    We are not the most active bunch of folks here on "The gauge". I've got an excuse, I'm old. Maybe your Shay ran away and ended up in the swamp or a tree fell on you.sign1 As for me, I'm plugging along with my logging diorama. I have all of the rail down, the trestles are in, No power to the track yet but I did drill holes for wire. Now that the museum is closed for the winter, I can rip and tear without disturbing the operation of the layout. Our club president is heading south for the winter so no meetings for a few months.

    The more you share this with us fellow gaugers, in words and pictures, the more people may become interested! you know there's no lack of inspiration on the Gauge! :)

    Ive put off the Logging line until I finish the current project....Digital 1/32 Slot car circuit.
    The On30 point to point will go on the shelf above it and be built as a Modular layout In easily transportable sections.(most will be 16 x 30 inches) I have room for aproximately 26 running feet above Slot track and Workbenches. Viewing height Is aproximately 64" (eye Level for me :).
    Mostly it will be st up for displaying scratchbuilt structures, But it will operate in the slow fashion a logging line does..........It will however lack the dramatic steep grades so common to a logging line...........Ive a ways to go before I actually start on this however :)

    Probably most of them are at Yahoo's 4L forum....

    Uhg, Yahoo Groups is such an unintuitive way to navigate a discussion. I like vB and phpBB forums so much better.

    But cool that there is such a group - I've joined and will probably find it quite informative. Thanks for the link!

    I am waiting for winter so I can hang out in the basement. I just bought a Mustang GT so while the weather is still good I am seeing to it that my XOM stock is doing well. On saturday nights WABC NYC plays the "oldies" 60s & 70s. It is exactly what and where I was when I was 10 years old. WOW I have come a long way!

    You're most welcome. They're a serious bunch of RR loggers at 4L with lots of knowledge of the topic and a vast network of input. Forumwise, it's kinda like comparing the "NG&SL Gazette" with "Model Railroader" when it comes to logging if you catch my drift....

    Information? You'll get it there!
