  1. Modeling a Model Railroad.

    Musings,

    This is a complex, expensive, multi-disapline hobby and I am a profoundly ignorant man. I have no idea at all how to build a model railroad so instead I am going to build a model of a model railroad, a development railroad, on which I can test or validate each decision I make, or at least gain a practical understanding of the design trade-offs involved in such decisions.

    I have already purchased a pair of hopper cars and I have pre-ordered a locomotive.

  2. Rules for RR XING signs?

    I found this place (which is a similar sort of situation) and was kind of surprised to see that there weren't any signs at all. Is this typical? Are there any rules for this?

  5. Off topic humor

    In hard times it is important to keep the spirits up. In spite of that, I offer this joke :

    Diner: Waiter, I would like a glass of wine.
    Waiter: Yes sir, red or white?
    Diner: It doesn't matter, I'm color blind.

    I don't know how a blog works. This is my first effort. I hope others can add to this.
