    SW1s only had one stack, it looks like you’re missing the bell and mount.

    The train slowly grinds its way into tunnel 24. In the grand tradition of Espee, they have again managed to place the two locomotives that would be least affected by being trailing units through a tunnel in the lead, leaving the others gasping for air…

    Not everything is spit-and-polish on the railroad. Here we have a quartet of dirty EMDs getting ready to head over the mountain with a train of equally grubby boxcars.

    I’ve opted to model the time before the “grunge era” took hold, and Espee occasionally washed their engines…

    Yes, he sidestepped that, and said PD would make the deliberate/accident determination. I opted not to press him on it, because I know it's a really tough time for him right now. It was not in California.

    I just spent the last couple of hours talking to a friend. He's pretty upset, and it may take some time for him to come to terms with it. He was running his train, and ran over a pedestrian. Plus, he's having trouble from the railroad over it. He works for a major railroad in the Western half of...

    I think the PS5 uses NVME SSD, and the PS4 uses SATA. The average person can't really tell the difference from performing basic tasks, the big difference is when it starts doing large file movements.

    I took the liberty of doing a little research. In your part of the country there should be all manner of rotted-out Tiguans sitting in junkyards. Let your fingers do the walking, and find a mechanic with a decent reputation to swap a used transmission into it. Know then, the clock is ticking...

    Accessing and replacing the drive in one of those is obscenely easy. Remove one screw on a corner of the unit, and the drive slides out. It is a standard 2.5" laptop drive, though it does have to be formatted for the PS4. Mine had a 500GB hdd, I replaced it with a 1TB SSD. It does boot and load...

    It was a combination of being forced to further refine the fuel, and higher demand by way of all those new diesel pickups and cars.

    I had one of these when I had HO scale. It ran without issue on my layout with a mix of 22" and 24" sectional curved track. The only thing I did was fab a slightly longer drawbar to go between the engine and tender. And it didn't have to be much longer, either. Maybe 1/8".

    I've got a PS4, with about a dozen games, that has languished since my wife died. We used to play games together, to help with her coordination.
