Moving Forward - First Meridian Speedway Railroad to be Built
Yesterday I noticed that one of the two light bulbs in the Paint Booth had burned out rather prematurely. After opening the package I noticed that the fine print said that the bulbs should not be oriented upside-down. Perhaps that had something to do with it.
After dropping the kids off at school this morning, a quick visit to the Home Depot yielded a pair of new GE LED bulbs. Man they are nice! Great light and no heat! A bit pricy, $15 for the pair; but, given the proximity of the bulbs to where I am working, having no heat is a great thing.
Onto bigger and better things, I have decided to build a railroad in my current house. I had originally planned to wait until we moved into our next home with a bigger space by design, however, my wife is not quite ready to move yet. Some nonsense about the kids and high school and blah, blah, blah!
It has been nearly two years since I moved back to Fort Worth, TX from Lincoln, NE and I have the itch to build something. Today I evicted my kids from the spare bedroom that has become their playroom. Really superfluous as the kids live on the xBox anyway.
I have big plans for the room - my Man Cave. This will be the test bed for me to learn some modeling, scenery, and electrical skills. I spent a good portion of the day clearing out all of their stuff. It is nearly a clean palette for me to start. There will be updates coming soon!
The room is 10'X12' and will house my office with several work stations, including the paint booth. Sitting directly over the garage, the room is positioned perfectly to run an airline from the compressor. That will be tomorrow's primary task...
