Re: [Z_Scale] Re: Hello....
- Get off the gas prices and stay on topic.
Scott, sure hope that was you that stopped by the World's Greatest Hobby show at the San Mateo Event Center last weekend ! We get together pretty much just get together to run trains at these types of shows or some local event (hence the Z-Bend Track module standard). However, each of us periodically work on our modules or help with newcomers. Home layouts or what we cal BYOZ (bring your own Z for shows, office or education) are both discussed amongst us SF Bay Area Z BoyZ.

I visited with club in this area that uses the sbendtrack standard. I look at it last evening and it was an eyeopener. I've alway take the approach to modeling as grabbing a 4x8 sheet of wood and laying out some loops and whatnot. The modular approach looks a lot more fun an flexible.

- Gentlemen, Let's get off the gas price topic right now please.
I'm sitting on 2 messages that will not be approved because now the discussion is turning political one country vs. another, or comments on our government.
More "gas" comments may be removed... let's enjoy trains!!
