I don't mind work - in fact I like work --- I can sit and watch it all day.

The only problem maybe that what Mike is doing will be more interesting to some riders
than what is going on at the Station.

My father said "When you see machines you used starting in the trade exhibited in
a museum then you feel old."

As I said in another blog:
Mail for my neighbor across the street goes to the Central PO in Minneapolis 40 miles away
for sorting then return, so it takes days for a letter to be delivered in our small town.

Like the Postmaster doesn't know where the Museum mail goes.
But they have to play by the rules.

I remember when a picture of Alfred E. Neuman on the envelope would get
it to the offices of MAD Magazine.
Or when a girl at college wrote Grandpa & the ZIP code and it got to him
(Small MN town- she did have her return address tho.)

If you are wondering, I know you are, ZIP came in July/Aug 1963.

Tim: The package is in todays mail. :)

I am covering the mailing.

James thanks for the change - I am not where all my info is located.

Will try to get it out today.

Would like to see a picture when it is done.
Tim you could document the building and submit to Model Railroader
but they may not be taking soldering articles any more.
