Their plans are just a way of selling as many pieces of track as possible with no regard to usability. Sidings so short they are almost unusable and stations too short to take a train etc
And looking at the plan, I agree RJ - sidings too short..

Re: Flashing controller screen

I am sure most of us have done that accidental short at least once in our hobby so you are not the first to do that nor will you be the last ;)

In fact thinking about it, as I have been in this hobby for over 60 plus years, I have done my fair share of short circuits.

Re: AMAZON SCAM E-MAIL

And with auto systems, one can still get e-mails even if you don't tell anyone. Computers can generate addresses and send them & if they don't bounce because the address doesn't exist, it goes to someone e-mail inbox.

Re: Stalling on Electrofrog points

And a voltmeter will tell if the frog is correctly powered.

AS WTD said, diesels are better on frogs as they have more pick ups and the bogies can rock better than fixed wheel based steam.

Re: 'I have lost control'

One advantage of grand-children is that that normally go back to their home & let you "play" in peace - not like your own children.......( that is, if they are interested in the hobby)
