Best Birthday Ever!

M. Mitchell Marmel ·
Yesterday was my birthday. It was also the monthly meeting of the Sugar Creek Model Railroad Club. And someone donated what could be called a metric (poop)load of postwar and prewar Lionels in, well, let's be charitable and say 'well loved' condition. After a bit of haggling (and a modest donation to the club), the Razorback Traction Company's Home For Wayward Lionels has added this: After a bit of cleaning and tweaking, this 2032 consist was growling pleasantly along my layout last night:...

I'm open to trading for anything, but I like Norfolk Southern/CSX and all the railroads that preceded them going back to the Pennsylvania and B&O. Anything Pittsburgh or steel mill related. Pittsburgh railroads (Pittsburgh & Lake Erie, Bessemer & Lake Erie, Buffalo & Pittsburgh, Wheeling & Lake Erie). Buildings, operating accessories, etc.

Eric, The NH coil car is brand new in the original box. The PRR coil car is used in the original box. I'm going to rate the PRR as excellent because something is on the coil cover. It almost looks like the paint ran, but it might be glue that was dripped on the car. I would take less for it because of this if you're interested. Thanks, Brad

Suggestions please, for a minimum width table featuring a 57" Standard Curve.

Dreyfuss Hudson ·
Hi, Starting my Standard Gauge layout plan. It is going to be 9' in length, and will feature an outer 57" loop, and an inner 42" loop for simultaneous running. The outer will have no switches and the inner will have a turnout to a siding.  Need some thoughts about the minimum width of the table for the 57" turns.  I don't think 5 feet will cut it. I am thinking possibly 5.5'. Thoughts?

Hello, i am am thinking about getting a couple of Ross Standard Gauge switches.  Can they be wired for anti-derail, and if so, how?  I am not sure how to do it, since the switch machines are LGB and use DC power.  I could not find instructions on the Ross website. Thanks, George

McCoy Trains That McCoy Never Made

Former Member ·
The question of repainting or otherwise modifying tinplate trains is something of a delicate subject; people on both sides of the issue can feel passionately about it. I have respect for opinions on both sides. There are certainly times when repainting older tinplate is justified, and then there are times when it is very inappropriate. I have the same respect for McCoy trains as I have for Ives or other vintage brands. I find the variety of designs and graphics of McCoy trains to be very...

Hi, Long time 3RS guy, obsessed with all the details. Still am, but I received my first vintage Lionel #8 engine (in awesome shape) and some repro MTH cars as a Christmas gift.  I have seen the light. (Some blinking intermittently.) Charming is not the word. Mystical and addicting would be more appropriate.  So yeah, I'm now onto find the perfect 408e, 9e, and just bought some Lionel Traditions State Cars. (5 car set, wth 2 Illinois. ) Pray for me. :-0

The 529s usually came with a 248 box cab electric style engine, although other engines could be substituted also. A very nice find.

That falls under the category of railroadiana, and people collect that with a vengeance....there is a railroadiana show at least once a year at the state fairgrounds in Columbus, Ohio, and another one in the Chicago area...maybe Kane County? I have seen china and silverware walking through those...at the Columbus show they show up with everything including track speeders for sale....

Ah now track speeders! There's a hobby to dream about! If only I were a bit stronger and a motor head, I'd love to have one of those! I'll probably settle for a model speeder someday. You are right, I should have searched for railroadiania. I just ordered two books on RR china to educate myself. I found two that weren't that expensive (compared to some!) and kept trying to tell myself that the books and new purchases took up less room than if I spent the same money on yet another rolling...

How about the Dining Car Story. I use this book about two times a month to prepare authentic railroad meals, like roast duck, from the Northern Pacific Railroad. The Northern Pacific Railroad had hunters and fisherman on their mainline that would bring them fresh fish and game. Gary - Cheers from The Detroit and Mackinac Railway Click on photo to enlarge.

Trainroomgary, This is mighty fine. How do I get an invitation to your house for some of that duck? Looking at your book reminds me of a scan available on the web of a 1938 PRR promo piece on PRR dining cars. The floor plan is amazing in how small the space is for the staff to work in. (And as a two-time college-era short order cook, I've seen some dinky spaces.) Who would know it to look at a lovely MTH or Lionel dining car model that a large section of the kitchen is taken up by a...

Trainroomgary, I also have that book (and use it) along with one called "From the Dining Car" by James D. Porterfield. He also had a book called "Dining by Rail" which I think I loaned out and never got back. Those things happen, I guess.

Ahhh, railroadiana...there was once a great railroadiana shop in Dobbs Ferry, NY, run by a great guy, Fred Arone. If you are not familiar with the area, it is in Westchester County, just north of the Bronx. The store was called the Depot Attic and it was run out of a basement (I believe it was the house Fred grew up in). Fred's dad was the former station agent of the New York Central's Putnam Division station at nearby Ardsley, NY. Fred was a former New York Central Police Investigator.

This was the first china that Amtrak used after their start in 1971. Dad brought these pieces home when he worked for Amtrak and did an audit of their dining car supplies. They're really not that collectible and I use 'em daily. The flower vase holds a homemade flower by my daughter and I use the sugar pack holder as a napkin holder.

One thing that I didn't think about or mention, is that one day I WILL own and use a 140L tunnel on the layout. Don't know if you read the other current thread on that tunnel, but it requires a corner of 42"curves. (The tunnel has 90 deg. openings.) So, complicating matters is the fact that at least one corner has to be all 42".

Kirk does make 1/2 57 curves. 1 and 1/2 57 would replace 1 42 or 2 72s. 1 42 would replace 2 72s. A mixed circle of 4 42s and 8 72s would be 12 pieces. This actually makes a 57 circle. It could be a little bigger or smaller than a 57 circle depending on actual measurements. Of course the footprint would be different. One caveat is: If running mixed track 72-42-72 for a 1/4 circle or 72-72-42 for a 1/4 circle your minimum diameter will be the smallest diameter track. Trains like a Brute,Super...

moderneraSG ·
One thing to be aware of is that the 57 curves are harder to work with in conjunction with other curve diameters. The reason being, they are based on 12pcs/circle, or a 30 degree slice of the pie. The original 42's are based off of 45 degree sections and the 72 and 87 curves are 16pcs/circle or 22.5 degrees. Doesn't seem like a big deal, but when you start combining curves for a more transitional curve, it quickly becomes apparent. I need to talk with Kirk at USA Track about maybe offering...

Go 6 feet wide and use half 72 and half 57 for the outer loop. Then half 57 and half 42 for the inner loop. The big stuff will look a whole lot better.

Dreyfus Yes a 42" inner loop. With the panels being 31.5", Kirk at USA Track LLC made them for us already sized correctly. Currently myself and Bill Senyak have ten panel sets. There will be 3 more guys with ten panel sets not too far in the future. Bill and I have combined our panels in the past to make a 21" long display. Steve
