Something different for me is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.

Rick I showed that long ago. But will revisit it for you.

Cut the existing fuel tank off first.


Then using aluminum duct work tape, form a new tank. It doesn't have to be perfect.


Then wreck and smash it to your needs. I fill inside the tank with super glue using a toothpick. It will harden up and be permanent.

Mike, not running any except on the test track for now (9 foot straight away on a shelf). Building a 3rd garage currently, that will be the train room by late this year. 400+ engines, 30 or so are DCC, DCC/sound units. I'm planning a hybrid system with both DC and DCC.
