    Patrick: Yes, possibly filing or grinding aw a bit of the bridge gerter will solve the problem or as you said earlier making the approach a little straighter.

    Willie: Neat trick using the Red dot. I like your card stock building, the rafters will add slot as Sherrel suggested. Sherrel:. LMAO ROTF about to the Xacto 'First Aid Accessory display' !! That's about just how it is too. Actually, I associate it more with Dremel as I've received some...

    Patrick: It sounds as though you may have a kink where the lead in track connects to the bridge track. Check to ensure it's a smooth connection, no sharp edges on the inside of the rail heads and that the rail heads have the proper gauge between them. Hope this helps

    Dave Lg&Sm: Thanks for noticing prior I found my way back to the fourms here. That maze of switches caused a real problem. The MDC Roundhouse shorty flats are rather cute and with the sides and ends you can create a variety of cars, such as low sidded gondolas or just the sides for carrying...

    I'm Sherrel:. Sorry to hear you've been having a. rough go of it. Money problems are a real PIA to say the least. Retirement requires some strict budgetting nowadays it seems. Like you said, the pendulm swings both ways. Trick is to salt away as possible and keep expenses at a minimum...

    Willie:. Ser Gutt auf der deutcher restraunt ! My German speak is very bad these days. Your pictures show up very nicely showing detail in the shadows as they should. I noticed you used a low angle on the back side to keep the window light off the lens which would have thrown the off...

    Hello rail gang. Thought I'd better stop by to see what's is going on. I've had my share of problems around my place, the sluggish septic tank was causing me fits but thankfully a fair amount of RidX along with some prior caustic soda seems to have opened things up ? I hope I'm not speaking...

    Max: Interesting pics, the shot of the box car sure looks as though it's ready to tip over, surprised it hasn't, yet there doesn't seem to be any safety measure too prevent it ? The other odd thing is there is only one truck onder it ?

    Willie: The wrought iron fence is a nice addition to the park. All you scenes are very nice. The shot with the tank car at the end of the line, will that be the end of the spur ?
