3rd Rail SD9's are coming

Had a little time this weekend to run the SD9. The previously-mentioned problem with the Scaletrax #4 switch seems to be corrected, though there is still just a slight flicker when going through the switch--no big deal. One of these days I hope to get the SD9 weathered like several of you on the forum have done so nicely. But, in the meantime, I've included a couple of recent shots with the SD9 and the rest of the team.

Nice.  Like the backdrops and how you blended the trees into it.

Just wanted to give a quick update of my experience with the step issue on the SD9's.   Some months ago when the step issue surfaced,   Scott posted that he would work on making extra steps available for those that wanted to install them themselves.   A couple of weeks ago,   I emailed Scott and asked what the status was on obtaining the extra steps for my 3 SD9's(2 B&LE and 1 DMIR).   Bear in mind that Scott was in China at the time,  but he responded quickly that the steps were available if I wanted them.   I emailed that I did want them and Scott sent off an email to the home office in California,  and have them ship the required steps that I had asked for.   Within a couple of days,  the steps were in my mailbox at no charge.   So,  my sincere thanks to Scott and his employees for the first class customer service I received.

Hate to ask this because I'll never here the end of it I'm sure but, it was mentioned a few pages back that one guy ran this model and said 0-42 was about all it could take. It's a long shot I know, but anyone here try the model on 0-36? That's my largest curve due to space and I'd love to get one of these. I doubt it could do it but I'd rather find out the answer here than buy it only to return it.

Sounds like the perfect opportunity to add 12” to the front of that layout and add that O54 loop. I have 2 of these, once I put kadees on them to close the gap they are some of the nicest and the favorite diesels in my collection.

I've actually thought about adding on to my layout for awhile. I think now's the time

That's why one of mine is in 2R!  no coupler conversion required.
