Re: Aces travels and steam ups

Great video - love all the steam! Wonderful to have a place to go run trains in the winter (or anytime)!

Thanks for another beautiful set of pictures - oh how I would love to have something similar around where I live!

Re: Family trees

Got my DNA report back from Ancestry.com today. Turns out a little different than I thought but not all bad - 28% Great Britain, 24% Ireland/Scotland/Wales, 19% Europe West, 9% Europe East, 6% Iberian Peninsula, 14% miscellaneous. Now I just about have to start a family tree - might be fun!

Re: Stuart Twin 504 / No 9 Steamplant.

That's going to be a great steam plant - love the massive chimney on the two 504 boilers!

Re: Quality RC car from RC4WD

When I went to our local hobby shop they were pushing the Traxxas Defender but up close it didn't look "solid" like your RC4WD does Knut, however, when pressed about being all plastic instead of steel they assured me it would stand up just as well - still like yours best though!

Re: Exceptional Cheapness

Looks like it came out great - you should get a lot of enjoyment from your layout down the road. And even if you don't get a lot of comments there are a lot of people, like me, following along, highly interested in your project - this kind of thread is what helps to keep the forum going strong.

Re: A new indoor live steam layout

The Signal Box looks great Larry.  Another milestone reached in the build! Congratulations.  Really looking forward to the next update.  Thanks, the next update will be a while as the last of the building kits are in country but held up by customs apparently. Will be glad to finish the buildings so...
