Nice layout photograph showing the passenger set. Every time I see this section of your layout I think about tearing part of my layout up and duplicating to some degree. Not exactly like yours. just a variation. Then I think do I really need to or want to? Probably won't do a thing. Just imagining. Layout building used to be fun. That was at least 10 years ago. Now..........

No stool yet Kenny. I am sure there is one in my future. Knees are getting better.

Yes, I am getting excited about my new E8s. Hoping for saturday delivery. Hope they will be good
running locomotives. I have always liked E8s. These might be my first E8s in any scale. So I had
to go to Youtube.

20 Years of PRR E8s - YouTube


Click on link and then on the square with open lnk.

I was out one day maybe a mile from the house and UP's redone E8s went by. Very cool. No camera with me.

Mopac did you get that rolling stool? How's the knees?

Flyernut, how did your surgery go?

Monday... I stopped my Plavex yesterday, had my Covid test today, and start my pre-surgery eye drops tomorrow..Spoke to the surgeon today, they're going to make me far-sighted, and I'll still need glasses because of a astigmatism I have. To correct the astigmatism, it will be $1000 per eye extra, not covered through insurance as it's considered cosmetic."They" said I'll see a whole lot better, no yellow tints,and things will appear nice and sharp with no halos around lights....I hope so or I'll be driving a nice 1940 Willys,lol!!!!

If your surgery goes as well as mine you well be happy. I too have a astigmatism so I still need glasses, but not as strong. In fact on a cloudy day I can drive without them. I don't make a habit of doing that but I could if needed to for some reason. Since I grew up wearing glasses, that's the first thing I grab in the morning.
