Wow! I didn't realize my last post was way back on August 14th last year.

I had actually stopped working on anything while I was packing and getting everything situated for a move to a different apartment complex. Lots of packing!

The move took place last November about a week before Thanksgiving here in the US. All the time since has been filled getting settled, unpacking and trying to find places for all my stuff.

This apartment is bigger but with less real stoarage space than the last. Because of that I've spent a lot of time going through all the boxes and eliminating what I can live without. I just didn't realize that was going to be such a big deal!

I finally have my work room laid out fairly well - not the final configuration by any means - but at least OK for now. Hopefully I can get back to work on the Chisos now.

I invite everyone to pester the heck out of me so I get off my good intentions and get something done to post. Woodie already pesters me so others can now take their turn.

I really think the yard area will be next. Then I will rebuild the track/mine area I had started back when. The area I have for sections is a bit less in this apartment.

Hopefully you will have a little more room since you were nice enough to lend/lease some of your HO equipment to the Van Buren Sub.  Thank you so much.  The equipment will be put to good use (as soon as I get the car cards printed).

...and more to come. I spent a little time this weekend going through the boxes and pulled more out.

It's really a sorta funny/sad situation that I have offered a lot of stuff (gaming figures, books, 18th century reenactment gear) to people at absolutely no cost, just to know that it is going to be used and not in some landfill, and never hear anything from them or have them flatly turn me down...like I have some evil motive.

Fortunately, this is not the case with Jim and the HO equipment. The grain train looked really nice on his MoPac and is finally getting some use.

Thank YOU, Jim!

You are more than welcome.  I got more car cards printed up today so I can get these cars in service.  Between you and David, I won't need to buy another piece of rolling stock.  LOL.

Here are a couple shots of the snow around the apartment I live at. We had some really nice powder fall this past Friday. I hated brushing off the car and going into work...









We're supposed to get more this next Tuesday evening...we'll see. I could do without myself.

OK...back to the Chisos.

Here is a shot of the wall in the master bedroom of my apartment where the Chisos will be built.



The yard will be supported on the bookcase in the right hand corner and I'll use camera tripods for support. I know that works having seen Woodie's in action.

The rest of the sections will be supported the same and extend over the desk on the right where my computer is now. I hope to make room in the work room for the computer as I relocate some of my overstock of railroading and gaming stuff.

This shot shows the really nice bay window in the bedroom. I plan to let the sections extend around this nifty curve. But that's in the future...one thing at a time.




Hopefully showing the site of the crime will spur me to action...

James-you don't need that bed or anything else...just RAILROAD. When you get sleepy, the floor looks really nice. Nice digs, glad you got away from de hood and de thugs. When you get ready, Jim & I will drop by and "christen" the new layout with the required brews. Then your neighbors will believe you are a thug!

As the old lady said-"Whar's the beef?!"              Woodie

I don't know, Woodie-

With RC James could lie in the sack and operate watching the action through the telescope-------

Nice digs James!
