- Dec 1, 2003Hello Bill,
I admire your restraint. Sometimes this stuff is not as interesting
to all of us unless we are directly involved. Yes, I miss Ole Rosted
as well. He was excoriatingly critical of inaccurate track
and turnouts. He is an advocate for code 40 in Z scale and I believe
he is right. Also, handlaid track can be very beautiful in any scale.
I respect your remarks as well but want leave open ended the
various traces we follow as we blunder through this technology.
Z scale needs criticism as much as it needs as advocacy.
We (Micron Art) will have booth #450 at the Seattle NMRA 2004
show in July. If you are there, please stop by. We can exchange
war stories on the railroading front. All of us can agree
that it is railroads that we want to promote as the alternative to
the millions of acres that are continually squashed under concrete
