    Hi Joe,

    Wish you had let me know you were coming! I’d bet they had been sent to Ash Grove with cement.

    I have not seen much grain action at the port. I know things have been pretty quiet since the floods and barge removal down at Webber’s Falls. It’s been a pretty dramatic year around here. I’ll be glad when things normalize again!

    How are thing coming together towards your new home? Well I hope!

    Dale, we decided not to buy a mobile home from the dealer we working with, they wanted too much money for a down payment. Tomorrow we are going to look at a few other dealers. There are several on E. Admiral Blvd near the traffic circle and just east of there. If nothing pans out we are going to stay in our two bedroom apartment, we like our neighbors and the apartment is okay just small, about 950 sqft.

    Sorry to hear that Joe. I hope you find something that works for you. Have you looked in Catoosa?

    How you doing Dale? Any recent work to the port (your version)? Has the port (real one) gotten back to normal since the flooding? Seems I read somewhere the traffic is down a bit. But that is all over, traffic being down that is..

    Dale, thank you, we haven't been to Catoosa yet. Do you know where a mobile home dealer is in Catoosa? I can google it if I need to.

    Hi Tom,

    I actually answered your question over on TrainBoard.com. Sorry! I got my boards mixed up!
    I have not been able to spend a lot of time on the layout this summer except in starts and stops. I did extend the passing track on the east side of the layout. It will now hold a complete train of 10 cars. It is now the interchange track for SKOL. In doing so, I took out the Vertigris River bridge. But I needed the track even more for operations.

    I have started the work to paint Locomotive #555 in the Port of Catoosa livery. I’ll post the pictures here as well.
    Now that fall is here, I can start getting more things done again. I am hosting another meet operations session in March and that will get me motivated to do more work!

    As near as I can tell, movement into the port still seems slow. I have not seen SKOL in there in a while. I did notice this evening that BNSF had a string of grain hoppers on their interchange tracks. Maybe things are going to pick back up.

    That’s all for now. I will post the pictures next.
    Thanks,
    Dale

    Joe,

    I am not aware of any dealers in Catoosa, however when the club was searching for a home we did look at some property over there. The prices did not seem too bad. If you are thinking of buying, you might consider Catoosa.

    Thanks,
    Dale

    Dale, thank you, we will give it a try tomorrow. I googled mobile home dealer in Catoosa and found one on E. Admiral south of town. Will let you know what we find.
