    Old vs new 4-6-0

    Bought a newer Bachmann 4-6-0 to 'replace' my Varney 4-6-0. I was a bit surprised at the size difference. Height and length. I've speed matched the Bachmann (slowed it down) to a MDC old time 2-8-0. The Varney is going to get a can motor, it already has a decoder.

    Rear light in an F7, anyone?

    Has anyone installed a working rear light in an F7 (or F9, or E unit)? I hate to waste the decoder wires :)

    Turntable alignment copied from prototype

    I copied this turntable alignment trick from prototype in Stasburg PA, Pennsylvania railroad museum. The Walthers 90' turntable kit is not a precise instrument. Thin plastic cut from blister pack.
