    This might be getting a little too political, but that brings up another good point in the sense of the "ultimate" people behind the terrorist attacks - by that I mean the hijackers themselves - were American citizens.

    Hey Guys!

    I was working on my layout and got to thinking:

    On my model railroad which I am building, and for which I come to The Gauge to discuss, the Little Plastic People never make political statements, they never display a dislike for an entire country however subtle the display may be, and they never ever show any smug superiority of ideology or intellect. My model railroad is very enjoyable.

    Thanks!
    Gary

    Ron I appreciate your comments!



    I'm not sure what you mean here CaNadiaN. The hijackers were mostly Saudi nationals, none were American citizens, although they had been living in the country for a while prior to the attack.


    Gary, you make a good point about the hobby being a nice escape from the stresses of the real world!

    Thanks folks for keeping this thread civil! :thumb:

    I guess I should put some plastic army men along side the old lionel military train so they don't still the missiles.

    However the only thing that would really be a problem is if the dog made a jump on to the new layout I have started. That would make a mess pretty quick.

    Lets just hope everyone does enough that the trains stay safe after all if someone wants to get to them they will. It is too broad of a system to protect.
