  1. Hi I am new to the group, just want to share a video of my N scale layout, I use only Kato Unitrack and the majority of my trains are Kato, with a few Atlas and Tomix. A video is here Comments and suggestions are welcome
  2. Big diesel action, a Lionel Tacoma Rail SD-70 with a Lionel Northern Pacific Heritage helper and a MTH Imperial SD-70 Union Pacific Spirit hauling the freight last week on the S&Y RR. Bill
  3. Beginner Q & A
    Due to an upcoming move (tho the house aint sold yet) I will probably need to rebuild my track, I'm wondering whether to go to code 100 instead of 83. Reason being my Bigboy and other articulated Locos dont run well on my current Code 83 track, tho I think this is more to do with the tightness...
  4. Anyone know where I can find or what the exact name is called for finding a guide that will assist me in keeping the correct radius for my 36” flex track? Thank you in advance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
