    People are rushing down to the station as word spreads that the crew is pushing a flatcar with the skull of a prehistoric "Rodentus Giantgantus" on it back to town. Seems one of the pulpwood crews unearthed it. With (in n-scale) 2 foot teeth and a 18 foot skull, how would you like to find this sucker in your pantry? :D

    "News" Lawson, editor of the Tellico Gap Tribune switched to his other camera with the telephoto for this closer shot. You can barely make out "No Fingers" on the other side of this monster's head as he waves back at Lawson! :eek:

    Thats really neat Tyson. Does it come to life in the dark or does "no fingers" keep watch with a coal oil lamp.

    Eeek! A MOUSE!!!! :D Well, I'm guessin' things are never gonna be the same down in Tellico Gap once the world learns of the discovery of the Saber Toothed Mouse. Y'all should brace yourself for scientists, news hounds, fortune seekers, and folks who got tired of looking for the Loch Ness Monster. Time to build a couple of hotels Tyson; you're gonna need 'em! :)
    Lots of fun!
