Thought we’d start with a question that drives me nuts too:
“Good morning thanks for all the info so far .I.VE GOT A QUESTION FOR YA ITS. DRIVING ME NUTS WHY DO SOME ENGINES STAY ON TRACK AND OTHER FALL OFF ALWAYS AT THE SAME PLACE . I’VE RELAID TRACK 4 TIMES SO IF YOU HAVE ANY ANSWERS WOULD BE GREATLY RECEIVED, thanks again
I purchased a magnetic tray, which I can use for servicing my locos.
I can put the screws and other metal parts in it.
Result I don’t lose the screws and other metal fiddly parts.
For realistic point operation, I insert insulated joiners about 18 inches leading into points on the switching tracks. If a train approaches the points, and the points are NOT set for thru, he train will stop at a realistic location before the points.
Its amazing how most of us use ‘junk’ and ‘REAL’ materials. Simple economics I guess !
Keep up the good work.
You have erroneously credited “Dennis” with the making Waves, when it was my artwork and submission about using the Silicone sealant, and expired credit card.
Oops. Sorry Dennis.
Well this is where im at tonight. Looking to try and incorporate the turn table connected up to a shutting yard and a engine shed, but we will see how it goes, and with a 4year old helper (you hear her in the video) she makes the job that little bit longer bless 🙂
“Let’s try this again.This is a diagram for relay and reed switch’s for signal’s:
Attached, I hope, are two photographs I think you might enjoy.
One is of a working railroad here in Western Maryland. My wife and I have taken this tour and we loved it. The foliage in autumn is beautiful.
The other is a steam engine, #777 that you may have to keep watered all summer long.
Hope you liked today’s post. Please keep them rolling in.
And don’t forget to bag a great deal with the latest ‘ebay cheat sheet‘.
