      Here we are again,
         The weeks go rushing by!
      On the HOn30 front I'm waiting for a number of items to arrive so I can finish up a few projects.  I've ordered a few trolley pilots for my steam dummy.  I was never that happy with the original, so we'll see how it looks with one of these.  I've also received a new NWSL motor to replace the one that is not working to well in my microace 2-6-2. Also on order is one of Nigels motors, this one for another trolley project I've got.  I'm sure I've built more 2 foot gauge trolleys than the real world ever saw!
       
      In G world I'm building two models at the same time since they go together.  I'm building "Hercules," the Mammoth cave steam dummy and it's coach.  These 2 trains are preserved at Mammoth Cave national park.  I've built them in HOn30 so you might say I'm building a model of a model.  I purchased a Bachmann coach, combine and freight carrier with the intention of cutting them up and making these 2 models plus one more.  The other is Aroostook Valley RR maintenance car #52 which is at the Seashore trolly musem in Kennebunkport, Maine.  This is the first real kit bash that I've done in G scale.  In a way its the same as HOn30, only BIGGER!
       
      So what's everyone else doin'?

        Hi Everybody, On this modelers front, I am considering the fate of my HOn30 layout. Too much frustrating work, not enough reward. Looking at Sn2. Harry
