  1. Painting, detailing and decaling
    Decals by Tichy Train Group. Paint is Tamiya, mix of XF-9, XF-10, and XF-7, using their gray rattle can primer. I sprayed a 10:1 thinned mix of base color. Cars are over-sprayed MTL I inherited from my father, who did not save their original boxes. (Apologies to PRR and NH fans.) The filmy...

    Hello all! You all may remember me as "that one guy that barged in many months ago asking about toy train track." Since that post, I have amassed a (currently very small) model train collection.

    Can anyone recommend a reputable repair person that would install MT couplers on my Kato F3 ABA set? I live near Sacramento CA. I don't have the boxes for them. I would rather not ship them. Thank you!
  4. N Scale
    Anybody have any experience with concor well cars? I've heard mixed critiques of concor products in general, but have little first hand experience. Mostly wondering if they are super light or properly weighted?
  5. For Sale or Trade (member-to-member)
    Looking to sell a lot of 8 DC N scale locomotives, most of which need work. Price includes shipping. I'll add pictures as soon as I can take them and post them from my phone. These first three are all from Lima, and have poor reviews on Spookshow.net. I could get them to come to life, but...

  7. Beginner Q & A
    I am currently designing my own layout and are considering putting in signals. If I am going to do it, I plan on using the Azatrax block signal system (Model railroad block signal control circuit), but I would like to know who makes good quality signals that aren't too complicated. I hear Custom...
  8. For Sale or Trade (member-to-member)
    After some much thought about our house size, I had decided to stay with only N scale stuff. O and HO are getting packed up in boxes and crates hoping to be used with future grand children. That means I will getting rid of some buildings, lights, and bridge structures over time. According to...

    Hi, I just joined this group. So glad to have found this. Years ago I bought a Bachmann Alaska RR set in HO. It was purely for display as I like to collect Alaska items, having been there on four different vacations. Now I want to get into running an N scale real layout. I have found prebuilt N...
  14. Beginner Q & A
    What is the best practice to anchor a 2'X4' N scale module to the wall? Preferably without support legs but I am open to throwing them on there if need be. My first thought was 3" x 3/8" lag bolts into the studs but I am open to other ways.
