    The 'Contest Modeler' was one of my favs... Especially this line-

    <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>...This may be one reason the contest models are not used as operating units. By the time a complete train is built, not enough years left to build a layout. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    STEAM MODELER-Brass is boss!, Brass is beautiful! Looks down on Diesel modelers. Generally have many
    unpainted shiny brass models. These usually don't run well but they tell everyone, I didn't buy them to run only
    display, don't they look good on the shelf? Postings usually end with "It takes a man to run Steam, anybody can
    drive a diesel" License plates say something like " I play with choo-choos". Operating sessions consist of seeing
    how many coal cars the model can pull. Usually no problem getting running time as most models are on the
    workbench being worked on. Everyone knows steam requires a good deal of maintenance just like the real
    ones....

    My license plate does not say "I play with choo-choos"

    ------------------
    When in doubt, empty your magazine.

    They can't get that many letters on there after the long word "Connecticut."
