Kev - Expensive pumps?

Good morning,

 Caught up on my lost sleep from yesterday. Feels good.  Sleep Smile

Roy, there is a method to my madness: This ejector pump was installed in a pit so I could put a bathroom in the basement if I wanted. Never did, so yesterday I got a Wayne WSSM40V sump pump back up combo to replace it. Could not find one anywhere but on line so I ordered one from HD. All it moves is condensate and recharge water from the softener and sand filter so it runs almost if not every day many times.  I also bought another Wayne sump pump that is the same one as in the combo kit today from Rural King so it is pumping again till the ordered pump shows up and then if the main pump craps I have a direct fit pump on the shelf. 3 years ago I grafted a Zoeller Aquanut 508 back up pump to the ejector pump.  So now with that  I am going to move that back up pump over to the sump pump pit and install it to the Zoeller sump pump in that hole and pitch the third bad ejector pump in 11 years. That will give me back up in both holes and a good pump on the shelf. Why it all cost so much to do but I should be ready for anything now. Going to run them both off the same battery. It would be seldom they would ever run at the same time. The basement flooded twice before so it was saved by the back up pump this time! Yes

Fife, we need some work done here on the cabin when you get done with your other projects. Whistling

Mike, HOT HERE AGAIN TOO!  mid 80s already with 88% humidity and dew point of 74. Ick!

Good Morning......

90ish today here in the shadow of Philly.....Sun is bright and skies are clear.....

Leaving Thursday after work for Chryslers at Carlisle, 4 days of Mopar Mania, guys weekend, yeah, all that.  I expect to be unconcious Saturday Night.....

Work is slow, just about getting my quota in everyday.  Must be the summer....

After being off last week, went 1-2 with a Fielder's Choice, a single and a walk.  Player Catcher and then 3rd base in the latter part of the game.

Line/Exec meeting tonight, I'm blowing off the County Meeting tomorrow to get softball back on track.  1st time I'll miss a meeting this year.

Check back soonest, prayers for those in need, especially Phish on the dreaded "Left Coast"....

Hello there,    

   
At the beach this week with son and his family. Daughter's crew stayed behind since she didn't feel up to it. 

She called this  AM with the news that they got all the cancer. She meets next week to discuss the continued treatment. Probably radiation alone.


Mrs n I left the track and headed to the beach  as soon as the drags were over Saturday.  Grandson took 2nd in both his classes. Tuning gave him an additional 1.5 seconds but not enough.

We arrived here at 1015 Saturday. Sunday Mrs and I went to Mass and   spent most of the day relaxing and napping. Then a couple hours in the evening at Sundaes In The Park. Music and Sundaes capped off with Fireworks over the Bay. Son and family made it here about 2AM Monday.


Ready to head to  the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen   State Park.


Later
Prayers for those in need

Hi All,

It's been a few days. I've been busy doing nothing!! Big Smile Well, my buddy came over with a chipper on Saturday and helped me deal with a large pile of brush I've had for a few years. Maybe I'll finally get the pool set up. It's "cooled" down to high 70's.

Banks - Great news!! Hopefully that's it for her.

Rich - Have fun! Do you think my Grand Caravan would qualify as a "Mopar"? I do have a K&N "high performance" filter..... Laugh

Have a good one and prayers.

Rob

Good evening all !

Made it to the museum last Friday, wasn't sure if I could make it a full day so the BetterHalf spent the day there with me. Spent Sat and part of Sun recovering.

Had an extremely pleasant day today. Had a visitor from a little ways north of us today. Shake-n-Bake had a broken choo-choo to drop off for repair then came by here for a visit. We all went out for lunch after visiting for awhile then came back to sit and shoot the bull some more. Don, greatly enjoyed the visit.

Getting a bit tired.

Night all.

P.S._Great news Banksie !

I've been working on my slot car track, I hope you don't get mad if I talk about slot cars once in awhile. They don't compete with trains.

Many guys build a table and then they change the track plan occasionally, I plan on a pernimate track. Today I ran a car for the 1st time on my track,hense this post. I did have a small temporary track on a old table I have just to see if I wanted to persue this or not.

