    National Model Railroad Association - Achievement Award

    Dave, I don't think anybody mentioned that it was a competition or a contest, like you said it's about reaching the 87.5 points. You're also NOT competing against prototype because I was told that a lot of things I've done (articles, buildings, etc) would qualify for an achievement and I'm...

    National Model Railroad Association - Achievement Award

    Hi Greg, Two people from the NMRA came over to my house today to evaluate what I had done so far on my layout, to see if I would qualify for the Golden Spike Award. After spending 1 1/2 hrs looking at my layout, me explaining my layout and how I had done things, they said I had done more than...

    Thanks Yannis WOW, 2 replies out of 600 views.... This place hasn't changed a bit in the past year. This forum is dying, except for the coffee shop of course. Social media is the place to be. Same picture, more than 5,000 views and 140 replies (just for your info)

    Laying Rail in my Helix, hints/suggestions

    Absolutely not. There is no ballast on the pictures. I had my layout printed 1:1, installed roadbed where the tracks were going to be and held with push pins on 1/2 inch plywood. Then the tracks were laid on the roadbed center. Once each circle done, they were than assemble one at a time because...

    Where is everone?

    Chuck, unfortunately lots of people don't know how to use the social media platform. For example, when I see a post that I like, I will save it, therefore if it gets buried, I don't care because it is saved in my list so that I can go back to it any time. People that are scared of their identity...

    Where is everone?

    I personally went to better pastures where more people are involve. I still stick around in case some valuable info would help me in my layout. But I've noticed that if you want coffee, talk about temperature and post a few pictures here and there, this is the place. If you post in another...

    Laying Rail in my Helix, hints/suggestions

    I made my circles first, added the roadbed, than the tracks. Once all of them done I just needed to assemble them, add the road bed and track missing to join each circle. I used carpenter glue for the roadbed and white glue for the tracks. I used a paper template for my roadbed and the tracks...
