Thereís one here in town thatís half trains and half military models.  No RC.  That means an adult Model building mindset in the store.  Trainwise itís not so bad with structures kits, RTR plastic cars, basic track, and best of all, a pretty good stock of scratch building stuff like sheet basswood and styrene, styrene shapes, stuff for galvanized tin roofs sand such.  And there is a very good supply of paint too albeit military oriented.  You can find what you need there pretty much, although you canít browse a hundred kits like you could in the Golden Days of Yore.

Yes one resistor is a few cents and ordering 1 is a bit difficult.
As a radio ham i have plenty on the shelf.
An alternative is if you have an old radio or amplifier laying around.
The pcb inside has plenty of components.

A Tyco train more than likely has 'horn-hook' type couplers. If you're real careful, you may be able to get the hook from the T&F car to latch onto the horn-hook coupler. But there's no guarantee they'll stay coupled.

The reality is the couplers on T&F cars and locos aren't really intended to be compatible with regular HO couplers used in the USofA.

Can a "Tyco" train connect with my Thomas & Friends Troublesome Truck #1?

Ez track is basically train set track, not designed with yard operations in mind.  Iíve got EZ track on parts of my mainline and the first switch at the yard throat is EZ No 5, but the rest of the yard is another brand easier to use in a yard ladder.

Bear in mind that Terry's photos are using the standard 18r switches with a 30 degree angle of turn on the diverging route. That makes the parallel tracks spaced much wider than necessary, they appear to be on about 5 or 6 inch centers. By using #4 or #5 you should be able to tightn up that spacing considerably, even using EZ track you should be able to get the spacing down to 3" or so. Using switches without roadbed, like atlas, shinohara or peco will allow you to space your tracks as close as 2" apart.
