March 13, 2010 in St. Paul, Minnesota

The Tea Party people held a rally calling for the health care reform bill currently being considered in congress to be stopped. Republican U.S. representative Michele Bachmann was the guest speaker. The crowd was filled with signs and stickers for Bachmann and other Republican candidates.

Signs in this picture:
"SANU! for state Representative"
"WWII Combat Infantrymen NO Socialized Medicine"

Currently, these WWII combat infantrymen and all United States military veterans receive benefits from federal government social programs such as: health care from the government, education assistance from the government, government help with home loans, disability compensation from the government, pensions from the government, vocational training and employment services from the government, life insurance from the government and preferred placement in government jobs.

Another question for model railroaders…?

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Question by Mike M.: Another question for model railroaders…?
What’s the very best way to learn about digital command control? (DCC)

Best answer:

Answer by mariner31
Hmmm… I read the SEVERAL books published by Kalmbach Publishing / Model Railroader Magazine regarding DCC… starting with “DCC Made Easy – DCC for your Model Railroad” by Lionel Strang.

I also have a subscription to Model Railroader Magazine and their website which have CONSTANT articles and forums on the subject.

It (DCC) is the greatest thing to happen to the hobby since Flex-trak !! Wiring is SO much more simple than on an old DC system, and Operations are a BLAST !!

I run a 10’x12′ bedroom shelf layout with a large-yard, two heavy industries, a commuter train, and 2 hidden yards… I can now be running a LONG coal consist with TWO locos pulling, a LONG intermodal consist with THREE locos pulling, my Commuter line, and two yard engines… ALL at the SAME TIME !!

GOOD LUCK
