    Help Please....design a dbl-deck layout in its own Hand-House shed

    Thread Starter: beiland

    Objective: I want to build a double-deck, around-the-wall, peninsula style layout in a 12x16 shed I have prepared for the job.

    My ONE and ONLY project ...

    Thread Starter: wombat457

    I have to be honest, I am a little hesitant to post anything about this project as some of my previous ventures have not come to fruition for various reasons. This however; is something I have been working on for a couple of weeks and is the 5th or 6th design. For those who know me, you will...

    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...

    Since when did M.B. Klein become so slow?

    Thread Starter: TexasAndy

    I placed an order early Monday morning and they still have not shipped it...what gives??? This is pretty unusual for them but I find there are complaints of this all over the web now. Anyone else had issues recently?

  • 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!

    No problem, just thought you'd like to see how it would look in 3D. Feel free to tell me to butt out if you think I am interfering though.

    How many prefer to by DCC equipped vs. DCC ready?

    Definitely, pre-installed! I model N-scale, and most of my already-DCC'd locos were already fairly well discounted by MTS, either equaling the cost of

    Nice straight forward design that offers some interaction.

    As Gene said, I was buying N Scale Peco track and switches, made in the UK not the US.
