Can we all just call them Duplex’s and have a beer and just calm down.

I don’t have a dog in this fight.....but having a beer sounds like a good idea to me and I’d be happy to join you.

Re: RANT THREAD?

When I’m in a similar situation....my wife accuses me of using “railway esperanto!”

Re: 3/4" scale Dinky

Technically Dinky is Not 3/4” scale. It is a 1” scale model of a 3’ 6” gauge (narrow gauge) locomotive.

Re: Oil Firing 3/4" Scale

I don’t think firing with oil would work for me...it keeps falling off the shovel.
