Re: JMRI ops

Yes, yes and yes. :) There is a Return When Empty (RWE) function, or you can set it so that empties from a specific industry go to a specific place, which personally I think is a bit easier to deal with. We've had layouts where there was a car repair shop, and we had a "for repair" load that fed the...

Re: JMRI ops

I think it needs to be clear that there's a labour intensive side to this as well - there's a definate data entry element, and you then can spend hours "playing" to fine tune some elements if you so desire. CC&WB does have an advantage in potentially a simpler setup on the day, but I think you then ...

Re: Detailing an Atlas Trainman GP38-2

Really good Mike. If anyone is detailing one that's maybe a bit closer to stock and doesn't already have a stock of common parts, Cal Scale does a detailing pack for the Trainman GP38-2/GP39-2 which I suspect works out slightly cheaper than buying multiple packs of bits: http://www.bowser-trains.com...

Re: Weathering another boxcar

Not neccesarily about the roof, but one thing - the underframe of a car that weathered won't be black with some rusty bits. I would tend to properly paint (not just drybrush) any visible parts (trucks, wheel faces, brake gear, bolsters, cushion pockets) brown, the acrylic Humbrol underframe dirt is ...

Re: Making decals

Then you should spray with vaenish. Should this be matt or gloss? One coat or 2,3 or 4 thin coats, leaving minimum of 30 minutes between coats? Then leave for at least 24 hours to set. I'm assuming what you have is inkjet waterslide? Varnish finish doesn't matter, it's not the top coat, all you're ...
