      Bob please backchannel me with your address and ph #.  I'm hoping Noelle and I can get down to yours for the 27th after we get back from Ireland on the 25th.  Kind of a Marathon, but it'll help make up for missing Fr. Freddy's this year. 

      The things we do for love....

      I don't think Ill make it out there this year. I still don't have a working locomotive, and it'll be my first full weekend off. 

      At the very least, I hope to meet many of you at the ARS Model Railroad show in January??

      John,

       

      Do not let the lack of a working loco stop you. there will be plenty there, and we generally work as two man crews. come and enjoy the experience. not everybody that comes to this event goes to the Amherst Show, as many are coming from a distance to attend.

      And an update on the RR.

       

      I'm a bit behind on this year's bad track replacement, but this and next weekend I'm going to do as much needed maintenance I can and replace the obviously bad track and switches.  The big garden project, replacing the step-over in the middle of the garden, is well under way and I should have it finished this weekend.

       

      On the JMRI side of things, I had to reset the sidings at Pearce.  Last year, some of you might remember, *no* trains switched Pearce because of some issue with siding lengths, and the way JMRI decide how to pick up and set out cars.  So I manually removed all cars from Pearce, and then generated a few switch lists to get things moving again.  I like JMRI, but there are some really stupid issues with odd train builds, and sidings becoming 'stuck' like Pearce did.  Some form of car cards are looking better and better...
