    Hi Vince!

    We are doing fine down here. I hope you are well! I’m glad to hear you are making progress. I have doing some weathering for a friend. I just finished up a GP9 in BN livery for a layout dated in 1982. I’ve slowed down just a bit. Getting ready and through the Tulsa Union Convention has me a bit modeled out. I’ll pick back up soon. We had a setback with the locomotives on the layout, SW1500 #001 seems to have died. I’m considering how I want to proceed.

    Take care buddy!

    I hope Santa was good to you Tom and Michael!
    Michael, are you going to be participating in Sound rail? I looked at the list of railroads and didn’t see the RGW, I figured you guys would be a perfect fit!

    I just found their website. Under operating layouts is Bill Messecar, he lives 5 minutes from me. I know Greg Wright, big NMRA guy. With my stance on NMRA, my exclusion is not a surprise.

    Adding another frac sand car to my fleet. This is in progress, I’m using water soluble oils, pan pastels and airbrush acrylic wash. I hope this does not trigger any SLSF fans, but it’s the only way I can have it on the modern era layout!
