    I debated with myself how to answer this, but here it is.

    Last November 1st, I cut about 3/4" off the end of my thumb ripping some 1X6's for use on the layout. BTW, it has healed now.
    I've stab...

    Dead rail been around for 40 to 50 years. I remember reading about some guys using batteries power in HO back in the '70's. Maybe you could stuff a battery in a trailing box or gondola for N scale...
