Nice looking cars..Mike.

I hope we can post here what is on the work bench, but has not moved to the picture side of the equation. On my hotel desk is stained basswood being ready for cutting and application to a small derelict shack that is underway.

Like the cars, Mike.

My work bench is currently a hotel desk top that contains many strips of basswood that have been weathered are will be cut to length as siding for a derelict wood shake and is not at the picture stage.

This thread is pretty open-format. If it has something to do with N, please feel free to discuss it here, with or without pics. Though pics are always a tread for any reader.

Working out of a hotel room in New Orleans, I have gotten this far with my little scratch build (N Scale). The magnifier/tweezers/light is a great help. Not the best lighting available in the room

Today is the start of the March Madness...NCAA Tournament. In celebration of this day and the fact that my school (back in the late 60's) is in the tournament (also Number 1 rated in the nation). I have taken the day off to celebrate this event and take a turn at trying to make trees using the MS stuff. This might be consideration a journey into …....., but if this is a will then there must be a way). Pictures might be forth-coming depending of the results.

Hi Carl,
Haven't watched the NCAA in years so had to look up the NCAA tournament to see who was raked #1!! LOUISVILLE about a 100 years ago my home state just north of there (Indiana) was frequently in the NCAA finals, but not for a long time now Anyway good luck to your team and good luck with the trees!! Some time ago I asked about your layout and if you had pictures!!! Haven't seen any yet

Cheers, Dave

David.....I have been involved in a legal matter that is currently being heard in the federal court in New Orleans......this has put a damper on being able to spend quality time on the hobby. When it is over, I expect to be able to return to the hobby.
----------------------
David, I did have a picture of a piece of the layout on the computer. This is an under-construction shot. Need to lighten up the green colors, clean up the ballast and finish the subs that were retro-fitted.



My school is Gongaza University. A school of approx. 4500 students. They were #1 in the Nation. Louisville was ranked #1 going into the NCAA tournament.

This was on my workbench but today I transfered it to the layout. Next is to blend it in.
