Lord of the Isles LOTW 002.jpg
Well, Mr. Warp, the more I follow you the more I see we have
in common. Both love North American old school, and both
have been attacked by the British Invasion. My interest in
OO dates from getting a Wren wind up set in 1966, and then
I got pulled into Tyco, badly, in the past five years. Feel
a bit divided in my loyalties.
I tried holding costs down on the OO by using Atlas code 100
track and turnouts and crossings. What an error that was.
The tender drives choked on the points and the rather
attractive Bachmann stuff routinely flipped their pilot wheels
off the frogs. The deep flanged older OO would ride up on
the frogs, as well, and equally so in the crossings. Finally
bit the bullet and purchased a quantity of Hornby OO track
and have been quite pleased with the excellent quality.
I see you've been having some trouble, too.
