Running trains before going to bed

DennyM ·
I have gotten to the point that when I go down to the basement to turn off the lights and layout, I run what ever is on the track for two or three minutes. Sometimes I do that before I leave the house too. Talk about being bitten by the 'bug', I think I was swarmed.

A Postwar Lionel Train Layout GoPro Ride Video

TrainWizard5972 ·
As part of my side business of Train Wizard Productions I am proud to present the first layout I have completed for a client. The benchwork, track wiring and most of the buildings were already in place but the owner had no time to do scenery, structure lights and had some wiring issues he could not figure out. Over the course of three weeks (3-4 days a week as our individual schedules allowed) I built roads, wired lights, created ridges with trees, modified buildings, added ties and ballast...

Last September, I took one of my train club's nonfunctioning MTH locomotives to the LHS (Imperial Train Co.) to see what the problem was and if it could be fixed. When I got there, the employees at the store told me they no longer did repairs that might involve replacing a board (which is, in and of itself, disturbing), and gave me the name and number of a repairman by the name of Alan Forrester. Alan agreed that it was likely a circuit board problem of some sort, and told me it would take a...
