Hi. My name's Bob and I am a member of The 48 Club......Hi Bob!
@baltimoretrainworks- I might steal your artwork and hang it on a wall. I hope it's not copyrighted
Hi Bob! Not at all use it, I'm still working on the By Laws of the 4x8 Club and other such things that one has with a club, might even make up some type of membership card. I do need to figure out what font that is, I stole it from online and cut and pasted the letters to make it in PrintShop, it would have been a whole lot easier just downloading the font! I see however what this discussion is about seems to be falling on deaf ears. By hate I think we mean tone deafness, condescending ( however unintentional they may be ) remarks and the assumption that many who model in 4x8 some how don't understand the limitations of it, on the contrary we do and make every attempt to use that to our advantage or to mitigate it as best we can or just ignore it and do what we want to. Everyone of us in 3 rail have at some point have dealt with some of the scale rivet counters sneering at us as a group but then some go about doing the same thing to their own brethren. We don't need or want a pat on the head and a "Well at least you tried but blah, blah, blah..." I'm fortunate enough to have a bit of space in my basement for a larger layout, 8x12 but even that has horrendous limitations that according to some posters here would make it better if I went smaller in scale. I don't want to go on a rant and maybe I have already but to tell someone they are in the wrong scale or that they can't run a scale Big Boy on a 4x8 (like we don't already know that) doesn't seem very sympathetic and certainly isn't helpful. And for the record I do have a 4x8 that I set up after I dismantled my layout and hope to be able to incorporate it into the living area of my basement remodel so I do have a dog in this fight. Well I have to go, my wife's making kielbasa and kishka and I have to turn the crank on the sausage stuffer.
