Railfanning Northwest Indiana

rrman ·
Will be in Valparaiso area for a few days. Any good hot spots? I know Porter tower is off limits (cops will arrest and jail you ). There is Valpo (our university), Chesterton, Otis, Griffith tower (but its CN I believe, and I can see Iowa CNs locally all day long). Not interested in getting "perfect pictures or videos", just some frequent action for several hours at legal spot(s). Will have my scanner so if you know the local frequencies or ARR channels that would be appreciated.

is it only the motor you are missing? the motorising kit was with the wheels with a steel rim and pick ups. all pictures and text in red on the manual are the extras who came in the motorising kit any 12v motor will do fine, i have put a faulhaber in it, a bit larger then the origional , but with some try and error it is posible post some pictures ,its easyer to see what your problem is Cor

Hi I can post pictures but all I have is literally many bags (and I mean LOTS of bags - according to the shipping weight 6 pounds of them - supposedly enough for 5 engines and 1 tender) of plastic only parts with 95% of all the pieces still on the sprue I needed your instructions just so I could start to sort all the various pieces out. I think they may have even included parts from other kits LOL There are no metal parts at all (no wheels, pickups, wires etc) so I imagine I would need what...

best thing to do can be , buy annother one cIAAOSw44BYTZvE" target="_blank">http://www.ebay.com/itm/model-...f:g cIAAOSw44BYTZvE here you have one (i think cheap) , and maybe there are forum members who can help you on this otherwise you have a shelf queen. if it is the model you like, you can take a look on the www and look for a KMT , i believe, they made a brass one how i know, i have 3 of them and doing a remotering on them Cor

Hi Moonlicht I rechecked definitely no metal parts. So it looks like its a shelf queen and a parts box item (lots of parts LOL) OH Well I might be able to buy a damaged working similar model and kit bash this to fit on the chassis but that is a project for an other time Thank you for all your effort on my behalf

Yes it's a bit sad you can't get it up and running they look good on the track crawling slowly through a maze of turnouts but then I suppose Brass one's are the same except I've never seen a brass locomotive in standard O scale and probably never will. I can live without them, I have plenty of Rivarossi 0-8-0 kits to play with and the layout is completely diesel for operations. Roo.

Yes - they are beautiful models, and in the proper scale for the track gauge. But motorizing them does little to make them better. You would really need a better engine bed and metal drivers, with a good NWSL gearbox and an 8000-series Pittman or equivalent. I had one, motorized, and loved the detail, but as a runner it sucked. The KTM version is 1/4" scale, and not as well detailed, but it will run better. They are showing up at around $450 on eBay.

That layout build was really fast, and big! You have all really gotten a lot done in a short time and I'm sure you are excited that trains are now running. Great progress!! Good luck with the train running on Saturday. If I wasn't about 8.5 hours and 550 miles away (per Google maps), I would love to come. I will have to make a road trip one of these days, would love to see your layout and store someday.

The Muffin's are running trains again - starting this Saturday!

MrMuffin'sTrains ·
It's been a long time since we have run trains for the public at MrMuffin'sTrains. We pulled the Carmel layout down last fall, and relocated our shops and inventory to Atlanta, Indiana, just north of Indianapolis. As you might have read, we bought a second building in Atlanta and moved the retail store down the street, with our shipping and receiving and train repair work shop. This let us use the entire first floor of our first building for the layout and my collection. Korber Models is...

I'm getting into 2 rail O scale and am really looking for an Atlas MP15DC in G&W livery - I'd take one that is 2 or 3 rail (I could convert to 2 rail) and it could be powered or unpowered. Truth be told, I'd be interested in whatever G&W livery equipment anyone would be willing to part with: Rochester & Southern, Buffalo & Pittsburgh, Ohio Central, Indiana & Ohio, etc. I'm not sure if any other G&W owned railroads are produced in O scale or not, but I figured...

Atlas industrial track and switches needed.

I'm new and not sure if I'm using the correct forum. Please forgive me if I was supposed to post this somewhere else. I know Atlas has this track but I was looking for something cheaper. Unfortunately, I didn't know anything about trains. I went to the hobby show in January and bought what I thought was a great deal at 50% off. Problem is nobody sells it in Indiana and 1 store said it was discontinued by one of its suppliers. Does anyone know if they are discontinuing this? I emailed Atlas...
