    Robin, are you working on a mushroom layout and a modular both at once?

    Dash, the corner Ntrak module was actually built before I began to go the mushroom way. I just need a couple more industries to go on it to finish it.

    Hi Robin,

    I continue to be amazed at your rate of production!

    Have you seen this link:

    http://www.horailroad.com/b_online_clinics.shtml

    It is a nice little paper pattern for making skids of concrete (cinder) block, and best of all, it's free :D

    Every time I see you do one of these it still amazes me Robin. But women's curling? Must of been a slow sports day. FRED

    Thanks folks for your kind words.
    Thank you Andrew for the link. I sure needed it.
    Dash, watching curling is like watching golf. At a very competitve level it can get quite exciting.

    No problem... I know it is HO scale, but you seem like a resourceful kind of guy ( :D :D :D ) so I figured you could make it work. ;)

    Yes, I could see how the fast sweeping action of young female athletes could be exciting. Thanks for pointing that out to me. ;) FRED

    You said it Dash.
    Here is the office and storage area and shows how I am making skids of concrete blocks based on the method from the link Andrew posted

    Thanks folks for your continuing encouragement.
    Next step is to make the corrugated steel roofing.
    I use the method shown by H.R. Lloyd in the December 1977 MR
    Put a piece of aluminum foil over a file and rub it with a scrap piece of balsa wood.
