      I'm always open for suggestions - in fact I need them!

      >Please take yourself away from your computer.

      I know. I'm spending so much time here in front of my computer,
      that I haven't got time for building in the real world. I'm gonna
      change that.

      In fact - this is what I have. My little oval was used to check my MT
      couplers' abilities.

      What I meant by saying that I wanted a temporary lay-out was something
      a little more sophisticated.

      But that idea is already dead and burried. I will NOT run on Marklin
      tracks ever again. Except for testing couplers etc.

      I will wait until my handlaid tracks are ready :-( (= no trains
      running in the foreseable future)

      All I learned from this is, that Marklin cannot make tracks. Not only
      are they UGLY they are useless as well. My double-slip derails trans
      at every given occasion, my ordinary turn-outs are nothing but dead

      It was my hope, that homemade code 40 tracks would alleviate the
      problems. I believe in this, but I'm beginning to doubt my skills in
      making the tracks. But I will succeed - sooner or (as it seems) later

      Thank you for your support!
