    Despite their name, Proto87 _does_ make trackwork in other scales, N scale included.
    I didn't realize their N-scale range had improved as much as it has over the last few years ... so I'd be...

    I love that it doesn't look like one building. It doesn't look planned, but it fits beautifully....the additions show age and updating very well.

    With that in mind, to me, it feels like a factory...

    The writing had been on the wall for DI for quite some time, unfortunately ... this really is one of the best-case outcomes, though. FVM does some spectacular work, and at least the tooling is now in...

    The way technology advances, I think 'jutter is bang on with his estimation. Even the lower-quality machines were tens of thousands a few years ago, and they just keep dropping in price. I don't know...

    I just tried to get a rate quote, but FedEx seemed to think I was kidding. Does anyone know the phone number for the USAF Air Mobility Command?

    32 HD Double-Offset Folding Disc Harrow

    This weekend allowed me some free time to put the finishing touches on a model I've been working on for a while. Some paying work kept getting in the way of getting this one finished up.

    Thats a beautiful looking model, Scott. Does the Trainworx kit come with any variety of instructions/directions, or is it assumed you know what you're doing? I found a few on a certain auction...

    That was going to be my suggestion, but depending on how small you wanted the radius would dictate how large a pipe you used. If you were going larger (4+ inch diameter) I would use a table saw to...

    I wonder if heating the tape was really the cause? I've used a hair dryer to speed dry times and flash off while trying to push a paintjob a little bit quicker, and never had the tape leave a residue...

    You sure on that? I don't see any mention of them doing an M-2 on their website. A laundry list of GEVO's, and some ACe's, but no M-2's.

    Whoever does either variation in CN livery will get a...

    Incorrect.

    A point of sale terminal (like a your local drug store) doesn't care whether your billing address matches or not. It just takes your money blindly and without judgement. An integrated...

    Not a bad idea. I had thought of that originally, but was going to use pieces lower than the rail height so I could still use the rail-head as parallel blocks for a screed. Your idea means a bit more...

    Do you mean put the styrene in place of the flangeway and remove it when the plaster has cured?

    Thanks for the replies, everyone!

    I plan to use a straightedge to get the plaster level with the railheads, but sanding and an initial track cleaning will lower the plaster immediately next to the...

    Hello all,

    Working on a medium-sized paved area on one of the clubs BendTrack modules.

    This area is going to have tracks embedded in the pavement for probably 14-16 inches. I plan to model the...

    I'm glad to see baldylox on here...I've drooled over a few of his products in his shop, and will probably buy a couple once the current BendTrack module is completed.

    Just to echo what he said,...

    Nope, GE's are a 4-stroke design. EMD's are two-stroke, with either a blower or compound turbocharger depending on horsepower, model and vintage. Bear in mind that, in the period in question, EMD was...

    That's a very unfair statement, especially this early after the incident. There were two trains, two crews, two railroads involved....either or both could have played a role in what happened.
