    More, please! What's not to like? Great paint scheme, the old mechanical gongs, early Geeps but low-nosed, on track that needs the undercutter and a surfacing gang!

    I like Jugtown Modeler's idea: I think you should stencil on the road name every few feet like Google maps shows. We all should.:p

    Most of them are Bluford hoppers, Allen. And, yes, Accumates might be the solution. They'd be the easiest swap-outs, and I wouldn't have the slinky-effect to deal with.

    They look the part, that's for certain! Except call them "crossing bungalows" or "houses." And the ones that we can't walk into are "cases."

    A good read on train authority

    Dave Husman over on the MRH forum has written a concise, easy to understand primer on what authorizes a train to move. He briefly goes into various methods of operation (TT/TO, CTC, TWC, etc.). It's...

    Your options are a scanner that monitors AAR channels, or a PC that monitors the ATCS sites. Not all railroads use ATCS, so coverage is limited.

    Everything Steve said, except my track is ME code 55. A thin layer of clear adhesive caulk spread thinly and held in place with T-pins works well, and the stuff comes up easily enough.
