    Does it work?????

    When I vote, (select HO) and click vote, I get a blank white screen. When i "view reults" my vote does not show.

    Maybe there's an OZ filter enabled or something.

    I just voted and viewed. Seemed to work fine for me.

    As I will be modeling an HO narrow gauge, most of the model will of course be HO.

    My apologies

    My apologies to those who model in G gauge, HOn3, HOn30, whatever. I threw the choices togeter quickly just to see how the polls work. By the way, I'm sure there's a tale to tell on why "N Gauger" models in G scale!

    Ha ha ha.

    Gee, billk, if you were able to think of everything, then there would be nothing to fiddle with on your railroad.

    Wouldn't it be boring if everything went right the first time?:D

    Billk, Hi!! My very informal Rail Club, JGBSMF&W RR (Our Emblem is my Avatar) "dabbles" in all scales. Our First Layout was in HO, and measured 8' X 8' in a U shape. It wasn't large enough. We sold the HO & bought N Gauge, we created a 12 X 9 N gauge layout with 120' of track, 2 yards, 2 levels. It took 1,250' of wire to wire all the switches, power & indicater lights, that were on a huge 8' wide X 3' tall Model board with a complete track plan. (That's how I got the name). LOL We now have, after 18 years: an N gauge 2' x 3' Coffee table layout, an HO railroad that "Lives" on the dining room wall 4" below the ceiling, and a G scale 3 tiered 9' x 12' layout in my basement. I hand built a Z gauge briefcase layout and have an N scale Doodlebug running across a shelf at my office at work. LOL
    Pics are on the net at:


    Enjoy!! & Thanks for asking! :) Also, the "Name" stands for all the members of the "Club" Janine, George, Bart, Steve, Mike (me), Fred, Wayne, & Rhonda (My Wife)
    Keep on Training!!!! N Gauger

    I did a "null" vote and it came up with the blank screen, followed by an actual vote, and it was fine. So my vote has now been counted.
