    • Hi Ray, the engine was tested and ran fine, Still under warranty, got it home, put it on the track, ran about 16 minutes then quit again. We have tried a hand held MTH unit and cant get it to find the engine. switched out TIU's and nothing there either. MTH rep in Wisconsin coming over to see it. on the track. We have tried everything we can to make this thing run and nothing seems to work. cant find which version of TIU I have because the unit will not find the engine and we have absoultly no control of the engine. Had another guy bring his brand new in the box BB over and we could not get it to run. then we got control of it with his hand held and we had 16 volts to the track and all of a sudden I started to bring it up to 22 mph scale and BOOM a capaciter in the the TIU blew and it started smoking. to say the guy was disapointed is an understatement He has not been able to get his to do anything either. I sent a note to MTH but of course heard nothing back. Wish you were closer. If it does not get fixed by Dec. I will be in S. Iowa again and will bring the damn thing down to have to you give it a go. You are the best when it comes to these things but to bad you are so far away. I dont trust the Mail to get it there unbroken.
    • Bought some rocks locally and he helped haul them over and put them in the layout. Big/strong guy, I died the small stuff.  Four pickup loads. North end here is about done, was getting hot so we stacked the rocks on the blocks and I can get to them, once it dries out again. Rain again, sheesh.  Lots of mulch is next and then put down the plants I have been babying since spring.   
    • Sean, sounds like he had a REAL PERSONALITY.  They're truly our family members.     LiG  
    • He was funny like that, he like to were costumes and climb up into chairs and sit! On one occasion we were @ the local shelter to get pics with Santa and we had to wait in line. Some one got up from there chair and he climbed up and sat there with a green derby and a bow tie. More pics were taken of him then of Santa..   
    • Sean, Most Certainly.   Planning on starting the tug in the fall, the LS Salvage Tug will stay on the back burner.  But I have scouted out a couple of possible lakes to sail on.  The one I'm most interested is I think on local municipal property, will approach them and see what they say.  BTW, the pic with the derby is PRICELESS.   LiG
