    Thanks for the feedback, MRLdave. Yes this will be static. I may motorize it later.

    Mounting Trucks on N Scale chassis – Help Needed

    Thanks, Glen. I hadn't thought about bolster pins. BTW, to keep it simple, I will not actually be motorizing the model at this point, just making it look like one. The attached photos show how the motorized version differs from the cars that trail it. (Photos are courtesy of lirrhistory.com...

    Mounting Trucks on N Scale chassis – Help Needed

    The LIRR MP-54 Project: This is my first attempt at building a kit in N Scale. The prototype was used on the long gone Whitestone Branch of the Long Island Railroad, a portion of which I will be modeling. Paint scheme will be PRR Tuscan Red with black roof and chassis. They were run as...

    N Scale Test Car

    Additonal Info Here is some additional info I found from Micro-Trains when I bought my B&O test car: "...Since the railroads' revenues were dependent on the correct measurement of loaded cars, great emphasis was placed on proper maintenance of the scales. The scale test cars were used to...

    running an engine after 29 years

    I basically treat it the same as a new loco I'm breaking in...I run it forward and reverse many times, with many stops, and varying speeds, starting with short distances in each direction and getting progressively longer. Don't know if this is the best way but it seems to work for me.

    POLL: New "N" Scale Power

    How about a Baldwin 2-6-2 Tank Engine a.k.a. 'ping pong' engine, either the Jersey Central variation or a LIRR Class S51?... ...or powered and un-powered NYC Subway cars (R17, R21, or R22). They make them in HO scale.

    Uncoupling tools

    I keep a Rix Uncoupling Tool at each end of my layout. I also have rerailers around my layout, but keep a Rix Rail It nearby for rerailing in those oddball locations. They're both cheap and simple to use.

    Thanks for commenting on my album, Deltared4. I decided to experiment with cardboard 3D modeling techniques, similar to those used in architecture and landscape architecture, for conceptual models. It works out that the cardboard is about 2' thick in N scale. I drew the contours in 2D as a...

    N scale vehicles

    I know that there are a few kits out there, but I would love some plain old Model T and A Ford cars and trucks that are ready to run! ...maybe a 1958 Ford Edsel Citation?
