    Building the Pinacle Creek Mining & Timber Co. RR

    Thread Starter: HOexplorer

    This is my opening thread on the PCM&T. It is a small mining layout in SE Alaska up one of the fjords. It is October 1931. Shown is the woodworking being done over my old N scale layout. This layout will have three levels. The highest level will be reached by a switchback. There will be two...

    New Layout for LASM

    Thread Starter: logandsawman

    My first question is, do the delayed uncouplers work, like the magnet that goes under the track, manufactured by Kadee, Bachmann, ? ; and has anyone tried the hump in the classification yard? So the uncoupled cars roll into the classification area? KJC has posted a folded dogbone design that...

    This is the new place. Don't forget to wipe your feet, and shut the door to keep the A/C in.

    Building the Canyon Diablo Bridge

    Thread Starter: D&J RailRoad

    I am starting this thread as I suspect there will be a lot of activity in the construction I am undertaking. I have a section of my empire that was designed to have a bridge installed. At the time of construction, I didn't have any idea of what kind of bridge I was going to put there. The...

  • Welcome to ModelRailroadForums.com Version 4.0

    Welcome to our new server and the new version of Vbulletin!

    We have upgraded the forum to provide you with a better user experience. The new server should be faster, and the forum software has some nice new features as well as the usual general improvements and security upgrades.

    While it may look different, the place works pretty much the same as always. You should be able to do everything you could previously.

    One thing that has changed is that the Photo Gallery has a new location. In order to fully integrate it with the forum software, it needed to be on the same domain. It is now located at http://modelrailroadforums.com/photos This change will solve the log in issues that some members experienced at the previous gallery. Now, one log in will work for the forum, the photo gallery and model railroad product review section. They're also all have tabs in the top menu bar, so you can easily move from area to area on the site.

    Welcome to our new home, hope you enjoy the improvements!

    Baldwin 'Babyface' Interest Survey

    I don't get the dc/dcc concern, any chassis can be either way, it is a non-electrical concern. The only concern I can think of to make the shell as universal

    Lloyd - Nice job on the scenery. I like the manner in which you blended the foreground into the backdrop as well.

    Stupid diesel Locomotive question....

    Mike - They do it that way, so when they get to their destination, they don't have to turn them around to return. Eliminates the need for a turntable.
