Hi Mike, boy it's been a long time since I was on the forum... my bad. Both you and Aikenknees need to discover the joys of Phoenix sound... you'll never look back! So nice to see Canadian rolling stock on the railhead, especially plowing snow. :)

Thanks for the interest! Deep and hard pack snow has sidelined the plowing, and stopped pretty much any other activity. About the only thing I’ve been up to is researching converting my rolling stock over to metal wheels and ball bearings. Also, sound is on the wish list. I’m hoping to make it a reality. The problem is expenses in my other hobbies is slowing progress. So many wants and so little cash… :rolleyes:

Spring is coming. The snow is slowly melting, and by the forecast the track should be completely clear next week. The “first run” should be soon!

I have a couple times, but I haven't had a camera handy when I was. The weather is starting to get more stable now so I expect to be running more often. :cool:

Absolutely! I know, my post count has dropped severely. It's been a busy summer but everything is holding up well and I have been running trains from time to time. I just keep forgetting to keep a camera handy! I do have one upcoming project. My engine house hasn't been holding up too well. The wood frame is ok but the plastic wall panels aren't holding up to the weather. So, I want to build a new engine house completely out of cedar like I did the one small bridge and the tunnel ports.
