Asian beetles (those that look like Lady Bugs) but no Mosquitoes
But then it has been so windy that they would not have had time to say
howdy as they went by.  :D

Is this where I suggest that a full size outline of #11 be erected painted somewhere and the
beautiful patterns mounted in their proper locations?
It should be where it can be seen by the public and the huge amount of work appreciated.
(Buy a piece of a pattern?)
If the pattern is to be used more than once it will have to be in a climate controlled environment?
This may be something down the road but I think it would make money if it does not cost too
much to  set up.

Keith - Was thinking that as I watched "Trains & Locomotives" or "Brick Red" but that is like saying "Flesh"

Will check that again - I thought it a leettle too brown. Others too red.
Like the song says - I'll keep on searching. ;D

This may not be the best place to ask - but....
I am going to paint some large scale passenger cars,
Hunter Green seems to approximate the sides but what red is the roof color?
I think it may have been asked before but my memory is not that long-
Its but the hard drive was full that day or it leaked on the pillow soon after.

It is a Farrier's anvil - almost new condition.
Have a portable forge (coal)(12v blower) that has not been used in 40 years.
The problem it is in MN.

I will see if I can get it to NH this Summer.

Needs a piece of 3/8 plate on top for light hammering.

Does the museum have an anvil? I have one I am willing to donate (and some other stuff)
problem is getting it from here to there. ???

Don't think they used typeface - too hard to get the carside in the typewriter.
I think they use paint and a brush. Brushface? :D

Sorry I did not think about having to sign up.

The thing about Lou Sassi's SRRL is that he builds structures & vignettes that were along the RR.
And a very good photographer.

Could not MNG lift track panels from Portland and drop them in Grays?
Or is everything going to be operational before the move? Or a combination thereof.
