Bachmann ALCo S4

I've added sunshades, front grabs, a bell and number boards to mine, and renumbered it to SP 1467, which was running out of San ...

Re: Quisling: constructing 16 feet of modular railroad

There was an SD7/GP9 combination seen on the Quisling Turn at last Saturday's Western Union January 2015 meet. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7465/15683588433_20077c575e_b.jpg Quisling Turn arriving at Quisling. by bxmoore , on Flickr https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7561/16308949822_6166323fdb_b.jpg ...

Re: Double-headed freight Cab-Forwards

The 2-8-8-2 AC-1 and AC-2 classes of Cab Forward were far less powerful than the big 4-8-8-2 locomotives from AC-4 to AC-12 (missing out the conventionally-built "cab-behind" AC-9). Also, the earlier classes were built for much slower running, and were withdrawn much earlier too, so we're really tal...

Re: Quisling: constructing 16 feet of modular railroad

Just about finished the fruit packing building, with the adding of a sawtooth roof and appropriate signs. https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8566/15934755037_9c4f09e59d_b.jpg Quisling Citrus Association 2 by bxmoore , on Flickr And I also used a Blair Line DIY sign kit (which I extended either side to g...

It's not been put onto the NMRA(BR) Google Calendar because the Organisers have not requested it be put on.

I've now added it.

Without the organiser(s) of any event letting us know of them, people can't expect the details to appear.

Re: Walthers powered crane

In respect of portraying accurate operations, I've just received the following information from a fellow SP fan in the US, who saw the video: I do know that such cranes - labeled by the manufacturer as LocoCranes - did operate in this fashion that your layout video illustrates. While doing general M...

Walthers powered crane

Recently, I completed a repaint job to a Walthers American powered crane, which I've numbered SPMW 4098, basing it on the actual SPMW 5595. I hand-brushed the SP orange over the original yellow, as it was too difficult to remove the rigging for a respray, and it seemed to turn out OK. I installed a ...

Re: Quisling CA, 1954

The module manages the era-shift most gracefully Brian. :) Most kind of you to say so, Mr Read. I'm also using it as a test for how my next home layout will look. Its primary function will be 1954, but there will also be early-eighties sessions too. Looking at lots of reference material, it's happi...

I added some switch stands to the module, and planted some 1954 stock and vehicles to take a few snaps. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7478/15249527174_b6f4708c72_b.jpg California Airframe Parts Co. by bxmoore , on Flickr https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8677/15685766109_ff441574b1_b.jpg Quisling by b...

Re: Quisling: constructing 16 feet of modular railroad

Hi Brian I'm intrigued by these Conrad switch machines, and they are so cheap! I've seen Conrad's web site at http://www.conrad-electronic.co.uk/ce/en/product/219998/ and its picture but there is no indication of how the machine is connected to the turnout when underneath. Is the tab bolted to the ...
