Just the title made me laugh...good job, though. I'd still be searching in the complicated spots.

I've got a different situation with my Climax, and I'm sorry to say, it's much simpler. It needs more weight. I've already got a caboose hooked up to it for sound, and other than the speaker it's hollow. Just needs weight.

Wow...I'm going to inspect my Climax now.

When I get to the point where I start building my new layout, I'll post pics. And it should be soon. I just finished what was supposed to be a weekend project of moving a closet wall. Of course, it wasn't very simple. Almost everything went wrong. From poor insulation, to NO STUDS. Long story that I'll tell later, but it's done. More room in the basement, and more room to add to the 22-20' space I already have!

As you can tell in my signature, the plans are almost done, too. I'll be sure to post those when they're done.

Closest I can get to elevated is Walthers' Proto 1000 NYC subway.
Closest I can get to regional Chicago is Kato's F40PH.
This one's just the HO shell, but they do offer it ready-to-run.
5  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / DigiToys Systems...Out Of Business? on: March 30, 2008, 06:41:37 PM
DigiToys Systems creates the Winlok CTC computer program. They recently went out of business, with no explaination. Their business was good (they sold a lot of these great programs), so I was wondering if anyone here knew.

You can still get Winlok here free, but they give you no support:

They say you'll have to find a "user chat room" for support. I found out about Winlok in an article called "Operating Signals with User-Friendly Software" in one of the recent Model Railroaders.

But, if Winlok is out and up for grabs, and they had great business, why doesn't Digitrax buy them? NCE has a similar system to Winlok, but last time I checked, Digitrax doesn't.

K4s & T1. There is the streamlined K4s, too, but everyone you find is in brass. Great for all you brass collectors! Nice model, though:

Does that say Wilmington & Western? There's an observatory I go to in Deleware and that scenic route goes through that area. Although I haven't been down there in a while, it must have finally re-opened. The route had major damage done to it in the floods of '03 and '05, so they weren't running for a while. Here's the link:
The observatory is at Mt. Cuba, the picnic area shown is down the mountain.

The flood restoration page:

I got to get down there!

The H-8 is the only one they have with sound, isn't it? I've got one of Rivarossi's Big Boys. It's a good model.

Rivarossi needs to remake those Heislers. I found a site that deals them...but they're in Europe Undecided.

IF it's in Philly, "mad city" is a GREAT name!

I know Bachmann is in Philly...I'm still trying to figure out how they stay there. Tongue

Sorry Bachmann.  Embarrassed

I never thought I'd see the words "JC Penny" on this site...I might have just said it for the second or third time!

I always love pictures like these...even though they always forget S guage and stop at G. I still have yet to see a picture that includes any Narrow gauge of any scale.

Once I get my licence, there'll be another one of those drivin' aorund the country.

It's a wonderful idea! A train with AIRBAGS!
