Does anyone else go to "junk stores" and "flea markets" to get electronic toys, so that they can go home , take it apart, and put the "noise-maker" on his or her layout? IT'S GREAT!!

I do!  I recently purchased a large inventory of sortof new to very old engines and rolling stock.  I have been having a blast at either, getting them inot good working order or completely rebuilding them.  Great learning system.  It's getting me more acquainted with the new stuff.  I love it!

bevernie,

If you have a question something else it would be better if you posted it on your own thread that you create. That way you would get more replies. Wink

Paul, would you please explain your comment a bit deeper? I did not understand??
                                                                    THANX!!
P.S. The one thing that I notice regarding DCC is that you can put sounds on your layout. My point was that you can also do this in DC/analog, only less expensively!!
                                                                                       THANX!!

a number of notable modelers have done so over the years--from Jack Burgess and the Millers with background sounds, to John Allen who hooked a "laugh box" to be triggered whenever someone tried to operate a selected switch or uncoupler. gj
