John, you almost got me convinced to move--
Now if you have---say--- a million two (or so) to spare so I can bring all my junk over--

PS You probably don't realize how much better off you are without me.

PPS Or perhaps, you do-----

My Australian vocabulary came from Steve Erwin.  Always loved how he said 'CROCS'.  Anyways, great job Larry!

Thanks Woodie, that worked although the message was not clear. I'll PM the author to find out what it's all about.

oztrain,
This info does help. Since I am not well versed in electronics, when the time comes, I may need help getting my incline to work properly.


No worries, We'll sort it when the time arrives. The electrickery here is very basic - a DC power source, a sensing switch and a diode between the power source and your DC winch motor. You have a 50/50 chance of getting the diode right first time. :bg:

I may be the only person on the planet who does not know this... why is Australia often referred to as "OZ"?

Larry



Because Australia is usually pronounced down her as OZ-STRAY-LI-YA and us being the lazy so-and-so"s we we are, we shorten our words in the local dialect of "STRINE" (shortened from "Australian")

So
afternoon becomes "arvo"
television becomes "telly" or "TeeV"
telephone becomes "fone"
"She'll be right" (not a problem) becomes "shill-bee" and so
Australia becomes contracted to "Oz"

It has nothing to do with a certain wizard and yellow brick road. But we do live in the best pace on this planet, but that's a well kept state secret :P

We also tend to move our mouths the minimum amount possible when talking - it helps to keep the bush flies out. They're usually that numerous that they'll pick you up and carry you away. Then there's the sharks, crocodiles, spiders, snakes and bunyips...

And if you believe all that, then I've got a house just up the road a bit with funny sails on top I can sell you ;)


No worries mite! LOL, I've worked with/for too many different nationalities...

Que pasa Mate?

This is what you would see as you enter my train room. The buildings in the background are on my HO scale urban switching layout. The foreground foam slab is the site of my future "Appetite" mine as seen from the other side. My modeling desk is behind all those peanut butter jars under the layout.
