Tuesday Oct. 21, update

Back to the Tuesday night schedule, that is to say Sunday mornings will sporadic until May. We had a junior come back (he was at our open house) with a CN snowplow. I hooked up my engine to it and let him run around the layout. We were asked if we plowed any snow, to which I replied, "Do you see any snow on the tracks? I guess he did a good job", lol. We temporarily put up our new curtains for the show, like the green colour, good job Ralph. Bill has been the focus of a lot of good hearted ribbing about his collection of B&O equipment the best one was when a lost exacto knife was located and something was said about doing something about the B&O decals, hmmm, I can see some sort of payback in the future, all in good fun!

Sunday Oct. 19th Open House

After taking in another great Woodstock train show, we headed up to the layout to prepare for the open house. The table skirting had arrived si we scrambled to attach it before any guests arrived. We had about thirty guests in all and they all seemed pleased. As expected, we did have a few glitches and derrailments, but all in all it was a success. Thanks to all who came and thoes that helped.

Tuesday night at the Huff & Puff

Will have to come up with a newtitle for these updates. Work is being done on other days to get ready for the open houe on Oct 19th. Asection of the mainline was lifted to remove a dip and two yard tracks were instaled at the same time. Fences were installed around the junk yard, elevator, and lumber yard. A couple of new buildings were added as well as more rolling stock. Scenic details were added here and there,it's amazing how they bring the layout alive. In the middle of all this, many trains were run.
