Damn man that sux. You should just do what I do - keep the trains and throw it on the card! Bad advice I know - but my priorities are what they are.

i look at it this way, i could use it as a learning experience. ill start buying some old bttb stuff, learn totake it apart and put it back together again. maybe even purchase those replacement motors i see for sale on ebay. and then when i get good and cocky, buy me some n scale dcc with sound and try to install them. like putting an sd 40 sound decoder in a bttb br 119!

Man! That track's way too close to the edge of the world for me. Any derailments and you will be starting over once again! At least carpeting is softer than a concrete or tile floor!

I agree with Bill. At least add some type of barrier all around. Doesn't need to be much. Probably 1/2 inch above the surface will be enough.

I'm not sure if ½ inch will be enough. At the modell railway club we have Plexiglas at those spots where the track is too close to the edge. So it doesn't block the view too much. Our barriers are about 1 ½ or 2 inches high.

for anyone deciding to use kuehn track an alternative to there crappy electrical hook up is using an atlas trainman n scale terminal rail joiners. they are almost just the same size as tt railjoiners and would work on tillig track also. the rail joiners are from an atlas trainman set i had and can be purchased at any model railroad shop separatly.

Thanks!
Although I doubt I'll find Atlas accessories "at any model railroad shop" in Russia... :?
