    B. ~~~~~~ DESCRIPTION: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

    * This is probably one of the most unique, clever and entertaining model railroading videos you will ever see. It was made from the 1991 demonstration videotape, made by John Aaron, titled "Take Command of Your Railroad With . . . Eye Control.
    * As was printed on the videotape's cover, "In this video John will spend over an hour and a half teaching you how to use the Eye Control with all types of trains, N scale to G, indoors and out."
    * The Eye Control is long out-of-production (last produced 1992), but this video may give you ideas how similar devices could be made and used today.
    * This tape has been uploaded with John Aaron's permission.
    * To keep up with John's current writings, visit his blogs at JohnAaronStories.blogspot.com, HoboJackOfHearts.blogspot.com -- plus 2 more blogs accessible via his profile page at blogger.com/profile/17279318794718541824 .
