      Sadly, no Sean.

       

      I've spent all year so far working on my shop, working on my farm tractor (1948 Frod 8n) , working at the EBT, and making sure I still pay attention to my family.  Things have progressed well in all the fore mentioned areas though, and I'm looking forward to a lot more model train time next year and this winter. 

       

       The 7.5" gauge has steadily been sinking into the ground due to a lack of any road bed beneath the ties.  You can't even see any of the ties any more unless you dig through the grass between them. The track still functions fine though and we regularly transfer large loads from the cars to the house on the flat car.

       

      I'm really getting antsy to start the F scale layout this coming spring, and one way or another it will happen. I've actually been acquiring a lot more equipment lately that helps drive the desire. In the past year its been a second Accucraft #12, 16 more hoppers, 2 passenger cars and two box cars.  I really want to get this stuff rolling! 

       

      So yeah, not a lot going on with the railroads right now, but tons of prep and I'l have great space to work on this stuff when I start. It's just taken almost three years to recover and get things the way I want after our move. I'm not complaining one bit though. The house, yard and work space will be 10 x better than what I had before the move. Sorry I've been a stranger around here.

      -Randy

      Hey stranger. At least you know where your priorities lay. Moving into a new house and into a new job is a big adventure. Your still young, you've got time. Besides once you start on the new layout, will it ever get done?....................

      Just don't continue to be a stranger, keep us posted.
