Part two.At the request by Hornby (As asked by one of the Staff, Chris) is this two part video. Here i share with you my 1st attempt at doing a hard wired decoder installation, so it’s time for the old soldering iron to come out. The model is one of Hornby’s popular loco’s found in many of it’s set’s. This is one of the earlier versions, as the later one’s have slightly different wiring set up. Video Rating: 5 / 5

This hobby shop had a large selection of G, O, HO and N scale model railroad supplies. WHen in the South Florida area pay them a visit or at WWW.ReadyToRollTrains.com Video Rating: 4 / 5
Question by Adelia: Are my child not quite ready for a wooden train set or an electric set or maybe have to tried these already?
I have 2 sons, ages 2 & 4. As a single parent, I was looking for something that would be an easy “add-on” collection for my children while spanning different ages.
A tiny bit of challenge to set it up the first time but it gets easier as one becomes more creative. They are both thouroughly enjoying the train set. They are also both prettyrough with toys and it is handling the abuse.
Are they not quite ready for a wooden train set or an electric set or maybe have to tried these already??
Answer by Reese i think you should try the Electric one they would be amazed and fascinated and star at it for hours

Question by SlyGsc: My cat is driving me crazy and I’m ready to give him up. Is this bad?
I have had my male cat for a little over 2 yrs now and life has not been how I imagined it after adopting him as a kitten.
His (ongoing) flaws:
– He can be very aggressive – you can play w/him only so long before he attacks you viciously
– He will knock anything in his way on the floor for no reason
– He’ll chew anything of personal value to me(he has lots of toys)
– He drools and “digs” on you persistently
– He doesn’t like to be held
– He doesn’t believe in “training”
– He is not affectionate at all (see number 4)
– I got him a friend and he plays too rough w/him
– He’s been screaming at the top of his lungs from anywhere from 5am – 6am.
– He’s beautiful
– He makes for a lot of good stories
I’ve had cats since I was 6 and have never had a cat quite like him. I’ve tried just about everything and it kills me to think about having to return him to the shelter after 2yrs. What makes things worse, I love the new cat and he is exactly what I want in a cat.
Some people are so rude…
To those of you who aren’t:
He is neutered and I did get him from a no kill shelter with the promise that I had to return him there if I gave him up. I got him when he was 2 months and I do think that he was pulled from his mom too soon as he still “kneads” into me. His friend is a boy cat that is about 16 months old.
I took all the right steps in training him; squirt bottle, isolation, positive reinforcement with snacks, etc. I just don’t know what else to do. I tried to wait until he grew up from a kitten, but here it is 2 yrs later and he is very much the same. As far as playing with him…he plays for about 10 mins, then looks at me with a bored look from across the room.
I take VERY good care of my cat, I always have. I just am running out of ideas…and I think the situation is stressing us both out.
Answer by HoHosareSICK Get him neutered if he hasn’t been… it calms males down a lot.
