    Your foliage looks particularly awesome! Nicely done! Your foam-work/Sculptamold is also praiseworthy! Layout starting to look amazing! I'm also a big fan of the polyfiber. Add leaves and instant...

    Flat-top with 2" iso. For a while I had built a hybrid. Wish I would've stuck with the hybrid (don't know why I didn't). A hybrid/open-grid inherently inspires more varied terrain-height. Now I'm...

    Hi! Are you referring to CRC QD Contact Cleaner? An Amazon customer stated, "[The] can says it contains isohexane, difluorethane, N-hexane, and ethanol. No isopropyl alcohol." I only chose the...

    The CRC stuff works fine. That's what I've been using. Get a bottle of Flitz metal polish (I think AutoZone carries it), and try polishing your track with that first, then just perform a...

    Try the Flitz + WD-40 contact cleaner or CRC contact cleaner combo. I swear, you'll never look back!

    At a dielectric constant of 2.1, mineral spirits is pretty good stuff and a lot cheaper than the aerosol products. I have a can of it I bought to remove paint but thought the canned stuff would just...

    Ooops!!! Corrected! Now, after everyone at MRH and some here went ga-ga over the WD-40 contact cleaner, I just ran out to Home Depot to get two cans of it, then I read the SDS sheet, after I got...

    • Track: Kato Unitrack and Unitram.
    • Location: Uninsulated garage in Los Angeles County beach community.
    • Elapsed time since trains were last run: >2 years.

    I've read just about every thread...

    I don't know. It seems to be a light-oil like LaBelle's. I saw a graphic once pointing out a special lubricating hole in the bottom of a Kato Portram (which my models lack), but I can't seem to find...

    I once had a second-layer when building out my extension. I'm re-thinking my whole layout now (easy, since NO work has been completed on it since last year), and may be lured back into creating a...

    Yeah! Looks great! Sorry if it's already been mentioned, but what material are you using for that black surface?

    Yes, I have what, a dozen brand-new Fox Valley Models' GP60s? And three new BLI AC6000s? And what do I like to run the most? My old used Atlas GP35s (typically, two or three lashed-up), creeping...

    Thanks, man! Looks like I have an LBF hi-cube TTX boxcar with the same problem. Apparently, there was an LBF/Hubert's connection at some point.
  19. LBF/Hubert's boxcars don't seem to open?

    As you know, I've been weighting all of my boxcars with my new tire-weights. Curiously, I have a few boxcars which don't seem openable. I'm not sure of the brand; perhaps they're Hubert's? Very nice...

    That's great! Yeah, I just love Tomix' track-options. Their extendable multi-track options would be a multi-track mainline dream (i.e., to mimic Los Angeles' Alameda corridor).

    They also make a...

    Yes, I read several other testimonials of those who successfully run very long trains with no added weight on both MRH's and MR's forums. I think it may be the case that for those whose trackwork is...

    I thought I'd make a separate thread to show off my new weights. First, I read several lengthy threads at MRH regarding opposing views on over-weighting rolling stock and decided slightly...

    Yes, measured unconnected, both at the terminals and at the wires leading to the terminal's solder-pads.

    Damn! Good one! Oh well, now I have a lifetime supply of weights if I ever switch to H0! How soft is zinc? Maybe I can hammer them sideways if I need them a bit narrower? Edit: These are zinc-coated...

    With a completely cleaned-out garage and renewed workspace, I'm ready to begin again. Haven't run any trains since last summer. Got my Kato Portrams, TGV Lyria, and some old Atlas GP35s up and...
