    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...

    This is the new place. Mind the fresh paint, and check your cups for sawdust.

    Construction of the Philly & Scranton

    Thread Starter: otiscnj

    Figured I'd start this thread with a copy of the trackplan I'm starting to build. Up to now, I've been focused on coming up with the trackplan for the Philly & Scranton, which I envision as a branch of the North East Corridor. I've mocked up at full scale some of the locations shown on the plan...

  • About the "Home" Page

    This page will eventually be the landing page for the entire website.

    Currently it's still under construction, so we're directing folks to the Forum page, which will also be the most familiar page for our existing members.

    This page will features news, information, new posts and photo gallery images.

    At the moment it has some generic categories and sections that came with the software, so there's some weird sections like "cooking" and "travel". They'll go away before too long, but at the moment our first priority is getting the forum back online and running smoothly.

    I cut that thin circuit trace off even with the edge of the case. Flipped it over and used a sharp X-Acto blade to scrape off the green coating. Must

    The 73400 decoder is the exact same, only it's "blank" and you have to load your own file. The 50327 is a decent speaker. Each speaker is 8
