    Merry Christmas to all! (with a short story)

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! And a touching Christmas story: A couple were in a busy shopping center just before Christmas. The wife suddenly noticed that her husband was missing and as they had a lot to do, she called him on the mobile. The wife said " Where are you, you know...

    Looking for a video

    I'm hoping someone might know of a layout video I've been scouring the internet for. It’s HO scale and something like 4x8, 3x7, 5x6 or something and actually has two levels. I believe it was signaled and one side had an over under bridge scene. I also remember it being CSX, maybe NS with...

    Modelling with Krystal Klear

    Thought I’d start a discussion about using Krystal Klear or similar products. What method do you use and what do you use it for? Photos would really help! I've tried making windows with less than favourable results.

    Loco / tender ID

    Would anyone happen to know which of these tenders goes with which of these locos? I’m thinking the 999 is the New York Central and 666 is the Penn Central, based on the looks of the bodies and wheels. Thanx!

    Another Ebay mystery

    Okay we all know the pros and cons of Feebay and there’s tons of topics both praising and blasting it. I still like to peruse the listings tho for hard to find items or to get an idea of what an item is fetching on the market and I do have some goodies that I’ll likely list there. For the most...

    Modeller or railfan?

    So I was talking to a buddy earlier (from six ft away of course) who is a railfan but not a model railroader which got me wondering if all model railroaders are railfans. Might seem odd to some that I’m a modeller but really not all that interested in the real thing. Oh sure, my heart beats just...

    M.E. Bridge beam parts?

    Can anyone id the parts (on the sprue) that come with the bridge beams in Micro Engineering's HO 50’ plate girder kit 80-166? A friend is using them for a bridge project and there's surprisingly little info out there. I suspect they may be top rails. Thanx!

    Looking 4 Clarkesville Station

    I’m looking for a discontinued HO scale Walthers kit, Clarkesville Station. Part # 933-3063 There’s actually one on Feebay right now for $30 or best offer, I offered $28.50 ($40.00 Cdn) and was turned down so it’s off my radar for now. Yeah I know it’s only a buck fifty... it’s a principals...

    Inkster Park

    As the train room slowly takes shape I’m going thru pictures of places and things I’d like to incorporate into the new layout. One place I’m hoping to include in one form or another is Inkster Park, an industrial area in north west Winnipeg, MB. Even tho some customers and tracks have...

    Yet another layout starting

    Well hot on the heels of Jeromes building thread (grin) I’ve started constructing a new “chamber of the sacred rails”. The original room was roughly ten by ten, I’ve about doubled the length. I’ll post progress as it happens. Here’s the room with the wall taken out, you can see where it was framed.

    ACK! I've gone to the dark side!

    Well I've been holding true to the Burlington Northern for many years now and have managed to fight off any and all temptation to go with the merger. Then the other day I bought some rolling stock in a bulk deal and this followed me home! It's just too pretty to not keep it and being a Kato it...

    April 2019 photo fun

    Well I got a real surprise in the mail the other day (thanx Jerome!) and I figure it's worthy of starting a "MPF" thread! :D (monthly photo fun?) Here's A&P 1206 bringing FMP 63 into Spencer. I hear 63 will take over switching chores at the paper mill and 1206 will be heading over to the oil...
