      Spring 2019 Flowers, Weeds and Track Work

      Spring time in New Mexico. Preparation for train running has begun on the Cibola Line.

       

      Rain! Best moisture numbers in New Mexico since 1959 according to the National Weather Service. Stone fruit has already blossomed and set. Lilacs coming on, apple tree in full bloom and tulips and iris busting with color.

       

       

      Then there is WEEDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

       

      And of course varmint damage....

       

      Clean up is under way. I will post more pics as I go. You can find the full thread for this year's trains running on the layout stuff here... https://cibolalmrr.com/about/trains-running-on-the-layout/

       

      Feel free to add your pics of garden color or adventures in weed removal on this thread.... because success is a singular blessing but misery loves company.

      I am not complaining because the glass is half empty nor that it is half full..it is simply the wrong flavor!

      The big question in the spring is "what made it and what didn't survive over the winter?"

      Boomer, looks great.  Much better than the time I saw your layout.  A little rain the in the Springtime helps a lot.  Should try to get down and run a loco with you.  Ski converted my K-27 too.  Both run great.  I'm a battery convert!

      We all know the truth of the adage, "everything runs great until the day of the open-house.."

      Here in NM Murphy sometimes puts in overtime. 31 hours ahead of open-house.

      0730:

      0830:

      0900:

       

      Fore cast is for more rain and sleet. I will keep you informed.

      I have no idea what that means Rooster, but here is a video from the open house:

       

      Rain stayed away long enough to enjoy trains and BBQ. Can't ask for better than that.
