      Don't quite understand how this post pertains to the "Original Posters" questions or comments?   I did re-read it twice before posting as suggested though.

      Tilting at windmills is an English idiom that means attacking imaginary enemies. The expression is derived from Don Quixote, and the word "tilt" in this context comes from jousting.

      The phrase is sometimes used to describe either confrontations where adversaries are incorrectly perceived, or courses of action that are based on misinterpreted or misapplied heroic, romantic, or idealistic justifications. It may also connote an importune, unfounded, and vain effort against adversaries real or imagined

      Yes, the unnecessary and fowl comments about "read it twice" and "the experts" is "tilting at windmills"... and wasted energy...

      That Don Quixote bit of fluff is Greg's way of bringing out the best in people ... no not really, but it is his way, unless it's his thread and then anyone who would dare post such nonsense is the scourge of the universe.

      Dear Greg,

      Thanks for a PM that can't be answered.

       

      But thank you so much for telling me what is wrong with my life and more importantly how superior you think you are.

      Be Blessed.

      You are welcome John, dragging dirty laundry out to a thread where you accused me of doing so.

       

      Making a personal comment about me when none is needed, And of course your public comment here thinking I am attacking Noel, when my post was right after my buddy Rooster, clearly aimed at him. (see tilting at windmills)

       

      So, after all this public lambasting, you feel better?

       

      You have my email and you can rant to your heart's content. Make up and twist things to any extreme. If it makes you feel better, fine, you are only damaging yourself, as I stated.

       

      Greg

      Sorry it took so long....

      Had a lot of problems/changes on the Garden R.R. with blocks and wiring changes in main console.  So today finely got a test with our track cleaning trains running.

      Problems.....One was Auto Eng. house door cir got cut and had to use one of the spares cir. in the console to even able to get a trains out. Then for some reason our R/C receivers wouldn't program right.  Guess that what happens when a Layout is setting for a year or so. Still have a lot to do yet .. Building, night lights and water pumps for streams and waterwheel Grist Mill. Least all blocks and Signals are working fine now. Even had to rebuild the throws on one "Y" switch that has LGB Sw. motor to operates a Aristo Sw.in a hard place to get to.

      So all in all.... Things are coming along for our open house Narrow Gage Convention Tour in Sept.

      Short video of first test run with our Kitty helpers.
