    Spookshow, I realize this is a pretty specific question, but, how wide is the frame? Is there enough material up front to make a chopped nose and not wreck it? I foolishly built my DME SD9 and 10 out...

    I'm skeptical. You might make a few to help offset the cost of the jig and recover cost of materials, but your time will be a loss.

    I haven't pre-ordered yet, I want to back a road/scheme that will get produced (I plan on repainting anyway). What should I do, order an IC? or an ICG? or an IAIS? Argh.... I just want one! :(

    As an easy test, get yourself a Mehano C420 and put a decoder in it and see if you can tune it to run as smoothly as an Atlas C420. I have a hypothesis.

    How generous of you.

    You'll note that even Rick and Richard walk away when their offer would be insulting.

    I hate selling stuff because somebody always comes along and want's to explain to me why the price is too high and that I should be grateful for their lowball offer. I'd sooner throw some stuff in...

    Sure a lot of speculation and armchair opinions on this. 🤷

    I was looking forward to an Intermountain SD40-2 and Paducah Geep, a Bluford bay window, and missed out on this round of the FVM CNW...

    I'd welcome kits, like the old shake the box Roundhouse kits and the Precision Masters stuff. Easy to build, dirty them up a bit, and hit the rails to fill out the roster. The few Intermountain kits...

    I'd expect an SD70 to bind a bit and slow down on 11 and 9 3/4 curves. It'll go around them I'm sure, but I would not be surprised if it was balky about it.

    Looks great so far! Always better to do *something* than to do nothing while you plan for something!

    I pre-order stuff now and then. Like the Paducah GP10's. Gotta have one. Probably won't be re-run. I didn't pre-order some Trainworx gondolas, now they're unobtanium. Those aren't going to be re-run...
