But it also depends upon your requirement that what type of soldering you have to do mostly and what type of the components and PCBs etc. So give the details of your requirement. And before choosing any please check the specifications of each with care.
Joe, I just don't understand why they are like that.

Pete, I never considered using my layout build log. I'll run that by my bro-in law this weekend and see what he thinks. I'm headed back down there.
No way on the boss. About 2 years ago I applied for a local pipeliner's position at the pumping station here. Pay is amazing and they take care of their employees. I knew enough people that I got invited to test there. So, I told my head boss at the time. We were good friends and even shared an office when I first started working at the school. When I told him he said he wasn't mad. But from that moment on he treated me differently. He wouldn't even speak to me for a while. That being said, he quit a year ago and we have a new superintendent. But, I'm not going down that road again. less

Lionel products are all operated at sonic speeds. It appears to be the rule. I suspect this speed dedication comes from an understood agreement with vendors upon purchase. Even when directly next to a modular large scale layout at a show, Lionel operators are compulsed to run their trains at sonic speeds.
Watch that video again. Notice the slooooo speed of all the trains. This video may be an important document showing either social influence or an aberration in Lionel operation. less

If you click on the link in the post you get to the Price List. 165 Euro w/o tax. Unfortunately the euro improved to 1.2, so it will now cost you $185. Still a good price.
I think Harald said the mail cost had gone up too.
Shipping as parcels with DHL up to 2 kits - 35,99 Euro ($40) up to 4 kits - 47,99 Euro

The big question is : Are Roosters as smart as chickens?
Well, ALTHOUGH apparently chickens are smart:
"What we’ve learned about the avian brain and behavior in just the last 15 years contradicts hundreds of years of misinformed views about chickens and other birds. Much of what was previously thought to be the exclusive domain of human / primate communication, brain and cognitive function, and social behavior is now being discovered in chickens and other birds. It’s nothing short of a revolution in our understanding of chickens!
"Recent scientific research into chicken behavior confirms what many who have observed chickens closely for years have long known to be true: chickens are far more intelligent and cognitively sophisticated than previously believed. While intelligence level is not a morally relevant criteria for how we treat others, these findings can help us debunk long-standing prejudices and harmful stereotypes about chickens that c... less

Russ, I'm with Vic (sorry to not be in attendance). Trains are on the siding as my website consumes most of my time--for no monetary gain! But I'll bethinking of the BAGRS next week.
Joe, we all need a break... Come on up for a couple of days. This weekend there are some spectacular layouts open and since they are pre-convention they are free to all!

The 415 series has always been one of my favorites due to it's distinctive appearance. While I'm not a modern era modeler I would be interested in acquiring one of these as if I need yet another project. When it's ready for prime time please let us know. I don't do Farcebook !
I knew it!

I just need to get off my butt, and plant my butt down at my workbench, and letter the darn things. Now I have 4 gondolas and a caboose to letter too. So I need a nice rainy day, to sit down and gettem lettered.

Sorry for your loss. Obviously, your dad had a huge impact on your life, creatively and emotionally, I'm sure. Condolences to the whole family.
My Challenge build from two years has finally found a home!
Wow, John you might have some bridge clearance issues with that. Hope this is not de railing the thread.
Wondered what Cypress knees are, never heard the term before, but now I want some, they look great and can be used almost anywhere. Plus being cypress rot should not happen soon.

On the end of the boxes there is a line drawing of the item in question, along with its model number, and printed on the label is "Made in...". 2 of the boxes I checked were made in Germany, and one was Made in the Czech Republic. So its is printed on the label, if one takes the time to look.
As for the Polks Generation Next stuff, its in the same Aristo yellow boxes, with the Polks Generation Next printed on them where Aristocraft used to be printed on them. less

I mean, channel 1 on the 2 channel jobbies is like channel 2 or 3 on the 10 channel jobbies. Something like that. I only have one TE, thanks RJ, so I don't have to worry about mixing and matching different batches together.
