    We must have all hung up our cameras for the balance of the summer. I seem to have little tolerance these days for sitting in the heat and watching creosote bubble from crossties waiting for something to happen. Did get a new hopper car for the model railroad. Nikon's 18-55mm kit lens does amazingly well in many applications, even close ups. This car is only 2-1/4" (57mm) long.

    Not much visible progress yet. I'm still working on my control panel, messing around with LEDs and circuitry. It's been many decades since I've had the time to play around with electronics and I'm really enjoying the experimentation. The control panel case is all scrap oak from my late father's stash and the hinged panels are of black laminate backed with 1/8" plywood. The power pack/throttle will sit in the center, with block controls to the left and turnout controls on the right.

    Thanks guys. I use my router table as a poor man's jointer and after enough passes, I can make my Dad's old lumber good and straight. I made a test panel as seen below to experiment with LED brightness, testing various resistor values to create a level of illumination that isn't blinding and that's consistent across the colors. It's a work in progress.

    Boy, I miss Radio Shack. I used to be able to run to the store and what I needed, but now all must be mail ordered and as I discover and experiment, the shipping charges are killing me.

    Must cost a fortune if they are shipping by rail. Maybe you can pay in HO scale money?

    YES -- that's the solution. Or maybe if I assemble a 60 Ton parts order, the carload freight cost will be less.

    Caught stacker NS 211 (Croxton, NJ => Atlanta) at Crosswell, SC yesterday. The Engineer gave my wife and I a happy toot on the whistle. That UP unit could use a serious bath.

    Nice catch Sandpatch. UP on the point to boot, looks good even if it needs a wash.
