First topic message reminder :

i am also still looking for some more cylindrical grain hoppers, and also anything of interest in the way of model buildings and track-side scenery, so feel free to offer some up if you have any laying about or know how to come about them

paid a visit tonight, but still NOTHING in the landscaping department, definatley going to a long and boring summer, even with my work and the community bike shop and a buddy's flea market stall Sad because with no landscaping, it means no operating for me all summer, AGAIN!

still spring, so the visits are continuing, but very sporadically, as the landscaping has STILL not commenced, so it means a another long and boring summer, for a second year straight, even with my bicycle work, and lake trip in August SadSad

Well you could visit your #train_set and start putting landscaping up. It isn't that hard I reckon.

I also would love if you posted the #videos of your to #youtube as they both came out great (yes everyone, I have seen them). Wink

well, the one was done with a green screen, but they did turn out well. and i still don;t know if i will be allowed to put up any landscaping, because my dad wants to be the one to do everything with that, so it's ether i go and stare at a skeleton, which i am SICK of seeing, or i sit at home and keep waiting for him to get his Ass in gear on it. even if it means i sit out for another year straight.

I have to admit that I'm not too happy at present, due to some of 1mtvfan's recent posts but I'll try and ignore them for the sake of not creating strife. Anyway, I have managed to visit the setup in the past week or so but there's been some minor electrical issues. These have been sorted out now though, and most trains are operating as normally as possible.

What is one of the couplers on one of your train cars broken or something?

Well this is all very interesting. I am wondering if it still has to do with the train set Smile

at this rate it looks the new shim test wont happen until fall or winter at the earliest, if at all, because there has still been NO landscaping work to commence yet, so it means i sit out on running sessions for yet another summer, making me miserable for 2 years straight. Sad

I paid a visit to the setup yesterday, and things were working reasonably well. I wasn't able to do exactly what I wanted due to a personnel shortage but such is commonplace now...

update, was able to get down to the set and test the new shim, which has worked to some degree, but more testing is in order as there are still some issues to sort out, was also able to get two new containers down there as well, but the further testing will have to wait as the builder is continuing to drag his god damn feet on the landscaping issue, so it means my summer is again wrecked for yet another year.
