CUSTOM "O" DECALS ·
Coming to our L.E.D. page will be the most used gauge of wire for model trains now days. We will be offering 26AWG SUPER FLEX wire in ten (10) foot rolls. Somewhat higher in price than the Teflon coated 26AWG wire but well worth the difference do to it's flexing capabilities when used for a tether or other applications where flexibility is a must.

1/43 scale Greyhound "super scenicruiser" bus size

Former Member ·
I just received  a 1/43 scale Super Scenicruiser bus from France. It took almost a month to get it.  I was going to place on my train table with all the other 1/43 scale cars and trucks.  I know that 1/43 scale is a little large but I'm fine with that.  This bus is 11" long and 2 1/2 wide........... I can put at least 3 cars beside it.  Would you say that is 1/43 scale? My lionel city bus is a lot smaller. I think it is 1/48 scale................ Were these...

MTH DCS WI FI and Super TIU,etc.

I am guilty of not reading my copy of Barry's new book before I ordered my DCS WI Fi unit.  I made an assumption that some of the marketing materials meant that it had the same capability as my normal remote to run my layout that operates in "super TIU".  I now understand more after I went back and read the new book.

K-Line Super-Snap Switch Problems

BGinTN ·
I purchased these switches because I had read that they are super smooth. Well, I am having problems. 1. A momentary short occurs when a locomotive enters the diverging (curved) route. 2. Some of my postwar diesels (e.g., 2333) derail when the truck hits the frog. I can see that the frog casting is too shallow, or the flanges are too deep. Any fixes for the above? Thanks!!

O scale model of a heavy duty 8-axle gondola with standard underframe.

pro hobby ·
O scale model of a heavy duty 8-axle gondola with standard underframe. This is a scratchbuilt O scale 8-axle heavy duty general purpose gondola typically used for MOW operations. The car is 18 inches (72 scale feet) in length over coupler faces. The model has "articulated" truck bolsters which allow operation on smaller radius curves and turnouts. This model has a high side 52 foot gondola body. It also could be used as a crane tender. Note: The model as shown as a "standard" underframe.

Question about Monongahela Railroad Super 7s

pittsburghrailfan ·
When GE rebuilt the U23Bs into Super 7s, did they keep the original carbody, and graft on a new cab and radiator section? Or was an entirely new shell fabricated? In other words, if I were to kitbash this engine, would I start with a U23B donor locomotive (e.g. from Atlas O) and just add the cab and radiator from a narrow-cab DASH-8, or would I need to craft an entirely new body?

Postwar Celebration steam sets, what can I expect?

ricka1 ·
I am thinking about picking up a few of the Postwar Celebration Series sets. I have my eye on the Super O Freight Set at the moment. I'm curious if there are others that would be willing to describe their experience with the set. I'm interested in locomotive performance, quality of the cars, and whether it's a good value. I'm not a "postwar purist" but enjoy the nostalgic look and feel of that era. I do like TMCC, sound, and a good smoke unit, along with smooth reliable performance. Thanks!

I read somewhere that you should superglue things together on glass since CA doesn't stick to glass. I don't find that to be true I have some wooden buildings to assemble and want to reinforce the insides with stripwood and CA instead of wood glue since i painted both sides to help prevent warping. What can i put under the walls that the CA won't stick to if it bleeds thru? It's a nice thought that I use some kind of applicator that puts a minuscule drop of glue down but I don't. I've tried...

Super-chuffer cab light flicker

Super Chuffer Headlight Circuit

Could Lionel License The Construction And Sale Of A Full Complement Of Super "O" Track To Another Manufacturer?

Dennis GS-4 N & W No. 611 ·
The companion thread includes a compelling case for why a number of hobbyists find Super "O" track to be a very appealing alternative to the other track systems available. Based on the fact that Lionel has not chosen to reissue Super "O" to date, one could logically surmise that this decision is based upon valid business reasons according to their evaluation. Obviously, Super "O" is not everyone's favorite, and those hobbyists would justifiably not be interested in the track system. And, a...

Guide to the Addams Family Super O Layout

The Addams Family Lionel train layout is intriguing for many reasons. First, it has the look and feel of a Lionel Display Layout, which were regularly produced by Lionel as a way for department stores to display and operate Lionel trains and accessories. There is a large following of these layouts. For example, we have in the “Track Plans and Layout Design” Forum on OGR, a 9-page thread on Lionel dealer display layouts.
