Sunday Photo Fun - 10/29/23
Posted by fifedog on Sunday, October 29, 2023 7:16 AM

Boo y'all! Here's this year's Spooky Special. New additions this year are the Lionel flashing pumpkin flat car, and the Dept 56 Frankenstein water tower.

I added a strand of LED spider lights to the water tower.

The Pillager and the Jolly Roger square off in the Potomac's North Branch.

Isn't it sad when pirates can't get along?  

Great displays Fife!  And that Frankenstein water tower's a gas!

They look like the Aurora models from the 1960s!  

I built the Dracula, my brother did Frankenstein.

Yes, I had the whole set of Aurora monsters when I was a kid. My first model building efforts, learning the skills. None of those have survived; these are replacements. The Phantom from '67, Frank from '83.

Thanks!  Big Smile

My neighbor's daughter and I got the tree about half decorated this evening.  I also did some work on the wiring of the accessories earlier today.  The KW just couldn't handle all the lamps and accessory motors along with the O Gauge train.  So I took the 125 whistle shack, 394 rotary beacon, Esso gas station, aircraft pylon and rotating radar tower off of the 14 volt grid and connected them instead to the 16 volt taps on my Type R transformer.  Now they run better and hopefully my street lamps and house lights will be brighter.  (I had brighter lights on the left side of the layout previously.)

Lots to do before Thanksgiving!  Wink
