1 .6 Billion people have just lost their jobs to these little critters..... but we can have super cool road traffic so all is not lost....
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

I'm all for that!


Hmm... Kiz would be
willing to spend upwards
of $9 for that...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

How about some micro robot sanders to smooth out our shape ways parts?  :trollface:

Way cool.  Fitting in the DCC decoder looks like a bitch though.  :trollface:

Build the circuit substrate into the track, and the magnets in the locomotive and cars, and you don't need any more decoders, nor powered locomotives...

OK.  It looks like an Alco Walrus, but if it works, why not?  I've seen stranger things on the prototype.

In a related story,recently,I decaled it for The Turtle Creek RR.So I guess it's a turtle with a mustache..And yes,it works great.I drop the ballast on with a Micro Mark spreader,then go over it with old Wally..Three feet of track takes about three minutes.Even cooler,it becomes part of operations,I push it with a locomotive..Only change I gotta make,I need to put little scrapers in front of the wheels like you'd see on a hi rail vehicle to keep the ballast out from under the wheels..It's made so the brushes run a few thousandths over the ties,and it weighs a TON.You need to make a different machine for every different code of track,the outer brushes are angled...
