    This is a month long project that serves (or will serve) many aspects. I have been photographing my passenger car inventory from both sides, to be used in a future car tracking project utilizing...

    The already mentioned Baldwin road switchers would be grand.
    The PM E7 & cars would be a real joy, but-
    85' passenger car core kits are top of my list. 2 kits left in hand, and 13 brass sides to be...

    Three sections of Kato elevated track apparently only available (or cataloged) in Japan.

    I have nothing to offer regarding whether F3 or F7 chassis are a good mate to the Baldwin shells, but I did purchase an A-B-A set of Sharknose set on Atlas/Kato RS-11 chassis from an early run with...

    While I did get some new rolling stock (a pair of Wheels of Time 80' Baggage-Horse-Express cars; ordered some time ago, so that doesn't count), I have a great need to start the electronics under the...

    Thanks for the info about LocoNet. Maybe I missed something in the Digitrax manual, but it seemed to jump from describing the power unit right into Loconet as if they were one and the same.
    I think...

    LCC, Loconet, and other mysteries

    Season's Greetings!!

    I've gotten to the point of the layout that I need to start dropping wires along the tracks. It's a 16' x 10' looping affair with 7 distinct routes that can run independent of...

    The entire DCC world will be new to me. I've read what I can, but until the real system is under wheel, it will be somewhat trial and error. That is one reason why I wanted to separate layout from...

    Just this morning, I finally opened the Super Chief box I purchased new almost 10 years ago. I see it has the DT400R radio throttle, and a separate PS515 power supply. No LocoNet parts at this time....

    3 3/4 scale miles of track (a whole box). A box of Midwest Cork Roadbed.

    I had made a tool with a small bridged opening to form the bead as I readied to lay the track. It worked reasonably well, even on WS foam roadbed (being careful not to push down too hard or too...

    I'll go with the Atlas instructions from this point on.
    The helix are not visible, so prototype appearance is not a factor. Being below the main layout level, access is limited, but I took steps to...

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I will make it a practice to place that loose rail to the outside just to keep things standard on the layout. A test with the 0-5-0 and a passenger car showed no...
  16. Loose rail position on curves, outside rail?

    A quick question about the Atlas C55 (or any other flex track) loose rail location on curves. I have many helix as well as regular curves to lay. My thought was that I would prefer the gauge open...

    I ,too have some shinohara track components (LH yard ladder, LH curve turnout, etc.) and will work them into the segment I was referring to that included the crossing. I didn't think it wise to start...

    First, I thank you all for your thoughts and input to my question. I'd acknowledge each with a "Thank You", but I haven't found the button yet to do so. Maybe after I'm off moderator oversight as a...

    That will be in the works, but not a front burner project to tackle.
    The code 80 track can be changed out in time. Before then, there is much to do. I have been completely out of the loop for years,...
  20. Exchanging code 55 with code 80 rail on Atlas Crossing

    Hi! I'm new here on this forum, and am resurrecting a layout project started a decade ago.
    I have much legacy equipment (originally started modeling N Scale with Aurora Postage Stamp, but none of...
