    title was supposed to be slowly starting

    ok. i am planning my layout right now. it will have a mix of bachmann ez track and atlas code 100. I hve been making my own buildings and a mountain. So far I have built a mountain/tunnel, station, cement factory, engine stall, cattle loading ramp, and i am currently working on a warehouse.

    I have built the station, cement, mountain, and the warehouse on a section of cardboard. Then, i will place the cardboard sections on the layout in the correct spot.

    i will try and get pics up asap.

    quick question: where can i get the switches for a control board?

    Someone told me about this place, http://www.demarelectronics.com/, They seem to have low prices. Radio shack prices are to high, IMO. I have not ordered from them yet. But the time is soon approaching.

    Yeah.. Radio Shack isn't what it used to be. They are restructuring, and raising their prices by A LOT to cover the costs of keeping all those parts in stock. Over the past 5 years their prices rose by 200%+.

    These days if I want to buy electronics parts, I do it on-line. :(
