I used to just let the cats do it. If either of them was anywhere near the layout when it was running, I could be sure that uncoupling or derailment was quick and inevitable.
Also, check out the local San Diego Yellow Pages telephone directory under Hobby & model shops. There are several listed in northern SD County, some not too far from Cardiff.
I say real. Even in G scale, I can't imagine weeds that realistic!
Hi Larry T, and Welcome to the forums!
I have a mixture of track brands and haven't noticed any problems mixing and matching. However, being a novice in the hobby with simplicity as my major objective, I opted for battery rather than track power, so track integrity isn't a major issue...
I store my (G Scale) trains and small stuff like people and animals indoors on bookshelves. The track stays outdoors year 'round. I store the buildings and other accessories outdoors in plastic utility cabinets.
I set up my first layout at age 69. Do I get a prize?? :D
What he said ^.
I visited Kirkwood on my last trip to STL, but I surely didn't see that many trains! :)
Thanks again, fellas!
We've just installed a new computer, and don't have it (or the network)quite up and running yet. It may be a few days before I'm online regularly again. :(
Oh! How nice of you to miss me!
I'm still around --- lurking mostly. Not much going on in my railway these days, but I hope that will change before too much longer.
I'll try to be more "noticeable." :D
I'll betcha anything that SSW has a cat! (I don't buy the "real story") :D
Hey, fellas... Thanks for missing me. :) I drop by (read: "lurk") almost daily, and always enjoy "hearing" what everyone has to say.
It's very rewarding to hear such nice things about this place (and the associated forums, RRF, Steam and Essays). Bob does a great job!
(All together now...
Well, with talent like that, who needs money?
I have to ask, though.... Spray paint? Do you mean that you spray the paint onto a pallet then apply it to the painting surface?
I'm curious, and impressed. :)
GM, I think that kid's a treasure! Hang onto him as long as you can... He's priceless (as I'm sure you already know).
LGM, you need to frame that one --- you can have lots of fun with it one day. :D
Glad you're home safe and sound. Thanks for keeping us "posted." :)
But, but, but..... Where's Bossy???
