    Here are a couple of pictures that my son in law took of an outdoor setup some

    where around the Akron, Ohio area. Anybody recognize them?

    It's grandpa Munster's dragster!
    I used to have one of those, as well as the Tarantula.
    Nice photos, everyone.

    Keith, There is a real story on that airplane. No, I didn't get it from Jim.
    It is made from 18 Coors beer cans. A crippled girl makes them for 10 bucks
    each. She cuts the pattern with tin snips and pop rivets it together. She
    must have made a thousand of them. Real classic.

    Clark... That was over 20 years ago, that she made that plane. Today,
    that little girl is still in a wheel chair. She owns her own company and
    is VERY well off. Hats off to her.

    I got to thinking about this shot. They must have really good drainage under there, or else there would be lots of short circuits. :eek:

    Pitch - I'm guessing the track under the driveway isn't powered at all...the loco is probably battery powered (batts located in a separate car) and the loco is Radio Controlled. If I would ever build an outdoor train, that's how I would do it. You'd never have to really keep the track very clean, you could use whatever track (brass or stainless) you wanted, and you wouldn't have to worry about good electrical continuity between track sections. Some of the G-Scale guys can expound on this...

    I guess that makes sense. If the track were powered there would be no end to the problems of shorting out the rails. When I was a kid on the farm we ran electric fences and it seemed that a couple times a week we'd have to walk the fence to clear weeds and whatnot that would short it out. Something that close to the ground would be even more susceptible. Goes to show what I know about Garden Railroading. :D :D :D
