    Happy Independence Day!

    It's hard to believe we're already halfway thru the year, but that's where we are.

    I do apologize for writing this a bit late -- hopefully by now, everyone who celebrates the day has had a chance grab a burger or brat at a cookout, and is getting ready to sit back and watch for some fireworks either tonight or in the coming days.

    Listening from my home office, the celebrating started in our neighborhood last night and hasn't stopped....

    by eric

    The folks at TrainSimulations.Net have another great rolling stock set for us....

    This set offers the standard Pacific Car and Foundry 57' car that was in widespread use from the 1960's to the 1990's. A few still remain in service today...

    Locomotive Packs from DieselsWest
    by eric

    I'm happy to announce all four packs produced for the West Colton route by DieselsWest are now available for purchase in our storefront.

    These packs are essential for anyone who owns the West Colton route, and I have to say, look pretty darn good on the Shasta as well.

    Also available from DieselsWest is their Burlington Northern U30C setalso available. If you're a fan of late Second Generation GE power, you'll want to check this set out.

    Where has the year gone? Here we are almost in the month of June, my granddaughter is out of school again, and my wife's tomato patch looks to be off to a good start. Still waiting for the cicadas to hatch up in our neck of the woods, but I can't say I'm too concerned if they don't manage to show up. They're ugly and the dogs will probably be a bit freaked out...
