Rebuild of RR

Post by R.J DeBerg » Wed May 10, 2017 11:50 am

Soon I will taking on the task of moving the RR from the ground to an elevated RR. I hope to be able to start this fall. As you all well know as we age it gets harder to bend down or kneel. The 2nd reason for raising is I have gone more in to Live Steam now and have been enjoying it more and more. This required me to RC the locos do to my layout being on the ground. I will still operate my sparkies as us LS refer them to. :D Later RJD

Well, RJ< you have a nice - hopefully fairly dry and not too hot - summer ahead of you to make your plans and possible get the lumber measured up and sawn.
I guess we will watch your progress - assuming you post the progress on one or two of the places you visit.
I am sure you will enjoy the rebuilding but expect one or two occurrences that cause you to vent your feelings. ;)

Thanks guys. Due to the way pics have to be posted here I will not do so as it's beyond my capabilities to figure out how to do. So as mentioned you can go the one of the other forums that allows easy way to post and you will be able to see my progress. Later RJD
