    Paul Newman and Gary Coleman are no longer with us, unfortunately. The one time I saw Gary Coleman in person was at the old Allied Model Trains store here in Los Angeles (also no longer with us)....

    A lot of my non-model railroader friends were sharing this article with me today. For most of us modelers, this is old news. I still have my 2007 MR cover story issue. Is the only difference here...

    What era? Sky's the limit if you're modeling before the '80s. Modern era still has some boxcars but most are RailBoxes rather than from the RRs (though CSX & NS uses more RR-branded boxcars than UP...

    I would have no problem with ads on this site provided that they are restricted to model railroad-related products/retailers.

    Although, this site has been an invaluable resource to me when I...

    I'm with ya. ES44 GEVOs? Fox Valley. SD70Ms? Kato. Having choices is actually good for N scale. That's why I could never understand the "I only buy Kato" or "i only buy Atlas" crowd. They put too...

    That was the essence of what I was saying, so if you were trying to start an argument here, then there's no argument.
  8. This right here. Where a product is made is not...

    This right here. Where a product is made is not really a factor at all. It really boils down to reputation vs. outsourcing, and for the outsourced 3rd party manufacturer, it's just a contract gig. If...

    Sounds like you have Rule 17 Dimming enabled. It might be intentionally programmed as a prototypical feature in the factory. Do you have a computer with JMRI and an interface into your DCC command...

    A lot of YouTubers have inflated egos just because of the attention their channel gets. This is not unique to the model railroad scene, though nearly all of the N scale channels I follow are run by...

    He needs to see the big picture. N is the only scale that's actually growing in modeler numbers. The editor of Model Railroader (an even bigger HO bastion than MRH) has confirmed it.

    I would do a deep dark brown, kind of like midway between these two. But if you have furniture in the room, it should blend with them somehow.

    Just move your era to after the 1990s, so you won't need to model them at all :)

    If it's released after 2006 and retails for under $150, then it's a DCC-ready locomotive :)

    Doesn't seem to work. And I have a variable temp solder that's pretty high up.

    Does anyone know how to properly remove electronic components from a lighting board? I'm supposed to remove a couple resistors and re-install them in a different location on the board.

    Here's the thing -- let's say, hypothetically speaking, there's a super micro-sized battery than can adequately power N scale locomotives, even with sound. We would STILL have to clean our track,...

    It's funny how just 10 years ago, Deluxe Innovations was the King of N Scale Intermodal.

    Today, Jacksonville Terminal Co. is the new King of N Scale Intermodal, and compared to JTC's containers,...

    There has always been this assumption that degrading eyesight is a factor for modelers to abandon smaller scales and go bigger. But that doesn't take into consideration technical advances in medicine...

    Is it the economy-sized bottle? :D

    Okay, okay, I'll stop.

    When I started dismantling that 4x12' HO scale layout that had been gathering dust for several years and replacing it with a 4x8' N pike.

    And don't forget the Salt Lake layout...game changer!

    Compare it to the larger scales and everything makes more sense. Although, he might have meant "economy" as in "more trains/layout size per square foot."
