when that vintage car appears! Planned or serendipity, @SteamPower4ever?

    Very much planned. There were more of those moments like the vintage scooter at 15:47 and in the background at 19:04. There were also people in era clothing on the platforms and on the train in various shots. The trouble was that with 50-ish eager photographers I couldn't always get in position for those theatrics, so I focused my attention on the train itself and settled for whatever I happened to get of the sideshows.
