Locomotive Axle Boxes

Or are they left with ample pedestal side clearance for some tilt for uneven track. How much? I made a program to NC the hourglass slots but wish to check here wi...

Re: Mind-Blowing Ebay Electronics Deals

Yes, sorry for the highjack too. I was basically substantiating what was being discussed about some of the questionable components (resistors for example) available out there for great prices compared to Dale, Ohmite and other really good quality manufacturers. But case by case, you may not need aud...

Re: Mind-Blowing Ebay Electronics Deals

And if you work with Arduino or Blue Berry you can buy knock offs of them and any peripheral card that you want for pennies that mimic the real thing using the 'real thing' software to program them. It's like Trump says - "China is eating our lunch". a) Arduino comes from Italy. b) It's Open Source...

Re: Anyone know what has happened to RMI Railworks?

It must be that they are short handed and not able to keep up - at least that is what I would like to believe. I have talked to them (David Coster) a number of times on another number that isn't related to RMI at all, but another company - "Dial Security", but I get stories. I've tried to remain up ...

Cannot make contact - The RMI web site Store is not totally completed but neither the phone number nor email work.... We ordered eight steel wheels from them - only received part of the order and half of what we received are junk. Shipping damage on half of what we received (one with an apparent pre...
