    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...

    Model Railroading in the 50s and 60s.

    Thread Starter: NP2626

    Along with my posts about: How many articles John Allen wrote in Model Railroader, Did you build a layout when you were a kid, Sentimental Journey: DC power Packs, Upgrading old freight Equipment, etc... I think I have shown that I enjoy taking looks back to what was available, how things where...

    Information for just starting out in the hobby!

    Thread Starter: NP2626

    All of us started out at some point. Starting is maybe the hardest point for everyone, you have little information to go on and are contemplating building a Model Railroad! What scale should you chose? What should be your minimum radius? What era should you model? The list goes on and on. ...

    N-scale Kato Unitrack + Unitram layout: Small-build layout progress thread.

    Thread Starter: Chevron_GATX

    I finally decided to go N-scale! After wracking my brain as to where to construct a layout, I just went into the garage and measured my Home Depot-built workbench cabinets. It runs most of the width of the garage, but the total area of the countertops measures only 20" x 12'. Though, I figure I can...

  • 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!

    Why did Bowser stop making Steam Locomotives?

    I had an Old Lady Consolidation, which was actually a Varney design that ran like a Swiss watch and was very powerful. I sold it on Ebay as I wasn't
