You're right, #2 screws longer than 1" are pretty scarce! :D

I like the wood glue option, I'll have to keep that in mind. :)

The Eagles somehow managed a win last night in spite of stinking out the stadium! If they make it to the playoffs, I predict neither the Eagles or the Cowboys will make it very deep in the post...

That's really odd, the 40VA would certainly say that's not a 90W transformer, yet the same number is used and labeled 90 watts.

All the post-war transformers were rated on input power, the max...

Yep, that's an AC set. As far as rolling stock, anything that you see that looks good does fine. The lobster claw couplers on O-gauge 3-rail are all compatible. If you shop the used market, you...

Don't know if Lionel has them, but they're #2 screws, you're probably looking for inch and a half screws for 1" foam and into the plywood.

The ZW-C was a good idea with poor implementation. I think the success of the MTH Z-4000 convinced Lionel that the ZW-L design was the way to go.

The 1033 at $35 (http://www.tranz4mr.com/O_For_Sale.html#17) is hard to beat if the 40W one was sufficient.

OTOH, my personal favorite for PW transformers is the bargain priced KW...

FWIW, next time you do one of these, consider putting the speaker in the fuel tank. You can just drill holes in the bottom and the speaker has a nice enclosure. It's a good idea to plug up the two...

That is a Williams True Blast Plus. I had it left over from a command upgrade. You mentioned wanting another one, but I only had one. ;)

When you are running at half throttle with the pure sine wave transformer, the peak voltage is less than when you're running with a chopped wave transformer. The smoke heater will heat faster and...

This is an Old Wives Tale. The only issue with the sine wave is that running in conventional mode, you tend to get somewhat less smoke at a given throttle setting. It doesn't do anything bad to the...
