Thank you Mark.  I was checking out your website.  Some great modeling you're doing down thereYes All those elevations on the middle past, Wow! and I saw you have a creeper.

I didn't notice too many areas you need it on your current modeling.  Those things come in handy though, I seen my friend Gary using his.  That big yard looks like it's going to be fun.

GOT THE BRIDGE DONE!

That is an A+ awesome looking bridge.

You should be very proud of the results from your effort.

I built this one in N scale back in 1992. I still have not recharged enough to attempt another one!

LaughLaughLaughLaugh

Popcorn, whisky and the Captain for the timber bridge project indeed!  That's funny stuff BrentLaugh

Between the glue and the shots on the table I hope we wouldn't get them confusedIndifferent

Just got back a bit ago from taking Judy out for a dinner and dessert thing.

Rich I'm glad you're showing up with the other bottle of whiskey cuz I heard it's best to sample the one with the (E) second.  Brent's whisky the (e) is silent, so that's the one you want to sample first.  That could be the one that gets youIndifferentLaughWhistling

Thank you Kevin.  That Trestle you did is really something.  Great job!  Man that has to be a lot of sticks in that bridge.  All that work around the house you've been doing has been looking great tooYes

 

P.S.  if you don't mind me asking, how long did that bridge take you?
