We then replaced it with a flat screen TV and a DVD player, we set up a drive-in movie on that corner, and have showed DVD layout tours ever since. Great idea, especially with a lot full of autos and the trains going by.

In the end, that's what really matters!

FWIW, I used the "program on main" / loco #1 method, which allowed pretty quick settings, and reliably showed the existing CV settings.

This topic has to be re-mastered every time the site owner makes an upgrade to the software. For this incarnation the procedure is...
Grab the embed code from the YouTube video (directly on the video): right click in OPERA (copy embed code); right click in FireFox (Copy embed code); right click in Chrome (get embed code);right click in IE (get embed code).
In the reply window click on "insert/edit video" button in the top row (looks like a movie frame), and select "Embed".
Paste the embed code (copied from YouTube) in the box and click "OK".
That's what we all found works now. Some day down the road we will have to find a new way for new software, but for now this works. Have fun! less

Turquoise, because they didn't have enough of one color to paint the thing, so they just threw several colors in the bucket, and that's what came out. Happens all the time.
That's how my house got painted the color it is.
