    Martin Luther King Day Give Away

    Damn, I forgot to tell you that my guess was in metric. You'd have to double my number then take off fifty four for the current exchange rate. Honest mistake, no worries, just send me the wheels and couplers, BigG can have the car. Congrats BigG and thanx Jerome! :cool:

    What Other Brands Have DCC and Sound in their O-Scale 2-Rail 2-8-0 Engines?

    I don’t think you’ll get a lot of answers here Hal, you’re in a class of your own. Maybe try here: Or these guys: If I ever change scales again I would look at a proto 48 switching layout.

    “Don’t touch the screen” 😆 This is the first thing that came to mind...

    Try this: You can bookmark it for when the time comes.

    Control of Crossovers,...doubles & singles

    I think you’re correct on the geometry of the various angles being problematic, (I came up with that all by myself!), but I think it could be done with some flexible connectors and a center pivot. Being that it’s in a difficult to get to location I’d maybe give another thought to powered switch...

    Martin Luther King Day Give Away

    Hmmm I don’t need the boxcar so much but I do need the wheelsets! 😉 If this were the price is right I guess I’d say one dollar, but put me down for oh... 149.

    Grain Terminal Build

    Tom that looks extremely close to the color I use! I believe it’s Krylon as well but the label is long gone from running hot water over it.

    A new beginning...JRs UPRR.

    Very nice! I used to drive one exactly like it but in red. Ok, I guess not exactly... Then one day the boss got it painted into company colors, we were so disappointed.

    Mail Call! Railway Post Office, commonly abbreviated as RPO has rolled in!
