On ramps for elevated sections?

Kirk R ·
Hi folks. I'm working on my first layout (10'x12') and I'm considering an 072 outer loop raised about 6 inches or so above the rest. Been toying with the idea of an "on ramp" of sorts but that pushes grades to about 4%, takes up real estate below and you need to back up to get off (which I suppose is doable). Are there any compelling reasons why I'd want such a ramp? I think I can make it work but may need a "hand" to get up the ramp. Would really appreciate some feedback on this. Kirk

Lionel 691PMB2101 Powered Railsounds 4 Motherboard

Sid's Trains ·
So Lionel shows they still have some of the old RS4 powered motherboards. That's fine and all , but in comparison to the err manual for the old Rail sounds commander there is a slight difference. The Lionel is missing the volume pot and instead has an extra 3 pins next to the speaker connection. My question is what is the wiring situation with the Lionel board compared to the ERR board. I am planning to buy one from Lionel and would like to the know the different wiring for the Lionel one.

A favorite photo of a favorite locomotive. Cruising with my son yesterday near the Pacific Ocean and drove by an old water tank much like my model, but shorter. It was tilted at about 20 degrees--very picturesque. This was dairy country north of San Francisco just outside village of Valley Ford. A narrow gauge served this area before 1930 but doubt water tank railroad issue.
