    Me too, and apply Sculptamold where I need to fill in gaps or modify the topography.

    But I do apply a layer of ground goop over the foam. Dead easy to make and apply.

    Yes, you can do that as well.

    I found a voltage drop across the hinge, so whether you power the points from the closure rails, or the closure rails from the points, bypassing that darned hinge is...

    The design has current passing to the point at the hinge with the closure rail. This is an inherent weakness with the design.

    I consider 1975-76 as the years (age 12-13) when I became an active model railroader. Prior to then I had N scale and O gauge train sets. But becoming exposed to Railroad Model Craftsman and Model...

    Any time you can avoid removing weight over the drivers is a plus, and if you can add more weight (within reason), that's a plus too. If you can, make sure you don't inadvertently "front load" or...

    You'll glom on to the terminology in time. "Straight route" and "diverging route" are the common usage, and sometimes the diverging route is designated the "normal" route. Confusing, I know. We've a...

    As long as rail alignment isn't compromised, why not? You might try dielectric grease for the same reason, too. Bulb grease at the auto parts store is the same thing.

    But I always hedge my bets...

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but C1 would also filter out most of DCC signal, right, to keep it out of the 555? Not that the 555, being analog, would care that much. ...

    It's a clever idea, richfiles.

    The only shortcoming I see is how will I replace my dexterity exercises while wiring under the layout. Nothing gets those quick-twitch muscles firing like a blob of...

    Hmm, well, Moose2013 and Caribou, I might have to put Monroe on the calendar.

    Yes, ease of leveling unfortunately is not one of Sculptamold's characteristics.

    Maybe try some grayish-black craft foam?

    But seriously, I think you're right -- they have no idea what they're doing, or if they do, then they are actively scamming buyers and eBay should shut them down soon.
