So, that does indeed explain the word you used, "immediately", and I apologize for giving you a bit of a hard time. That is a LOT of stuff to take out for every running session. I am definitely not in that boat, that is a lot of work! From setting a 40 car freight, my thighs hurt like the dickens the next day, no way could I take everything out, and my feeble mind could not mentally inventory all the rolling stock. I can remember how many locos, and if one is missing (although I just found 2 more USAT warbonnets in the garage yesterday), but all the freight cars, no way, I need a list to help me, and of course if one is missing which one is missing.

But I see you actually have a computer assist program which indeed is at the very least a database... sir, you are herewith busted ha ha!

(all in good fun to be sure!!!!)

In bold Greg is why we older folk start to elevate our layouts
Personally I do not think I even have 40 wagons/carriages in my whole inventory that many would almost see my train drivers looking at the guards van as they went around. ;);)

Fortunately, I have storage sidings in the garage and so I can pull everything out and deploy it (apart from the locos which I keep in the house). Even so, it can take an hour to set everything up (or just under 5 minutes in this hi tech world ..... ;) )

You're right, most of us don't need a database - except Mike and Kent Keith :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
If you think about it..
We are doing it the easy way.
We just have to rember what we don't have..

These puns are not only becoming more subtle, they are becoming bi-lingual .....;):D

There was quite a long running series in Continental Modeller years ago about a beautifully detailed French layout entitled Clochmerle :nod: :nod:

For some reason, when you mentioned Clochemerle, I thought of this video. It's not Clochemerle but it is a mighty fine video of an enchanting little railway

Wouldn't "mais oui!" be more appropriate?

Considering the subject-matter.. :nerd::giggle::giggle:
I don't think I would want to consider the subject matter :tmi::tmi:
