    Phishing or SPAM junk mail alert (Legit but annoying)

    Perhaps it isn't bogus, but I received about 12 of them in a row suggesting a photo of mine (gave the title) was moved to a more appropriate gallery and to view it 'here' with a hyperlink. This email purports to come from I hope I help someone to avoid it...

    Wolfang (WT fan) Dudler has passed on

    I recall him letting us know over on trainboard maybe eight months ago that he had developed a very serious illness. I contacted him right away to express my concern and to offer him my good wishes. He seemed resigned to his early passing, as I understood his words, and stated that he wouldn't...

    Walthers Code 83 30 degree crossing?

    Anyone know if the Walthers Code 83 30 degree crossing, the one with the blackened frogs, needs to be gapped? I have tested the tracks leading to a Peco insulfrog Code 83 $6 turnout, gapped just beyond the frog for both routes, and I have soldered curved lengths that meet at the crossing, and...

    Ditch light replacements - Genesis SD75M

    Hi, fellas. I have two Genesis SD75M's, but from different issues. My fixit guy says one of my ditch light bulbs is burned out and needs replacing. (Trust me, I am not one for fiddling with tiny things...we just don't get along well together, and he loves to fiddle with toy trains.) This...

    Hi, fellas...I'm back after an extended absence. Long story, but I recall pitching decks, waves, the Darwin Channel, penguins on Magdallena Island, circum-navigating Horn Island, walking through the marvellous cities of Santiago, Buenos Aires, and Rio de Janeiro. Weird, but I am awake and...

    Photo Contest Questions

    First, are the two contests currently 'in session' extended, or will they be closed off soon and voting started? Secondly, we are a full week into February with no announcement yet of the theme. Just wondering what's up. -Crandell

    BLI going toe-to-toe with MTH! Oh, yeah!

    Well, in case you haven't seen or heard, BLI has officially announced that it will produce and deliver by 2010 a new, all scratched, and better version of the UP 9000 series 4-12-2! At least, it seems that it will be improved over MTH in a few ways, although the 22" radius still seems to be...

    Spectrum and Tsunami don't see eye-to-eye

    I have a Tsunami heavy steam installed in a Spectrum J Class 4-8-4. I have left the engine to run around my layout for a couple of hours now while I do other things hoping to break it in. From a dead stop, when I dial in speed steps between 1 and about 20, the engine takes off without any...

    I made some switch stands

    I have no switch stands, as my yard images clearly show. I had sprung for some Caboose ground throws many moons ago, and decided, once the first was erected, that it was far too large to be on the layout. Dang. I was pondering this afternoon, while building a Kanamodel CPR style water...
