    • Andy;

       

        I think that was a wise move, young fellow.

        We have cancelled the "Invasion" also, in July.

            It's too bad to be missing out, meeting all our great friends, you and me; but preserving common sense, and health comes first.

        I wish you, Andy, and your good looking, friendly partner, Jane, good health through this year of "Challenges". I look forward to hearing of great operations at your place, in the years ahead.   I really would like to attend one of them, but travelling is not very good on my health.

          My best wishes, Andy, and Jane.

    • Wouldn't ya know it, the weather is gorgeous.  Oh well, Freedom to Assemble will resume.  Social distancing could be achieved, but the passing of transmitters, could be a problem.  It was still a good decision, but that doesn't mean we have to like it.

      Just like we said Andy, stay safe! See you soon. 

      Once we are back to abnormal, you will have to come by and see "andy's racetrack".  It is almost done. You always said Jane had you on a 10 year plan for your railroad, I'm guessing that I'm about the 100 year mark.  

      No, Matt...   I had the 10 year plan, Jane wanted to make it a 2 year plan...

      Hope the ""raceway"" is double tracked so my loco's can pass yours....

      The May 2020 Operations session is cancelled due to CV-19..

      I had to do a double take when you said CV-19. To this old Vietnam era Navy vet that would be the aircraft carrier USS Hancock!

    • As I said in the email, probably the best thing to do.  This is all going to get back to a new normal.  Never thought I'd look forward to the heat of Summer.

      It all sucks dad but now more than ever would be a good time to pony up a $1 and send the CV the $20 you owe it!

    • Have used car-card waybills for over 30 years, makes "operations" more enjoyable. When I worked on the railroad (NYC-PC-CR) I would print train consist on trains operating between Chicago/St Louis and New York/Boston. That would give me access to origins both east and west of where I lived. I would make up a waybill for loads coming from somewhere off my rr to customers on my rr, also a destination for products originating on my rr. I also send & receive traffic from friends layouts. I also have waybills for traffic operating from my basement HO layout to me outdoor rr. Making up waybills I find to be very interesting.    Since I model in the mid 60's, if a waybill i found was billed lets say via UP, I would check out city of origin and then use my Official Guide to determine if that car on the UP was back then coming via the SP, MP, WP, CNW, or UP
