Huh? What happened to my "Halt für Rangierfahrten" sign?

Why is this dude laying on his back?

Who pee'd and poo'ed on my signal?

Aha! Fingerprints of the culprit.

For the first time in 12 years in the garage, the Welztalbahn was visited by a rat this week. That's a visitor I prefer to not have in the layout room. I see a deep cleaning session in the near future.

Time to set up a Victor electronic rat trap (a.k.a. "The Verminator") in your garage. The first one I purchased a few years ago for our back yard "checked in" twelve "guests" (including a squirrel) in the first month -- none of them "checked out". A dab of peanut butter on the back wall serves as a great attractant. I covered the open slots on the outside of the back wall with duct tape to keep the rascals from attempting to lick the peanut butter off the wall from the outside.

I suppose you could also build your own with about a hundred Keep Alives wired in series...
