    CB&Q Omaha station: any errors?

    I made this model particularly for Todd, who is working on a C&NW route. It continually failed to load until I discovered that the clockface wasn't perfectly square. I fixed that and made a new ace,...

    Oh. Some young adults can't remember Sep. 11, 2001, and XP is from that era.

    Don't make fun of us old people! ;-)
