    One of my good friends is having trouble with his Accucraft C19. He’s taken it to the Accucraft dealer in the Bay Area and has gotten little help in fixing his locomotive.

    Hello all, I skipped this step a few months ago when I first joined the forum. But I figure my first anniversary (a little late) of large scale is a good chance to get it done. I've had a Wilesco Model steam roller since 8th grade, used it through high school to do a steam unit for the middle...
