    Unless my search function is malfunctioning, I see no talk about the upcoming NG convention in Hickory, NC. I'll be there Wednesday only, driving up in the morning, returning home at night. I'll have a sales table, look for Southern Steam Trains, at table J8. A variety of NG items. Hope to...

    This video looked cute and gave me a chuckle. Good for the imagination. I may be tempted to model the Red Arrow some day.

    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...

    I have a lot of LGB locomotives and cars, German and Swiss models mostly. I also have a lot of track, switches, etc., and several G-Scale buildings, German and Swiss. I WANT TO GIVE ALL OF THIS TO A G-SCALE club or group or individual. I live in Iowa, and the trains all belonged to my late...

    I'm looking to finally fire up my Accucraft live steam Lilly Belle after all these years. I'm not much for chasing after engines, especially on a garden railroad, so I'm thinking of adding a RC servo to at least control the J-bar. Has anyone done this or something similar? I've heard good...

    Hey gang, Managed to score a 1:29 AML switcher on teh EBays and it finally got here today. Allegedly it sat in a glass case of a NJ hobby shop for years without ever having been run. Judging from the dust on her and the lack of any oil anywhere, I'd say that's the truth. It didn't spoil her...

    I just got a Ruby #5. The first runs did not go so well, turns out I had a stuck pressure relief valve, so I got the pressure way too high. Accucraft quickly sent me a new valve, and all is well, though I am still running it with the dome off to watch the valve. 8^) My main problem is that...
