      Noel, very nice layout.  I really like the swing bridge, however if those fish are 1/24 scale they are whales.

      Thanks  Colin C.

      I kind of wish I make the bridge another foot longer for the Tug and Barge to go thru.  I only have about 2 inch on either side of the barge to pass thru.

      I think i found the problem with Greg.E. help.  Doing a test and see if it works.

      Noel,

      Do me a favor. Embed one of your videos after this reply all by itself, no text, just the video, Thanks. I want to see the code you are using to embed a YouTube video.

      Fixed, anyone who has a login can see my profile now... for anyone who needs proof....

       

      I'm disgusted about how people pile on for such trivial things... "OH YOU HAVE AN AD BLOCKER", "you are stealing from Bob"...

       

      maybe some people from MLS remember when the owner needed a new server.... guess who contributed $$ (and the server was never purchased)...

       

      I don't need to complain about people that don't pay at a certain level, and I don't need to tell the world about my affairs, but accusing me of hurting Bob and the forum and not even spending $25 bucks a year by making these assumptions and "piling on" the accusatory posts with thanks is indicative of a lot of things... all bad.

       

      There's something about casting stones in the good book...

       

      Greg

       

       

      Yes Master Greg , casting the first stone is in the good book and it is defined as "The first to CRITICIZE or cast the first stone".  However the good book also gets deeper than that Greg and states "So when you GIVE one should not announce it with trumpets and shouting in the streets".

       

       

      BD would rather we not talk religion on LSC either and you have NEVER done both?

       

       

      BTW what is MLS ???

      I do pap! It's the one you properly embedded ....You did it !!

       

      ... Hot Damn.. and a bunch of Horse Puppy's.

      Ok ..found the problem. It was a Google thing with my win 10 setting I have changing the embed copy that Greg. had me check on.  Guess Google did some changes when they took over u-tube. I use to be able to show video with our old win 8.1 just fine until the up-grade.  So all computer setting are not the same as we found out. Found the "src=" was missing in front of the 'https but, embed code in front of it was there and rest of the embed behind the httpl was there. Go Fig. why the first part of the https was missing?  All our videos marked plublic.

      Ok.. now happy, with extra dots ... . .  to confuse the servers. lol.  

       

      P.S Found out this was mircosoft thing with Win 10 upgrade.

      I have both ghostery and adblock plus on FULL for this site

       

      You don't recall BD's request NOT to use ad blockers?  He does a great job at keeping them un-intrusive. Every add that shows up while you browse the site puts a little money toward the cost of operating it.

       

        This is the only website on the internet where I will not, ever, never, use Adblock Plus. I will do anything and everything I can, no matter how small, to help Bob McCown out with this site. If I have a few spare seconds I click on the ads to hopefully help out a little more.

       

         edit: I wish I could type right the first time!

       

      so both of you guys are Gold level? You spend the extra bucks each year?

      let me answer, neither of you two are even silver ($50 a year) or bronze ($25 a year)

      I pay $100 a year, so the very few ads a gold member sees is NOT costing Bob anywhere near the $100 a year I donate.

      (anyone can see your "level" by clicking on your name)

      So shut the hell up about who is short-changing Bob.

      Greg

      Wow....Ok Buddy

    • Thanks guys for the comments.  I'm set up for a two day tour on both Ho and Garden R.r. for the Narrow Gage Conv. in Sept. But.... thinking this is going to be the last.  I've been working in the garden R.R. for two months now on repair a lot of old and new things that is kind of getting to old to keep it up..  It got out of hand when we built this with about 15 guys and now only three left and they are tired to.. lol.  We started this layout in 1997 and it grew... that now have use intercoms to keep track of two or three trains running on the same tracks.  We build so much animation items and A,B & C throttle in blocks due to tack power that it can if like to take up to 5 guy just to run it and still lose a trains. We did pick up about 150 ft of 2" X 6" plastic recycle boards ( Some are 16 foot long.)  to replace the above ground parts of the layout but, that is going to be a big job now with most member gone.  Might be a good time to get out of this Gage and just stick to the Ho build that is easy to run and a computer can run most of it.

      This video thing and keep up with changes is not good for us old guys that past 39 and going on over 80 plus..  lol. Noel & Jane
