Re: A great weathering resource....

Thanks for the link, I guess this might be my next stop to look for tips and tricks , now that the 'modeltrainsweathered' website/forum has been down for ages, and hadn't found anywhere else where this sort of thing was shown in such a good way.

Re: Short UP Auto Train

I don't disagree with you both , and you should take my remark with a couple of grains of salt. :-) There is a prototype for everything, but you are right, a collection of oddballs and exceptions doesn't look realistic at all. The reality for many of us is that we have usually limited space, so runn...

Re: My HO Switching Layout - Galatia, KS

I am really starting to like this new forum, nice layout indeed, I love the small GE's. It is great to see the enthusiasm of people now posting on here, hopefully more will follow. On my part, i will try to 'present' my home layout this coming week on here. (it's by far not anywhere near finished, b...

Striving to being closer to the Prototype

(Split from this topic - viewtopic.php?f=30&t=95)

see, our relatively short trains on our model railroads are prototypical, no need for 100's of cars :-)

Re: Suggestion box

Here's a suggestion, not so much in regards to the forum, but rather how some posts here could be used in due course. Let's say someone has posted a couple of posts on how they build a structure, would it be an idea to collate those posts into an article and re-use it (photo's and all) in Roundhouse...

Re: BNSF Horsethief Bridge N Scale

Hi Anthony, clicking on your photo brought me to your Flickr page, and I have been browsing through your photo's a little bit. I like the way you made the slide detector fences , and dug a channel for foundation etc. I think you should post in the scenery construction section of this forum, how you ...

Re: BNSF Horsethief Bridge N Scale

You've done a great job there on the scenery and right of way, textures and colours are great.
Particularly for N scale , it is sometimes hard to find the right textures for groundfoam etc (at least it was when I was an N scaler back in the '80's).

Well done!

Re: Suggestion box

Hi Alan, no that's not swearing in my book. :-) I'm not sure in regards to the functionality you're suggesting, but will have a look. the forum is also still new to me. :-) Koos Alan, I've looked, and yes you can change the order of things as a general setting. go to your 'user control panel', and t...

Re: Suggestion box

Yes that could work,although there's plenty of subjects on both, but better to put some separation in early I guess. I'm currently watching the new modeltrains video scenery videos they released (scenery outside the box, by Mike Colfalone) , which I downloaded. (took several hours to do, I opted for...

Re: Suggestion box

Can we include a section on railroad books, magazines and video sources that people can recommend to read? Both prototype and modeling?
Perhaps' favourite RR book I'm reading ' at the moment or similar?

Re: Photos and Copyright

I guess the safest bet is to always contact the author of that photo, and ask permission. Copyrights are a hornets nest, and are dealt with differently around the world. I personally wouldn't have any problem with people using my photo's (as long as no money is being made with it) without permission...

Re: My NMRA-BR spec module

Here's a little progress on the module. Today I've made a set of legs and 'elevated' one of the two boards to a 40"+ height. I still need to fit the legs with adjustable feet for uneven floors and be able to raise the rail head to the 45" standard of NMRA-BR draft spec. The other board is on the flo...

Re: Car Cards & way bills

I am not familiar with those Rodders, I know about the Micromark cards though, they look suitable, but I do like the design Mike Ruby suggests (and which I've seen at Western Union meets previously). I'm going to take another look at those. I want to make car cards including their pictures for easie...
