Trees and shade,, VS leaves and sticks...

Time for more of the trees to go.


Took out a fee on the Highline.



This tree has been in many a photo, time to go.
And its cheaper to fix a section of track VS hire someone.

What, was Carrie out of town? Cutting down all her trees like that. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif

Are you going to take a chainsaw and carve something in the stump? How about a duracell battery!!

You know , I had thought about carving Greg and RJ figures on the tree. Then next Battery Sept get together we can shot arrows at the track power giants. Then burn it down.

I can only dream.
You have heard of " the dark ages"

Put em on Evil Bay they'll sell, cut them into millions of little logs, they'll sell, guy has a dog door on there now the dogs going in and out made what looks to be a rendition of a religious figure on it from the dirt and scrapings, and he started it at $1000.00 and it has been bid on up to $1100 now. Like I said before people will buy anything on Evil Bay, except when I want to get a decent or fair price on something then no bids or doesn't meet reserve. have had 3 engines on there one 3 times, 1 twice, and no sale.

Now Craig, RJ would love that one.
My wife thinks I will hate myself later. But I hate the sticks and crap now. the rest of my yard grows fine w/o shade, so will this area.

Marty lives in Nebraska City. Nebraska City the home of Arbor Lodge and Arbor Day. Keep it up Marty. The Arbor Lodge Police will be comming after you. Cutting down a tree in Nebraska is like painting the statue of William Jennings Bryan on the Nebraska Capitol Lawn bright orange. That is what we did after seeing the movie Blowen In The Wind...about the Scopes Monkey Trial in Tenn. in the 20's. We got part of it painted before being scared off... That was in 1959. I think they are still looking for us.

With that tree being gone, doesn't that make room for more railroad? Many a tree has been removed for the advancement of the railroads.

Yep, you can carve RJ and me on the tree trunk. You better be sure your tools have their batteries charged though! It would be funny if you had to use track power to do it! ha ha ha!

Shoot all the arrows you want, you are having fun with battery and I'm having fun with DCC, the hobby is definitely big enough for both!

Seriously, good move on the tree, anything that tries to drop leaves on my track gets a permanent haircut --- at ground level!!!

Regards, Greg

next year we will move the time up before the shadow, other photos have been fine.

WOOW does this mean RJ may come back next year???? Bring a white truck this time.

Greg, yea the winds this last year and the trees brushing together have made it a pain.. All these trees was small 10 years ago when the RR was started.. 10 years woow, thats my oldest RR today.

Marty, you need to cut the one down just off the driveway on the SE corner of the house. It casts a shadow on the MLS photo by the bridge. If it was gone, the image would be a lot better.

Don't worry, in a couple more years Marty will have an air conditioned bio-dome over his railroad so he can run all year long, in nice, cool rain-free weather.
