      The basic rub; Is Mr. Helpful putting results here at LSC or does he mine LSC for clicks on his pages?

       

      Rooster seems to object to the re-directs to His Pages ... and has said so many times.

      Along the way Mr. Helpful decided it was his job to correct others and to tell us how to behave, which he doesn't do so well.

       

      On a side note; Mr. Helpful made a big hoopla about leaving another site, I never saw one public thread asking him to stay.....

      Mr Helpful? Does that make you Mr. Nothelpful?

      Click counts? Really?

       

      Yeah, he could put all that stuff on LSC, but then you would complain about all that stuff ON LSC.

      Get a life.

       

      THIS is why I am only here when someone calls me.

      Ain't got time for stupidity.

      I left soapsuds site due to MASSIVE stupidity.

      Jeebus, and here I was hoping to learn somethin‘

      Greg's website is an excellent repository of information, and I always appreciate that he host my "vignettes".  I am currently working on a new one about an old product, so hopefully the site can be put back online after a little while.  My thanks to Greg;

      Well, you have confirmed a few things John...

      First, if you have ever been to my website, you see there is no advertising, no trackers, no nothing except the site itself keeps tracks of hits on a page. This information goes nowhere...

      So what possible motivation would "mining for clicks" be? Ego? And take this abuse? Are you so hardened in your outlook that a good, helpful person cannot exist?

      So thanks for the negativity, which anyone without a chip on their shoulder could see I am not mining for clicks...

       

      I direct people to my pages for several reasons:

      1. When I refer to a link on my page, that is because I have a bunch of information, all written up nicely, and rather than retype it, a simple link is helpful.
      2. There are many other pages with related information, and you can explore these much easier that using search on LSC, most of my pages have a main page and sub pages, there are 9 sub pages for various facets on the heavyweights.
      3. Unlike forums, where a thread with helpful information often gets clogged with off topic responses, or even hateful ones (like yours), the pages can stay in order and coherent.

       

      By the way, I received many emails about leaving, but not a thread on it, why? Because of jerks like you, many people were afraid to put their statements on the forum, especially when one of my harassers was a moderator.

       

      ..  and just for you, for your 10 year tirade against me (I have the emails to prove it from 2009), The site is now offline to non-registered users. You indeed are the straw that broke the camel's back, I have too many other fun things to do in life than endure this.

      I exed this out as it wasn't entirely appropriate. My apologies.

      Why cant we all play nice?

      'Ere, 'Ere.  As we used to say Up North.  A little humility in the posting might help - making it sound like a boast isn't helpful.

    • dunno, maybe we don't follow the only rule on the forum?

       

      Sorry to have offended everyone in my poor attempt to be helpful and share some information I gleaned by working over the last 3 weekends on these buggers.

      Well, maybe not ha ha!

       

      I've just completed some extensive learning, and a number of mods on Aristo heavyweight passenger cars.

      Body mounts, improving the trucks both old and new versions, reducing friction, improving the suspension, lots of stuff.

      This link takes you to the home page of NINE pages of information about these cars.

      This is the home page, and at the bottom of the page there are links to 8 more pages, including several of Ted's vignettes.

      Spent the last 2 weekends making these buggers close coupled and running right on my nasty S curves, etc.

       

      link removed, and pages hidden from the public courtesy of the reception, I don't need this.

       

      If anyone wants the info, email me.

       

      enjoy!

       

      Greg

    • Short boxcars? Well Heartland made some, Kalamazoo made some. Aristo made some 2 axle jobbies, LGB makes short 2 axle jobbies. If you don't mind some bashing, the Bachmann Big Haulers cars can sometimes be had cheep, and they could be cut down.

       

      I would have to go measure the USA American series (1:24th scale) boxcars, but I think they are right around that length (12 inches).

       

      The old Roundhouse boxcars are short too, but they are 1:32nd scale.

      Rooster, I really like the viewliner baggage car, and I look forward to the finished product. What scale are you making it in, and what trucks are you using?
