    Wrong! The older camera has a card but Microsoftbrains doesn't recognize it. The new one doesn't have a card, nor does my cell phone, nor does the new computer. That's an obsolete item. You must use a modern USB cord. But again MSN Windows 10/11 doesn't recognize equipment that was not originally approved. So I must down load up to FOUR different down grades at over $100 each to 'maybe' be able.
    My two choices are to take those units to WallFarts and copy to a CD and hopefully be able to copy from there. Only the new computer does that. For a couple pics it isn't cheap.
    My other choice I've discovered is the camera used for video conferences connected to the PC. I can copy to the hard drive, transfer to 'Pictures' to share. Of course it's meant for a range of two feet so decent HO/N scale is impossible.
    Of course the two local shops are Total Fanatic's for Windows 10/11 and consider those that want reliable windows 7 aren't worth helping.
    It's nice in the CSA. :oops:

    Take your 'Windoze' out of 'S' mode and you can use any programs on it. :whistle:

    Windows 10/11 comes locked into 'S' mode. It is MSN native and will only allow you to use MS approved programs. :mad: You can 'unlock S mode' and it will allow you use any programs you like... just like Windows 7. ;)

    There are a slew of videos on YouTube on how to do it !(y)(y)

    More track laying supplies were in order. Between the track gages and rail roller my turnouts should improve. Fingers crossed.

    What's the name and model of your digital camera? Pretty much every digital camera since day one have a card slot for removable memory cards.

    That middle parking space seems like it needs a Batmobile in it.;)

    It's a little bigger than N but works and is out there. This one came from a set I saw at Target. The other two vehicles (a bat cycle and jokermobile) were too far out of scale to use. Was maybe $6 or $7 bucks.

    Finally got a decoder for my Kato GG1. Should have got it sooner when they were cheaper. Anyway, now that our Ntrak club has gone to all DCC I can now use it to power my Concor corrugated side passenger train. The switch to all DCC took several years and was necessitated by the fact our Aristo Craft radio throttles were showing their age and becoming less than dependable. We do retain some analog capability if it should become necessary. Also picked up two additional Roundhouse Overland passenger cars for my old time train. Finding these in PRR paint and at a very reasonable price made the purchase a no brainer.

    Those Pony Clamps are fantastic for building perfectly squared corners and perpendicular bracing for layout and module bench work.

    I used to have some three times that size. Great for 2x4s but these should be good for todays kind of little work.
