    Select your country...and

    Select a city near you - "I had to select a city with an airport" on the 3rd try :(

    It may only have Huge cities built in to it :(

    Select a city as close to you as you can & you are taken to this page:

    I'm hoping we can get most of the members to post a city near them - That would be 1500 - 2000 stars LOL

    After you are all done.. Click on "My Maps" and you will get the list of all the maps.. The HO boxcar World tour.... The N gauge car tour and a Nextel Cup Scedule for 2005 :D :D
