    I don't really care much for the look of these newer diesels, but holy cow that looks incredible. I'd scoop that up in heartbeat anyways (if I was in HO) just because of how sharp that thing is.

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunately the information on all three producers is VERY scarce and doesn't really help much in determining who made it exactly, but it does lead me to believe that this...
  3. Can anyone shed light on this Baldwin DR6/BP20 long shark I just bought?

    So I can't for the life of me find any mention that anyone has ever produced the Baldwin long shark in N-scale, so when I saw this on Ebay I just had to pick it up. I'm just wondering if any has any...

    Don't see anything like this every day. Wonder if it's just a freelance model or if it's got a prototype:

    Clearly some expert opinions there.

    I had no idea. I'm not to familiar with Amtrak operations. Interesting picture though. Are those two old Santa Fe 'Hi-Levels' flanking a single Superliner in that pic?

    100% they could, but it's a more complicated affair than systems that detect issues with rails or Positive Train Control systems.

    The problem is that railroad crossings have a much wider variety...
  8. Never seen a train hit a car hauler before.

    This is a pretty interesting video that popped up today, probably one of the most spectacular RR crossing accidents I've seen. Thankfully only minor injuries. Must have been pretty shocking to be a...

    Well I figured it out, and now I am getting the same results as before, but it's not as convenient.

    You have to search for something in 'Model Railroads & Trains' and then once you're at the...

    Ebay really messed up. I almost never use specific searches, and almost always just browse by category. Nothing comes up now. Don't they realize not everyone wants to search for every single name...
  11. American Limited Passenger Car Core Kit Substitutes?

    Are there any alternatives to the American Limited passenger car core kits? It doesn't seem like they are available anymore.

    Thanks guys. I've already worked easements into my top level, but it's a bit tricky on the bottom level due to how much I am trying to cram into the space. I'll get it worked out hopefully. I'll...
  13. Tighter radius with easements vs. larger overall radius

    I'm planning my layout (again) right now, and I'm wondering whether or not I should go with the widest radius curves I can fit, or if I should make them a bit tighter to put easements on them. Right...

    I have a set of those, and they are good pullers (all BLI locos are), but I'm kind of put off by BLI diesels right now. I've had nothing but problems with the electrical ever since I've bought them....

    Yep. Part of that might be the fact that a lot of European cities are ancient compared to US cities, with buildings and roadways sometimes going on 200-300 years old, even closer to 500+ years in...

    I don't think anyone's brought up operational flexibility yet. You can't easily re-route your trains to different destinations based on demand like an airliner can. You have to follow train tracks,...

    That's pretty insane. I have an EM-1, but it's pretty pricey for a loco that stays behind the backdrop most of the time. At least I know it will perform the climb without any help, which is good...

    Best n-scale pullers

    What are the strongest pullers you can get in N-scale? I'm looking for a behind the scenes pusher and puller to help trains up the grades I have designed in my staging areas and helix. It doesn't...

    BLI Pennsylvania P5's, new for 2021/22

    I haven't seen anything else posted about this, so just a heads up.

    Broadway Limited is producing a Pennsylvania P5 in N scale. Looks like they are all boxcabs, which is disappointing since it...

    I had no idea they even made silica cat litter. Got some and wrapped the shells and chassis in paper and will leave them there for a day or two. I got some vinegar as well but I still haven't seen...

    Yeah I took the shells off best I could and tried to dab off as much as I could. They're sitting in a tupperware container full of rice right now to try and get as much as possible. My big concern is...

    I bought this N scale storage box not knowing if I'd ever use it. Boy am I glad I bought it. Really handy with all my soaked boxes.
