  1. Pretty cool Scott! Finally off for my 3 day holiday weekend. I am done with my shopping. So after I get some sleep I can get to work done on the layout. I talked to my electrician the other day and if he shows up we will have lights on Monday. Also I received a $100.00 gift card to the Train shoppe from a guy I work with. His 3 boys pooled their money and made me their Christmas project. I was touched and very surprised. I will probably be at the store at 10 am when randy opens tomorrow...... Thayne.
