    Best Manufacturer?

    I am sure this question is almost entirely opinionated but it begs to be asked either way. I am looking to buy some rolling stock for my layout and I am wondering which manufacturer(s) I should look towards. I am looking to get some open and covered hoppers.

    Deciding on Stock and Locos... Help

    Deciding on Stock and Locos... Help

    I don't know if anyone has watched the movie in a long time but if you have... Does anyone know what the locomotive is at the end of Back to the Future 3, the one that destroys the DeLorean? I'd love to run that one on my layout as well :)

    Track Question

    Well first off, thanks for the help. Gives me a little to consider but I think sticking with the track I already have seems to make the most sense. I like the idea of painting the track ties, never would have thought of that. Not sure if anyone is reading this but I see a lot of DCC ready and...

    Track Question

    First time poster, long time train enthusiast. I've had trains since the age of 8 but I have never built a detailed model. Now that I've gotten a bit older and have a shop to work in I figure it is about time. My question today is about track. I have a lot of Atlas code 80 track, lots of flex...
