Christmas 2021

 Where does the time fly? I last blogged in July 2021 after an 8 year hiatus and hoped to have more pictures and descriptions of what is happening. 

Locomotive wise, The RTR had a complete failure with a Proto2000 GP38-2. It was a CSX for those that are interested. I'm told by a truly reliable source that this particular model had "Zincpests". For those of you that is new, it is the Zinc in the frame had too much Lead content and through age became VERY Brittle!. Now, of course I'm searching for another frame or maybe I'll have to break out the Milling Machine. 

On a personal note, the wife and I have moved, downsized, though not all our stuff has been gone through, we are making headway!

 8 Years since the last entry and it will be another 6 months until Kathy and I are in the new house and I'll able to play train. 

I packed up all my train stuff, excluding paint, I'll transport that separate. We are working to build a garage, barn and train room. Then I'll be able to paint and fiddle all I want.
