That's an imaginative game, Larry, provided that no one googles their answers.  I know at least nine of them, and have heard of a few of the others.  The rest, to me, are unfamiliar.

Wow, a few of those are familiar, but at my age it's possible to forget my name, never mind some RR slogans... I do believe I do know one without doing any Googling...

Well Deano, you're six times better than I am, I know one, but there's a chance I could be wrong on that one too. Waiting

Well, after Don and Mikey's replys, I dont feel so bad Misngth . The only ones I knew were 4 5 6 8 12 and 13, and honestly I knew what 5 was but I had to look it up to be sure I was right, I was Icon_cool .

Had it not been for my Dads layouts being in the 40's-60's era, I wouldnt have known but 3 of them Icon_redface , remembering some of his bocars saved me, LOL!

Thank you Larry and Ed too. This has been an enjoyable, and humbling thread. To think I know so little about the roots of the hobby I've embraced, it's almost embarrassing. The good thing though is that I know a lot more now..... 2285_ 2285_
