Re: Fireless Locomotive

Or you could have saved yourself the bother and bought the Liliput L103000 fireless loco. Might be HO but doesn't look out of place in my gas works :D

Yes, as a rule of thumb you'll get twice as much in the same space in N than OO.

Pavement, roadway, trees, shrubs, grass & fencing are stuck down.

Buildings are just placed in position.

People are Tacky Waxed in place.

Vehicles wander about at random.

Re: Wagon with crane

Here is my Peco LK-35 yard crane which could be another alternative to kit bash for your project, but the jib would need to be shortened somewhat. Mine is ground based and powered by a servo motor.

Re: Latching Reed Switch

After posting the link (#3) on where to purchase these switches I decided to buy a couple myself to play with. I haven't done so yet, but some might find the instructions printed on the envelope that the device is supplied with interesting, particularly regarding the use of alternate magnetic poles ...
