    Ralph, you could do far worse than use that design in the Popular Mechanics. I wouldn't go with the track plan, it's not the greatest...but the hinged 4x8 thing worked well. The only drawback is...

    That's exactly what I used. I have 1/2" plywood sitting on a frame of 1 x 4's, but mine is a table on wheels. Mostly in your case the wood would be to keep the foam from cracking in half or...

    I'd still go with some form of plywood under the foam. You could get away with something thin, like 1/4".

    It might help if you get out a sharpie and figure out where your streets and such would go, and then look at how you'd get to the industries on them via rail. The branches would be built to get to...

    Laser Cut Modeling

    I know that the standard procedure has been to paint items FIRST and then assemble, but I've found that you don't have to worry much about warpage of pieces if you paint AFTER you assemble. Of...

    Try and buy would be GREAT for us, but I don't know how good it would be for retailers...I fear that they -- being in the middle -- will be the ones left holding the bag. The return ratio would...

    Clever! Nicely done.

    I have a thing about jewel cases, be it for cassettes, CD's, trains or anything. I repurpose all mine as recycling material. :D

  16. Issue with Kato FEF-3 - Front Pilot Derails after sitting for a while.

    It would seem that, over time and sitting, the spring under the front set of pilot wheels becomes weak and compressed, causing the front set of wheels to derail much more easily. Part of it is...
