Bulltweeet! There's a 6'6" king sized bed in this trailer and I'm 6'2" at 220 pounds of mean fightin' machine. (Ya Right) SO I don't use no stinkin' little sofa. When I snooze I snooze big time and love it. Even old Cinder comes in the house at noon when the temps hit 95 or so. She takes a nap too. AC on full blast and before ya know it I have a blanket over me. Dark in that bedroom too so it's perfect for a good PM nap.  It's great to be retired even if I wasn't ready for it. Pete

:bg:Just don't freeze in the dark dreaming of the next "freerail" topic. They will have to drag you up to Woodie's to thaw and jaw next.

I was looking at some live steamers yesterday and that looks like a lot of fun. Then I looked up the price of the engines alone and 10k won't even come close. So it's back to "S" scale. No nap today. Got a lot to do today.  Pete

My two Accucraft livesteamers cost about $425USD each. But they're just little 0-4-0's.

Hey DW. I was looking at the ones you ride on. Pretty neat little trains and some arn't so little. This one company showed a diesel that they built that was darned near full size. The owner stood right up inside the cab to operate it. Musta cost about thirty grand.

Well anyway I can dream about this stuff and it's fun watching it all on YouTube. I swear evertime I get on YT I spend hours just looking at stuff. They have everything on there. I even watched an open heart surgery and a brain operation. Pretty neat stuff and tons of trains on there too. Some nice steam stuff on there from Poland where they still use a lot of that sort of engine today.  Pete
