    • Hello Tony!
      I was able to drive a little further to the points.
      But since I had fed only DC and not DCC, I could not drive over the points, because the frog juicer were not active. Planned is everything as far as the train stations, but until I can start building one of the two major stations will certainly pass some time. Regards Thomas
    • Hi Thomas, wow working snow plow, is that as far as it went or could go further, I the one with the spinning blades, can you get an actual working HO scale one . Is that it till spring now, you can work on those spirals inside the nice warm house, work has come to a halt my end of the world, too dam hot  peaking 41++ degrees Friday and storms. Have stared work on my bridge something different and the way it is going will work holding up the 14 foot span, wish I had an air conditioned work shop. How are you going with the planning of your station complex, have started planning mine, modeled on   Denver union Station  Colorado , Griffs home state., will have working Union Station Travel train . Tony from hot down under
    • Back on the bridge construction, I out half  inch on bottom of the rail deck to an inch and the same on the rail deck side mainly to see more of the trains, was 12 mm is in stead of wasting  the off cuts I used them on the bridge hangers and thicker length for bottom   length the hangers  sit on . The arch them be screwed on to the side of the road deck, the road deck be made so the  center of it lift out to get to the trains I is getting pretty  hot, hopping to cut the other two sections today,, depending on how hot it is, 31 today , get this 41 degrees Friday , no work outside.   Tony from down under  
    • Today in Game of Trains: Winter is coming!
    • Well, two things. The Gilpin tramway was built up around a valley. The slow geared locos would take longer to get to some places than you could walk it yourself. I have always liked Narrow gauge trains, but to do it "The right Way" costs money. So all of this is just a fantasy train. I am trying to keep things somewhat simple and fun for now. Scratch building also takes time. I will try not to think much beyond my next build with the Gilpin caboose. Well, ok... What I will need then is a small string of Gilpin ore cars. And... The Gilpin never had a box car, but I would like a box car. Here, go to this link of thumb nails, then when you click one there is a zoom bar and you can drag around the images. You can even zoom in and see people's faces.  http://digital.denverlibrary.org/cdm/search/searchterm/gilpin tramway/order/nosort
