About 2/3 of the way through this session, my son Joseph Kamm, who was visiting for this session, came up to me and indicated that there was a "short" in the other room. He indicated that he had asked other members of the Sue Line crew, but none knew what to do.

Fearing the worst, a went to see what had happened......

only to discover the "short" was an N-scale locomotive which my son will be running on his railroad.
I had been had, but in a very good way.
