    I like your thought and would go for it if not for my dad. He doesn't trust the internet much these days after the events I've come to know as "Trojan2" happened on my computer (Don't ask:D ) if you can type up a REALLY long report on why I should do what you say, it might change my dad's mind.

    P.S. kinda brought this thread from the bottom of the pile didn't you? I was surprized to see it back up on the last 10 posts list:D

    Reviewed the posts

    :) MM... Yeah, your right. I did bring it from the bottom but saw that I didn't respond to your question regarding editing your photo's...

    Yes, my father too is un-educated regarding all things computer. He aquired a Digital camera and he called me up asking me a million questions on how it works, what to do with it, etc. I built out a computer for him but he won't turn it on. When we go visit him, I bring my laptop and show him web sites on the internet. I am thinking now maby with the new camera he will have to start using it but I have to go over and show him how to hook up the camera... :D

    It seems you have a system already for posting stuff so I guess if it is not broken, no sense in fixing....

    announce1 TTYL..

    Some but I don't consider them good.

    This is of the train crossing the river in Dachshundville:

    This is the latest 'test' shot from the high bridge area. I'm adding scenery to this area:

    Sadly, I just sold all of the CNW passenger cars I had. If you want individual pics of those they are what I used for the auction and are not on the layout. They were standard Riverossi cars.

    Custom??

    announce1 WOW
    Johnny! I didn't know Riva made the pullmans! You must have modded these a lot??
    An I immediately noticed the Forest car! WOW... I bought Riva's but currently the only ones available or that I found are the Roomette, Baggage and Observation...
    I have to ask a (err) stupid question... N Gauge?? The detail has me fooled!!??
    Ok Johnny, I went back on some of your posts and your HO. Great stuff though!! I am limited with N Gauge and C&NW Passenger Cars. I did find this set on eBay. (see previous post about 3 back)... Nice Con-Cor set. I have not found this anywhere!!??

    You sold them.... (finding my box of kleenex) sob...:cry:

    Yeh Sorry Herb, I forgot to mention I'm HO scale. The car were all stock on the outside. All I did was put body mounted Kaydees on, weight them to NMRA standards, give them correct 36" metal wheelsets and tint and curtain the windows. I looked at the set you posted earlier. Have you considered painting your own? CNW is a relatively easy scheme to do. And yes, I did sell them.

    Thank you for the compliments!!
