Unexpectedly,
     
          I didn't expect all the expected tongue lashing from Greg, even tho I expected Tom to run one of his trains off a open drawbridge. Man with all the unexpectedness out there, should I expect more unexpected things today? Or did someone else already expect that?  Still confused? ;D  xoxoxox

When I lived in Germany, I loved going to Grand Prix events. Than I had a Snap-on Tools route serving Penske Racing in Reading, Pa..
I had the thrill of meeting Roger and many of the drivers. My brother in law and nephew both worked for Penske.

Good evening! Tom I hope everything went well with the unexpected guests.   I'm up at the S&S RR Northern Hqtrs. enjoying the beautiful Northern Michigan weather. All the weekenders are leaving so I got enough band width on the internet to post.  I hope everyone is enjoying their day. Thom thanks for the update on the F&SM.

Wife made waffles this morning, and I smoked a pork butt for dinner.  Life is Good!


I got the track samples (Peco US Code 83, Micro Engineering Code 83, Micro Engineering Code 70, Walthers Code 70), and now I need to figure what I'll do to evaluate them.  I want to choose the primary track for my forthcoming layout set in the 1890s.   (For the previous layout, I used Peco Code 75, but the tie spacing doesn't look very good for US prototype, and it takes a lot of work to fix that.)

Let us know which one you choose. Your time frame adds some complexity to the decision.

Dave,

I would use the Micro Engineering Code 70 for your modeling era.  I am using Code 70 on my new layout and it is working fine and looks great.  I know that Frank/Erieman also uses Code 70 on his layout.
