Jasco Prep & Prime Discontinued

I checked the Jasco website and they have discontinued their Prep and Prime product. I know it was recommended by Jack Bodenmann as a way to prep metal before applying a self-etching primer. I have a brass caboose to paint for a friend. Are there any similar/alternative products to the Jasco Prep an...

Re: Pacific Fruit Express Reefer Kits - 1½" & 1" Scale

WOW! The car looks great! Can't wait to order some. I usually use waterslide decals on my cars but that might be an issue with the grooved siding of the reefers. Not sure how well vinyl graphics would work in this instance either since I have never used Vinyl. When you do the 1" prototype would it b...

Re: Coloured graphics?

I have used waterslides for years with no issues. They are much thinner than vinyl although I plan on using vinyl in the near future. I model in 1" scale and lots of times I need small lettering which is too small to do in Vinyl. The other posters are correct you will definitely need to use a clear ...

Waterproof Glue For A Coal Load

Does anyone know of a waterproof glue that works well to glue down a coal load in a hopper car? A friend and I bought some hoppers off DLS a few years ago that has a dummy coal load. The original owner said it was glued down using regular white glue. It works great until the car gets wet and the wat...

Re: Programming Sabertooth 2x32

Yea I find the documentation is certainly lacking. Like you have to be an engineering type to really just figure it out on your own. I also think if they just added a few more features to the boards without having to do custom user modes it would be perfect. Including some of the features you are tr...

Re: Oil firing in 1" scale

You should talk to the Eccentric Engineer AKA Anthony Duarte. He sells an atomizer for smaller fireboxes. I believe he has a couple of 1" engines that he oil fires and they seem to run and steam well. https://www.eccentricengineer.com/atomizing-oil-burner/atomizer-for-small-fireboxes https://www.you...

Re: Pacific Fruit Express Reefer Kits - 1½" & 1" Scale

I know my friend Mark and I would be interested in a few 1" scale ones, once we see what the completed prototype looks like and cost etc.

Re: Your RR grading methods??

On my friends backyard railroad we apply the herbicide Casoron. It's a pre-emergent herbicide that you apply in the early spring before things start growing. It will also kill small stuff that hasn't really established itself. I think it works by starving the roots of water or something like that. O...

Cast Iron Valve Rings

A friend of mine was wondering if there are any suppliers of cast iron valve rings on this side of the atlantic now that Coles is no longer in business. He is looking for rings that are 1" by 3/32.
