    Hi Paul, I'm also a member over at "The Railwire" forum and one of the member is working on a new N scale layout called "Conrail in Coal country". It's the ex-Lehigh Valley anthracite coal branches that were operated by Conrail using SW1500's and MP15DC's until the lines were sold off to the Reading, Blue Mountain & Northern. Ed is thinking about modeling the line in the winter months and one of the other members suggest he should check out the work you've been doing on the Slate Fork Branch.
    Cheers,
    Rich S

    Hi Paul, What board did you post to and get a snarky response from a moderator? So far I post to the American board and I've not had a problem.

    Hi Paul, I'm surprised this happened on the UK N Gauge forum and it's sad you received that kind of treatment being a new guy to the forum. Everyone I've dealt with on that forum seems very easy going. The forum I'd expect that that kind of treatment from is The Railwire. I do not visit that forum as often as I use to, many because of the snarky response and flame wars. Anyway I'm posting this just as a heads up to things I've seen on The Railwire forum, since that was the forum were I saw your name mentioned and the work you've been doing on the Slate Fork Branch.
    Cheers,
    Rich S

    @Paul Schmidt

    Moose wouldn't mind knowing what specific British MRR forum(s) you would recommend to a moose - just to learn more about the British-specific models & railroads in which Moose has an interest, mind you ... Moose never ever going to leave the nSn family.

    I agree, great modeling Paul. Someday when my modeling mojo returns, I want to relay the Long Valley Branch with Code 55 rail.

    Cool Paul can't wait to see your tuxedo unit finished.

    Is this one of the old central of Georgia SD9's.

    Have a reason for asking you this.

    Ow, that's a lump of poop. Theft is such a personal violation and takes some getting over

    I hope the lovely spring birdsong and flowers bursting into bloom and the thought of all those imminent Easter eggs can lift your spirits

    As they apparently didn't make off with your camera. I think you need to post some 'non progress' photos of your layout to keep us all happy.
    Thanks, Tom

    Well, if I had more vacation time...i have a 3/4 crew cab truck with a utility bed just over flowing with tools..but I don't, and dern sure I don't have to funds to put gas in the bottomless pit of a fuel tank.
    So emotional support is all I can give.

    But hey, the opportunity to purchase new tools has presented its self. Need to look into the Milwaukee M18 series of cordless tools.