It's still far from done but it was neat to go my track for the 1st time. I wish  posting photos here was as easy as on Facebook.

Had a slow day yesterday as had not slept well the two previous nights. Received 5 2" blind sets we special ordered from lowes. Got them all installed yesterday evening. Well, did not finish until 10 pm, but they all went in well. Look good vs the old/aging vertical cloth blinds. 3 full glass doors ans 2 windows. Have a few more to do yet, but will wait a couple weeks.

Slept 9 hours.  Unusual for me.  Walked 8+K steps per phone.  Replanted food plots at farms.  Farmer's contractor sprayed and killed.  Farmer replaced seed.  Hope it rains on them to get them going.

Daughter moving in for a few to babysit [like I did for her the other week].  Make it easier than boarding and CHEAPER.

Back in a few.  VA mountains.  Actually Roanoke and NS yards will be viewed.  Wifey will be at the pool at hotel.

Garden.  Tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and peppers.  Squirrels trying to eat apples as they are almost ripe.

Later.

Good Morning,

Been awhile, but been busy, busy, busy.

It all starts on the 4th, we took a meal over to inlaws, FIL had a choking incident, but it ended up ok.  After we left we were home for about 15 minutes, and MIL called and he fell.  So went back and ended up taking him to ER.  Finaly got out of there about 1 am.  We had planned on going to Reno on the 5th, Kay was going to spend the weekend with her best friend.  So didn't get the early start we planned on.  But went anyway.  (FIL was admitted to hosp.)  

Got to Reno, on Thurs eve, then I left Fri morning and flew back home.  Took MIL to visit FIL, then started cleaning house.  Kay and her gf were going to be driving back here on Mon..  So I watched over inlaws, and worked around here.  I received a teather I ordered from MTH, for an engine that was erratic.  Installed teather to no avail.. Then started looking for someone who would look at it.  I really didn't want to open up the engine.  Found on the MTH website a guy in San Diego!  Thought he probably knows Doug, and it is definetely closer than Va., or Co..  So called him and his price was right, etc..  So then thought rather than ship, drive down there, and go see Doug also.  Coordinated the day, and went.  Dropped the engine off, and Jim started working on it immediately.  He had it fixed in less than 10 minutes.  So I was very pleased!

Went over to Doug's, and he and his lovely wife were extremely accomodating and nice.  The visit was the highlight of my trip.  Really enjoyed visiting with them.

Kay and her gf made it in Mon. evening, and they have had a good time.  She is leaving and flying back to Reno this morning.  Kay's Dad is still in the hospital, they are talking about having him go to a rehab hosp., probably in the next day or so.  So now we are back to the sustaining and support routing.

Lots of other thing to comment on but don't want to make this too long.

Take care all, & stay healthy.

Afternoon all. Some bug got a hold of me and did me in this am. Feeling a little better now. 

Fife Layout is on hold until I do a few things. Which probably take about a year. First need to upgrade power to the house from 80 watt to 200 watt. And this is not the time of the year to do it. Need to put in a 24' x 25' pad to put metal garage on. Need to suport roof in old garage so I can knock down a wall and feel safe about it. ( to hot to do that also right now. ) But when I do run electrick out to the garage I will have A/C in there if just a big window unit at first. ( also once wall is down the garage door will come out and a wall put there. ) So in realality I'm looking probably almost 2 years before building of layout starts as I also need to put up studs, insulation, wiring, and drywall. Lots to do so little $$ to do it with lol. So this will be a little by little job.

Other train news, My collection of Tin plate keeps growing. 

Hope all have a good evening

Hi Guys,

Got the new pump combo and the install was a snap, Only problem is I needed another outlet for the charger and the power to there only has a single outlet so I had to get a two space outlet and cover. Looked all over and I don't have one.  :-( I will need one for the other side to as soon as I wire up the battery system on that side. I set the Zoeller set up in that hole but I need to drop the pump down about 2" to clear the lid. So I got to get a thinner block for that side.


