    Hello All:

    Just alittle update. I am changing my homepages, again! I was running out of room. My droid144 page is going to be more towards Jessica's and my life together. Don't fear Rock Island Fans. All of those GIF's, Heralds, Pictures, and Models will still be there! However, they are going to be moved. Just like my Ham Radio pages was moved a year ago. Same is happening to my railroading. Geocities doesn't give you alot of room on thier free service!

    You will also see Shamus and Woodies links on "Andy's Models" page. Along a link to "The Gauge". If you would like you site linked, feel free to give it to me.

    Here are the discriptions of the 3 maine sites:
    www.geocities.com/droid144 Jessica's and My Personal Life
    www.geocities.com/rockislandline2000 Rock Island Line (Of Course!)
    www.geocities.com/kf4jqd2002 Ham Radio

    Thanks for reading. If there is a dead link. PLEASE let me know!

    Andy

    Less than three months away and you don't have a "Place" yet ???? My wife would have been freaking - we had to book our site ten months b4hand.

    We should swap links!!! I'll include the Rock Island one, and you can include mine. Details below.

    Good luck with the move, Andy!

    I just finished mine - a LOT of work!!!

    And I only moved 7 miles, from Bettendorf to Davenport!

    But I'm sure you will enjoy the area - and maybe someday get over the mountain to Bryson City and meet Tyson.

    My time in the Smokies was from 1953-1965. I lived in Franklin, Asheville, Waynesville (Lake Junaluska), and mostly in Cherokee (went to school in Bryson City). It's like Camelot - perfect any time of the year! Wish I could go back .....

    Of course, a lot has changed since '65 (The tourists were gone from Cherokee after the summer and fall leaves - no casinos - so was a nice small town to grow up in.)


    Glad you are keeping up the RI site - and don't y'all convert to Southern or CSX once you get to the South - y'hear ??!!

    Come to think of it, Andy, DON'T go to see Tyson - a bad influence if I've ever heard one!

    ;)


    Great photographer and modeler, though......

    And ONE of these days, I'm sure he will see the light - of a ROCK ISLAND locomotive (say an E6A in silver Rocket scheme with a Mars light) !!!

    :D

    The Rock Island vs The Southern

    Well Guys,

    The Rock will aways be in my heart! The only reason I am doing the Southern, my Grandfather work there as an engineer before he left for Africa during WWII. Besides that. N scale Rock Island is harder to find than Southern! :(

    Andy

    Question: Why in hell are N scale locomotives and rolling stock are the same price than HO?:eek: :confused:

    Andy they sell more HO than N, volume in other words is one of the reasons.

    Andy:
    It's a wonder N gauge stuff doesn't cost MORE than HO; it's more effort to put the detail on. Have you checked the price of Z lately?
    As well as lower production runs, there's just as many parts in an N model as HO (except for some of the really fancy HO) and it takes as much time to assemble them. Since the parts are more delicate, they probably waste more. It's not until you go up the scale to O that the amount of material used has an effect, and I suspect that it's not that much.
