Re: Model Railroad Academy

Strangely, just after clicking the submit button, I received confirmation of my renewal cancellation. So, problem solved - but why did it take 3 separate mailings? My experience of the Academy is otherwise positive, so if other members add to this thread, it may assist those yet to make a decision o...

Model Railroad Academy

Sometime back, members were forwarded details of the above - a "free" tutorial style video service. Upon registering, a more comprehensive paid for service was offered. As an inducement, the first year's membership was at a greatly reduced sum. Cheap enough to take a chance with, so I did. As a site...

Loksound chip for Bachmann GE 45 ton switcher.

I love this little switcher, and it comes dcc equipped, but unfortunately no sound. I know Tsunami do a very small chip for this loco with a vaguely specific sound on it - the switcher actually has twin Cummins 1500hp prime movers - but I would prefer a Loksound. But I don't know which Loksound to g...
