    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...

  • 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!

    Realistic curves are a primary feature on a model railroad. The tightest curve on mine is 48" radius, while other 90 degree turns are well over 100".
