So far inventoried 113 frieght cars (getting maybe half done my frieghts). Well I've catalogued them in the database. It actually takes longer to print the labels for their boxes and put the numbers onto the models - in some cases there is just no inconspicious place on an N scale car. My wife says she has a big bag of small tags on a sting like they use in stores - I"ll use those for the hard to label cars. I print up a tiny number (8 point) and stick it onto the bottom of the car, or the inside of a boxcar.
I picked up some micro slide switches to try out as a way to throw some N scale Atlas turnouts based on an idea I've seen posted elsewhere. I think this will work and I can't wait to try it out.

Resistance has proven futile.
I'm contemplating going DCC.
I had looked at it years ago, but then the price was too much - $500+ when I checked it out at train shows. I live in northern Canada and have never played with a DCC system - seen them o
