    Love it.
    Attention to detail for sure. B)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Is that HO scale?


    It's like the train set in one of the Supermans where they use a tiny piece of Kryptonite to show what it will do to the model.

    That model is amazingly done.

    No it's not HO scale, I have forgotten what scale it is. The modern looking engines are about 18 - 20 or so inches long. They are very big model trains. The older engines are shorter.

    The different settings are the story of his life. The city is downtown Dallas in the early 60's.

    The drive in movie used to play "The Green Berets" with John Wayne, but since young children visit the setup they stopped showing it. He was a former Green Beret. He went to a boy's camp in Colorado and that's what the mountains represent.

    I wonder if it's Dallas 11-22-1963? Is there a man on the "Grassy Knoll"? That would make a precarious detail.

    He didn't put that in. Most people from that time in Dallas want to forget that horrible day in Dallas as we lost a president and it was very bad for Dallas.

    When the young kids come it to see it they give them a sheet of paper and they have to check off certain things they see. I took my grand kids to see it and they loved trying to find certain items besides seeing the trains operate.

    That is 100% understandable. That's awesome that he gives the kids a checklist. What fun that must be!

    Percussive maintenance is a *highly* underrated trouble-shooting tool.

    Or solution.

    Only if you get caught! That dude could probably crawl faster than that cop could run.

    Love the expression on his face! Priceless with that caption.

    I was on I405 in Bellevue WA and got popped at 168 mph. It was Bothell WA before I realized I was busted and pulled over. Went straight to jail. Bothell has really really small jail cells. Radios were pretty fast that night.

    Hehe....these conversations are usually told in person with only trusted friends. There was a time when I was....shall we say, a "bad boy".

    Most of them were me blowing by a radar trap at 120 mph or more in my old TA.

    That's the last I'll say about THAT!
