Hi Shawn,

Thanks much for the reply. I am interested in information about the club. I live next door to you in North Ridgeville behind and to the right of Lorain county community college heading east.
Doug i belong to a g scale club also in the cleveland northeastern ohio. Northeast ohio g scale garden railroad society we meet once a month at different areas in ne ohio. As for me i live in canton there are about 50 or 60 members in the club. Shawn what scale is your club. Most of the members in nogers are g scale they have indoor and outdoor layouts as for ours it is outdoors. My wife and myself have only been in g scale for about 2 1/2 years but like it very much. What scale are you running.
Pete, we run all G scale including Live Steam, Track and Battery power.

Doug, I was just up by the college earlier today, if you would like to swing by the house here I have a 30x12 indoor layout with 3 mainlines and plenty of power, heck bring some of your own equipment and run it here.

and I live right off of Abbe on University Ave. right before you get to Chestnut Ridge. Drop me an email and I'll get you some club info and give you my contact info.

oh one thing about our club, NO FEES of any kind to join our little happy group
but you just need to enjoy running Trains and good fellowship.

Hi Pete ans Shawn,

No hospitol although if I don't slow down a little it may be a possibility. I went out to the barn and brought in all my track- close to 3000 feet and started cleaning it. What I found that is working great is drano deluted in a long plastic storage tub that fits under a bed. I put inj ust enought to cover 1/8 inch of the top of the rail. It working great and it leaved the rail weathered naturally.
Plus I've started making main line switches to try to hold the cost down a little.
Now all we need is for the 2 feet odf snow to melt.
Doug 3000ft that,s a lot of cleaning.I sit at the compture and look out side at our layout and try to figure out how to add more track. We are pretty limited with the area we have to work with.
