I hope you all had an enjoyable Holiday time with family. I got back from Illinois Wednesday morning around 3:00AM. No modeling, just family stuff. Now we are in the midst of the last modeling weekend of 2011. For me, I plan to spend Christmas Part II with family in New Hampshire, however, railroading will take a large portion of time. Between snow flakes, I plan to get measurements I need for the north end of town. I have Cilleyville road down on my layout, now I need measurements for the station and everything north of this road. I also have a number for the person who runs the town historical society in the depot. I hope to get in touch with them and learn more about the town. Pan Am has painted another "tribute or heritage unit" this time a Springfield Terminal Geep 9 in all Pine Green with the single Harvest Gold stripe. An unusual choice since I only remember seeing this scheme on switchers, but worth the hunt non the less. So how about you? What are your plans for the last modeling weekend of the year? Let us know what part of the layout your working on, locomotives your painting or what railfan adventure awaits you. This time, we'll all return on Tuesday, January 3rd to see what we achieved. High Greens!
