    Got a couple of questions for you all. My S-2 stopped working with the lights. I can't remember which one was right, 0 or 1 too turn on lights in dcc. Second, where can i find parts for locos like, hand rails, ect. I need to dress up a couple of the locos.

    Some may be in stock, such as Atlas or Kato. Check their web sites. Otherwise, you can check swap meets, or try placing a Wanted ad here in our Swap Meet section.

    I have been looking around for different pieces. Bachmann has some of what i need so i am going to make a order on what i have seen.Mike at Fifer hobby has some too. If i make the rails for those engines what size wire to use? I don't like the plastic rails they use

    I finished the painting but still got to detail yet. I hate those handrails. The ones on the 44toner are small enough that i like them. The NW-2 has the rails taken off and that S-2 is going to be removed. I thought i had some black numbers around here but cannot find them. time to order more. Shots below smoke

    Modeling in HOn30 and N scales, I keep several sizes on hand. Perhaps look at .010"?

    In there Jewelry dept, i found super fine wire. 28 gauge it says. Looks way better than what came with the engines. I got more numbers and letters coming too. So i can work on building railings for the engines. i will make a few shots later when i can get it right.

    So, working with fine wire is no joy! hehe I got some new tools to help with the bending and shaping of the fine wire for the railings ill get some shots when i get into it. I am almost not able to see the pieces so i am pretty sure it won't show in pictures.

    Nice!

    Did you scavenge the tank off a tank car, or scratch build it too?

    The colors are awesome!

    Scratch built. I have about 20 different structures i scratch built. Have about 12 built from Republic Locomotive works and one other from Wathers and two i can't remember who made the kits. All are wood for the most part. I like the wood kits better than plastic.
