    My son really loves this! (I do, too!)

    This gives me an idea... I wonder if we could have a thread or something where we recreate moments from history (both real and fictional).

    Great work, Tyson!

    Glad you liked it Rory, being as your thread was the inspiration for it. BTW like your new avatar! :cool: Like your idea about recreating moments in history also.

    That is a sweet looking avatar.:) :) :) :)

    You doing anything with your lay-out???

    The only thing that I've done with the layout lately is look at it... I've got a bit of a problem that needs solving. Our landlord is building a new house that we are slated to move into (probably be ready in February). It's bigger than the house we're in now, but the odd arrangement of the space may mean that I won't have room for my layout!

    What to do...what to do???

    I've been toying with making it a 2'x4', with maybe a 1 foot shelf running from one end that would be the actual branchline up to Copper Ridge. I don't know yet... I hate to tear everything down, but the prospect of doing all of this a little differently is kinda interesting...

    I'll post some trackplan ideas later.

    Thanks for the compliments on the avatar. It features one of those nifty 50-ton gondolas and that bobber caboose that Tyson donated to the railway. :)

    I could be wrong, but wasn't ACME a subsidiary of "Roadrunner Enterprises"?

    Steve your right on the money,


    No room for a lay-out?? Is your land lord out of his mind??? Didn't he run the blue prints by you first before breaking ground???:D :D :D :D

    My first 2X4 was based on N-Trak guide line but didn't like the way the tracks have to match up.

    You can do alot on a 2X4, I cant but other people have no problems. I think too big or my window of vision is too small.:) :( :) :)

    LOL now that was funny !!!!!!!!!!! Just like the cartoon.

    I always felt sorry for Wile E., though. And really, he should've called Acme and complained. Weren't some of his purchases on warranty ???

    60103 Pooh Bah

    The New Yorker printed a very funny story some years ago called "Coyote vs Acme". It's just been reprinted in a book of shorts by ?? I'm having a senior moment. Have to look it up. It's the lawyer's summation of Wile E.'s case against the Acme Co.

    Hey Tyson,
    I was lookin' back at this one, & it occured to me that W.C. & R.R. are really closer to O scale...(hint, hint...;) :D )
    And, of course, you might want to consider some floor-to-ceiling cliffs, for W.C. to fall off of! :D

    That one was truely classic, Ty. And so well done! Thanks for bumping it up.

    New folks will also want to look up The Box . Of course The History of The Box is a good primer. It's a long thread, but worth the read. Good one to bookmark and read a few pages every day.

    BTW: The Box is an ongoing project, feel free to participate.
