    Using Graphite on Rail Heads to Improve Conductivity and Operation

    I've been using graphite for almost 20 years now. I was first told about it by a guy in the UK who ran his layouts at shows and exhibitions 5-6 times a year were failure was not an option. His take, which I followed was before using graphite for the first time, thoroughly clean all track and...

    Running Bear's January 2020 Coffee Shop

    A short anti-Model Railroader Magazine rant. At this point I wouldn’t give Model Railroader Magazine even 1 cent of my money.

    Favorite Locomotive

    I like tank locos as far as steamers.....and I love the RS series of diesels. As far as models....I like any that can run dead slow and smooth and that have no motor or decoder noise.

    Terry..sorry you have to go through all this. I say B or adjust it to the switchers and shorter cars. No matter how small a place you end up moving into you can still have a small switching layout that will give you pleasure to build, scenic and run. Heck a 6ft or 8ft long by 1ft wide board can...
