    Then, on to detailing. The goal is to make the loco resemble #618... it won't be perfect (the nitpicker in my can see a number of discrepancies). But it should have the general appearance of #618....
  4. Bashing UP #618 from A Bachman 2-8-0: Phase 2. RE-detailing the loco shell.

    A few months back I posted the results of the first phase of my project to re-imagine a Bachmann 2-8-0 as U.P./O.S.L./H.V.R.R #618. Phase 1 was installing a Tsunami sound into a MP Vandy tender.

    I would add that you CAN run two (or more!) independently controlled locos (meaning not as a consist) simultaneously using just the PowerCab... using the "Recall" key to swap between locos. I have...

    As others indicated, the NCE PowerCab is a complete starter system... nothing else needed to get started.

    I started with my PowerCab, and my introduction to DCC/sound in N scale, just a little...

    It's possible to measure speeds and speed match while CV 3 & 4 are set... as long as sufficient time/distance is provided to allow the locos to reach speed before timing them.

    I don't speed match...

    As in NtheBasement said, once cleared, you can't recall the consist. OTOH, it is so easy to set it up (seems like a lot of steps. but it really is easy), why worry about it?

    There are a few other...

    I saw a post that gave a very simple explanation, but it is easier to explain that it is to find the post...

    I do believe it was a C&S car I patterned it after, taking liberties where size or availability of materials required. Seems to me there was an article or drawing I saw in NG&SL Gazette about that...

    Thanks! I think the operative should be changed to "were"... in my youth. My eyes and hands aren't what they used to be. But, on the upside, my pocket book is (somewhat) bigger!
