    In May's issue of Model Railroader Magazine. I am stealing their straw idea. You take a drinking straw and put it through you layout. Then you run your wires for your lights, signals, etc. through it. It works! I have 2 inches of foam and a 1/4 inch of wood. I have already damage some Sunrise signal lights because of the no straws. I went to the dollar store and baught 100 for a buck!

    I don't think you need to consider it stealing. I'm sure MR published the idea because it would be usful to us model railroad folks.

    For those of us that have lots of bus cables I suggest using a thin hose pipe.

    darkcurves, does your Blue Tiger have sound??
