    Hi Lee,
    Don't know if you can help me. I endeavor to do 3 rail mid fifty's. You have demonstrated a bunch of knowledge in this area especially in vehicles in this time frame.
    I can put my hands on a dept. 56 Graceland unit including the Elvis Pink Cadillac. Only desire the pink double fin. My questions.

    What is the scale of the Cad? Will it fit into my 50's scale layout? Will it add "Rock and Roll" I lov the fifty's.

    As your time permits, any and all comments from other readers are appreciated.

    Best Regards


    PS 1st post on the this site.

    trying to fabricate a battery seems excessive. if it isn't something I could do (and that certainly isn't), then best just to drop it. thanks for trying.

    Thanks Lee, just sent him an email a few minutes ago so i'm hoping he can help out. God i hope he can find another one. I'm still kind of kicking myself for not pre-ordering it when they were new. Thanks for the help.

    Hi Mr. Willis,

    I need your help. I read your post from back in october about how your friend Don Jones found a 3rd rail jawn henry steam turbine with the extra auxiliary tender in the 3 rail configuration for you. I've been on the hunt for one of those for about 2 years now. I would've ordered it from 3rd rail when it came out but was still paying off the 3rd rail GS-4 4449 from the previous year. My question to you is can your friend find another jawn henry in the 3 rail configuration with the auxiliary tender for me? Or is it possible you may know someone who has one that may be willing to sell it? It won't be a display piece, i plan to run it. I'm part of the chicagoland lionel railroad club in new lenox and we have monthly open houses throughout the year except in the summer. We have 2 open houses in december and i'd really like to wow the crowd with this engine if i can find one in time. any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks for your time.

    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.
    check my fresh post on the oScale board for information
    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 [email protected]

    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."
