    This is a bit of a shot in the dark. So, long story short, I'm in the process of building my O scale Lionel layout and was given some Lionel 1122 non-derailing turnouts that had been modified for accessory power and included a controller that was supposed to prevent the turnout coil from...

    I have some of my father's HO train kits and parts that I am selling off. I came across a bunch of turnouts (Atlas #6) that my father appears to have modified. It looks like he used something like a dremel tool on the underside of the turnout to cut the connectors which tie the switch and...
  3. HO Scale
    Hello!! Due to the width of my layout i'm stuck with mostly 18" radius turns and switches. Where I could i used 22" turns and #6 turnouts. All loco's run fine alone, thru turns, switches, turnouts - all good. The larger 6 wheel loco's are fine pulling any style cars on a simple 18" radius...

    Hello! I have several Atlas curved turnouts on my new layout, part numbers 595 and 596. They work great! However, I have tried to use them on a section of my layout that I plan to run Amtrak loco's and passenger cars on. The passenger cars are derailing going INTO the turnout (1 track to 2...

Now I searched the web high and low to see if anyone had tried it. No posted any YouTube videos on how to set this circuit up. The closes video you...

    Hi all, I am really baffled and would appreciate your help! I have a DCC layout with a reverse loop at each end. There is an auto reverse module at each loop, I gapped the track in the same places, but only one of the reverse loops is working. Here is a photo...

    The construction of the Chillicothe Subdivision of my ATSF layout is moving along nicely, but I’ve hit a few snags. Hope you guys have the fix. I’m modeling in HO gauge and using all PECO track with electrofrogs. I’m having some problems at some turnouts. All my TOs are on double layers of 3/16”...
