  • GreetingZ to My Band of BrotherZ and SisterZ, Those of us who attended NTS Philly last July attracted the attention of a freelance writer, Damien McCaffery, who was collecting background info and getting photos taken of our moduleZ, trainZ and BYOZ layoutZ by a professional photographer, with the idea of doing a story for Life Magazine (yes, the Life Magazine of Time-Life Inc. fame...

  • GreetingZ GuyZ 'n GalZ, Alan, what the manufacturer of the smoke generators probably is saying is that 7.2 volts is required for their product to work, which is a perfectly valid specification, as the current/power consumed is just directly proportional to the resistance of the heater element at that voltage. You use products every day which require 120 VAC, regardless of their...

  • GreetingZ David, I hope all is well with you. I've been busier than a one-aarmed paper hanger in a hurricane the last few weeks, and I'm about to drive to Minnesota and back to pick up my Helicycle kit (http://www.helicycle.com) from a Northwest Airlines captain who's moving overseas. As you probably already know since you sent the package with delivery confirmation, I did, indeed...

  • GreetingZ All, No joy here getting in, either, after over an hour of applet not loading, null pointer, and other miscellaneous error messages, and not just for the Z_Scale group - I can't get into any Yahoo chat rooms. I noticed that none of us in California or the Southeast have been able to get in, and since the server each of us logs into is located in our local region, it may...

  • GreetingZ Harold and OtherZ Listening for the Sound of their MasterZ, I had a discussion with one of the SoundTraxx people (seemed like a marketing weenie, not an engineering weenie :) at NTS 2005 in Cincinnati last July, and half-jokingly asked when we could expect SoundTraxx decoders for Z scale locos. He gave me a very snide reply to the effect that "We will never make any sound...

  • GreetingZ Fellow Amateur VulcanologistZ! Most of what comes billowing out of an active volcano is actually steam and "ash" (actually pumice, which can be in the form of anything from tiny glass-like shards, to fairly large globs of rapidly-cooled lava thrown up from the vent). I would say it's probably OK to generate as much steam as you want (and I would definitely invest in...

  • I'm sorry it's taken me this long to respond to your bad news, but I just wanted to add my words of condolences and encouragement to those of everyone else. We lost a father last July, and a close friend in December, and being from a family with a history of many very early cancer deaths, I try to make every day count as if it were my last (so now you all know why I'm still craZy...

  • GreetingZ Marble, I'm not sure if you've noticed yet, but there is a Northern California Z group halfway between the ZoCal group and your location, the San Francisco Bay Area Z Scale Module Cooperative (better known as the BAZ BoyZ, in the interests of not passing out from lack of oxygen when saying it). It includes the Much More Talented Mr. RipleyZ, aka Robert Ray, Ted LaMar...
