    Sorry about that! I just thought that was blue text. Duh!

    POLITICAL CONTENT! BAN IT IMMEDIATELY IF NOT SOONER. RED MEANS DEMOCRAT! BLUE MEANS . . . DEAD???

    I think. And I'm just joking! REALLY!!!!!

    I have so much steam to blow off about this guy that Chernobyl would be considered a minor incident, like a fuse blowing when Uncle Bob plugs five refrigerators into a single 16 gauge extension cord.

    I've held my piece (or peace) about him far too long. His trees were simply ludicrous; his Red Rock Canyons on the JJJ&E were worse. I lived in Red Rock Canyon country for nearly 20 years, and never saw anying like his ABSOLUTELY ACCURATE COLORS--REMEMBER I TAUGHT COLOR AT TUFTS DENTAL SCHOOL FOR 20 YEARS!!!!!!!!

    Oh well, every community has its idiot savant. I used to think Rob de Rebel was ours; now I wish he actually were, as he was a whole lot saner than PSG.

    So, seriously, put him on Moderated Status for a while? The message would be pretty simple: "Bob, we at Trainboard can't rely on your posts not to harm Trainboard, so we are putting you on Moderated Status."

    That's all. And yes, I'm being vindictive and wicked, perhaps beyond your own inclinations. But it's here in the Crummy.:tb-cool::tb-cool::tb-cool::tb-cool:

    Tell us what you REALLY think, Pete....don't hold back now...

    You're among friends here- what is said in the Crummy, STAYS in the Crummy.

    BTW- About the idiot savant comment- drop "savant", add "blithering" in front of the remaining word, and it would be more correct.

    No Novocaine. Just Poligrip his fingers together so he can't solicit pupils for his private tutoring services.

    What are you talking about, you insane meanie-head? I've been to Red Rock Canyon. It looks EXACTLY like garden barkdust painted with glossy oil-based red paint.


    OH... arrrhgh... (scuffle scuffle scuffle) ... sorry, folks, I was just possessed by PSG for a moment.

    Don't forget the 400+ scale tons of excess red ballast on the tracks passing the roundhouse!Shot in sepia, black and white, puce and pink and a very dodgy RGB mix from 17 similar but unique angles for your viewing pleasure.

    Just as an aside and referencing Bob's yard. How in the hell is he going to neatly ballast ten lines of track that look at least 3' deep.

    The operative word is "neatly". He hasn't shown us he can do even ONE line yet, much less ten.:tb-rolleyes:

    I am glad someone added this category to the poll:
    "They are just NASTY, NASTY GIRL!"

    In my particular dialect of Sinhalese this is a synonym for treepissa, which, of course, means "I am crazy for your trees!"

    Nice to see such support, and I am happy to let you all share in my modeling awesomeness.

    I'm reporting this! Inappropriate content - it's a thinly disguised photo of two dancing strippers.

    :D

    How could it be? It's a stained glass window from a nearby church, a church dedicated to my awesome stand of trees on top of a basalt column formation.
