    Hi, Ron :


    It's nice of you to remember (!) and the recollection is mutual. The railroad has just secured its "real estate" and "right of way". Tracks, rails and rolling stocks are being procured (from Broughdale Hobby-Canada) as well as General Electric U20C & U8B locos (from Frateschi-Brazil) in earnest for planned operation sometime in January/February 2k5. As the name suggests, the setting (landscape) is coastal but Tropical one. And in the part of the Philippines where the "railroad" supposed to exist (and where my family resides) there will be a profusion of coconut palm trees (cocos nucifera). I didn't realize this type of tree is different from all others in being very difficult, if not impossible to model. I'm still trying to come up with a passable one by experiment with chicken secondary tail feather ( a poultry farm is 2kms near to my house). I'll be posting some pictures in due course (thanks for asking)

    No, the Sultanate of Oman doesn't have a railroad, but Saudi Arabia has one (connecting the Kingdom's eastern city of Dammam to central capital city of Riyadh about 450-500kms). I'm stationed in the southern city of Oman of Salalah which is 1065kms from the capital Muscat. And, until the local trucking lobby is surmounted by some Omani transport enterpreneurs the means of transporting goods between the two Royal Ports (RAYSUT in the south and SULTAN QABOOS in the capital) is the lone highway between the two cities.

    I missed one of your questions and that on any other model railroaders in Oman. I knew only of one. He is a local (Omani) guy, a military doctor. In the Philippines, I only knew of one (1) other NMRA registered member. I'm in contact with the guy in trying to come up with some program to promote Model Railroading among Filipino youths so it would be as lively as RC cars/planes.

    Thx LiveSteamer, I am glad you like it.The picture was easy to do but adding the text is a pain.I have to paste it all over the picture each time.So each one might look a little different.Anyone that can give me some ideas on what program to use would be great,I'm using MS Paint then pasteing the text from MS Word.

    Your Welcome. I have the same problem when i made the logo for my Tribute To Conrail Website. I had to sit for at least 1 Hour until i got even close to the original logo.

    Have you saved your E-Pass on your computer anywhere and if so that will save you time on pasting everything back on it.?

    Matthyro Will always be re-membered

    cpN, I use MGI photosuite an old imaging program I have had for years and it allows the adding of text so makes making an e-pass for others is very easy and quick too.

    I was able to download a trial version of FotoFinish and am very happy with the results now.If I change my e-pass dramatically should i re-issue it to everyone that has a old version.
    Here is my revised and cleaner one:

    This one looks great also. You can sure tell the difference between the first & second e-pass.
