(VERY) EARLY MORNING PROGRESS…

Couldn’t sleep—what a shame–

Had playtime to reclaim…

Three or more tries

Under night skies,

But with a clearer brain!

He completed reconnecting

Both spur and runaround track connecting….

All rail joiners fit

He was done with it,

Couldn’t test with the power pack defecting!

Musical power packs,

Changing over to  power tracks…

When he’s done

both layouts’ll run,

He’ll go on to more creative acts!

FOOT SORE

FOOT SORE

 

Little plastic ties on the floor,

‘Though I don’t lay track anymore…

Little railroad ties

Make me realize

It doesn’t take much for a sore.

UNDER OUR TREE

UNDER OUR TREE

 

My loving wife reminded me

She wanted a train under tree…

Last year I had worked

For that very perk,

So maybe this year it will be.

I got the circular table

To lay the track on, if able…

The curve will be tight

By Christmas night,

We’ll have the train run by the stable!

A YOUTUBE EXPERIENCE

A YOU-TUBE EXPERIENCE

 

I changed to watching YouTube,

A break from blogging, dude…

This model railroad

Construction film showed,

A creative great attitude.

By classical music and jazz,

He’s working with friends that he has…

To his design,

A definite sign

That modeling’s an enjoyable task.

His wife got in the show,

Being an asset who knows…

How to please her man

Doing what she can

To help the railroad grow.

Its inspiration’s Canadian,

And the building is circadian…

Fifteen feet of track every day,

Nine film parts, by the way,

He’s built a fine model train stadium!
