    Morning. Back from Sunday School and walk around the pond area. Re-did my track plan yesterday. Wanted to build more benchwork but got Rolesville Christmas Parade. Got to ride on Town Board float. :wave: Then we might go see the new Nativity movie. Suppose to be cold and windy tomorrow. Will build some then. Got Sheriff's victory party tomorrow evening early and then rush back for Town Board. Went to Todd's Train Depot and bought a bunch of switches. Got to buy 11 more. :eek: :cry: Have a good one.

    Finally recovered from yesterday's trip. Went to Buffalo to see A Prairie Home Companion. That's me in the sing-along that's doing bass harmony off=key.
    We were going to a hobby shop and a Border's that are almost side-by-side. Turned out the power had been down since the day before. Took a picture of Santa in the caboose and a couple of reindeer, then went to Cracker Barrel for lunch. Returned and spent time in mall because power still off. Last try -- power was on; hobby shop open but bookstore still closed. Then we went downtown for the show. Saw Buffalo streetcars for the first time. Lovely theatre; terrific show.
    US border guard asked us for the keys and then inspected the trunk -- was doing it to everybody. Canadian customs lost interest when we had no alcohol or tobacco.

    Spanky: how do you hold the track down on the foam?

    Hi Guys,
    Just recovering from our club's display yesterday.
    Our club set up displays at the Prescott Resort where they hold the worlds largest Gingerbread display.
    First two are photos of our N scale modular layout.
    The third is our On30 modular layout.
    The last 2 are a couple of the other club member's displays.

    I wonder why I am suddenly unable to directly access this thread when I am notified there is a message. It has not happened about three times and each time it is in response to a message from Chief Eagles:curse: I can get on otherwise, just not by a direct reply to the notification:cry:

    We use finishing deck screws #6. It is about 1 3/4" long and fits thru the holes in the tracks. These have heads that also fit in MTH realtrack. That is what I orginally bought them for.

    If you put enough of them in, the track holds its place. Do remember, this part of the layout is only tempary for our open house and Christmas Display.

    When we build the finial layout, the track will be mounted on 1/2" foam and 1/2" plywood. I have found this to be the best for noise reduction.

    And now for other good things.

    Today we recieved 7" of the white stuff and only had a high of 25 deg. Over night low was 17 deg and they say we can get another 7 or 8" tomorrow morning and I have to go to Grand Rapits again.:rolleyes:
