RAILROAD PRAYER

 

Oh Lord, now that I have flagged Thee, lift up my feet from the rough road of life and plant them safely on the deck of the train of salvation. Let me use the safety on the deck of the train of salvation. Let me see the safety lamp know as prudence, join all the couplings in the train with the strong arm of love, let my hand lamp be the Bible. Heavenly Father, keep all the switches closed that lead off to the sidings, especially those with the blind end. Oh Lord, if it be Thy pleasure, have semaphore block along the line show the white light of hope that I may make the run of life without stopping. And Lord, give us the Ten Commandments for a schedule and when I've finish on scheduled time and pulled into the dark station of death, may the superintendent of the Universe say, "Well done thou good and faithful servant, come and sign the payroll and receive the check of eternal hapiness."

From Z to G the store is widely known throughout the world. The store carries track, scenery, structures, electrical, tools, engines, rolling stock, a large selection of detail parts, accessories, and scratch building supplies.

Mike Wolf of MTH had confidence that they could get the job done when he asked Ready To Roll to build and design his show room layout located at MTH Headquarters in Maryland. This spectacular layout was featured in March 99’ Classic Toy Trains Issue.
