Picture taken last April after major surgery and nearly four weeks in hospital:X I am reliably informed that I look much better these days, even though I'm nearly a year older:)

Well, here is me. Sir Christopher the Clown hard at work walking in a parade at a Puppeteers of America convention in Seattle in 2000. Mr. Bones is a puppet that hangs from a rod extending from my back pack. His knees and ankles are attached to my knees and ankles with long rods, so when I walk, he walks and when I run, he runs to catch me. Mr. Bones is made from papier mache'.



The kids love it.

Not yet, Wll. But I do have some circus wagons and animals. Oh yes, and a marching band.

It will take me years to collect all the stuff for a circus on my layout. :shocked:

Just so you know, that is a 3 year old picture taken before I turned grey from the severe rigors of being retired:bg:.

When are you going to grace these pages with your visage. I mean, if I don't break the camera, nobody else has to worry:cool:.

I was a little concerned about a picture with wine in it, because it is far from being politically correct. I do not think those people inhabit this board though, but if any do, the following emoticon expresses my feeling about political correctness (_!_).

As for being politically correct, I do not know of a politician that is correct.

Now the wine, at least its not a drum, and I do note that you are using a glass.

We have asked Dave not to post his picture for fear of it corrupting our computers.

Now how about you let us see some of your trains

Hi Paladin:

My trains sadly are still in their delivery boxes (from Trainworld). I have recently had eye surgery on both of my eyes (cataracts) and the recovery time is unfortunately much longer than anticipated.

Currently I have a (in On30) Shay, a Climax and a Mogul and I have also purchaesd two Heislers in HO scale to convert to On30 . I have downloaded Paul Templar's instructions on how to converrt  an HO Heisler to On30. I figured that was better than two Porters for yard work.

Attached is a photo of the status of my train room (14+ feet by 18+ feet). A former next door neighbour (and all around really good guy) has done the wiring (he's an electrician) and I'm ready for the dry wall. I will do that when my eyes are completely recovered. With a little bit of luck I will be starting construction of the Kettle Valley Railway in September. Pictures will be available for those with nothing better to do than watch a fumbling wanna be.

I must warn you that I'm really anal about my work and redo things many times over just to make it the way I want it. On the other hand, I'm not nearly as accomplished as the rest of you..........YET !

Patrick

Opps!

Actually its a 10 1/2 tonner.

Ken,

Here is what I know of it.

The text I saved with the pic reads.....

It's a ten and a half ton, 2 cylinder Shay.

It was the only engine in the Molino Timber Co.

One of only 4 engines built to this small size.

Lima plan #2203

It says it was sold to the  Loma Prieta Lumber Company in 1918 and
it was scrapped there in the 1930's.

I saved the photo so long ago I cannot remember where it came from....my best bet is I found it on that Clark Kinsey Photo site???

That would be my guess bud...If you look close between the handrails you can just make out the edge of the window frame on the door.

Really,Jason,You can see a photo? All I see is a red X in a box. I looked in the mirror and don't look anything like that. I wonder what I'm doing wrong? :bang: Thanks for letting Me know. I guess I really don't need to see it, it's just hard to know if the post worked or not if I can't see it. Thanks again!

Actually now I see a red cross.... I think webshots is the problem.. if you right click on the red cross and select properties, and then copy the web address that appears and paste it in the browser window the picture appears, and also appears when you read this thread.

Try using photobucket.com , they are pretty good and don't seem to have the problem webshots does.

OK-due to some requests, mostly to see if I look like someone they have seen on a Post Office buleitin board, here is a self-taken pix of me. Peach Head did not want to have anything to do with this photo so he ran off. Bill didn't know what I was up to either, so here 'tis...

You are nice clean shaven gentleman, Not like that scruffy bugger from Texas.

I'm as elusive on camera as Tejas goatsuckers... but here is one of me and my wife Brenda back in '05 visting my mom in Victoria, BC.



When you're as good looking as me the best place to hide out from the throngs of admiring babes is the cab of a truck. :)

OK you young whippersnappers, here's a photo of a real master at work.



Here is 87 year old Bill Caldwell AKA Mudge, Muj, and my friend. Muj is shooting photos of his new 0-4-0 Increpid along with 0-4-0 Minnie (which is 60 years old) staged on the mainline of the Mogollon Railway. All ore shipments were halted during the shoot and the "out of scale" items near the posed train were moved to a nearby junkyard. I just hope I can still be building stuff and taking photos when I am his age. We should all be so lucky!

Please tell Muj to be sure not to leave that tripod unattended. Someone in the area has been "obtaining" them, and using them to (of all things!) hold pieces of foam up out of the mud!

Strange place, that Texas---:mex::mex:

Herbie-Muj's tripod is an old job which was expensive in the day...my tripods are $14.95 jobs from Fry Electronics...When I bought 8 of the tripods, the salesman wanted to know how many cameras I had..when I told him what I was up to, he walked off laughing. I laugh every day when I go outside and run my trains. I plan to buy several more when funds appear but I will not snatch Muj's tripod..it is a "collectors' item"..

    Looks as if you should get on the corner with a cardboard sign. Just wondering if the two sticks holding up the section are some kind of new fangled high tech device. Do you lust after your neighbors tree limbs. All this is in jest because you really do have a shade tree layout. If it works run with it.

