I think working sanders is very important in winter.


What a great idea.
 
However, I cannot imagine a track powered loco would be able to pick up any power once the track was sanded.
 
That leaves only one viable power source, Batt............

. . . . . all that is in now but actually working ! (not all of us are techies or wish to waste time or feel they have time, learning electronics)

_actual working PnP ! (same oh 'cause maybe sometime us with trackpower and a "transformer 30' away from a derailment or turnout", may wish to try out batt' on a unit or two)

_nicely detailed on the outside (easier to remove if to fine for the end-use(r) than add-on)

_LEDs (if "wrong" colour lightly paint them over as i believe GS in his tech pages told us for stock bluish light, lite coat of tamiya yellow(?) does turn things birght white! did that on my first LED bulb conversion in a 44T which went dead on me a yr later . . .hmmm still have to go under th hood and find where likely my amateur soldering broke !)


_smoke for the ones that seem to need it (like when other don't like fine detai, l i tend to leave mine turned off the majority of the time and the only time it actually looks real is when the air is reaaal calm or your layout is indoors and hearing about what some of the older units do melted plastic . . . i may disconnect the darn things totally . . . . leave them in for the few grams they weigh . .)


_ and to also find a a big baggie of AristoCraft brakewheels hiding under the engine hood !!


. . . . now time to do some domestic dutie so later I can sched some more fun time with the railway . . outside yesterday during the continuing "big melt", taking a few pics of 'spotted rolling stock (albeit yrs ago when they were factory fresh vs a week or more in revenue service aka weathered . . . . . Marty is that 200grit ? )

later,

doug c


. . . . amoeba in electronics

HAAAAA HAAAAA.....
but any way, MARTY made me some real cool looking wheel racks for some of my flat cars and some hatchs for a couple of gravel cars im going to kit bash soon. but if you get a chance i could use 4 more hatchs that will give me enough to do a total of 4 cars. thanks again Marty..
