Reply to "WHAT IS 3-RAIL SCALE?"

I was very interested in 3 Rail Scale when this specific forum was still part of the 3-Rail forum.  The early days of the 3-Rail Scale forum were a little contentious to say the least, but it has certainly calmed down quite a bit over the years. 

Yes, that's how I remember it as well.  I looked in on it, but decided that I didn't want to put up with the self-righteous shrieking about lobster claw couplers and oversized wheels ("Oh, the humanity..."  ).  So I stayed away and kept the Panhandle out of any discussion on it.

For the record, I think of the Panhandle as a scale model railroad that happens to operate on three rails.  Retaining the couplers and wheels is a practical nod to trouble-free operations.
