I built 6 switches and I'm currently taking a break from that. I have 2 passenger cars I'm working on and hope to post photos soon. I just got some old Champ decals to finish the Walthers coach I bought a few months back.
My daughter came home on the 7th from her 3 year stint in Sicily, all 3 (her, son-in-law, grandson) are staying with me until they find a house.
I used to work with an Aussie, Robin Wissing, who rented an office from the place I worked back in the early 70s. He was a cool guy. Last I heard he was down in Florida. He designed/ built large sheet metal shears when I knew him.

.....Now just got to read up on how to prepare a can of beans :>
Just remember to puncture the can before you cook it. I've seen the results when someone forgot to do this - It "totalled" the pie heater in the crib room. And the smell was impressive as well. The cleaner got the hose in to clean the beans off the roof.
Another story from a another time and workplace
Unanderra in oz
Tony Walsham dropped by yesterday afternoon on his way to a garden railway meet in the Hunter Valley.
Unlike most visitors who see O scale as big, for Tony my trains are tiny.
A bit chilly sitting watching the trains outdoors as neither of us were really dressed for the occasion but at least the sun shone.
I didn't take any pictures as we soon went indoors for some warming coffee and chatted in the shed later out of the wind.
So here is one I took at an Ipswich exhibition some time ago.
It shows Ron Fox's depiction of Newcastle station in the 1950's.
Hi Bob I be happy if my station turn out well like that one very nice indeed, haven't been to the Ipswich train show for years, I used to look after their layout when they first opened Ipswich Workshop Museum while I was in the Ipswich club.
AMRA's train show next weekend wont be going, got too many appointments on this week and the following.
I have got some pics to post on the progress of my layout being busy, can't close in the bridge arches to I do the bus wiring.
Has it being cold where you are, here early morning 7 degrees warmer today, back into it tomorrow.
