It's taken awhile to get back to "the room" but I finally did.
   The walls and ceiling have their drywall hung.   I got all the sheet rock up and
now it's time to tape and mud the room.    Not looking forward to this.
 I can do it, I've done it many times in the past, but I'm not the best
drywall finisher around.   The best is my friend capt Mac (John McKenzie) of
McKenzie Brothers Timber Co in Vacaville CA
 http://www.mckenziebrotherstimberco.com/
But we live a thousand miles apart now. (my fault I moved)
Any way here's the progress photos of the drywall.

Hi Ric,

No pictures yet; I'm expecting pictures of the assembled model in 3-4 weeks. I can tell you that it will have a floor, wall framing, and roof rafters. I can send a picture, or pictures, as soon as I get them.

Re: BS K-27's for Sale

Mark Lewis
 

Lanny:

I may be interested in your next group of first run K27's, especially if you have a #463 available and it has not had the "smoothing motor" issue.
Also, I was going to email you about your previous long list of Blackstone rolling stock, as I am finally able to purchase some, if available. I have a copy of the list, dated 7/2/19, that you had sent me.

Awaiting your reply,

Mark Lewis

You can do it here in Central AZ ,Dewey, but it's only 45 degrees so it will take awhile.
Nice bright sun though.

Great, you're doing this while we're at about 7 degrees and snowing on the eastern plains of Colorado.  Can't bake anything in that. :o(