Well I got everything I needed from Brain and finished the ejector hole just now, I will do the other side tomorrow.

Enough for today. Beer Thirty!

 Hello there,   

Thanks again for all your prayers

Started this last night and crashed .    
No fish at the pier Tuesday but the grandaughters and I walked in the bay. The water is warm and shallow. A hundred yards from shore was just past my waist. Lifeguards were busy on the sea side from the storm off the coast.

Wednesday Mrs and I made a quick invasion of NJ. Slipped into Cape May by way of the Cape May/Lewes ferry. Went to Mass at the beautiful Star Of The Sea church then strolled the streets before escaping back to Delaware to finish the day relaxing.

Today after a late start Mrs and I picniced on the bay at Assateague Island National Park. Bought a lifetime pass good at all National parks for  $80.

I'd thought about going to Toy Town but there wasn't enough time when we left. A hot tub soak and a shower finished the day. 

Charlie. ....congas to Lucas and good luck at the Trap Shoot. Bet there's no coverage of that on a National level.   

I asked about the HG because Dad worked on a farm from 46 till 54  an Used them exclusively. They were popular in this area because of farming on hillsides.                                          my uncle had one when I was a kid. His older brother bought it new with his mustering out money when he came back to the farm (Paps) at the end of   WW2. It stayed  there when he  married and moved on. Pap sold the farm to his youngest son in 57 and built a house on the farm Dad bought.  It was still there into the 60s. I ran it a few times hauling manure and other things. There was also an Oliver Super 55 like the one we have now. BIL bought one in 81 or 82. We put all new axles and bushings in the rollers and new bushings in the  trunnions on the track frames. When we got into the engine the crank bearings  were already ground to the minimum and in bad  shape .We lucked into a fork truck engine that was identical and rebuilt it. BIL still uses  to plow snow, bush hog and plant food plots.  

Best get moving .                  

Prayers for those in need

Easy day planned again for the day. Gotta beat the heat!

Good morning all, "The report of my death has been highly exagerated" Mark Twain.  Same thing happened to me a couple of days ago.  A retired railroad friend posted on facebook that I had passed away and died of a heart attack.  I started reading all kinds of condolences but headed it off with a post of my own before I started getting flowers.  The guy who posted it said he heard it from the union rep. who is usually a reliable source.  I sent him a personal message but have not heard from him yet.

I came across an engine that I never had lately.  A non toy train guy sold me a 6222 O27 version of the bell ringing Lionel switch engine from 1949 in Santa Fe lettering for $50.  It needed some work and has a few missing details which I hope I can get from the parts dealer.  It needs a radio antenna, Bell and two small hand rails for the front by the steps.  Our club president at TTOS repaired the engine for me while I waited last Sunday.  The motor was seized up.  He took the top off of the motor and spun the shaft in an electric drill which broke it loose.  He also went through the E unit reverser and checked that out.  I was running it this morning and it runs great.  The price on those things is all over the place.  Some on Ebay were going for over $200 in the original box.  Mine is in fair condition but the decals are good.  I'm happy with it.

Don, glad you saw Doug and got your engine fixed in Sandy Eggo.  I would like to get the info about that repair guy for MTH that you found down there.

Got an invite to go to a jazz concert in orange county Sunday with my friend Larry who will be filling in for the regular drummer.  I will ride down there with him.

I think I mentioned that I got a lot of free CD's and LP's from the last one.  Life is good this week.  Have a nice weekend.

Back from Roanoke VA.  Saw lots of trains.  Saw a Virginian heritage unit behind NS engines headed west.  Was talking to Don Baker when it came through.  Did get to meet a guy and his son from neighboring town here.  They were photoing trains as they passed.

Visited the O. Winston Link museum for the 4th time.

Tired.  Off to bed.

Good evening all, another hot day here in paradise.

Don B.  Hope your in laws are doing better.  That sounds like a scary situation you mentioned on your last post.

