And then I derailed. Again.

I admit freely that it’s a good thing I never tried to become a train engineer. According to Railworks I would have caused millions of dollars in damage and buried many people in rubble and twisted metal. It seems I have a habit of crashing into other trains or derailing them outright. The first goal was to couple with another train. That went poorly. I misjudged the speed and the distance and to make a long story short there was a mighty boom. I next misjudged how to set the junctions and part of my train down one track and part of it down another. A train does not exist very well across two tracks and it toppled over. And this was after I’d been driving it for over 30 minutes so imagine the gnashing of teeth. It was total disappointment. Obviously I have some reading to do in order to understand the controls. And I probably should go around […]

A toolbox for my trains

I have pieces and parts everywhere. I think I need to clean this up before the Mrs. gives me a boot to the head. I went to Lowe’s to get a toolbox to store the trains and the track. It must be my lucky day since I found them on sale for $2.50. I thought it was a misprint but it was the right price. I snagged three of them for other jobs. This is going to work really well. I can store the track in the bottom and the trains in the slots at the top. Have train, will travel.
