Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I wish to all of you a Christmas (yes, It’s still Christmas), and a New Year filled with graces, health, and blessings. Happy Steaming to all! Thank you for being loyal readers for all these years. I’ll try to do some updates and get some broken things back in order during this New Year.

Website issue

 The other day there was a problem with the website. Once I got it restored I saw there is an issue with “Clubs.” I’m working on getting it fixed. Thanks for your patience! 

G Scale wall layout

A few years ago, my dad and I put an N scale train, going around the wall in the great room. It was pretty awesome when we finished. But, there were two problems. When an N scale is 8′ about the floor, it’s a little difficult to see. And, the dust caused many problems with running. So, we decided to replace it with G Scale. I decided on USA Trains GP 38-2 and I wanted it to reflect our local short line, the Providence & Worcester. Problem is, you can get one off the shelf. After some research, I found Shawmut Car Shops. Jeff is really great to deal with and his work is superb. I wouldn’t hesitate to have him do work for me in the future.

The locomotive was waiting for me when I arrived for my day off today. You can also see my cars sitting on the mantle. We’ll get the track installed in the next week or so.
