    Presumably the wind speed is low in the dead-end pockets between the ties and fast where the wind has a through route to the nozzle.

    Best guess: there is a crane up there for picking up the covers (but where do they put them?) and maybe unloading coils onto a flatbed that takes it into the factory. Should make for interesting...

    Do you have a pic of your scale?

    I toyed with the idea a while back but couldn't figure out how to attach a scale to a loco so that pulls it neither up nor down. I was picturing a process where...

    Technically no. An auto reverser works by detecting a short circuit and fixes it by reversing polarity. Maybe someone knows of one that will also throw a solenoid turnout, otherwise you have to...

    I can't imagine the off click not working no matter what the polarity - that is a physical switched contact. Sounds like somewhere your wiring is not right. Never tried to reverse polarity and not...

    I replaced my T4 GE 50Ks with 4-foot LEDs. Only difference I can see is they are brighter. They make two types - one is a drop-in replacement for old ballasted fixtures, the other is more...

    I've been using 5000K, starting with GE 50Ks back in the days of fluorescent. Very happy with the color, looks like a hazy sunny day. 4000K looks brown in comparison.
