Central Railroad of New Jersey Baldwin VO1000 1062 is seen here with the Jersey City service train. The 1062 was delivered to the CNJ in April 1944. It and sister unit 1043 were the only CNJ VO1000s to feature curved trim on the battery box cover and at the corners of the steps as Baldwin eliminated this styling in favor of simplified angles before the balance of the CNJ VO1000s were built. The 1062 is pictured in the paint scheme which debuted on switchers in 1950. The locomotive was built...

Hi Bob (CNJ 3676): I think you are starting to make me a fan of New Jersey! Rusty: Sometimes it's actually hard to be clever every week, isn't it? I love the 44 tonner picture! Mike: Your construction zone looks awesome and your #31 seems like it's doing a great job "taking care of business!". Tom (MNCW): I promise to get back to steam next week! Have a great Saturday guys!

Yay! Another SW Sat has rolled around! Great pictures already so far. Since I moved three months ago I have lost my tiny layout. I am in a bit of layout withdrawal Soon I hope to start a new one. So as of now I have no pictures of my own switchers so I am posting prototype pictures. This week I am posting pics of a pair of Amtrak GE 80 Tonner switchers. I think they look realy sharp in the current paint scheme. It is interesting to spot the few differences (like the number fonts) between the...

Rich, not pick to pick nits but the caboose in your first post is Western Maryland not C&O. I do love those K-Line Plymouths. I still think they are really cool small units with great detail for the $$. Not a switcher but an image of one of the cars from the Merci Train. A 50 some car train donated a car to each state and after WW2 from a grateful France seemed appropriate for today. Here is Maine's car from the Merci Train Website.

These guys have been working on this downtown area for about 6 or 7 years now! Nothing ever gets done.

That American Flyer 0-6-0 has very good lines. Good thing it is not mine; it would get 2-railed in a heartbeat, with footplates. Probably destroy its antique value, but not its charm.

Found this brass custom painted Weaver tender today at Allentown for $50.00...its a orphan with no loco.Its supposed to have USRA 0-6-0 in front of it.I bought for maybe a future project.When I took the shell off I saw there was still a directional unit in it so I took a chance and hooked it to a old Williams B6 that I haven't used in over twenty years and it ran !!! Its a mish mosh but it works !

Rich, Thank you. I really like it. Frankenstine is left over from a bunch of characters my wife and daughter put on the layout from time to time when I wasn't there. They got all of them from the thrift store. They move around and I never know who or where one will turn up. Lots of fun for all.

The Canton Paint Scheme is really one of the best out there. The Maryland flag I always found attractive (maybe because my family has lived there since the 1600's) and the way it is applied to the engines and caboose is really playful while being respectful to it.

Re: K-line Plymouth-Upgrade advice?

There's no way any of the current DCS stuff would have a chance of fitting into the Plymouth! You could tow it around in a car behind it and probably do OK. I have one that I'm also going to upgrade, I'll be using the ERR MiniCommander 2 with smoke control. I'm guessing I may have to do some "creative" alterations to the cab configuration to fit the board in. I'd like to have sound, but I think that's a total pipe dream from looking at it.

Could there be a chance of modifying the hood for the electronics, e.g, make it taller? Or would that require too much hassle?

Re: K-line Plymouth-Upgrade advice?

That's for you to decide. I will hasten to point out, the stock fan driven K-Line smoke unit consumes much of the space under the hood, it's pretty large.

Dan, Thanks for the like on my old upgrade post! I'm sorry I didn't shoot any photos during the upgrade. I gutted the cab of figures and stood the board up vertically. I used a piece of card stock to insulate the back side and shield the solder side from view. I left the smoke unit in, but not wired for command control. I'm certain the unit would need a different heat element as is smokes to much at command track voltage. My key factor for success was patience. I spread this out over a few...

Re: K-line Plymouth-Upgrade advice?

Actually, the TMCC board will provide it half-wave track power, and it works fine that way. The same smoke unit is in the K-Line Porter, and I upgraded that and wired it's smoke unit directly to the smoke output of the MC-II board. For the Plymouth, I'm seriously tempted to replace the smoke unit with the MTH HO smoke unit and try to fit the MC-II in the body and sound in the cab.

i had mine done by train america studios many years ago it runs great with smoke but the inside of the cab is were the electronics are and they put new lights in the loco due to the voltage they send me the inside of the cab were the enginneer is i get alot of people loving what they done just wish they still sold the parts i want to do more of them

GRJ, Good to know about the half wave. Thanks. However, I think the bd. I used was feature set for a blinking strobe as it came from a Trackmobile. I can't remember if it had an extra output to do smoke or not. Good luck on your plan!

I have no idea about the trackmobile, I know that's a very small board. I prefer something that will be able to pull a few cars without risk of burning up the board.

i have one of those that was upgraded to TMCC years ago by Train America before Mike Reagan joined Lionel. It runs very nicely but no sound, and the smoke unit was removed. Now, years later, I lost the TMCC ID number and I haven't run it in a long time. Like the prototype the engine isn't very stron and can only handle two or three cars. Paul Fischer

Re: K-line Plymouth-Upgrade advice?

There should be a RUN/PGM switch to set the TMCC ID, so losing the old one shouldn't be a big issue. I have no intention of removing the smoke, I think having it run command with smoke would be very cool.

I have 4 of the Atlas F-9s and 2 of the C-liners. I bought the F-9s years and years and years ago and the C-liners off eBay within the last year. I don't have a layout up only a loop of track. I don't run my trains very often and the ones that get run the least are the F-9s and the C-liners. Surprisingly, they all run very well for how old they are. I really like them a lot. F-9s pull pretty good but can't pull a lot of cars. Don't think I've ever pulled any cars with the C-Liners. Sorry, I...
