First up, some fab news---the August 2021 Update for Family Garden Trains is now online.
Update for August, 2021
Our trip to attend the National Garden Railway Convention in
Nashville was only one of several we made this spring. So we got in a
lot of travel and family time, and then I got started on more upgrades
to my railroad.
Tasks I've been working on include framing two short tunnels to add interest to two small loops I added this spring. I framed in "boxes," then dirtscaped over them. Then I dirtscaped around them so it didn't necessarily look like mountains were springing up out of nowhere. Finally, I set out most of my model buildings for a train club visit in early August.
Though the railroad is starting to look more like we've envisioned it, we still hope to be a little farther along by an open railroad in October, as well as a Christmas-themed open railroad in November, part of an annual tradition on our railroad.

THE RESTORATION FILES! PETE OEHMEN IS ALWAYS FULL OF SURPRISES---HE SAYS: Finally, I've finished the late 1940's early 1950's large church doors and/or windows. My good friend that supplied these to me in the past is always hardworking and growing his business and is short of time understandably so. I had to learn how to silk screen, had to over come the learning curve. They are now available for anyone that wishes to refurbish their vintage church.
