Re: Decals

In regards to vinyl if what you want is not to complicated railroad wise, you can always go to one the local 'quickie' sign shops and have them cut it for you. They accept 'almost' every kind of file format for cutting. I usually just use PowerPoint. Russ

Re: Machinable Material Update ( Caboose progress )

I do a lot of cnc woodwork and when I get a piece that is giving me some fuzz on the cuts I use a sanding mop from these guys for my cleanup. I use mostly the 320 grit for the cleanup.

Re: Speaking of Train Mountain

To the group, The Mountain Gazette is a members only publication. As reported Train Mountain is in the transition from one server group to another so things are way out of date on the website. The old server group was very uncooperative with updates etc,. The new group is much better to work with an...
