    Checklists for layout planning

    Actually I don't do shipping and receiving stuff if you mean for trucks. That is why I didn't include it. As for finding it I suppose I could if I looked for it. However I only put up things that I have done, not what others have done as I do not want to get into a copyright battle with anyone...

    Strange request

    Ok well just thought you might want to know that someone nearby gave me a sony camcorder. I was hoping it would be a model RR but it was not to be. Anyhow, as soon as I can afford tapes [or get some for free? ] I will be shooting video tutorials if any one is interested.

    Strange request

    As some of you may or may not know, I am making tutorials on my website. What my request is is this. If anyone has an old cam corder they don't want, I would appreciate it so I can make videos of what I am doing and post them for others. It can even be as old as one of those old VHS camcorder...

    What brand of track and why?

    I make my own stub switches so I don't have problems with points LOL. As for rail, I am currently using code 83 because it was on sale from $1.80 per rail to 20 cents per rail if I took the last 150 rails off of this stores hands. They hadn't sold any for a loooong time. I lay my own track and...

    I redid the site, opinions please

    I use irfanview [link on my site under computer stuff] to do any resizing. I keep the original always and rename the new pic by adding the word small to it. I hope that helps.

    I redid the site, opinions please

    Gandy I asked the 'boss' about a curtain but she said no soooo. :) I had to go with this idea also because we have a white table we both use for crafts and stuff that slides underneath the layout.
