Re: Happy Christmas & New Year 2019

Happy Winter Solstice! And a Happy 2020! Five day weekend for me. Continuing with wrapping up my laundry room project. Started gutting my kitchen a couple of weekends ago for something to do in the evenings. Bachelor life for the win! :D Still working on the new version of the railway as the weather...

Re: Internet "forums" are a thing of the past

Perhaps "social" media has made inroads on forums such as this. I hang out on a motorcycle themed forum that seems to have a steady member involvement. This may be in part because of television shows dedicated to cars/bikes which brings new blood to those hobbies. Model railroading isn't a hobby tha...

Re: The Two Dogs Mining Company

I agree Don. I've been putzing on the layout a bit each evening before darkness sets in. I've begun to repurpose the brick that came down from the room demo. Using it to build a dry stack wall for the loop adjacent to the patio. IMG_19102019_173933_(800_x_600_pixel).jpg As an aside... progress on my...

Re: The Two Dogs Mining Company

Work continues on the railway. I redid the timber retaining wall. Originally had them set at 18 inches above the level of the patio. Seemed to high for some reason. Opted to lower it all down to 12 inches. That took several hours to accomplish. Afterwards I continued moving dirt, covering the concre...

I built a 10x12 shop a couple of years ago for my motorcycles with a corner reserved for my train workbench.

With the divorce in June... the entire house is now my train workshop. :lol:

Re: The Two Dogs Mining Company

Much cooler weather arrived this weekend. Today I began to wheel barrow dirt from the former layout site to the new layout... about 100 feet apart... and covering the concrete rubble before a cold drizzle started.

Re: The Two Dogs Mining Company

Thanks Philip. I'm doing as much as I can before colder weather arrives (usually late November). I should be working on my house addition but until I get around to installing the trailer hitch on my new car in order to use my trailer to bring home supplies... I figure it would be more fun working on...

Re: The Two Dogs Mining Company

Somewhat cool day here in central Oklahoma... but the humidity is a kicker as we've had two nights of rain. Any physical activity works up a sweat. But I pressed on with installing the landscape timber retaining wall. I managed about 20 feet before running out of existing timbers. Not an issue as I ...

Re: The Two Dogs Mining Company

The day started out with rain but by noon the skies had cleared enough for me to continue with work on the TDMCo. The task today was to completely remove the approximately 24 feet of concrete cinder blocks and bricks of the former exterior wall which I succeeded in accomplishing. I'll be leaving a 1...
