    I did understand. It was just seeing the photos, combined with the thought of a youthful bedroom. Which I have seen a few, (both guys and gals), that looked as though someone had tossed a hand grenade into those confines.... :eek::eek::eek:

    Looked nice in small size but looks better yet now. Nice homegrown logging equipment.

    it’s only held together with painters tape. I just repainted it since some of the paint peeled.

    Railroads sometimes need low-speed power, available with six powered axles, with somewhat reduced axle loads to handle branch lines with lighter or less well maintained rails. The amount of weight savings can be quite surprising. Other tricks of the trade include reducing sand capacity. CN did that with a number of GP9s and RS18s.

    And that's quite a nice modeling job! Very impressive.

    Unfortunately, "Public" on Facebook means "Anyone on Facebook" and not just anyone on the internet. You can limit it to a "Group" or just Facebook friends but not ever make it available to the internet as a whole.

    Thank you John for sharing with us those photos and videos from the show. It was especially great to see Bruce's TTRAK setup as I have been following his building of those for some time.

    I understand. I am also working on a PBase album that won't require a login, but I won't get that fully loaded until tonight at earliest. Here's work in progress, it's not done yet:

    I dunno... a hand grenade would at least clear out the immediate blast area. LOL

    Sat.jpg Taken last Saturday at the Livingston Model Railroad club. Ran a short mixed train that night. A combine, coach and a few freight cars. Here's the train picking up passengers. Sorry about the quality, crappy lighting.

    That cut out roof section is a neat idea!
