Do you remember the old Creedence Clearwater Revival song about being stuck in Lodi again? It sort of describes my frustration of having the sale of our home fall through. So we are back showing it to potential buyers. Uncertainty rules the day!
Aside from the tune’s negative suggestion that Lodi might be another “jerkwater” town in the middle of nowhere, Lodi is not that town. Creedence was not a fan of their wonderful wines and quaintness. It is now an official appellation for their wine. They produce a number of very fine Zinfandels. The SP, Central California Traction and the WP once served this little town in the Central Valley of California. There are a number of interesting industries that were once served by railroads. I have liked a number of them.
Well, I was fortunate not to have packed everything away. My tools and parts are still there for me to use while waiting for the next buyer to come along.
My previous posting showed a couple X23s done by Lee Turner. The cars arrived at their owner’s layout. They belong to Norm Buckhart of Protocraft. His layout features many custom decorated cars done by a number of modelers.
