Re: TT-Tracks

My latest package from TiTTan Downunder arrived. Only 10 days. Not bad. Not as good as the miracle 5 day delivery just before Covid hit, but not to be sneezed at.
Now I have a supply of trucks for myself(and others) to carry on car modifications.

I belive the Camo unit is a fantasy scheme aimed at the wargaming market.

Re: Nanaimo Spring Meet

You're right Bill, top frog should be permanently connected to top rail and bottom frog to bottom rail. The Guittar case never gets old. One of the best layouts ever of any scale...pure genius.

Re: Future BCSME Setups

A topic we lightly touched upon back in 2019 has come to the fore. Insurance. Back in 2019 we talked about being a 100% NMRA group and using the NMRA Insurance available to those groups.
