Have been testing the newest sound system.  Fully stand-alone for those that want or need to build their own controller or panel, or want to use a different motor controller.

Visit the Sound/Light/Motor control page to check out the programming features.  The new 25 ton locomotive has been designed and tested, pricing and pictures coming soon.  Next up is the new 1.5" scale 0-4-0

My experience with track has been mixed.  When I started in this hobby about eight years ago I laid groovy track.  Steel prices were in the dumps and I was able to get ties pre-cut for free as they came in as packing material at the place I worked at.  But I didn't treat the ties, and laid the track right through my grass where the sprinklers kept things wet.  Right now what's left of my groovy is hanging on by a thread and a prayer, and it slated to be replaced with aluminum 'west coast' rail on EP ties.  I'll post on this endeavor when I get around to it.  My father wanted to build a portable track and wanted a local fabricator that was struggling for work to do the job, so I drew up some plans.  The price that was charged was not the thank-you one might expect when you throw a guy a bone, but the track is done and it does work.  If you do use these drawings I recommend you get at least three quotes.  The radius is around 17', I chose this so three pieces of rail could be cut from a standard 20' piece of tubing.  This is light duty, and must be put down on a flat stable surface, such as this tennis court.
