    As I said, I'm still running DC; however, I'm still in the process of building my layout so everything is only temporarily laid. I'm using 100% Kato Unitrack and although I plan to...

    It's true that it's fairly rare here. Again, this is one of the friendliest, most accepting groups of folks here. I absolutely love continuous-running and rail-fanning my own trains.

    MYTH or FACT?

    @Metrolink edits the crap out his posts making subsequent posts appear out-of-place and nonsensical.

    Doh! I meant modelrailroadforums.com! There's a few really helpful people there, and I really learned a lot from them, but the overall activity tends to be pretty spotty.

    Ha! I finally got the joke! Good one! Yeah, not sure about going from a really cool 'G' layout to an 'F' layout, which actually has less real estate for track and scenery. It's just that when the...

    More vertical space = plans for a new 10.5' x 3' second-level layout!

    A lot of my cars seem to roll on their own on just the slightest of grades (i.e., a fraction of the grade shown in the posted video). Just a small hump/dip in the trackwork and a gentle shove from a...

    Sort of related to the other replies; they seem to keep your track cleaner. Run some metal-wheeled cars around the layout for a few hours and everything seems to run great!

    That's polyisocyanurate, the stuff I use because pink and blue stuff isn't generally stocked at Southern California home centers. Other than the foil backing, I really like it. It's easy to carve and...
