I know you're good at all this miniaturised electronics malarky but I don't think Seuthe actually makes a smoke generator small enough to replicate that scene to your usual levels of detail :cry:

Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it. Chaucer's spelling didn't faze me. You don't frighten me.




I've read Finnegan's Wake.

I forgot to add,
I have just upgraded the Digitrax controller from the Zephyr to the Super Chief set, with an extra IR panel.
I still have my zephyr which I am going to use as a stand alone programmer, which I also have a Digitrax MS100 so I can program from the PC whilst still running trains on the PC, using RR&Co and JMRI.
Where before I had to close one program to open the other.
