Re: THE FJ&G WILL RISE FROM THE ASHES!!!
- Hi Paul
I used a car card system on the first layout .I'm planning on using
switch lists done by computer.I more than enough room to do the whole
line my biggest obstical is locating the two spaces to return loop
the NYC.I will come up with something.I looking forward to the new
challenges of Fonda and more industries.If you look at the old plan
in Rail model journal there was not enough to do.I now know how many
pepole come on operating nights so this will work great. I have to go
get the baby's pictures done I'll finish later.

- Yes, I can assist in that regard. We have a custom decal mfg here in
Wausau, WI ( just Moved to Green Bay, WI and is building a home )
that is unequalled. He uses Alps printers, to my knowledge. His name
is Bill Priepke, and runs SCAILRAILGRAPHICS.
His led's and things are great too. He is getting back up on his legs
from the move, but I've known him a few years and he is hard to beat.
Should you need legwork on this end with getting artwork to him, I
would be happy to assist; but methinks it can go direct to him.
Congradulation Steve on your efforts. Now, if we can only get the D&H
and the Milwaukee Road to rise again....
