    "I can't get no...." :D

    I'm glad you like your new VO, Zandoz. And they do creep pretty well, don't they? Did you decide to try your hand at installing the handrails? The biggest problem I ran into was the pegs were...

    [/color] No but there was some "interesting" conversation between the two trains. Many listeners heard it. [/quote]Hi all, just happened upon this video for the first time. Where is this...

    patience has no virtue

    if at all possible, WAIT! And ask. :D I wish I had asked. I'm not even sure they changed the model numbers from the korean version to the chinese version. I know how hard it is to wait when you...

    To be a little more

    To be a little more helpful, my korean-made UP VO-1000 is #51030, and it says the 50XXX series has step guards while the 51XXX do not. I do not know if this answers the korea vs china question...

    I think you might be

    I think you might be referring to my thread. I can only really complain about having to install the handrails, because the locomotive is a pretty smooth running machine. After break in it quieted...

    wow.

    Do people just make those models for a 'what-if' scenario then? I can't imagine any reason to model a locomotive in a livery that almost never existed. Is this a widespread problem in model RRing? ...

    Concrete ties

    Steve,I've only seen concrete ties on light rail lines in the USA and of course everywhere in continental europe. This doesn't mean that they don't exist on mainlines or that they didn't way back...
  10. take your pick, eh? :)

    Which is more tedious and time consuming, laying your own spikeless code 40 track or filing down your loco wheels with a dremel? I'd think both operations are a bit tedious, but having never done...

    long live the GP40!

    did a google image search for "santa fe gp40," I saw them in silver and red warbonnet, yellow and indigo warbonnet, green and black former BN but BNSF, and modern orange BNSF, no swoosh...
  12. code 40.

    wow, code 40. I admire your intrepidity. Hand laid! Isn't there a world record n scale handlaid layout at some museum somewhere? I presume you handlaid the turnouts on the main lines too? I've...

    In no way am I an expert, but I would assume this would depend largely on the timeframe and what particular location along the ATSF's line you want to model. I'd look at some old pictures from those...

    Also- does c55 have holes in the middle of the ties for track nails like c80 does? couldn't you just temporarily tack it down while you figure it out so you don't have to solder it permanently at...
  15. indeed

    Makes sense to me. I think I'll use Kato's unitrack for now, (I'm just doing a VERY small switch yard) but when I get some time and space, code55 sounds like the way to go, especially if Peco's is...

    Sounds like Atlas did the right thing then. I would be interested to see some pulling stats on the older high speed locos and the newer scale speed ones. If there are indeed more windings and some...

    NOOB follow-up question-

    Is the scale speed attained via reduced gearing or simply more winds on the armatures? Basically, does reducing the top speed of the locos provide more pulling power at the slower speeds? If so, I...

    It's funny how when I thought about doing this, meaning getting back into N scale RRing, I assumed many things: 1, that because UP runs everything in Utah now, that that's how it must have always...

    I wouldn't, man. Are you having problems with connectivity? I hope not seeing as I just bought a bunch of unitrack. How do you like their turnouts?
