      I have created two albums and uploaded as many pictures as I can into them. The first is a bunch of Prototype pics from the Oklahoma Railway Museum the second is all of the layout pictures. They are an unsorted collection of what seemed the most interesting.

      ... 

      I will be deleting the photos in this thread soon as I need the space in my Freightshed for pictures, cartoons and gifs that I can use to ridicule Rooster in chat.

       

      I like the photos and your sense of priorities. Thanks!

    • Finding a place to stay has been an adventure. We prefer to bring our dog, but that limits hotel choices. Just in case we reserved kennel space and I have two rooms booked   It looks like we will cancel our expensive room at the Hilton Garden Inn in Devens and our kennel reservation and stay at Motel 6 in Leominster, This allows us to stay Sunday night and bring the dog all for less money.  I usually stay at Motel 6 in York where the rooms are sparse, but clean. It's just a bed after all

    • Would love to. You need to reserve very early and there is a hefty cancellation fee. Way too late now and I wan't sure if we could swing it having just spent 11 days vacationing in MA and CO the first week of July.

      Finally put in for my vacation time.  August schedule is tight because my brother (73 yo) decided to make his 15y year engagement legal the following weekend and they want Marilyn and I to be the witnesses.

       

      Tentatively staying at the Hilton Garden Inn in Devins -OR- The Holiday Inn at Boxboro. I used to go to the later every October for a ham radio convention. Been probably 20 years or more since I was last there. It used to be like York with an indoor pool/patio and rooms opening to the pool area. Probably much different now.  Hilton is cheaper with Marilyn's Senior Discount.

       

      Still keeping fingers crossed we can do Fri-Sun nights and travel home Monday. Still working on budget. Spent way too much in Colorado

       

      What happened to staying at the camp grounds in a cabin ?

    • My third east coast trip of the year is coming soon. I made reservations at the HI Express in Hudson (Marlborough area) for the 10th through the 14th. It looks to be reasonably close to Littleton on the map. Mary has a lot of family in the area since she is originally from Boston. She will be out visiting while I play trains. I plan on taking the northern route and making it there in three days. I will be staying in Effingham, IL on the 8th and DuBois, PA on the 9th. Hopefully I will be able to see the trains when I get there. I had cataract surgery on the right eye last Thursday and will be getting the left eye done next Thursday. Between that and the macular degeneration in both eyes, it’s a wonder I can see anything at all. May have to move up to 1:1 scale soon!

       

       

      Looking forward to seeing everyone,

      Bob
