Call it 3 percent (30‰ = 3%). Or has a ramp in your country a gradient in promille?

Re: A useful product? Knuckle couplings for N scale NEM poc

It is the norm of the European Union of Model Railroad and Railroad Friends (MOROP). And it is standard at commercial models.

The NEM 358 is the coupling pocket. The opposite is NEM 357.

Re: A useful product? Knuckle couplings for N scale NEM poc

Very useful. Some of the mechanics are from Tillig, like for the E-7. But the page is temporarily down. A coupler like these? http://www.dapol.co.uk/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=362&category_id=30&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&...

Re: Gettin the goop off?

I use a 2 percent sodium hydroxide solution (Natronlauge NaOH). In a vessel is the model for a few hours (3-4) placed in the liquid.

You can also use a ultrasonic cleaner with water and a little bit detergent.

Re: 2 new TT scale wagons

I have contacted the designer and he has scaling the high cube and the gondola to TT. It wasn't printable with White Stronge Flexible (WSF). It´s more work for him, to make it able to print in WSF.

Re: Model Train Show Vancouver 12-13 November

@Arseny: universals = universal joints to hold the drive shaft. When I have time, I write a topic about my way to motorize a GP.

The Lok-N-Roll chassis for the F3 has the drive shafts in a line. See here.
