    Brilliant! The NRM is the most impressive railway museum I've visited by far. I'm glad to see they're treating it as they should.

    I'm so happy to see this one completed! Looks fabulous, too bad about the noise ;) I'm really impressed by that pull, I usually need to hook up 4 geeps to pull a train that it probably could!

    After eating that grass, they would leave very tiny piles of vomit to clean up!

    Reducing locomotive start voltage

    I've reached the limits of DCC programming (at least without replacing a ton of decoders) so my short question is this: What can you do, mechanically, to have a motor turn more freely and reduce the...

    I'm curious, is there some reason why you wouldn't want to use that decoder? I'm very fond of them myself.

    Disconnects for headlight wires?

    So I'm thinking of putting headlights in the shell as opposed to on the frame, and I'm toying with the idea of having a quick connect of some sort on the wires so I can remove the shell easily. Is...

    Sorry, I'm being unclear! I can do the electrical work required. I'd rather not attach an LED to the shell, but I'd like to know how I should go about getting the light into the headlight and making...
  8. Adding a headlight to a light-less model?

    I'm picking up a couple of second hand geeps which have what appear to be Miniatures by Eric barrel headlights - Cast without a hole and non-functioning. It's my first crack at it, but what would be...

    It's probably the contact tabs. There's 2 sets of 2 for the speakers and motor, and I've found them to be unreliable. With the decoder out, bend them up to get better contact with the board. Should...

    I would branch out for your options, if possible. First off, MRC sound decoders are utter crap. Terrible speakers, garbage sound files, pathetic motor control, few CVs.

    I always liked these quirky engines, another attempt after the Shays to fight the Big Hill. In the end, the 2.2% through the Spiral Tunnels made the engineering easier! These units and others that...

    I fully recommend Fox Valley's 0.540" 33" semiscale wheelsets. I have a number of cars equipped with them. They look good and operate very well. I find BLMA looks better, but they're skinny and...

    I use skewers and no remote uncoupling, for a number of reasons.



    Cost and effort of installation. Skewers are cheap!
    Flexibility. While there are quite a few spots at the near end of leads...

    Probably some little category or location quirk in their system. Email them about it and I'm sure they'll take care of it. I wouldn't order with the charge there.

    Just take a before photo...there really aren't that many components, and as long as you don't let any scurry off while you're milling, it's something you'll get over very quickly.

    Those look like the correct solder points, and 30 should work well.

    Cutting static grass?

    I've found the nearest colour of static grass to what I want, but it only comes in 6mm (read: 1m or 3' tall) I, of course, want varied lengths of wild grass around my fields. Would the best way to go...

    I ended up changing all mine out for HO width ties because the points would break off quite frequently. They still break off on occasion (once every session or three) but I've become quite adept at...

    I am unbelievably in love with this! It looks fantastic, and it's a 100% unique model in N! I would absolutely love to have it replicate its 1930s tour across the Kootenay and Kettle.
