    Nothing wrong, I heard they're great quality, but they have yet to release a product appropriate for my era/geography, that's all. The AmCal Horizon cars will finally change that.

    It really depends on the type of N scale we're talking about. I have no problem with my 4 year old niece playing with a Tomix Thomas set (with the Anna and Clarabelle cars) running on DC on a loop of...

    Intermodal was mostly 40'/45' TOFC (Piggyback) trailers back then. Containers (20' and 40') were rare and rode on 89' flat cars. Although you can have doublestacks if you model Southern Pacific,...

    The economy of the concrete ties is that they cost more initially but are more cost effective over the long run, as they can last up to 70 years before needing replacement, whereas wooden ties are...

    All of the commercially-made Big Boy models are officially discontinued at the moment, unless you're talking about NOS or the second-hand market/eBay. So there's no official way to gauge that.

    But modern continuously-welded heavy-traffic mainline track on concrete ties is more rugged than the old-style rail on wooden ties, no?

    You mean the cab car, right? Because that's the car with the horn. While you're at it, and since you're putting a decoder in there, are you planning to add head/ditch lights as well?

    The original person who asked about it got me to look into my email archive for the name of the Shapeways maker, but after a search it looks like they are no longer selling. Sorry.

    I've only bought a few things from Shapeways, all of them printed model RR tools and none of them models per se. I wouldn't mind paying more if the models came in ready-to-paint condition though. The...
