    Moose not sure how to follow this last post, buuut, Da Mooses went to far far far away Port Angeles for MRR swap meet. Wooo whooo!

    Not a "big" swap meet by any means, but n-joyable none the less...

    The meet was held in this building, a number of humans selling various bits and bobs, some Lionel here and there, train books, some hoe stuff, and of course n-scale stuff. Yeah!

    Of course, it just had to have some area MRR club's large HO scale layout blocking the view. Moose gotta wonder why they invited THEM to the swap meet...

    1_PortAngelesSwapMeet_20190921_104655.jpg

    The n-scale layouts amounted to a wee circle loop by a rather junior looking fellow just getting into the hobby, Moose suspects ... And then this larger circle loop by some older humans - just starting a new it seems...

    And to Moose's shear horror - gasp! Moose spots this man - who shall NOT be named - grinning over this, this, this, oh Moose cannot say it. The photo tells all!

    Paul was just being polite, feigning interest in the layout of those poor misguided souls. I'm sure none of us would want even ho's going home from a train show weeping 'cause no one had looked at the Horribly Oversized trains.

    Hey, that's me! I'm famous now!

    I'm pretty certain what you thought was a grin was actually me grimacing in pain while bending over so low to view the 1:87 scale layout. Most modular layout standards apparently were drafted by a committee of Pygmy tribal members, whose interest in model railroading, despite having never seen a real train, still stumps anthropologists to this day.

    Anyway, the show appeared to be well-attended with a lot of kids in view . And there were at least two layouts for them to run trains on, plus a wooden train layout for the really wee ones!

    My wife and I had an enjoyable lunch with the Mooses at Jose's Famous Salsa in Sequim. The Mooses are so nice and the waitress never even flinched when Moose asked for a tall glass of fresh marsh water with just a hint of algae on top!

    If the layouts are not at Pygmy height the kids can't see them. If they can't see them, they won't develop an interest. Without kids interested in model railroading, our trains and layouts become worthless.

    Dag'gum'it!


    Moose still trying to get something to print on white decal paper. Black ink ran out, so the black decals didn't come out well at all, and probably for the same black ink issue, all but the red ink decals look like something by Georges Seurat!!!


    Well, Moose gonna let the ink dry overnight and then spray the red with a few thin layers of clear coat...

    UPDATE: Moose not sure, but lack of sufficeint black ink may have rendered the red decals unusable as well... Arrrggg!

    That's a bummer, Moose. ... Are you using an ink jet or a laser printer? I've had decent results with the latter.

    Oh boy! Pointillism in N scale! Can you produce A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte in 1:160? I have just the place to hang it.

    @Moose2013
    Sorry you are still struggling with decals.

    What is the exact problem(s)?

    @Paul Schmidt

    Moose use inkjet. Is it time to step up to a laser printer?
    @donzi

    Well, for some reason the black decals are printing as if black ink is low, but the printer says otherwise. And the coloured decals really do some across as dots instead of solid. Did that on my other cheaper inkjet as well. The red looks relatively solid, but perhaps too red... Would post a photo of it, but letting it dry in case the red is okay after all...
