I need to do a better job…

…of keeping this site up to date.

There really have been a lot of things going on in my model railroading life. I have no idea why I don’t take the time to write about it. I apologize but it will likely happen again.

Last weekend Chris was the instructor at our first of hopefully many Half Nuts Model Railroaders clinics. Chris showed us how easy it is to build a turnout from scratch. We will need a part two to finish them off.

Tomorrow a bunch of us are going to Saint John to operate on and visit some layouts there. We are all looking forward to the trip, some much more than others (hope you can sleep tonight, Chris).

Our operating group has grown in the past year. Most operating sessions have 8 – 10 operators showing up and there’s potential for 2 or 3 more.

It’s been great because I’ve been able to sort out how to operate the BS&T with more than 6 operators. In the past, when we’ve had guests from “away”, I’ve struggled with how to operate the layout with more than 6. It seemed there were always issues with scheduling and traffic. Not saying we have completely eliminated issues, not by a long shot, but there is a little more “logic” to a session. HA!

Time to hit the hay – it’s going to be an early morning tomorrow…
