    • The C.V.S.Ry. put together an inspection train together and ventured out for the first time since late fall.  First stop was WALL whener a minor clean up of debris was required to pass....

       

      Continuing on to Indian Hill Bridge. The bridge survived the winter still looking great (EDIT except for that piece of polystyrene that has de-laminated from the bottom that I just noticed)...

       

      At Pine Summit we encountered a debris pile that will need more manpower to clear...

       

      Then venturing further on foot we found Deep Cut loaded with wind-blown debris...

       

      Backing down the hill, then taking the spur to we fould track clear to Northvile where snow shovels still stand in preparation for the spring snow we hope will never come...

    • Had one nice day (Wednesday) to run a train and test out my new Climax on the layout.  Still needs to be hooked up to battery.  I also got to put my new switch in and test it out.  So far everything runs through it.

    • Here on the P&CS, spring rehab continues. I was glad when the rehab moved into the shade the other day.

       

      Next up, bridge repair.

    • Nice!

       

      Good people Ken!

    • Thanks Ken for opening up your layout for a couple of rednecks from Alabama.  Alan and I had a great time.  Ken has a fine layout and those of you who are going to the operating session in a couple of weeks are in for a real treat.  Wish I could join you.  Ken is a great ambassador for not only LSC but for the largescale RR hobby as a whole.  Did I word that right Ken?  I will be looking for that check in the mail.  All joking aside, Ken was a great host.  I hope to get back and operate more trains soon.  I will post some photos and a couple of videos when I get back home.  Again, thanks very much Ken.

    • A couple of months ago, Dan Hilyer from Alabama contacted me and told me he would be in Phila. on business and would like to visit my layout while he was in town. This week was the week he was in town so bright and early him and his buddy (crap, Dan I forgot his name already)set out for West Grove. After about an hour of the usually BS'ing that goes on after he arrived, he took a freight train around the layout.

      Here he meets the passenger in Mancos.

      Entering the Wye

      Stopping at the station in Hesperus.

      Waiting on the passenger train.

      It was pleasure putting another face to a name on LSC and having him visit the the layout. Great guy and we all had a good time. 

      Thanks for stopping by, Dan. Hopefully he can make it to an operating session and meet the the rest of these hooligans..............
