It was a Southern steam engine and tender, with a consist of 4 cars hopper, gondola, flatcar, and caboose. The track was a simple figure eight, that could also be arranged in an oval. I played and played and played with that train, with adventures fueled by my imagination. I use to dream of expanding it into a larger layout, but lack of money and living in a small town that didn’t have hobby stores pretty much nipped that dream in the bud.

But that didn’t stop me from having fun. I built tunnels and trestles for my simple track. I had a pretty good supply of plastic cowboys, Indians, and horses. I can’t count how many times that train got robbed. I built train depots out of my Lincoln Log set.

In accountancy, depreciation refers to two aspects of the same concept: Businesses depreciate long-term assets for both tax and accounting purposes. The former affects the balance sheet of a business or entity, and the latter affects the net income that they report. Generally the cost is allocated, as depreciation expense, among the periods in which the asset is expected to be used. This expense is recognized by businesses for financial reporting and tax purposes.

Methods of computing depreciation, and the periods over which assets are depreciated, may vary between asset types within the same business and may vary for tax purposes. These may be specified by law or accounting standards, which may vary by country. There are several standard methods of computing depreciation expense, including fixed percentage, straight line, and declining balance methods.

Depreciation expense generally begins when the asset is placed in service. For example, a depreciation expense of per year for five years may be recognized for an asset costing

Al, some great tips and thanks for that, I asked you some time ago how to paint center white lines on roads, and what was the best method and tools. Black auto primer works great. Let it dry a day or two. Place the pinstriping tape down as the centerline. Do this on both sides of the striping tape and use acrylic yellow paint to cover those 2 uncovered black paths. If you want the single white line, just use the painters tape, and leave the gap width of the line you want.
