    Hello Lee,

    I found you through Google searches about 'slot car' boats that seem to be running around on top of water where no tracks are visible.

    Could you explain how you did this?

    I can't seem to find any products or 'how to'.

    Could you point me in the right direction?

    Thank you and Happy Holidays!

    How you doing Lee it has been a long time
    I have had some major health issues but am doing pretty good now. I have been given a second chance at doing Train Display work for the city of Hinton Railroad Days and I am going to take the chance with what little i have left of my collection.

    hope to hear from you soon

    Hi Lee. Tried to reach you through the O Gauge Forum but after a little detective work found you here. When looking at the thread about your layout, I was very interested in your use of Atlas track with Fastrack switches. Seems like it might be the best of both worlds. Do you have any close up pictures of the transition and any tips on how to make the track and switches look good and work well together? You can send your response to my email if you would

    In the "old days at OGR, you posted a clever, detailed way of obtaininf proper spacing for vehicles on super streets. Can you provide me with that thread. Thanks, Paul "Soxfan."

    Lee I was just looking at OGR and someone commented that they would like to meet you and wish that you were still on the forum.

    Rich posted that they are the reason you are not, that they messed up your ad, etc. he took full responsibility.

    A couple of other people also commented that they miss your posts there. I thought that it was significant that Rich took the blame and did not simply hit delete.

    Glad that you are here and always enjoy your posts. Most informative and fun too.

    Let me know if you're leaning towards the Lincoln - I could help you out with an X-plan friends & family discount.

    Hi Lee. We do not know the other, but I saw an amazing photo taken of your nineteen fifties "main street" model while googling for images from my childhood "time", specifically 1955 or so. Up came your amazing image. I am a storyteller here on Aquidneck Island in Rhode Island (the island on which the well known town of Newport is located). What sets me apart from other storytellers is that I tell tales from the fifties era, and read books read from that time to kids and the elderly in nursing homes. I bring with me artifacts from those times and pretend I am still living in that era. I am in need of some great photos from the town I supposedly live in. The photos I will show the kids to acquaint them with what they world looked like then from the cars to the trains to the storefronts. One or two of the photos could become a backdrop for my storytelling chair so it looks like I'm sitting in town. When I saw what you had created I immediately hoped I could find you and ask you if you could take some high res photos of your 50's village scenes and let me use them in my story telling events. If it would be best for me to travel down and photograph your model myself, I could do that sometime this summer if you gave me permission. Anyways, the simplest of course would be to ask if you have a nice copy of the photo (if a digital file) so that I could enlarge it. Well, thanks, Lee. My email is, and my membership name here (I joined so I could write you) is tin cup, the name of my art studio. Tim

    Lee...thanks for the follow-up check on ad blocking. I actually took another members advice and downloaded a blocking program and so far it seems to work...

    Hi Lee,

    I just saw an interesting article in Model Railroad Hobbyist magazine about a guy by the name of Ed Richardson making his own driveable vehicles using a radio from a drone, and servos used for steering. The magazine is free to download. Thought you might be interested.
