The pavers will collect all your dropped and missing screws conveniently into the little crevices before they have a chance to roll too far away!

Re: How to convince the Mrs to let you keep rolling stock inside...

I saw this in New Zealand in 2012. It was I believe fairly new at the time. I've lost all my notes from that time so I don't know who the builder is but I could find out.
The builder is John Romanes, and unfortunately I was just notified that he passed away 18 months ago.

Re: WTB Clippard MJQC-B4B4

This is just my own experience, but I haven't had any problems with insufficient air flow with the smaller connectors. I am using 7/8" dia cylinders on 2 1/2" scale trucks, and they really don't need a lot of air. The system can pressurize very quickly. I am thinking I have 8 braking trucks plus a c...
