    Scale feet? Yeah, no problem. But never with my glasses on and then only after getting permission in writing from my opthalmologist.:D

    I've noticed it on Danneman's and other well-done N scale layouts and, yes, to me code 55 rail and realistically spaced ties just look better. That's why I jumped into code 55 in 1996 with Micro...

    I'll be implementing the 1:7 solution (matte medium to water) with a 60-second "dunk," but after boiling the trees to make them more pliable for straightening. So I'm adding a step.

    I'll follow my...

    So just to make sure, once you soak the material in glycerine, you don't dunk it into nitric acid and agitate, right?

    Just wondering, something I thought I recall from a science class. ...

    I'll install and cut it over for you. Figure about $150,000 for labor, bungalow, masts, cable, gates and commercial power hookup.

    I would say, "Somewhere in between." But I think I've garnered a clue about why from what you posted above re: the instructions.

    Either I missed the 1:7 ratio matte medium to water, or they've...

    Soak Super Trees, yea or nay?

    I've gone through three or four big boxes of Super Trees over the years. And I've dutifully followed the directions for soaking them in matte medium.

    I'm wondering if that's really necessary. Soak...

    I've mulled over that, Allen, and will give it a whirl. Kind of figuring out whether to tone down the gray or brighten up the brown. I've been working from the model-painting premise that dark colors...

    If you can control other locomotives with the PowerCab, then that's likely not the problem. Next logical culprit would be the decoder, so dial in CV30, then 002, enter.

    Yep, probably the most-reliable and obtainable N scale locomotives produced to date. Easy to add a decoder if you get a "DCC Ready" version.

    That issue can often be resolved by resetting the decoder to factory defaults. There should be a manual included with the locomotive. If it's a Digitrax decoder, dial in CV8 with a value of 008. If...
