Sherrel, are you an admin with the authority to help? I have a local friend who was an active member here a couple of years ago. She has lost her password, and has also lost the e-mail she used to open the account. If I vouch for her not being a robot can you authorize her re-admission to the group? Her user name is azdiane. Thanks. ~Dan
Ken, nice to virtually meet you! I loved seeing the Canyon Diablo custom build as its something I aspire to do in z scale. Would you be willing to share your drawings and measurements with me so I could leverage that as my basis for downscaling? Let me know and happy Thanksgiving!! Tiest
Chet- do you have any 40' to 60' flatcars you want to let go?
I am not wanting any specific road, condition or type, just something for various loads.
Drop me an email at if you want to sell some flatcars.
Sorry to hear about your mom. We had my grandfather pass away in out home and also know that the time was getting near. Still doesn't lessen the pain.
We are thinking about possibly moving back down to Florida. My wife is down in Florida now staying with an old school friend in the Villages. Don't know yet where, but she has been looking at some of the 55+ communities around Ocala.

MIcronart 1080, out of business now so I need the plans.
