    Where does one acquire a "Track Mobile" and is it powered?

    I showed my girlfriend your pictures and said "It's amazing that all of that would fit in a computer desk" and she got really confused and I said it's like the trains I have, only far cooler.

    The FDT models are quite nice, but could stand to have the front dummy coupler replaced with a live coupler. Takes some work though. A tad finiky on power pickup as well, might stand to have a bit more weightr tyo help that issue, but they are great pullers (better pushers by 1/2 a car) for having what is essentially an oversized Handcar motor in them.

    If you want to put lights on it though, go the DC route and wire in the decoder by hand, much easier.

    Hi, thanks for the kind words. It's a Overland Track Mobile with a noisy Motor :) Sound's a bit like my old Märklin Z scale Engines -lol-

    Hello Friends,

    Jered Slusser's fantastic D&TS Hopper arrived here in Switzerland and I was able to get some outside pictures in the sun.
