Re: KM1 System 7 DCC Controller

KM1 Modellbau doesn't have an English manual for the SC7. I have called them. It is intended for large scales.

You can try to translate the part you are interested in via www.deepl.com. In the German manual, you can mark the lines and copy them.

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

One technical challenge with the NYC cars, they have a cushion underframe. ... My approach is to take extended coupler housings. The coupler, together with the housing, thus protrudes further beyond the end wall. For example, I want to try MTL #1019 instead of #1015. And also with the medium shank ...

Re: Canadian steamers from German models...

How would you tackle powering the wheels of what are essentially freight car trucks? Either you try to continue using the tender from Tillig and possibly stretch it or you look for powered trucks that have the appropriate axle spacing. For example, from the Tillig Desiro with about 16mm. Extending ...

Re: Zeuke-TT, what's new?

I'm staying out of it this time. To be honest, I also have problems with this task. That I can recognize from afar the railroad company and car number is still possible, but also the year of construction and the car number range? Well, I don't know. :think: Curious about the solutions, which will be...

Re: Canadian steamers from German models...

The BR 50 really fits very well. You just have to build a long tender including drive. Enough space should be available. I have something similar in mind with the BR 38. The construction of a 4-4-2 Atlantic is planned. I hope the longer version of a BR 38 tender will be quite close to the American p...

Re: H.P. Products Stainless Steel Passenger Car

With Micro-Trains Line, it isn't the shaft that is longer. It is the housing of the coupler.

Link to the MTL #1017, because they aren't in the list

Re: H.P. Products Stainless Steel Passenger Car

This is a good idea for such a vintage car. The stripe on the Coach Car looks very good so far! Only I'm afraid, on the far right is missing some white paint next to the black triangle. So a 70-year-old model can be turned into something respectable after all. :thumbup: Link to the H.P. Products Co....