Clif-them thar sticks have since been replaced with high tech camera tripods. As I can afford them, I buy a couple of them at a time, I believe that now I have 14 and plan for maybe 4 or 5 more to get rid of the sticks.  And yes, it does do the job..I can run trains in the nice fresh air and if I need to, the entire layout can be taken apart and hauled around and then set up again. Why be on a layout tour when you can bring the layout to the show!

On the "technical" side, many modular layout builders have "3 point" supports to hold up the sections. I think that I can use the adjustable tripods in the same way. Will it last? Who knows, but I have watched the layout as 60 MPH winds and sideways rain pound down and it never moves! Of course, if a tornado hits then it's all over..but if that happens, I have more to worry about than a silly train layout!

Woodie the sticks had me thinking about where they came from. I must say I thought they were recycled broom handles left behind when the resident witch flew away

Looking through the back pages of this topic. I find many photos missing (witness protection program?) or shots of folks that we don't hear from anymore. In fact the five-YES, ONLY FIVE! that I found that post and have pictures are-

Dwaynward
Woodie
Mudge
Grywht
Dwayne
sorry if I missed anyone

One theme that seems to run through the first four pages, is that our leader, Dave's picture was missing--it still is-- along with our second in command, Don.

What's it going to take guys? Do we have to contact your wives for some embarrassing shot?

Woodie,

That photo ended up on the back of a milk carton !!!! (laughing) as far as the wonderful background. That shot was taken in the small Mining town of Black Hawk Colorado in the Fall. It has perfect scenery to model a little rundown mining town micro layout.


I'll post some pics of the town soon.

Hi all,

just uploaded two pix into the gallery to provide a face to the name and check out the new features.

First Pic shows me watching out of a class 103 electrical engine. The original picture was made on film and I took a shot with flash from it. The picture is from a nice sunny day in 2003. This engine class is no longer in regular use and there are only but a few still in existence. The engine originates from the 1970's, has 6 axles, weighs 114t (250.000lbs) works with 15kV at 16,66Hz from overhead wire and its power output was about 7.500kW (10.000 hp). Its speedlimit was 200km/h (125 mls/h).



The next shot was taken last september in Paris(France). This train has about 9600kW (12.800 hp) and it will work with different voltages and frequencies. It has a top speed of 320km/h (198mls/h) and operates in France (its origin), Germany and Switzerland.

One of those trains has run the world record of 574,8km/h (357mls/h) at 2nd April 2007.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TGV_world_speed_record





It is quite obvious that I, like many of us, use razor blades only for modeling purposes..

I came across these two oldies and thought I'd pass them along since they both concern trains.




This is a very young Boudreaux back in them olden daze.  Note the old Lionel train on the living room floor and I am running a "remote control" automobile in the middle. Also shown is a state of the art television which was only switched on in the evening to watch wrestling and Sid Ceasar.




Later years photo is me in the cab of a KATY FA loco with my buddy Mike Long in the walkway. The FA was in the dead line at the KATY shops in Bellmead, TX where we used to prowl around for hours.

I thought I'd post these and maybe stir up somebody else with the same idea.

Not top quality, but you must consider that this was taken when photography was in its infancy--most likely  a tintype
Folks that know me say that I should do this more often, because I am full of it----don't understand what they mean, but I'm sure they are just trying to be helpful

Matilda is not an 'official' Freerails member...
...& has never posted !

She does like trains though !

She's not much interested in 'mixed trains' daily...
...EXPRESSES ! is Matilda's thang.



She helps out with the modelling a bit....
...knocking over bottles of MEK...
...helps me loose 'super-detail' parts, in the shag-pile...
...& sometimes ATTACKS the odd Tamiya box or two !
( obviously not getting enough attention; WOMEN !!! )

Hi Herb

3 layers recommended .. esp. in Nevada.

The extra-wide rolls are good (covers the ears).

That economy-foil SUCKS btw...

...Top quality is an investment; & well worth the extra $0.50c !

I have decided to do a course in digital photography, I have rarely been happy with my photos. When they OK its a hit and miss arrangement.

It seems a pity that I have purchased a Nikon DSLR digital camera ( 5100)and still not getting the results I am happy with.  I think this is another extension to our wonderfull hobby.

Mainly interested in still photography but would be nice to be able to do the occasional movie. The course I have chosen is run by NIKON.

I already have a photo editing program on my computer. Nikon may suggest a more suitable course.

I understand this course will be over a few days. It is not a online course. they indicate on some occassions it is a one on one .

Not only will this hopefully improve my modelrailroad photos but can be applied to general stuff as well

Wish me luck on this new venture in this field.

I had a Beemer once--a R60/5--One of about 35 bikes in 50 years of riding.

Don

Way to go Cobber! If it is a one on one, tell the instructor specifically what kind of photography that you would like to do better. They all know a lot more than they can convey in a time-limited class, so no use wasting time on flowers and such (unless Jessie tells you differently).

And please pass on to us the high points of the session--and of course show us the results.

Loved 'em both.

Gee! I was looking for an easy way to get some supplemental income in my old age. and this is it! In addition,
i get to be famous - in a crappy sort of a way- but hey!

Now i have to get some posters made. Of course, FreeRailers get a discount!

Not quite a current shot--but ''it is what it is''
