    • Can you 3D print? I made all of mine and some for my club from a Thingiverse file.

      I can send you the STL file.

    • Back to the original reason I started this thread, some progress pictures, and also asking if anyone has a good suggestion for inexpensive end of track bumpers, since this build is all volunteer (meaning I am paying for it and giving it to the club)

       

      Timesaver folded up, 2' x 2' by about 9" (track on both outer sides)

       

       

      From the back, swing out the 2 end panels:

       

      Bingo, ultra light and portable switching layout

       

      So I need some clip on end of track bumpers for the over-enthusiastic engineer, suggestions?

    • Friday will begin the second 1 1/2 inch scale Ops of this Winter Season.  It will be setup on Friday, Ops all day and into the evening Friday and Saturday night and continue until 2.  After that, is the gathering of cars and putting everything away.  Almost as much fun as the OPs.

      .

      All that want to participate or just watch are welcome. It is based on the traditional Car Card/Waybill format, but with the added challenge of extra riding cars to carry the switching crews. There are also Passenger Trains running on the hour to a schedule and they have priority. There is usually room on one of these trains, if someone wants to just observe and ride. V.I.P. treatment is given to those that R.S.V. P., but walk-ins are always welcome. Just don't be surprised if you get pulled into joining the fun.

      .

      Yes, I copied some of this from my other post.

      So I had some pictures sent to me from Andy's and I'm really disappointed with Bruce!  Out of all that were there here I thought he was the responsible one.  Sigh ...guess not... Shame on you Bruce!

      Katie has the throttle for MEM-BLU.  Tyler has the throttle for the coal train.

      Billy (Bruce) Joel making an appearance.... Which kid has the throttle ? Young man in the blue t-shirt ?

      This picture shows it from the other side...just a few seconds apart!

      L-R - that's Jane behind the camera, Katie, Anthony, and Tyler (with the throttle).

      You missed a darn good one, Rooster!

      The boy in blue usually had the camera taking pictures. Now the young lady was normally asking for clearance to get her train to her next stop.
