    Your not the only one who needs a bigger layout! I'm planning to increase mine considerably and still don't know if I can fit everything I already have on it.

    From eBay, various stuff: a 16 VAC to 5 VDC converter, two similar AC-DC converter kits to add my own voltage regulator, some optical fibre for head- and tail lights on the TEE Gottardo, and (now that I was paying shipping anyway) a roll of thin solder.

    The AC-DC converters are for concept testing. I plan to install a 16 VAC feeder through my modules for accessories (can't use track power as per Fremo std) and then derive any local DC voltages on each modules as needed.

    I don't know how I pulled this off? I actually won my FIRST Hallmark locomotive less than $80! Supposedly never have been used, from an estate sale! Free shipping to boot!! I will post photos of it whenever I receive it though I will have it in hand due to my upcoming flight. I will need to get a display case for this one! I know that these are finicky for running. So this will be for display only. I will be converting the rest of my other locomotives to DCC about half are already

    Just ordered 4 of these (different numbers) from Midwest Model Railroad:

    Atlas 50004240 - ACF 60ft Pax Coach NYC:



    These will be repainted to the Royal Pacific Railway scheme, OR, another paint scheme depending on how I feel

    The one thing I should have done, and didn't, was to check their minimum radius

    My buddy sent me a link to the sale on adding sound at a discount, so naturally I had to jump in as the prices are crazy good. So now I have two dash9 Operator(less detailed) units along with the decoders and speakers at about $160 each, total, on the way. SP of course.

    Ordered through my local hobby shop. Paid $13 more than I would have from M.B. Klein but gotta try to keep LHS in business. We did have a screw up on it as I ordered two #6 turnouts and he ordered #4s. The wood filler I got from Lowe's, which is right next door to my LHS. Handy that. The garage will go with one of the houses I built. I tried to get a different garage for each house.
    Cheers all and have a nice weekend.

    Mt Atlas 60' Coach Cars arrived this morning and much to my surprise - they are a nice looking car. A darker green than in the picture above and a perfect length! Now, lets see how they run

    I just may have to see about a 60' diner and a observation car to go with them - maybe

    Some more goodies before the month is over.
    Two more Kato turnouts. I need to sit down and check my count and amount to see how many I need versus how many I have. The rerailer is a handy thing to have but Kato is stingy in giving them out. Even though I have bought several Kato "sets" it seems you only get them with the ones that include a power pack. So now I have two to lose. The Sherman tank is another impulse buy. No Sherman tanks as memorials or running around in my area that I know of. Bowser has come out with a line of 3-D printed objects for HO and N scale and this is one of them The other stuff are snow plows, ice breakers, brackets for welded rail trains and other "loads".
    Cheers! Have a nice weekend all.

    Went to my local big box hardware store today and bought 2 1/2 inch thick sheets of plywood.

    A good friend helped me cut them into 2 N-Trak 4 foot corners and 4 2ft x 4ft module pieces.

    Also bought some parts to begin building storage shelves along one wall in the train room.

    One more time. I think I have a problem. Local hobby Shop opened up to walk in but with restrictions like must wear a mask (which I appreciate) and no more than 8 people in store at a time. Never saw that many in the store so shouldn't be a problem. Supposed to do distancing, not always easy in a hobby shop but I tried. He has been slowly building his N scale selection so I need to try to support him more.
    The #6 turnouts I ordered came in. They were $8 cheaper than the #4 he originally got me, so he actually owed me money. The roof details are mainly for the brewery I am working on, but I am sure I won't use them all and it will help other projects. CA glue, my bottle is getting pretty gummy. A good small 20/0 brush (made in USA!). Cinders for my culm loader project.
    Cheers!

    Why am I having problems with the photo? I uploaded last night and it looked fine, but today I just see the words "attachment and some numbers". I re-uploaded it and it shows but the attachment is still there and I can't see that in the edit mode to delete it.
