Saturday dawned cold and wet for the annual NEREX Snowflake Run. Thirty-six motorcars departed Delta Drive in Concord bound for Lincoln, NH along the New England Southern, Winnipesaukee Scenic, and Hobo Railroads. The rain waxed and waned throughout the day. Temperatures reached a balmy high of 54 degrees. We all reached Lincoln safely before dusk,Continue reading “2018.11.06 #NaBloPoMo”
I spotted this beauty on the way home Sunday afternoon. While it looks wonderful, I don’t imagine it’s very fun at modern highway speeds. It got me thinking about what it would be like to tow with our 1965 GMC though. (Don’t worry hon, just a thought exercise.)
I spent the weekend on the rails with friends. Saturday was wet & windy, but Sunday was much nicer. The motorcar ran well. It was a good end to the season.
Long day. New bed.

I had a great post planned for tonight, but then life intervened. I’ve been entertaining relatives from out of town, cleaning the attic, and eBaying stuff. A quality post needs more time and energy than I have this evening. NaBloPoMo has run for 29 of 30 days, so this placeholder will have to do forContinue reading “Ducking my responsibilities”
Cleaning the garage is easy. It can be heavy work, but there are only two questions to answer. 1. Is it useful? 2. Will it be useful in the quantifiable future? If the answer is ‘no’ to both, then out it goes. Attics are a lot tougher. Attics are full of memories and emotions. ChildhoodContinue reading “The attic”

Today I attended the local Tour de Chooch with a friend. TDC is a free, annual, self-guided event where owners of some fabulous model railroads open them for visitation. I saw some simply wonderful things and was inspired. The reality, however, is that I have neither the time nor the willpower to build a basementContinue reading “Inspiration”
