    Way to go Shamus and Casey,

    Congrats on your both being published. You are both deserving. I have learned a lot from you and your articles, forum post, and pictures. Both of you have established a high standard of excellence for the rest of us to try to achieve in our modelling.

    Congrats Shamus and Casey.
    Jon, look in the "Magic" section of your 2002 catalog. Shamus has a picture in there too. Took me awhile to figure it out.
    "Badger Creek......Now where have I heard that before?"

    I`ve been admiring Paul`s work for quite sometime now. His artistic endeavors have amazed me and my wife and I always strive to be as good but I haven`t even gotten close. Back to the drawing board! I always thought his layout was better than most if not all featured in MR (John Allen`s was pretty good too!) I`ve been meaning to contact MR and suggest they look at Paul`s website but somebody beat me to the punch. Congratulations Paul, I`ll be looking forward to my next MR! Jerry

    I agree Jerry, Paul's work is outstanding!!! I have been in model RR'ing for over 30 years but I have not been able to do anything even close to Paul's work. But I am trying!!!!

    Was up to the hobby shop last evening for paint supplies, and saw the October issue of Model Railroading was in. Pages 32 through 37 are filled with the spectacle of the New Badger Creek.
    Nice article, sweet photos, now I don't have to wait for the 'puter to fire up, to get some inspiration. Just open the mag, and
    ( I was going to say drool ) stare.

    Hi Paul,

    I'm happy to say that I do have the Model Railroading issue featuring your Badger Creek photos. I've been telling everybody that "I KNOW THIS MASTER MODELER"....well, I really do...sorta! And I even tell them that "I KNOW" Casey Feedwater...and that he ain't such a "stinking polecat" that folks make him out to be!! (I'm jest funnin'!) It was an extra bonus to have L&N featured in the same mag...
    I admire both yours and Mike's talent! And thanks for sharing...Ya'll gave us all a sneak preview before publication...I appreciate everything Ya'll do...and to everyone else here and on other forums who give of their time and talent for the World's Greatest Hobby!
    Happy Railroading...pass it on!
    :p Debbie

    I never thought Casey stank. Now the polecat thing, I have to say I'm torn on the issue myself...:D


    PS: How are you and your bro doin' kid? We all be a bit concerned for you two...

    Model Railroading magazine was at Trainfest this past weekend. I believe it was Randal Lee who I spoke with, he had much high praise, and good thoughts of you. He also said there were many more photos than were published with the article, too bad he didn't put them all in.

    Hi Pete, yes, I have known Randy for around 10 years now, he has published 13 articles of mine over this period. The same applies to "Continental Modeller " here in the UK, Andrew Burnham (Editor) has published over 20 in the last 12 years, still has one of mine already to go soon I think.

    Just when my anticipatory moisture was about to dry out for fear of lost issues, the tele rings, and it's Jack, at the LHS, and he tells me the blim-blammin' October Model Railroading is in! Wonderful! Awesome! You GOTTA GET ONE! Shamus, YOU DA MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!

    jon---I would hope that all of us at The Gauge are happy that you're a member here! If it wasn't for your humor day in and day out, we might just all be sitting here staring at the blue screen counting "ribbets" and arguing over meaningless things that are REAL IMPORTANT!
    After laughing out loud (or is that L-ingOL?:confused: ) at so many of your posts, my wife is beginning to wonder what's wrong with ME!:)
    Thanks for your bringing us all your sense of humor each day!

    Now, take your meds and go to bed:D :D :D :D :D ;)
