    The Y2K computer glitch hit Norway's national railroad company a year later than expected. The bug was discovered when none of the company's new 16 airport express trains or 13 highspeed, long-distance Signature trains would start early in the morning of Dec. 31. The computers on board the trains apparently did not recognize the date, something not anticipated by experts who checked the systems thoroughly last year. Sunday's problem was quickly solved on a temporary basis by resetting the computeres to Dec. 1, 2000, and the trains started upon ignition

    When the clock struck 12, my model trains wouldn't run either. Not because of Y2K, but because of my pet cat, who thought a pile of gravel was a pile of cat litter [​IMG] While enjoying himself, he knocked over a few rail cars, and somehow disconnected a few wires here and there causing a problem. I'm still thinking of way to get him back..any ideas? [​IMG]
