Sounds like how we do politics here in the US. BigGrin

I have almost all Märklin and mostly HO, although I do have a small number of Z gauge trains!
I have models from Era I to Era VI, but I try to focus on Eras I & III. Whoops, that one got away from me. Let's just say I focus on cool trains, regardless of the particulars :-)
So many trains and so little time.

I, my brother and his brother in law all have model trains

My father worked for the NSW government railways from the age of fifteen and we always travelled by train because we never had a car most of the time

My brother in law simply liked trains and it has allowed him to use his electrical knowledge to run trains fully automatically using discarded 24v relays he got from telstra or what used
to telecom

He's an electrical genius and builds all his own power contollers but not the supplies

After spending a work week testing software, reading technical documentation and dealing with a nasty commute, my little BR 89 (30000) and BR 81 take me back to a simpler and relaxing world!

Oh, so you live in my world too. Cool

Some people ask why I prioritize the mechanical beauty of my trains over the software possibilities which digital control provides? Because I do software all week long and my trains are my escape from that digital world into something real and something that I can actually see and control. Cool

Well indeed, digital world is software, trains are hardware. Software does not help when we are starving, hardware helps.
CS 3 is a controller system from Märklin - not a central station.

I know that feeling... I wish I had more control over the trains I took to work every day.

When it happens a few hundred meters away from where I live, it takes a couple days to fix. When it happens on my layout, it takes me a couple of seconds to fix via the hand of God. BigGrin

To be fair to our infrastructure, it was 28C that afternoon...




I think this post is getting a little off track LOL

Had to look that one up - ain't Google grand ... ThumpUp ThumpUp ThumpUp

That is what comes of living on a join between two seismic plates ... no that doesn't appear to have caused the derailment ...
