    Welcome to the forum. I'm assuming the story continues... maybe early steam in N scale now? You have to make a few posts before you can upload pictures (it's a way of weeding out spam) but once you...

    I think you're right - sent them an email this morning. I'll post back when they answer.

    Great idea, but no luck. I did discover that programing different values into CV50 (which is supposed to select the whistle type) just selects different, non-whistle sounds... so I can choose...

    I'm doing the same thing! This week I put together the base (all foam so it's easy to move around, and the cutting and gluing part was pretty much all me) and this weekend we've been putting on the...

    This layout is a project with my 4 year old son, who has long taken an interest in dad's layout, making stuff, and running trains as fast as they will go :) It's a simple loop, no turnouts for him...

    Thanks guys, got it working again. I never did spot the exact problem, but it had to have been the wires to the motor. I noticed the motor wasn't sitting quite square in the plastic motor saddle...

    Bought some Unitrack for a project with my son. It doesn't look too exciting yet, but it was fun taking him to the train store to get it, and this should be good fun together.

    I like it. This is northern California coast, redwoods country, like where the Northwestern Pacific actually runs right? I've been to that coast and think you did a good job.
