Video: Running TMCC locomotives on the West Penn

I finally figured out how to reprogram TMCC engines and add them into the DCS system. As a result, the D.A.R.E. Model Railroad Club can now run several shelf-bound engines on the layout with the DCS remote. Click on the Youtube button for full-screen viewing. Speaking of full-screen viewing, does anyone know why the forum doesn't allow viewing videos full-screen anymore?

overhead lighting for layout room

IRON HORSE ·
I am in the process of building my new layout after a move.  This is my 4th layout and I'm trying to a different approach to lighting.  I've installed two sets of overhead lights with dimmer switches, 7 in each set, in a drop ceiling.  One set will be regular white LED flood light bulbs and the other will be blue flood lights to simulate, you guessed it, night time.  My question is, can you paint LED white lights blue?  I don't know, otherwise, where to buy them --...

Lionel M-10000 Miniature Replica Builders Plate

dbier ·
Hi Everyone, I'm a new member and not certain I'm posting this in the correct/best forum (please advise if not). Does anyone know if Lionel's Century Club UP M-10000 came with a miniature replica builders plate? I and several other locomotive builder plate collectors heard that Lionel issued miniature replica builders plates with several Century Club locomotives (NYC Niagara, UP M-10000, PRR Sharknose, FM Trainmaster and NYC Empire State Hudson) - but have not seen one for the UP M-10000.

NO LONGER NEEDED - Lionel Empire State Express 5429 PT Tender front bulkhead

Hi, I know this is a long shot but I'm looking for the front bulkhead (the molded plastic end with the ladders) for the separate sale Century Club II PT Tender (6-38097). Lionel no longer has them available on their website and I understand that although the current PT Tender bulkheads are available and look the same they will not fit the CC II Tender shell (if someone knows that they will, let me know). The other option would be to purchase a complete new shell or a new stripped shell...
