Rob and Kev, could you please email me a screen shot of the error? I would like to see what exact error message is. Somehow with any firewall update I seem to have to reset the commands. John

No JA, a trainboard is a bunch of train nuts getting together to argue what track and switches to use on a future layout xD

Mr.JA - Sat 11 Feb - 04:25

What's a "trainboard"? Is that what you build your layout on? lol
