This forum appears to be settling back down to what it was before all the ruckus that happened. That is a good thing that has caused me to want to participate again. My reasons for dropping out were misrepresented by one of the departed individuals for their own purposes and rather than drag things out, I chose to find better ways to spend my time.

I'm tempted to join the new one, but haven't been able to bring myself to do it yet. I check it to see how things are going though. So far I do not enjoy the tone of things and have no desire to get in the middle of it. I have a low tolerance for some of the childish comments and statements being made.

There seems to be a calm atmosphere here that is conducive to discussing trains and that is a very good thing in my view. If I want drama, I will go somewhere else.

Art; first of all it's good to see you back here. I've missed your posts and photos of that beautiful layout of yours.
I'm only on this forum and throughly enjoy it. I do check OGR on the 1st of the month to see updates on Eliot's layout (Bigboy4005). That's the huge layout in Mn. However he hasn't posted in 2 months and I'm wondering if he's ok?

Spence, Eliot had stated a week or so ago that he is having issues with his hands that is slowing things down on the layout and preventing him from posting much.

Welcome back, Art, Missed your postings and feared you'd permanenly left MTF but glad to learn that's not the case.
Hope that others who ceased posting during the turbulent times you stopped will likewise eventually return because not only is this forum informative and helpful, but as you say, it has an atmosphere conducive to our fabulous hobby.

A heard a phrase from my consulting days: "Self admiration society."

Sometimes written sarcastic humor is misunderstood without the accompanying vocal inflections.

Elliot is fine. He just posted an hour ago. I've been to his house. Yes the layout is unreal.

Scales Modeled: Nothing modeled, O gauge trains though
Well my summer hiatus is about over. Time for fall, winter and indoor activities again. Hit the Train Club last weekend, first time in several months, felt good.

Glad to see the self admiration club move on...

Hello again Vern and good to see you back Art!!

We used to call it a mutual admiration society.
