      Daniel,
      You are assuming that the Universe even acknowledges our existence. To the Universe the human race may be nothing more than just another species on a small planet amongst millions of such large rocks and simply not even care one way or the other.
      I think I should stop here because I are getting into religion, which, like politics, is a topic to be avoided at all costs in a specific forum like model trains.
      I would like to say that perhaps one reason we make our little models is because it is something we can control, something we can make with our own hands that gives us some pleasure, enjoyment and fun.
      Toot toot.

      Stephen:

                 Ignorance, seems to me, is the human condition. All the rest is just more or less successful camouflage.
                 Because deep inside we all know that, we constantly seek for someone else to confirm our lie in order to forget who we really are, which -if we succeed-  brings us back to the start point: ignorance.
          
                  For example: to be honest, I have no idea what all the above could mean. But it sounds good and gives the impression I know something about (Which I don't). It makes me feel better to think you think I know, so (who cares?!) I'll mail it to you. And if you believe it I still have a little chance of believing it myself...and so on.

                  My only question is: Assuming the Universe knows we, mankind, are here, would he be laughing from his belly or smiling with tenderness?

                                                             (Hmm...Daniel: that was a good one. ..
                                                               It even  gave the impression you was talking about
                                                               something... for a while.)

      Daniel,
      Not having any knowledge of Latin at all, I have the advantage of complete ignorance. So I can say whatever I want with impunity.

      Setephen:

                  The funny thing is that I never realised that FS in our group's name was related to finescale!
                  (You will smile but my only vague association was with the FS of the Italian railways Ferrovie dello Stato).)

                   And @$#%&%#!!!: The only Latin I could quote is church related!

      Daniel,
      To add another Latin phrase to nitpickerus bewareus, one can also use non carborndum est, which very loosely translates to "Don't let the bastards grind you down."
      Its your model railroad, do it your way.
      Most of the fine scale modelers are pretty good guys, but there are a few who are so obsessive that they annoy everybody in the hobby.

      Daniel-yes, there is a prototype for everything. Even if there wasn't a "real life" version of someone's model...that model could be considered the prototype! As the old Latin phrase recalls-"nitpickeru s bewareus".  Have fun and run a train...      Woodie

         Don't worry about that.
         The owner of a n.g. miseum here in Holand said to me: "Freelancing? Impossible. If you can think it it is already been done in real narrow gauge."
         So: enjoy!
