    Hawks NEW "MHO Junction" layout

    Thread Starter: Hawkesburytrain

    Hey everyone, October is just around the corner and I should be starting with my new layout soon. I'm still finishing my basement, still about 1-2 weeks of work. For now, here's an almost final design. Since I'm not very electrically knowledge, I need help. I have a NCE Pro 5 system...

    I'll try this. The first pictures will be an overview of the layout. It's not a large layout, but as I have mentioned, I really enjoy switching, and this is what the layout was built for. The first picture is what I call Gallatin Junction (Gallatin Gateway) which is at one end of the line....

    Building the Whistle Stop RR

    Thread Starter: KB02

    After realizing that I have started about a dozen threads on different construction projects on my layout, I figured it was time to consolidate and have one thread as the layout is starting to get bigger and the "grand idea" is actually starting to take shape. So I hereby present the steps that...

    The decline in the number of model railroaders?

    Thread Starter: tomstockton

    In a different thread, but still here in the General Discussion group, there is a thread discussing the varying amount of participation on this (and other) forums. But "hidden" in that is something I've never considered, and it ties into the header of this thread: "The decline in the number of...

    Steam locomotive and cars derailing at crossing

    Thread Starter: Warpiper

    Hi every one. I'm having some problems with my Atlas HO 571 Code 83 track 12.5 degree crossing. Some of my cars (all plastic wheels) will jump the rail or rock side to side pretty bad and the new locomotive I got for Christmas will jump the track or have a wheel or 2 jump the track to some degree...

  • 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 suppose it is time to do up a permanent plan. Won't get to it today. I'll make some slight changes in the coming days. Mostly I'll change up the yard

    Garry - It's an idea Willie posted a few weeks ago - using roofing felt for streets/roads on a layout. Thought I'd give it a try.

    Review, Bachmann Light Pacific 4-6-2. BAC-52803

    My guess is that in the end, I will make very simple modifications to the loco to make it look more like a Northern Pacific Q-5. I've been burnt before

    In reality, I don't think much about this thread matters. As individuals, we have little we can do to change the direction this hobby is headed. However,
