    While this little one hasn't yet learned to duck for the tunnels, we're working on it!

    Can anyone tell me the exchange rate on seed?

    MSH, I seldom use the word "cute" in association with model railroads but that is cute!:D :) Did you train the budgie to ride or did he just decide to do it on his own?:D Its almost scary how intelligent those little birds are. It obvious that he wants to be the engineer:D :)

    Vic - being hand fed from birth and very happy with human contact, our "Olive" is only 8 weeks old and just took to riding the rails with no training or effort. I'm going to build a small perch and mount it on a flat car and hopefully get her to duck for the in and out of the tunnels. That would be a site to see!

    MSH...How about using a depressed center flatcar? That would lower Olive's head even further:)

    Considering the importance of this moment to be, I believe that is sufficient reason to buy one! Excellent idea. Thanks Vic!

    Hey - I will also be able to use it when I buy that teeny wireless camera for the train's eye view of the ride.

    msh, that it very cool,

    My wife had a giant rat that she tried to get to ride on an Oscale marx train I have. It did make a loop on it but I think it was because the poor thing was terrified to jump.:D

    Along the same lines, you may want to consider a high-quality track cleaning car as well as a perch! :) ;)

    Ralph Remember...it's for fun!

    Fun picture! Maybe you could sell it to Amtrak as part of a new ridership campaign. The slogan could be "Don't fly, take the train!" :)

    LOL... good one Ralph.

    A lot of you guys, here and on other forums, are sure concerned on my little bird's rear and what comes out of it. That's funny too. I just will have to make a little figure with a broom and put him to work.

    hey Tyson.... watch it there, buddy :p
    .... she's a member of the family. :)

    AND she rides my cat too... well....
    until he decides the ride is over - about 5 seconds. One time she held on pretty good few a few more seconds, like a bucking bronco, and then flew off to the floor.
