Sounds like me - "Hanging around in here"
Why NO!!!(as i pick up my Union Pacific coffee cup and take a drink), i am not even close to that:eeki: (ooops, let me put down the UP boxcar i am weathering, makes typing easier:119: ). i haven't even seen ANY real trains since(looks at 2007 official UP callender)...last weekend:up: . "Hang on a second, i have to check something"...(starts checking the UPS package tracking, have to see when my NEW UP GP35 is due at my door)...Umm....what was the question?:119: ...OH YEA, the train show is in two weeks!:up:
My wife read that and asked me if I needed to go to rehab and start attending support group meetings for train addicts.
HIDE THIS FROM THE WIFES!!!! LOL.i think that was just a little bit too much fo me,and i though i was a train nut --josh
Tell her The Gauge "IS" a support group! When you are online you aren't operating trains
This doesn't describe me ... yet
Too funny. I love The Onion.
Problem? What problem?
But does he belong to The Gauge? If not he's not totally hooked like we are:-D.
Nah, I can see plenty of differences:
I don't have a basement full of train stuff... well, I don't have a basement, that's probably the reason
I don't drive six hours to a train show... probably because most train shows are no more than an hour's drive away (except for the one up in Prescott, which is two hours away)
I don't spend overnight when I go to a train show... (See #2)
My wife doesn't get upset when I'm working on my trains...mainly because I can't keep her from doing what she wants to do while I'm there. (The exception to that is when she goes to the train shows with me.)
The biggest difference between us though is that I'm not into Lionel, nor O scale of any kind...
See, this proves that I'm not hooked. Now excuse me while I go lock myself in my train room and work on my scratchbuild project for a few hours...
Yes, I have a support group. Here.
People in this forum would more than support my buying more trains.:mrgreen:
I'm not hooked on model railroading!!!
I could walk away from it anytime!.....Ok...Maybe tomorrow.....OK
Next week........Maybe next year......
Ahhhhh!...I am hooked!!!!
Our daughter's bf is coming in from Germany this weekend to "meet the parents". She told me on the phone today, "Now, Dad, don't try to talk him into trains!!" But I'm bringin' an n-scale loco to show off, ya never know!
Boy, I get pretty close to this. I still think I'm conscious enough of my train obsession though that it's not a problem. There are a few things I need to do tonight, one being trying to fix a tender that keeps derailing. Rob
One thing I don't get -- why would he want a 40-watt transformer?
That's what Lionel runs on Some are over 100W
I meant, does anything Lionel run on as little as 40 watts?
Yeah - My 10E runs on 40W
