Re: 2015 Train Mountain Triennial Video

The producer is on another road trip and as soon as he gets back he should be good to go. I have seen the 'final' cut and it looks awesome. Lot's of those killer aerial quad-copter shots. Russ

He has had some growing pains with it as most of us do, but seems to be running fine now. In regards to 1.5 vs 1.6 vs 1.7 the main single reason for doing any of these vari...

Re: Riding Car Seat Question

A few years ago I made up some 'portable' seats that fit the Train Mountain flat cars. Here is the link to that old pdf file. Current versions of these seats are only 8 inches high instead of the original 12 inches. They saw plenty of use during the recent Triennial. Russ http://hobby-tronics.com/tr...

Re: They just don't get it

I happen to own an electric mogul, it was purchased for the express purpose of running indoors during special events at our local fairgrounds and introducing folks to the riding scale hobby. It smokes, it chuffs, it pulls 6 adults, and seems to make the same size smiles as most coal burners do at ou...

Re: 1/4th Scale 3D printed SP Pacific

"donation/sale as a fundraiser?" I would think because of the tremendous amount of 'parts' that a subscription would work as a fund raiser long term. I'm thinking a website that we would have access to for downloading this months goodies. Love what you are doing and can't wait until some of dem' der...

Re: Scribing wood or scribed wood?

Chooch - depends on the road as to board width also age of car. 2 1/2 scale 3 inch board = .6, 4 inch = .8, while 1 1/2 inch scale 3 inch board = .375, 4 inch = .5.

Re: Fun new youtube video of Train Mountain

You see we started with around 185 trains for the first IBLS meet in 2000. In 2003 we added a few more trains BUT everone that returned brought ONE more car. Thats 200 plu...
