Hello All,

I whipped this up last Saturday. It started snowing an hour or 2 after I got it running. Got it on the same timer as the lights. The neighbors still can't understand how I could be playing with electricity and moisture at the same time and come out all right. As a matter of fact I don't get it either, but it seems to be working. The embankments are just mulch with a brick hidden every so often between the ground and the track.


PS - Thanks for the photo posting help Steve C.

Awesome Steve! That's almost a postcard picture!

myself I'd never put my trains that close to teh road. The plow truck would decimate them as they went by. I'll get snow thrown 10 feet into my yard on average from the plow truck. You can tell I've considered this right?

By the sound of it Chas you have, and by the location I can only imagine how much snow you get. I've seen where people have to get in to their house from the second floor window if you're in the lake snow belt.

No we are not that bad. It's is said we get over 60 inches locally and we are "just" outside the major snow belt. 5 to 10 miles away they get a LOT more snow than we do and other parts of NY and PA get a lot more. Geographically we are "in the heart of the enchanted mountains" which protects us from a lot of weather. 12 hours ago we had absolutely no snow on the ground from the over a foot we had a few weeks ago. This morning we had about 4 inches locally. I remember visiting my relative in the southtowns of Bufalo during the blizzard of 77 and sledding from the hayloft of the barn. Pretty dramatic memories of LOTS of snow. Amounts not seen since actually.

Looks good except for those overpriced bridges................. Needs the trademark Mopar in the background. What are you trying to do shock your mailman with 110 volts? I see you hammed it up in Lewis's new DVD. You better start looking for a talent agent when people realize your awesome acting ability!

Sigh...

Makes me feel nostalgic--until the furnace kicks in to remind that that it's cold outside and unacceptable for a weather weenie like me. Enjoy your snow, though.

Now Look Gary!

The reason they are overpriced is because of the "trademark Mopar". Do you have any idea how much it costs to maintain such a fine classic automobile such as that Mopar (aka MAYHEM)? Well it takes plenty of money to keep in good enough shape to be able to do all the stunts demanded of it! For Example...


Outdoor Living




and:

A SUV for the Kids




and:

Another load of the aforementioned bridges on their way to the ECLSTS





and:

Or Best Offer....



and this is our Mail Woman and nothing would shock her at this point!

Ahh, I miss my DJ5. Sold it when my wife quit the USPS, and I've missed it ever since. Cheap, indestructible, and even kinda fun to drive. Great blasting around in the summer with the doors open. And it had much more personality than those stupid vans they drive now.
