Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Monday, August 19, 2019
« on: Today at 07:23:30 AM »
Good morning! It's Monday again. We have been having evening Thunderstorms here the past few nights - I have been riding them out in the gazebo - I really enjoy it as long as there isn't too much wind. I'm spending the day wiring - except for mowing the lawn and those usual outside chores.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning.  The sun is coming up and it's beautiful on the Manistee River in Michigan. I just thought I would see if I got a signal and ended up opening. I'm fishing below high bridge where the PM railroad used to cross the river.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning!  The sun is shining here - what a welcomed sight.  My day is going to be split between the layout and some time in the yard.  I may just work in the gazebo this afternoon - great place to assemble the control panel for the new section of the layout.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! I spent most of the day working outside, yesterday. I earned a day working on my trains. ;)  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! It's time to get up and get started on your modeling. At least for those of us that have put in our 30 - 40 years working in the 1:1 world. I'm going to be building benchwork today.  It looks like I can spend the day in the garage cutting lumber.  The rest of the week sounds like it will be a washout and cold to go along with it. At least we put together a string of three very nice sunny warm days.  I hope everyone has a great day.


Update:  Our rain arrived 7 hours earlier than predicted on the weather channel.  I guess it was more important to update the adds than the forecast.  I guess we need to look at the radar ourselves and forget about their written forecast. Just sayin.

Good morning! We are finally having some beautiful weather 70's and sunny here yesterday and today. Is it safe to take the plow off the tractor? I'm spending the next couple of days watching the Grandkids taking advantage of the spring weather. I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! More snow for us here.  I'm waiting for the day when I think it's safe to take the plow off the tractor.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! I don't open very often.  The time change has me waking up an hour earlier.  I'm heading to the lumber store to get materials for the new expansion of the S&S RR.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning! My internal alarm clock is out of sync and I woke up an hour earlier than usual. The coffee is done and I'm ready to play with my trains.  I feel like I should be heading out to the barn to help Jerry with the cows.  I grew up on my Grandparents farm and that work ethic never leaves you, even after 50 years.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Paint problem help!
« on: March 05, 2019, 07:23:55 PM »
What are you using for earth colored spray paint for castings?  My old standby for years has just failed me.  Here is a picture of two batches of castings painted with Krylon Khaki paint from two different rattle cans.




The castings on the left are the color I expect.  The little bit of green like old floquil earth color.
The castings on the right are from the newest rattle can that I purchased.
