Bases are loaded, Top of the 9th and our star hitter is up to bat. We're on third as our star hits a fast ball into far right center, out field... It's a home run as we run into home for the weekend! Too soon for a baseball analogy? Nope, my Red Sox are in the middle of Spring Training so no reason why I can't use one! Like baseball, I love the weekends and the promise to get stuff done. Saturday: I plan to get these N scale beauties done. You may remember a few years back, I painted similar models for Galesburg RR Days. I had a customer in Chicago approach me a while back wanting to paint a Kato SD70 and a C-44 in the two schemes seen here. Yes the road numbers are appropriate to the BNSF roster and no offence to my fellow Santa Fe modelers, but the former AT&SF Dash 9 wear red again but this time Chinese Red. I keep painting these up for customers and myself hopping that Warren will get the hint, but those class 1 railroads have better things to do then listen to a custom painter. A bit more work and I hope to have them finished. I'll also work on the O-scale items too despite the lack of needed supplies that is holding me up. Sunday: I want to work on my Inglenook. I was able to get all the track down last weekend so I want to get all the feeders soldered into my bus line as well as set up the Tam Valley turn out controllers. I would also like to get the NCE DCC panel installed and maybe if it warms up enough like they say it will, replace a few ties and paint the track. If all goes well, I'll be able to run a test with a locomotive and some cars. I even have my first show set up for this mini layout at the end of April in Decatur. I also need to spend some time on the City Job modules as we are just about a month away from our first show in Urbana, Illinois. Of course, domestic duties, time with sweetie and Jess are all personal mandates that must be acted upon but enjoyed as well. So how about you? What do you have planned for this first weekend of March? Are you preparing for train shows? Track work? Maybe some scenery? Let us know, with an image or two. We'll assemble once again on Monday the 6th to see what we accomplished. Until then, have a great weekend, stay busy and safe and as always... High Greens!
