The ICG's Aberdeen District

This spring has been a real bear. I'm working 40 hours a week, taking two Ph.D.-level classes in Mechanical Engineering, preparing for my Ph.D. qualifying exams and teaching a college Sunday School class. Add in the fact that I'm a sports fan and I've not found much time for model railroading or even blogging about model railroading.

What I have found is a friend who is building a large layout in an upstairs room of his new house. The room (20' x 50') was designed for the model railroad: a model railroader's dream!! I've offered my help in building the layout and he's taken me up on the deal. It's been a fantastic experience to spend an evening sawing and nailing and figuring out how to support the layout. Beats the heck out of convective heat transfer!

Here's a link to the layout's website:

Until next time...(probably May)...
