    So with coffee and cookies to help us think we had a great 2 hrs playing er :oops: I mean planning :D
    Anyway I thought you guys would like to join us. :thumb:

    The other end will go to a single track to go over the river and loop back.

    If you need a little help that`s what friends are for VAL :thumb:
    We thought we could drop by on the 24 April as we are doing the antique Toy and Train show for one day with the L/O.
    But we will see you on the Double Header tour before that Val. :D

    If you need us sooner ,Throw a day and time out and I`ll chat with the "Brotherhood" :D :cool:

    Cool!! What are your plans for today? (Just kidding!)

    Seriously though, I would really appreciate some help wiring my Tortoises and dwarf signals. I now have a dremel and soldering iron, so all I lack is know-how. Any weekend is good for me. I know your schedule is pretty tight Chris, so, let me know when you can get away. I'll provide the grub and refreshments.

    As for the traction module, I'm still undecided as to what kind of track to use. I like the looks of the Proto 87 girder rail, but I'm not sure if I could convert a Bowser PCC to run on it. Orr is pretty cool as well.......decisions, decisions.

    :wave: That is a fine looking layout you guys and it will be a great traction scene with you Chris working on it. I have a small question, what is the backdrop scene behind the stock car? I like the looks of it as well. Thanks for posting these pictures, and I agree I think traction is contagious. :thumb: Jim

    Yes Steve, we have a great bunch in the East end of Toronto, and we get to meet up with great folk in the West. :D

    Thanks Jim, Brian has done a lot of work late last year , and one big reason was this traction addition.
    I will ask him to post the info you need friend.

    backdrop ?

    Hi Jim, Thanks for the nice comments on the backdrop. I had little room for model buildings up at that end of the layout. I found these carboard buildings. with 2 long pieces in each pack. they may not appear that great at fisrt, but when they go up they look really good. I have another 4 ft. of them on the other end of the layout. I really like how they look there!! They are very simple to use and the best part is they are cheap. $5.98 US. Walthers makes them and they are called simply INSTANT BUILDINGS Check them out Jim, I think you,ll like them. Enjoyed talking to you Jim. Duckman :thumb:
