Going to start today with a question that I know throws a lot of folk. Please do post your answers:
I love your emails and posts. Thanks. I have a question. I”m not sure where to go to find the answer. I have HO curved track pieces of all different lengths and radius. I find that some of my train pieces can’t make certain curves because the curves are too tight. How do I know if a curve is too tight? How do i measure the radius of a curved section of track? What’s too tight?

this probably has been submitted before. Florists oasis can be pulverized in your fingers to make this very realistic greenery and is much cheaper.
I enjoy your emails and save most of them for future reference.

And now I’d like to share the polar opposites that fill my inbox most days. Here’s one from Stephan and one from Bob.
Stephen’s mail made me think, “Why do I bother?”.
But then I read Bob’s and all was well with the world again.
“A job worth doing, is a job worth doing well. You could definitely ratchet your email(s) and website up a notch or two.
Seeing both, leads me to believe a kid is doing them.
Some basic education in sending emails and the website should be programmed in to your hobby or “profession.”
A Hodge Podge is a Hodge Podge… with a little self esteem you could do wonders.
Surely, across the pond, there are people that would help you.
And now compare that, with Bob’s:
I’ve been receiving your Emails for about a month now and I must say that I get great pleasure from reading and learning tip’s and suggestion’s from what I’ll call your newsletter’s.
Although I know you can’t possibly respond to what must be a plethora of Emails sent to you I do not need to add to your list.
Just wanted to say you’ve started to help me battle a 3 year bout with depression. I’m 55 and have started digging through 15 year’s amassing N scale RR material. Tracks, engines, scenery,
book’s on how to and the like.
I believe your word’s have given my life a lot more meaning.
Thanks for the inspiration.
That’s all for today my freinds.
Please do keep ’em coming. It’s getting a bit thin on the ground this end.
