    Sometimes preorders and a great deal of patience are the only way to be sure of getting an item. I can appreciate the difficulty of making a profit in model railroad manufacturing. I can see the necessity of making an announcement with a best guess of when there will be enough preorders to justify a production run. And then waiting until you actually have those orders.
    Cheers!

    Will you need to add a DCC decoder? If there was an easy conversion to DCC this would be appealing.

    An all Kato order arrived today.





    Ran the 5022B unit and noticed one of the rear footsteps was at a slight angle. Managed to nudge it straight, hopefully that's the only issue (and won't be a future one to deal with)

    With sound, it already has a decoder installed. If you get one without a decoder, the Kato decoders for these are just "drop in," although the sound version may require some fiddling for the speaker. They take three decoders - one for the power car and sound, and one each for the end cars for lights.

    Things...



    And stuff...



    HO scale as I'm naughty and don't model in N anymore. But this should please Moose.

    2x Bachmann DCC Nickel Plate Berkshires - one in NKP, one in PM. Both will be turned into L&N M1's.
    1x Proto 2000 0-6-0 with DCC sound - will become an Interstate loco.
    1x Bachmann Pennsy K4 - will become an Interstate loco
    1x United Brass Southern PS-4

    Finally, a dirty disesel... a Bachmann RS3 DCC Sound in Interstate orange. That one is still in the post on it's way to me, so no Moose Tax.

    @Moose2013 aye, I'm going full on steam era Interstate railroad for my planned HO scale layout, though I already have 60's/70's and modern stock I can run on it too, if I fancy shaking things up a bit. The plan is to go full on winter in the Appalachians with the layout, with heavy snow all over the scenery.

    @BruceNscale

    -I had my printer basically running 24/7 (until I punctured the FEP film in the vat - extras are on the way). Don't use the scraper tool on the FEP film if you have a failed print!
    A couple of prints failed due to not having the bed level or not tightening the build plate enough. Learning as I go, and having a blast!

    I ordered UV LEDs to build a "curing chamber".

    I'll upload some pics later. After printing some fun widgets off of thingiverse, I started to look into N scale items...... that was when I punctured the FEP film.

    I'm not allowed to run the train, the whistle I can't blow. I'm not allowed to say how fast the Railroad Train can go.
    I'm not allowed to shoot off steam, nor even clang the bell. But let the damned Train jump the track, and see who catches hell!

    Hi Bo D,

    I've been using microfiber cloth to clean the FEP screen. I haven't had a failure stick to the FEP..yet.

    Have you seen the five pack of resin tanks with covers on Amazon? It looks like an easy way to minimize cleanup and provide FEP backup.
    Happy Modeling

    You going to really like the printers. I bought 2 Photon's a year ago, and I've used one so much one of the pixels burned out in one of them the other day. I just ordered a new replacement screen for it. I gone through over 19 liters of resin so far, mostly printing trucks and cars. I've also printed a lot of windows and doors and other detail items as I've need them.
    I use Sketchup to draw up what I need. The cars and trucks were found on the web, but needed a lot of work to get them to print. I spent several hours on a couple and could never get them to print right, so I gave up on them.

    Next rake of five open gondolas arrived, but hang on ... the top one is wrong for the box and not what I want.
    Contacted the seller and he excused politely. Turns out he had one more rake in the pipeline and offered a markdown on the shipping. Works for me, so one more rake coming in soon




    Brass kit from Shapeways to convert a German BR50 steamer to a Danish class N - my favorite.
    The kit contains all the typical Danish looking items such as the smoke chamber door, lower and wider smoke stack, the half-skirt (affectionately known as the "garden bench") and the two rounded snow plows, as well as various bits and bobs like safety valves, air pump etc.
    I've done about a dozen of these conversions in H0 and it will be fun to do it in N scale.
