For real-world diesels, per some ICC or DOT regulation dating back to the early road switchers; the "front" of a locomotive must be identified by the letter "F". I've attached an example. I don't...

The short line out here still uses second-hand MP15ACs. And I would never laugh at anyone using anything Great Northern. :)

Get an N scale PODS (~$11.00/pair at most online hobby shops). It's 16' long, 8' wide, and 8˝' high. It will help you visualize distances. :)

West What scale is Hornby N?

Does anyone know whether Hornby N scale is 1:160 or "British N gauge" at 1:148 (like Oxford Diecast)? modeltrainstuff.com is offering four Hornby food carts in HO and N. :confused:

I've got the two circles of Bachmann EZ-track and power packs from Plywood Prairie - I just don't have anywhere to set it up but the kitchen floor. And my house is infested with cats. :)

Look at it this way: this is also a Bachmann product - a high short hood ATSF GP50 in a sort-of Warbonnet paint scheme numbered 8759. The real ATSF 8759 is a U36C! :p

ATSF 3808 wasn't a GP39-2 but a GP40X. Maybe he's annoyed that the model is of a "stock" GP40 but the number Bachmann gave it was of a pre-production model - there were only 23 of the things.
