    You have a lot of options in a lot of eras. For 4 axle engines it is hard to beat the Atlas GP38/GP38-2/GP40 lineup. Solid runners with tons of DCC options.

    I just picked up a dozen Intermountain ACFX 2 Bay hoppers from Fifer Hobby. Great news, the couplers are now body mounted! This saves me some work!

    If I had unlimited space, I’d still be building the same Skally Line I am now.

    Just because you have the room, doesn’t mean you have the time or budget to finish anything that large.

    Set the camera to 1/500th a second and keep the sun at your back. I’m sure the shots will be great!

    I have shots looking down on some bathtub gons, but I have no idea where they are (14,000 photos to look through). But I do know the shots of the weathering solutions cars are spot on. They base...

    Wrong. A bad move by the manufacturer would be making a product that won’t sell. They can’t afford to make things that will sit on their shelves for the next ten years. As far as cancellation the...

    The 1017s have a little more slink, because the spring is on the other side of the center post. With the 1017s you won’t see the spring like you can with the 1015s. I should have soaked mine in Micro...

    I like that they are going to sell the loading dock doors separately. That will expediate some scratch builds. I may get some to retrofit some of my early builds.
