    Spookshow has it right. People selling are hoping that the buyer doesn't do their homework and just buying on impulse. The "gotta have it" syndrome. I learned the hard way about Bachmann. I will not...

    Never put them on live track! The original boxes stated that fact in capital letters. Plastic track only was recommended. My twin 5 year old boys have them so they can "have trains like daddy does"....

    I bought the Bachmann one. Grand total of $3.50. That's shipping and sales tax. It's long and not as steep as others mentioned. Nothing fancy but it beats trying to rail by "God's" hand any day.

    Label makers for numbers & letters?

    Has anyone used a label maker with clear "tape" to numbers and/or put road names on? It seems to be a simple idea. Does sealing help hide the film like a decal?

    I'm also interested in this. Although I'm in a different era, the thought of enough of us grouping together to offset the cost would be worth it,

    If watching the trains pass by my workplace counts as railfanning then I do both. I don't have the time to take pictures. But it makes for an "unofficial break". Most of my work travels parallels...

    I will check it out MoPac. But I've found that usually the best way is trial & error dry fit. Planning on using full size cardboard template. I do better hands on than on a screen.
