Carrying a concealed weapon and across state lines, that is s federal
offense I believe.

BUt if the guy was too stupid to press charges then I would have to say got
the job done.

I can't help much with the drink but I can help with the moderator part...and will terminate this thread.

First, however, for the record, Florida does have a concealed weapons law and, yes, your friendly group moderator,owner does have one. He has a large cannon in his car at all times. Fortunately, he is friendly.

Now, having said that, that's also the last word on the subject...one of the few perks that the owner gets is the last word. Make no mistake...moderation awaits anyone violating this decree...we aren't going to debate weaponry on the STMFC...period.

Larry, are you threatening to threaten someone who was not
threatening you but may or may not actually have threatened
someone else twenty years ago?

I need a drink. Or a moderator. Or both.

Please try it on me and see where you end up.
Thank you

Those were the good old days, huh? When you could pack your heat with you,
across state lines, and nobody the wiser. Gets me choked up just thinkin'
about what we've lost... snif!

(I rode to Timonium once with someone who disclosed he had a .357 in the
glove box on the driver's side... just in case he had trouble with a toll

Fast? Certainly not.
Well, as the cringing operator at the time, and a person who has been 'really' uncomfortable operating other people's trains on other people's railroads, the reverse move of this beautiful string of brass cars was indeed performed at a snails' pace. Also, if I had derailed the train, Mike (who is bigger than I am) .....well...

I believe he opned a hobby shop in Colorado Springs, Suncoast or Sunbird
Hobbies. I knew him well, but was never a victim of his antics. I really liked
Hi-Country Brass when it first opened. Bought my first brass locomotive
there in 1978 or so.

Does not have to be threats with a weapon. In Florida it would have been an extra 10 years just to have it in your pocket or case. The way I read his email there was some implied threats there and that is against the law. I do not approve of what the thief did but the person must have felt threatened if he gave up a model.
Please try it on me and see where you end up.

There is a company that makes switches in HO scale.... He had a layout set up with a lot of

This is Steve Hatch and his company is Railway-Engineering http://www.railwayeng.com/. His turnouts and other special track work are things of mechanical beauty. All my #12 turnouts, a #8 double slip, and a small number of #8 and #6 turnouts (codes 81 and 55) were custom-made by Steve, and they are very reliable. The gauge-narrowing is a standard feature on these turnouts, and I can indeed reverse move through a diverging path a long heavy steam era freight cars without a solitary derailment. However, although I certainly have not made a study of it, so far I seem to also be able to do about the same with my Shinohara and Peco (staging) turnouts (the latter with styrene shims to narrow the guardrail flangeways ).

Thanks to Doug for preparing this scan, and of course Gene Green's work in compiling it in the first place. It will be interesting to monitor the number of times it's downloaded. I noted when doing so that there had been 22 previous downloads. Maybe in a few days Doug or someone could update us on this number, which may have some correlation with the number of "serious" (or deranged) members of this list.

Ancient Denver NMRA Convention

An interesting part was the display of a
brass collection of a guy who owned High Country Brass [ as I recall ].
Yes.... I still would like very much to know who this "guy" is. He was very active for some time in marketing brass by mail. In about 1982 or so, he took my money for a significant and expensive brass model, and cashed the check. However, despite a slew of following certified letters, and the supposed intervention by the Denver district attorney's office, I never received the model, nor received my money back. He still owes me.

Doug,
Thanks for making the handout available. Some parts went a little
screwy in the process but I'll download it and use it as a pattern to
recreate the handout and then it could use some additional
information based on some questions I have received.

Dick, I lived in San Diego at the time Bill Lambert had this problem and
personally knew the perpetrator---he had a felony background, but it is not the
same person that owned Hi-Country Brass in Denver in the 80's.
