RGS - Why should any company be directed to follow the dictates of the NMRA when producing equipment and why did we have USRA? Standardization.Why not industry standard designations when describing equipment?

That's why I like the pre-1900 stuff. Just because it's different and the variety. The modern stuff I can see anytime.

While I didn't know him, I visited his site many times. I'm sorry to hear that.

Any HO passenger car will work if your curve radius is not too small and if the couplers are the same. A newer passenger car with an old loco will look weird, but it's your layout so go for it.
The older sets have horn hook couplers. Depends on how old your set is.

That's really cool. I wasn't aware of the parts catalog, either.
Great for kit bashers. Build your own loco.

Mike - No problems here. We just have different views on things.

Army/combat boots - Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck used the phrase in cartoons.
Poor women used to strip battlefield corpses for their clothes and boots.
The government used to give poor people surplus Army boots.
"Your mother wears Army boots" was the title of an Odd Couple TV episode.
"Rosy the Riveter" wore boots.
Granny Clampett wore boots.

Doesn't intimidate me. Just having fun with it.
Maybe Bachmann should take the faces off the Thomas line so they don't look like toy trains. Smiley
My wife does wear Army boots, being an Army veteran.

My thoughts were that it seems harder to get a straight edge with bead board since the little beads tend to "fall" off.
I've never used power tools when working with foam - Just a variety of drywall tools, knives, spoons, rasps, saw blades, cheese graters, etc.
I like the idea of using Windex. Never heard of that.

Jim - After re-reading your post, why would you want to use bead board instead of pink or blue board? Bead board is so messy.
912  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: scenery ideas for a small layout? on: March 04, 2011, 03:15:06 PM
I like Jim's idea.

mhampton - How does one take you seriously with all those little cartoon thingies under your logo?

I agree with JWard on fishing under bridges.  I done it and seen many others do it.

One thought  - Raise the outer oval all around. Make the inner oval a little higher. Make the right hand spur at base level.
