16  Discussion Boards / Plasticville U.S.A. / Re: N scale Plasticville buildings on: August 24, 2017, 07:33:52 AM
To Modern Trainfan  : If you are going to want  N -scale structure  kits  you are going to have to  Check out the  Walthers website .  They  have Kits in the scale you are working in.   Bachmann  also does not make assembled  structure in HO scale .   Nobody does everything , it is not cost effective , but the hobby  does have alternatives available .   J2.

To dutchbuilder :  the Overland Limited  is a DC  system & therefore  has no decoder .   I am curious as how he managed to get  25 volts of power into a system that should not have been able to do so . I actually own the Overland Limited Set .  Though you may be correct about the short circuit , I would also check out the functionality of the controller to see if it can operate  any other  DC  locomotive .  J2.

To  RedlegJim :  there is a gapped  HO 9inch straight piece of  NS gray Easy track available  that is made to use with reversing  loops . Please check in the Bachmann Web store for particlars .   John2.

to sallygoodin :  Go to Parts , service & info section . Go to  "N" scale parts  find  wheels . these will be  in universal parts . It appears they come  in  only one
size for  "N" scale .  John2 . Good Luck .

evidence you suggest that  dsadiver has never used this site before and is a "newby" . J2.

To Gold Star :  Your EZ  Command  is a basic  DCC controller  it has no facilities to  Change  CV s . It is time for you to get information about the systems you are trying to control . Also  EZ command does not allow a computer to  access your controller  what so ever .  Sorry about your lack of experience with technology .

Exactly  How old is this train ?   What  axels  on which  loco  or  cars are broken ?   Parts on very old  equipment  are exceedingly  hard to find ? John2.

25  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Switches for the e-z track turn out on: March 16, 2017, 04:36:54 PM
Bil123 : I assume that you are making a crossover with the two turnouts , if so yes you can wire both turnouts to one switch . you will either be going straight through or going across so it makes sense to have only one switch to  throw. John2.
26  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: A few photos and a short video I took in December at my local club on: March 14, 2017, 12:37:39 PM
Photography Like every other endeavor takes practice . You have to be able to visualize  what you want to show  and what techniques  will allow you to get the results you want . With digital camera equipment you  can go through your  images  much more easily than with  film based images where you had to wait for development  and printing  or  development and projection .  Images  captured  to Photo-CD s allow you the capability  of viewing your photos  on both Computer Monitor & also  Flat screen Televisions .  John2.
27  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Volume Adjustment? on: March 14, 2017, 12:19:50 PM
plint;Your EZ-command does not allow you to change CV's .  Look for someone who has  a more advanced  DCC system t change  CV's. John2.

reminds me of the electric CTA buses  we used to have in the Fifties & early  Sixties and also the trolley poled elevated trains that ran outside of the city like the Skokie Swift on the far northside .  Those would spark from time to time . I wonder if those will make a comeback  again to further reduce pollution in the cities.

29  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / DCC Multi-meters ; on: February 24, 2017, 10:17:41 AM
Does anyone  make  a multi-meter capable of reading  DCC electrical  information  directly  ?  John2.

To  Nightwing  :  Since  crossings  have to be electrically  insulated from each direction of travel   and wired around to have continuity in the same direction ,  I doubt you will  be  able to  remove the  rails from the crossing  .  Doing so would destroy the crossing electrically .    Everything can be disassembled  but restoring
it to be functional  is a totally  different  problem . John2.
