      I am really feeling the loss of not being able to attend.  This was great last year and sounds like its growing.  We had great weather last year., at least one day.  I hope it proves true, this year.  I someone can make this event and doesn't, its their loss.  This is becoming the start of the Spring Garden Railroad Tours in the East.  I saw the expansion and improvements while we were at Ken's for the ECLSTS and they are great!

      If nothing else, they'll be a whole lot more room in the driveway......................

      But, you and Jan will be missed.

      Friday is a run what ya brung day.

       

      Reminds me of something my grandpa used to say. To paraphrase that:

      "Dance with the girl loco who brung ya."

       

      Great to meet you Ken at the D&B. I'll be there some year.

      Thanks Cliff. If it weren't for the ECLSTS, I probably wouldn't know anybody.

      It was great meeting you, too.

      Hey, no time like the present..................

      Noelle and I are definitely planning to be there again this year.  Ken's Railroad is very good and the ops are great fun. 

      We'll miss Ric & Jan for sure - hope they'll come up to Ottawa for the Invasion in July. 

      We look forward to fooling around with everyone else though.  I always love to renew the great friendships I've made among the LSC crowd. 

      I don't understand what Steve's problem is, he only lives 2,594 miles away.  I asked Google Maps - It's a 37 hour drive for Steve. 

      FYI Ken's is 8-9 hours from where we live in Toronto.  For us it's a pleasant drive through the woods and across the mountains of PA.  See ya!

      Only 37 hours?  I can do that standing on my head.  Hard to drive that way, though.  Maybe next year.

      Finally got around to making my hotel reservation. We upgraded a bit and are staying a little closer at the Clarion in Glen Mills.   Was hoping to bring my travel trailer, but it still needs some major work that I can't get done that quickly. Maybe next year Ric and I can take the entire driveway!

      Anyone going to KOPS need White Acryic sheet?

      Today I cut a bunch of 3/16" white acrylic for a new light box.  I have a bunch of drops that are headed to the dumpster. My trunk is an option too!

       

      I have 5 pieces a little over 12" wide x 48" also have 4 pieces 8.75" x 96" that I could cut shorter. I can get close to 6' in the car. Also one other 96" long piece that's probably over 6" wide.

       

      LMK here by tomorrow (Wednesday) evening so I can put in the car Thursday.
