    My defining N-scale moment? When I joined nscale.net, of course! When I returned to the hobby in 2016 (after a 30+ year absence), I encountered the BIG decision: H0 or N. I thought about it for about...

    Yup! I use the Microscale UP-patch numbered decal sets for my SP locos. Looks and works great!

    Great replies—thanks! Yeah—just do it. The Accu-Lites are an attractive solution since they're relatively affordable and they just make installation that much easier, so based on these replies, I...

    So, I saw this on the MRR forum here regarding the Accu-Lite Vampire II PCBs mentioned above:


    "I would NOT recommend these. Splice into the main bus with a solder connectior or a T-tap style...

    Sorry to bump this thread, but it took me a while to re-find it. Now that I'm back into thinking about my layout again, the next step after/concurrent with backdrops is bus-wiring for DCC. The...

    Welcome! Sorry to hear about your friend, but that explains your massive collection.


    That's very similar to my planned layout: It starts from left-to-right, from the Mojave Desert to rolling...

    Someone linked this thread and thought it was pretty good so I thought I'd resurrect it. I thought this was a good tip and will incorporate it into my shooting when I go out to capture some images...

    Yeah, I was fine with that trade for better sound. I did buy a BLI Rolling Thunder sub-woofer/receiver and one BLI compatible loco and am excited to hear that hooked up someday.

    I have a Kato sound box and I love it! I have several sound cards for it. It never occurred to me, as I read in your thread, to have more than one. I run it through an old Sony surround-sound system,...

    Backdrops!

    Thanks—every bit helps! There's several oil refineries not far from my house that I do plan to photograph. If you recall, when I entered the hobby back in 2016, I had pretty severe...

    I can relate to a lot of posts here, especially @MetroRedLn's:

    • Dying.
    • Dying before I complete my layout.
    • Dying with no one to take care of my trains.

    I've asked my GF to come here when...

    Sounds great! Thanks! Still have a lot to do before that step. Give you a shout when ready.

    Garage update: Moved most of my bulky photo/lighting gear into my van (which mostly goes unused), so the...

    Really? That would be so cool! I think I'll make that a two-track crossing! Hmmm . . . maybe if I get a plot of land someday, I could build just an acre's length of track with the crossing.

    I've actually been thinking about this a lot lately. I've been dreaming of having a 1:1 railroad with a real Southern Pacific GP35 and some Railbox cars. It would have at least one road-crossing with...

    Thank you all for the warm welcome back! I've been re-reading my thread, and I'm getting very excited to return to my layout. The two major roadblocks have been: 1.) Backdrop selection/installation....

    Thanks again for everyone's input on this! We've decided to take the trip another time when I can score the Superliner Bedroom for $250 for two passengers, since I don't know how well I'll fare a...

    Thanks, again, railohio! Really appreciate all the help, guys! Didn't know this was going to be so complicated. What do you guys think? Twelve hours is a loooong time. And, Southern Californians tend...

    Thanks for clarifying the upper/lower level thing! Oh? So no viewing cars on current Coast Starlight consists?

    Yes I know, thanks! Just reading some Amtrak forums, the window seats in the viewing cars get kinda "hogged-up" with people saving seats for hours with a sweater or something. Supposedly, a lot of...

    Almost just booked a pair upper-level coach seats. But the trip is 12 hours, so I'm not sure I'll be able to handle 12 hours in a seat.

    Yeah, I thinking about this, the smaller-than-jail cell, 3' x 6' Roomette may give me claustrophobia. Was that a Superliner or Viewliner car?
  25. Apparently there's no way to know which side your...

    Apparently there's no way to know which side your Roomette will be facing since the consist varies. The only guarantee is to book a family room which can see both sides since there's also windows...
