    I and my son layed track today.Got the turnouts right, and no derailments.I had one problem that was my own doing.We are useing flex track and I couldn't find any holes to drive naails into.Then I turned one over and lo and behold there were holes underneath the track. Things went much fasrer then.Tomorrow the dash nine gets its frist road test.I've alreadly ran a FA own it to check it out.Maybe I can start ballasting tomorrow.Not a chance.I'am going to run some trains.

    Hey John! That's a "thumb's up" for that one. When you say you've laid track, does that mean "all the way round"?

    Watch them trains run! :D

    Way to go John. You know we need pics and you have to run trains for a good week before you think about ballasting. ;)
