I've been working very diligently on some very enjoyable railroad projects but have not felt motivated to take any photos. I know everyone says it is easy to work with photos and import them from other sites but I feel like I am gradually being beaten down by technology. I still can't get off my butt and just do it.

That's our loss. You and John along with two or three others have the best railroads I have seen. I have a soft spot for PRR and NW. The last two steamers I saw in the mid-50s were PRR and NW.

I am horrible about this modern stuff - and I have programmed complex stuff in Fortran, Basic, Assembly, and machine languages. But Shutterfly is truly trivial - lots easier than the old Photobucket.

I certainly hope so.....

I have periods where I can barely go into my shop........and then those for no apparent reason wear off; takes weeks usually. Miserable time, too.

Excellent underbody weathering. Looks a lot like a 1943 Taylorcraft wing I am fooling with.

Actually derived from a SR&RL 2' gauge car.
