    Default New N Scale How To Youtube Channel

    Hi guys, I know there is a how to section here but the focus of this channel will be N Scale mostly. I hope to do one video a month or more if I can. I take emails with topic suggestions at random and try to explain what I know about the topic ( sometimes not much LOL) . I try to keep it simple. I hope this post is OK.

    I wrote ‘happy’.
    They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

    I highly recommend this channel. I subscribed when Mike stated it a couple of weeks ago and it
    has tons of useful how-to's on it.

    Thanks, Mike.
    I've moved this to the Tutorials forum, and made it a sticky.

    Hey Mike, what about a video on steam loco maintenance? The diesel one was great but I've got some herky-jerky movement with a steam loco and I'd like to smooth it out.
