    The main point of the event is that it's a no-bull get-together of N-scalers who just want to set up layouts and have a good time running trains. N-scalers of all shapes and sizes and variety are...

    I haven't had a chance to post any current photos yet. The riverbanks have been stripped of grass, and the neighboring corner has been stripped of static grass as well.

    Static grass applicator was built.

    Static grass applicator did not function properly no matter what I did to it, and no matter what power supply I used for it.

    I now have all the electronic components for my static grass applicator.

    All I need to do now is scrounge up parts for the body and such so that I can start assembling everything.

    I'm not dead, I was just merely resting.

    I pulled the layout back out of the catacombs a few days ago and blew some of the dust off of it. And before the thought of running a train even crossed my...

    The DD1s run well enough. Just a bit grumbly sounding.
    A friend of mine has one and he runs it at shows occasionally, when he occasionally decides to run trains.

    I bought a Dapol 9F, early-emblem BR, a week or so ago.
    It needs a decoder before it can be of any real use to me.

    I'd assume so. It may be necessary to reach out to whomever is thought to have the box at current and have them send it on ASAP.

    It only takes one person to throw a wrench in things.
