Charley, I have heard of you before and admire your work. Thank you for the kind words. I know what you mean about different "ideas" coming together, that's what I do. I have a "US built Garratt" which was once used on a Mexican mining road and now hauls ore in NM. It still has Euro-style buffers. Yep,the kickers have had fun with that one but I know that it is only "Garratt envy" so I run my lokie and don't worry about the consequences.
To butcher an old saw-"'Tis better to have built and screwed up than to never have built at all."
And on the subject of club layouts, Duane is right. At one show's layout tour, we walked out of a "magnificant" club's layout after a short visit and stayed a couple of hours at some fellow's 4 by 8 On30 layout. The club was trying to please everybody (except us) and the On30 guy was having fun and we did also. The theme was "I can do whatever I want" and it worked beautifully.

It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
