Friday Night Steam

Something a little bit different for tonight!



Pre - War Märklin locomotive - Abandoned model train - Restoration

This is a R-910 abandoned model train produced by Märklin between 1938 and 1955. I bought it at a flea market. Each part was pretty much seized. The engine was totally blocked and I thought I couldn't bring it back to life... I spent one entire day trying to fix it. The front and rear counterweights were originally riveted then I had to make threads to fix them again. I found some pictures of old labels on the internet. Please watch till the end to see this Pre-war rusty locomotive in action !


Today's funny :o)

 H/T to Terry!


A good place to....

 ..... sit and read!

Added more peppers:

Hubby cut the lawn again:

Now that's a LOT of weeding!

Woody has been busy again - look at all the wood chips!

Next week, if the weather is sunny, we will power wash the deck and get it painted!

Woody came back too......

Remember these??

Our allowance was a quarter each week when I was a kid. My brother would take me to the candy store so I could get a new comic book. The store had racks and racks of them. It was sooo hard to choose which one to buy!




 Wish I had kept some of them!
