A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water. Carl Reiner

2+ feet of snow here in NJ.  Where's Heat Miser when you need him.  Well when you are snowed in what do you do?  Write a long overdue blog post that's what you do!  So here is a few shots of various projects happening on the Ma & Pa:

Progress on my kitbash of Mitzel Bros. Coal in York.  Some detail work, weathering, plus another small building (warehouse on the siding) needs completing.

Work is progressing slowly on number 61.  Finally found some brass mesh material to represent the radiator screen.  

Inspired by my friend Dick Bradley's work appearing in RMC I'm working on my versions of 2003, 2005, and 2006.  2006 is a brass PRR ND cabin and will be painted to represent the Ma & Pa version.

Now this winter public service announcement from Fran Zappa:
