Re: TT-Tracks

The TT-Tracks website now has a new home. The DNS server I get my domain from (EasyDNS) also has a Hobby Web hosting for a few $$ Last night I figured out the last hoop I had to jump though to get online. The basic home page is up and I will be working on the others over the following weeks, taking ...

Re: NMRA 2021 in Santa Clara California

This week would have been the convention in Santa Clara. Of course Covid caused it to be cancelled. Had it still been on, I would have been on the road, leaving southern Oregon about now, looking to arrived in Santa Clara sometime this afternoon. However the live event did not happen, but they are h...

Re: 2021 Shows in Greater Vancouver

Sad to say Chilliwack has cancelled their 2021 show.
That makes a clean sweep for local 2021 shows.
Hopefully things are back to normal for 2022.

Re: Video of the Day

An exception might be the trestles at the southern end of the Fraser River crossing, south of Vancouver British Columbia. The rail line goes from Vancouver to Seattle Washington. (Canadian National and BNSF) I have crossed it on Amtrak many times. One photo, looking south, shows the northern end at...

Re: Video of the Day

Yes. This is a mind-blowing layout. The ferry and the truck are radio-controlled models. It's always nice to watch the train traffic. @Bill Dixon: Are there no more wooden trestles in Canada that trains roll over every day? But it is still the case in your neighboring country. I suspect that there ...

Re: TT-Tracks

How about an adjustable 3rd rail? With a long series of parallel stepper motors or something similar. :smile: That would work for straight track, but not curves. If I was going to add a rail for HOn30, I would think about HOn3 as well. But neither would be done until I acquired a rail bender. Bendi...

Feels good.
Sweet! I got my second of AZ today! :)
