    Hi gaugers:
    Think this idea is wonderful and it has been great to watch y'all bring it together. Can't wait to have the time to make a piece of gauge rolling stock so i can run it at the train meets and see if i can shake out any local gauge members at the shows. Also, i need to make one so that there will be at least one S-gauge representation of the railline. We seem to be a rare breed here abouts!

    One problem, I have not been able to figure out my "number" so i can properly lable my car. Help!

    Regards,
    The Lone "S" Gauger

    Hi ho, silver bullet express, awwwwaaaayyyyy........

    Mike,
    I posted my first entry in the "Photos" section of the board. If you want you can add it to the equipment register on your site. If you need a better picture let me know, and I'll get a better one.
    Thanks...........

    I've seen it, 88, it looks great !!!

    And I just updated The Gauge Railway's OER to include the car and its pic..................

    (I've been sick the last couple of days, so you'll have to excuse my tardiness)

    PS - my Atlas undec six-bay covered hopper should arrive later this week for conversion to my first GAUG unit.

    Ken,

    Go to this site:

    http://www.heatherandmichael.com/prb/thegaugerailway.html

    It explains the numbering convention. It incorporates your member ID (mine is 212). Move your mouse over the "profile" button in a post that you've made and look in status bar at the bottom of your browser window. The end of the line will display "userid=999" where "999" is your member ID.

    Gauge Boxcar

    Here is the first Gauge Line boxcar for the WC & T RR. It was a cheapy from Industrial Rail, ($2.29) I opened a door, repainted conrail blue, all the data is not on yet but will be. (that stuff is hard to do in N Scale.) I would like to have it registered if I may, also if I posted this in the wrong spot let me know.
    Thanks
    Jim Marksberry:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Nice job Jim. I bow before your greatness.
    Don't worry about the data.....it was hard to do in HO scale too.

    Yeh, I'm planning on cheating a little bit. I'm getting some decals for MP covered hoppers, but only really need the numbers. So I'm going to use the data from those decals for my GAUG covered hopper that I'm working on.

    PS - your boxcar has been entered into the OER on my website.

    What would the number be for a loco? It would be a big surprise to you that I would do an industrial switcher :eek: :eek: :eek: P-K leasing, D.B.A. The Guage Railroad. After that sex scandel between Old Man Knudsen and Monica Lewinsen, the young Danish model, they about had to take his name off the leasing co. He denied it at first, then he finally admitted it, as he smiled, sitting back in his chair, smoking a cigar. He said, "This tastes good."

    :D :D :D