Actually ran some trains on my layout this morning before it got too hot.  Cleaned the track with a track cleaning car I bought at a train meet some time ago.  It's just a Lionel gondola car with a slide shoe underneath to witch you attach a soft pad like Velcro and soak it with denatured alcohol.  It works most of the time but once in a while snags a switch or something.  My engines had less arching after I cleaned the track.

Went out to breakfast this morning with my train buddies.  One of them just came back after having knee surgery replacement.  He is walking after only two weeks.

Not much else going on here.  Just trying to survive the summer.

Morning All!,

Not much on the go today, just the usual Saturday domestic duties. Calling for thunderstorms on and off, so that will determine what gets done.

Rich - I'll have the Caravan ready for the next Carlisle event!! Laugh

Don - Glad you were able to get locomotive repaired and have a visit with Doug. San Diego is nice. When the Mrs. and I were in Cali a few years ago, we took the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner from Anaheim to San Diego. A great side trip. I took as many photos of the old Santa Fe station as I did the Midway!!

Roy - Wine cruises, nice!!

Kev - Glad the pump is fixed.

Banks - Sounds like a nice vacation.

Ray - Nice to hear you are still with us!! I'm sure that was a little surreal.

Have a good one and prayers.

Now to finish this post [cursur would not come back, love this software].

CSX with Harrison legacy will go backrupt and be sold to a Canadian line.  His plan all along.  Then that line will have a corridor to FL.  My 2 cents worth.

Saw lots of CSX engines in NS shop being painted NS.

Here is a NS engine bottom part and nose green. ????

Morning,

WOW just got up!!!!!!!  Sleep

Lotsa rain over night. So it will be sticky today. Don't know what is going on yet.

Pump jobs are: Finished!!!   Hit the LOTO at Farm and Fleet. They hit you $10.00 core on a battery so I took three of the grand kid's old toy rider batteries hoping it would count as one car size battery, The dumb kid gave me $30.00 credit towards the new deep Cycle battery I got. So got off cheap. Hope I am good for a few years now. And I have a new spare pump on the shelf.

There has been lots of field spraying going on around here. Those pilots sure are good flyers. Corn is 8' to 9' high most places. Must have bugs!

When I went to Menards the other morning lots of planes were coming and going from the Morris airport where they get nursed and fueled.

Chief, CSX must of sold that engine, I see that a lot at a short line railroad called  Illinois Railway here that has engines from all kinds of railroads and all they do is put their name on the side, No paint job.

Here is a list of their engines and where they got them.

Hey Chief, those are all leasers from Progress Rail. I've seen a lot of ex-CSX locomotives lately too. I've seen similar ex-CSX Dash-8's and 9's with GE leasing painted over too. I think the late HH maybe "thinned the herd" too much. They're hurting for power now.

Cloudy, close to 90 again today.

No rain this month at all. The guesser's are saying maybe some this weekend. Maybe.

We just returned from a few days away along the Lake Huron shoreline in the northern part of lower Michigan. The weather was perfect. We did a couple casino visits, yea I lost. A whole twelve dollars, wife about the same but we had 2 afternoons of fun. Also took a paddle boat ride. For $10.00 each we got a 2 hour ride.

Good evening all,

Quiet day at work Friday.  Came home and mowed the yard.  Did it on one tank.  Some parts did not need mowing.  Was going to post but was too tired and went to bed at 10:30.  Did a little weed spraying today and then "coached" alums to 3-0 win over varsity!!!   Foyt team finally got a car in top 12 in qualifying on a road course this year with Leist starting 12th.  Kanaan starts 15th.  I think France will win tomorrow but Croatia could surprise.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Keep on training,

Morning all. Calling for a sunny day here hot and humid, at 90% presently.  

Hope to move some furniture around today in this tiny room enough so I can cut some 2" x 4" to level this room some and maybe get at least one sheet of 23/32 plywood down. The house is 78 years old and has settled some in the middle, from not putting supports properly in place. So it dips about 4" in the center. I have a quote from a company to come out and re-support it, but they say they can't return it back to where it originally was, but guarantee it won't sink any more. I can live with it in the rest of the house but in here I have my desk and the chair wants to roll away from the desk.

Talk to you all later.
