    Just won/ordered an Rio Grande SD40T-2, my first n-scale engine about 35 years. Also a Trainworx Woodpacker 50' waffle box car. Those aren't even available in HO.

    One thing I'm having trouble finding is a Trainworx City Market 40' trailer. Anyone know where I can find one?

    Back in 1999, I purchased the Digitrax Empire Builder starter set which included a DB150 command station and a DT100 throttle. When I started building bedroom sized home layout, I had planned on having operating sessions with two to three operators, so I purchased a second DT100 throttle. Nineteen years later and the Left Hand Knobs on both DT100 are beginning to let me down, the response has become very erratic. It's been time for a new throttle for a few years now. Just a few weeks ago I was at the Altoona N scale show and I just couldn't pass up the price on a brand new DT500 throttle.

    As for that bedroom sized home layout, it became a part of history in 2005 when I had to move. Since I'm now an apartment dweller with a HCD layout, my new DT500 and UT4 throttles fulfill my current throttle needs. (y)

    The purple and white truck showed up with my 3 new Masterpiece Modules modules. I got a branch line, a single and a triple. This goes with my 2 doubles and a couple of U-turn modules I already have.

    C6841629-1B3C-4B29-963C-F4D8EA8A043D.jpeg I received this wood laser kit a few days ago and had fun building and modifying it to suite me. Still needs tweaking before it’s layout ready. It’s for my fledgling Nn3 mini layout.

    Nice work Jim, it's definitely a early 1900's building. Will fit in well on your layout. Looking forward to seeing more of your layout progress, it's been fun watching your work.

    Thanks, gentlemen. I’m so used to HO scale that N scale is quite challenging in some ways. Thank goodness for reading glasses! I don’t know how Z scale folks manage the fine work I’ve seen on here.
