Re: Lionel F3 + Tillig BR218

I have sent Jan a PM about 36 inch wheels. My approach with Fox Valley wheels and bearing inserts might not be successful, so it's good to have another option. Several months ago I lent out one of the brass castings so we could have resin castings copied from it. The resin copies are shaped to accep...

Re: 2020 Western Rails

Yes, Voytek will attend.
Our straight Chilliwack layout needed the wall behind us. I think Western Rails puts vendors along the walls, not layouts.

Re: Lionel F3 + Tillig BR218

Nothing further has been done to the F3 diesels. During building renovations my apartment is in disarray. I used the time through the holidays to prepare for more work on the models. So I'll show some related items. I bought a second hand air compressor for the airbrush which I have had for at least...

Re: End of TT Empire

DnS track is Krueger, made in Germany, according to the label as shown in attached photo. I bought some from DnS back in the 90's. It is flex track in half metre lengths. It is code 70, I believe, compatible with Kuehn track. I used the flex track with Kuehn's starter set track for a show display. T...

Re: TT-Tracks

Your method used with real coal should be much different...none of that plastic shine. Well, it's true that my eyes aren't as good as they were. Close up the BTTB plastic load of coal in the centre looks better. The real coal looks mushy to me compared to the plastic load. Looking at the loads agai...

Re: TT-Tracks

My coal loads for BTTB wagons were made by coating the tops of the bases with acrylic matte medium and sprinkling the coal onto them. Bases were foam, flat wooden sticks in layers, or styrene in layers. Styrene was rather heavy. The coat of acrylic medium was thick and so was the layer of coal press...

Re: HP 4-6-6-4 Articulated

If our (Vancouver layout) loop returns to the same track then the train must be short enough to clear the turnout. But our main loops return to a parallel track. The limit is what is drawing current and triggering the frog juicer, and that would be just the locomotive - at least on a freight train. ...

Re: 2019 Vancouver Train Expo

We have considered plastic screens for some modules. We haven't yet determined a good fastening and transport method. Still thinking about it.. Tried plastic screens fastened to the modules. I still have them. Children grabbed the plastic and dislodged the modules. Think up some other idea, please....
